We visited Sky Beach and Eleuthera December 2011 looking for the seclusion that was promoted on every travel site that we scoured while choosing the right vacation. Eleuthera and Sky Beach did not disappoint. After our arrival, we realized that we were the only guests at Sky Beach for the first three days of our vacation. The other quests did not show up until the end of the week. This was most excellent, as it aided in the privacy and seclusion we were looking for. We walked the beach for miles in either direction, with our footprints being the only prints in the sand. We were fortunate enough to be at Sky Beach during a full moon. It was a clear night, live band playing by the pool, perfect weather–it was magical!!!
We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the management and staff at Sky Beach. We were treated as family. Chavala, Hubert, Eugene, Selena, Alexis, Theo and all the others, whom we never got to hang out with and talk to but know they aided in our experience, were all so friendly, inviting, caring, and happy. Chavala and Hubert even gave us a ride into town to pick up a few things and do some sightseeing, coming back to pick us up and drive us back to the Club. They also called a friend to help us get a rental car for a day. The cleaning staff were like stealth drones–you never seen them but they took care of business.
We ate, drank, and relaxed switching between the infinity pool, Jacuzzi, and pink sand beaches. The food was delicious. Being an outer island, and that some of the food is flown in, we weren’t sure what to expect. You could taste the freshness and the passion put into the preparation of the food. We sampled just about everything on the menu and could not find one thing to complain about. The drinks were very tasty. We recommend the strawberry daiquiri and ti punch. Ask for a topper….you won’t be disappointed.
The accommodations were just right for the two of us. We chose a bungalow to stay in as we did not expect to spend much time in the room. The bathroom shower is amazing, with the dual heads and stone pebble flooring. The bath tub is large and inviting. All with a view leading from the front doors down to the palm trees and ocean. There is a large king size bed, where we slept like babies every night. It was so peaceful that we slept until 9-10am every morning; even though that was not our intentions. There is a small refrigerator if you feel like stocking up on some snack items or beverages. Every morning we were greeted by our friendly salamander on the side patio.
Eleuthera is a beautiful island that thrives off its secluded environs. This is a place for those who do not want to deal with the large, rude crowds of tourists and chaos. If you can live disconnected from the fast-paced, ever-on-the-go, day-to-day, this is definitely the jackpot.
