From The Bahamas to Antigua, the Caribbean’s Best Historic Hotels

Graycliff, Nassau, Bahamas

 By Caribbean Journal Staff

The best hotels take you somewhere. They transport you, taking you to another plane, another dimension of comfort, serenity and experience.

The best historic hotels take you to another time — by a carefully curated cocktail of history, luxury and authenticity.

The Caribbean has an impressive portfolio of historic properties — some that have always been hotels, others that have taken historic buildings and meticulously transformed them into havens of hospitality.

From The Bahamas to Antigua, you can find beautiful historic hotels across the Caribbean, all with that rare ability to take places centuries old and make them, well, timeless.  Read more >>

No Justice for Women in The Bahamas

Dear Readers,

This week, our editorial team, like many others around the country, were horrified to see a Grand Bahama man with well documented mental health issues punched to the ground in the name of social media clout. In the aftermath of such a public atrocity, it was refreshing to see the swift, strong and decisive action taken by local law enforcement in arresting and charging the individual responsible. At the same time however we continue to be baffled by the lack of consistency shown by local police in addressing other equally distressing instances of violence against those most vulnerable among us.

Bahamas on alert for coronavirus spread

Nassau, Jan 23 (Prensa Latina) The Bahamas government today remains on alert for the global spread of the coronavirus, which has caused more than a dozen deaths in at least five nations.

In the opinion of Health Minister Duane Sands, the virus could become an epidemic and the Caribbean island is beginning to take precautions although there is no current need for changes to the borders.

At a press conference, Sands expressed the information exchanges with the Pan American Health Organization and the World Health Organization (WHO), in the interest of increasing the capacity to detect this virus.

Although the situation is being monitored, the minister said the virus is far from being the greatest threat to public health in the Bahamas.

According to WHO data, the virus, 2019-nCoV, first appeared last month in the city of Wuhan, China, and since then, cases have been reported in other parts of the Chinese country, Japan, Thailand, South Korea and the United States.

Medical studies say the virus can cause coughing, breathing difficulties, fever and, in some cases, pneumonia, which cannot be treated with antibiotics.  (source)
