The Graycliff Experience: Luxury, Legacy, and the Art of Indulgence

The Graycliff Experience

Nestled in the heart of Nassau, the iconic Graycliff Hotel offers an unforgettable journey into Bahamian heritage, fine dining, and the captivating world of cigars. Whether arriving on foot from the cruise pier or taking a leisurely taxi ride, your experience begins the moment you step onto the elegant grounds of the Graycliff estate. Prepare to be captivated.

A Wine Connoisseur’s Paradise

Your dedicated guide will unveil the treasures of Graycliff, beginning with a descent into their renowned wine cellar – the largest in the entire Caribbean. This extraordinary collection boasts over 175,000 bottles, personally curated by Paolo Garzaroli, expert sommelier and son of Graycliff’s visionary owner. Marvel at the rare vintages, including bottles worth thousands, all housed within the historic structure’s cool depths.

A Culinary Delight

After exploring the cellar’s treasures, ascend into one of Graycliff’s exquisite dining rooms for a delectable lunch. Fresh, seasonal ingredients and masterful preparation define the cuisine, and your meal will be perfectly complemented by a refreshing punch or a carefully selected glass of wine.

A Journey into the World of Cigar

The Graycliff Experience reaches its pinnacle with a visit to the on-site cigar factory. Here, in this intimate space, you’ll witness the artistry of 14 skilled torcedores hand-rolling some of the world’s finest cigars. These artisans were personally selected by Avelino Lara, a legend in the cigar world whose expertise shaped the renowned Cohiba brand in Cuba. Now happily retired, Lara presides over his own small, exquisite factory adjacent to the hotel.

Indulge in Cigar Culture

Not only will you have the opportunity to purchase these handcrafted cigars – a perfectly legal and treasured souvenir to bring back to the U.S. – but the Graycliff Experience allows you to savor the moment fully.
