Graycliff Hotel

The Graycliff Hotel, originally built in 1740, is a historic and iconic landmark in the heart of Nassau, Bahamas. It was constructed by Captain John Howard Graysmith, a notorious Caribbean pirate who commanded the famed schooner Graywolf. His treasure-plundering exploits across the Spanish Main brought him both wealth and notoriety, and Graycliff, situated adjacent to the Government House and a stone’s throw from pristine white sand beaches, stands as a testament to his affluent life.

The Graycliff Hotel, consisting of eighteen tastefully decorated guest rooms and spacious cottage suites, is far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city’s casinos and nightlife. It is an intimate and serene world unto itself. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a grand family home where every guest feels welcomed and cherished. There are four categories of rooms and suites, all meticulously appointed with antiques and luxury amenities, each carrying a name that exudes the charm and romance of the tropics. Graycliff’s historic significance is recognized with a listing in the National Register of Historic Places.

Graycliff’s Wine Cellar

Graycliff’s Wine Cellar is another jewel in its crown. With an inventory of over 250,000 bottles from more than 5000 winemakers across 20 countries, it is a haven for wine enthusiasts. The cellar has been the proud recipient of the Wine Spectator Grand Award since 1988 and has held three stars from the World of Fine Wines since 2015. The collection ranges from popular contemporary vintages to some of the rarest in the world, including an 1865 Château Lafite and a 1727 Rudesheimer Apostelwein, hailed as one of the oldest and most expensive bottles globally.

Graycliff Cigar Company

The Graycliff Cigar Company, an endeavor of the Garzaroli family, was born out of Enrico Garzaroli’s deep love for cigars. He founded the company in 1997, with a single roller set up in the foyer of the Graycliff Restaurant. It has now grown into an award-winning boutique enterprise with 16 master rollers skilled in the art of cigar rolling. The company produces five brands of cigars: Graycliff, G2, Bahiba, Cabinet Selection by Graycliff, and the newly introduced B-Cuz by Graycliff. Visitors can witness the artistry of cigar making firsthand, partake in a cigar-rolling lesson, or indulge in a cigar and rum pairing session guided by experts.

Graycliff Chocolatier

The Graycliff Chocolatier adds another layer of decadence to the Graycliff experience. Whether you want to learn how to craft gourmet chocolates under a master chocolatier’s watchful eye or simply wish to savor the exquisite chocolates and truffles, this is the place where every chocoholic’s dream comes to life. The boutique retails these gastronomic delights, and they can also be found at selected retailers across the Bahamas.

In short, the Graycliff Hotel is not merely a hotel. It’s a living piece of history, a gastronomic adventure, a wine and cigar lover’s paradise, and a haven for those who value the finer things in life.
