Nandana Residence – The Grand Bahamas
The client wanted a private resort inspired by the dramatic elegance of the Amanpuri resort in Phuket, Thailand, and named the project Nandana, a Sanskrit word meaning “paradise”.
Within Old Bahama Bay Resort in the Grand Bahamas stands a striking Thai-style mansion, Nandana. This private oceanfront estate combines residential living with the amenities and services of luxury resort lifestyles.
Organized around a 120-foot long architectural pool, the main gathering area and five-bedroom suites have a village-like presence in both scale and structure. Two 1,000-square-foot master suites anchor the compound at each end.
Architectural detailing offers a continuation of Thai-style design from exterior to interior, contributing to the desired exotic atmosphere. The property looks over the ocean and a protected sandy beach, and to the rear of the property is a deep-water canal with private docking for yachts.
Completed in 2006 in association with Hart Howerton, Mark de Reus was design principal during the conceptual design with Dan Whitney completing design development and the architectural work to the point of construction.
This home was featured in the Ultimate Homes Special Issue of Robb Report as a ‘Haute Hideaway in the Bahamas’ in May 2010 and showcased in 50 different publications.
