Plus-size tourism in the heart of the Bahamas

Plus-size resort

Have you ever experienced embarrassment when taking off your clothes at a pool? Or maybe you felt bad as people laughed because you couldn’t fit in a lounge chair. Don’t worry, The Resort is the answer to all your  plus-size prayers.

Personalized stay for plus-size clients


Located in the island of Eleuthera – The Bahamas, this holiday resort offers certain commodities a plus-size person would need and moreover, would want to have. The whole holiday inn has been customized to fit plus-size clients: the doorways are wider, beds are reinforced with 2-inch steel bars and lounges are a metre-wide.

However, the resort is not only comforting their clients in the idea of accepting their body. An activity program includes group therapy and exercises to force clients to re-evaluate their body.  The hotel can welcome up to 28 people either in groups or separately. Privacy is also an important point as they ensure a 5 mile long private beach.

To enjoy a 6 night stay at The Resort, you may consider saving some money. A week stay costs around $16,400. This price includes food (Caribbean and American food) and the connection between the airport and the resort.

In a country where obesity is a main problem, the resort has been accused of normalising the condition. However, Mr King, the owner of the property denied those allegations. He instead guaranteed the place’s purpose is to bring peace and serenity to the clients.

Mr King also reminds that the place is open for average-size travellers. As people may reserve the place for groups, it can happen that overweight people are less numerous. Developing its notoriety, The Resort accumulated a 65% occupancy rate which is already a great number.

We should maybe expect another resort to open near the Cat Island, even though the owner states his will is not to build and run many complexes.
