COURTYARD NASSAU DOWNTOWN/JUNKANOO BEACH
DST is proud to partner with the Courtyard Nassau Hotel, part of the Marriott group, to provide our guests with a comfortable, relaxing stay. Our guests will enjoy delicious, mouth-watering halal cuisine, access to a prayer room, as well as a private pool for our sisters. Additionally, the hotel is conveniently located across the street from Junkanoo Beach.
Please note that the rooms booked for our group are all standard view, if you wish to upgrade to a sea view room, please do speak to one of our agents.
The Bahamas are known for beautiful beaches, with sugar-like sand and turquoise-blue clear waters. Simply imagining it makes you feel relaxed – imagine how great it would feel being there, soaking in the sun and sipping a cool tropical mocktail.
The country is an archipelago (fancy word for group of islands) and there are around 700 of them with only around 30 that are inhabited, making it a great place to go island-hopping. Harbour Island is known to have one of the world’s best pink sand beaches – the light pink sand is said to get its hue from thousands of broken coral pieces and shells. (island-hopping/Harbour Island not included)
Our hotel is very conveniently located across the street from Junkanoo Beach, however you are encouraged to roam and discover all the beautiful and hidden beaches this island has to offer.
Swim with the dolphins or marvel at them as they dive in and out of the water performing tricks or blowing kisses. If you fancy some underwater exploration with an uninterrupted view and the opportunity to swim with fish, you can take advantage of snorkeling and scuba diving facilities, all of which are approved and monitored by the Bahamas Diving Association to ensure you are safe and secure when exploring Bahamian waters. Bright turquoise, clear waters coupled with shipwrecks, reefs and a varied marine life make The Bahamas one of the world’s favorite destinations for underwater activities.
For the thrill-seekers, you can a variety of options from parasailing and jet-skiing or kayaking and banana boating. Alternatively, maybe just hop on a boat to explore a nearby island (you have 700 to choose from). Our friends at Marriot are committed to help you make the best out of your vacation. Your next adventure awaits!
HISTORIC DOWNTOWN NASSUA
San Salvador Island is widely believed to be the first land sighted and visited by Christopher Columbus during his expedition to the ‘New World’. We will take a historical walk through downtown Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas, with a local tour guide and learn about the history of The Bahamas. From piracy and slavery to the modern-day Nassau – you will learn all about the rich history of the city and country (included in the package).
It is also an opportunity to shop until you drop from the many local outlets selling handicrafts and departments stores retailing branded items.
2018 has been a roller coaster year with many fulfilling moments of joy as well as somber times to introspect. Take this opportunity away from the hustle and bustle to reflect on the many blessings that Allah SWT has bestowed upon us and ponder inquisitively about our goals and plans for the future. The tranquil environment allows you to truly relax and figure out what is important in life.
Shaykh XXXXX will be joining us on the trip and deliver short reminders helping us to spiritually rejuvenate and rekindle our connection with Allah and direct our life towards happiness and fulfillment.
