Cocodimama is situated at the center of picture-perfect Alabaster Bay’s spectacular beach, recently featured on the cover of Conde Nast Travler. Alabaster Beach stretches for a mile along the crystal clear azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. The water on this beach is famously calm, typically as calm as a lake. The island is so narrow at this point that guests can stroll to the Atlantic Ocean to enjoy the splendor of miles of uninterrupted pink sand beach as they watch the Atlantic’s blue-green waters roll ashore over nearby reefs. The combination of the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, rolling green hills, and two extraordinary beaches presents our resort guests with a one of kind experience.
The resort’s colonial Main House (the white and blue building in the photos) is the perfect gathering spot for large groups. This very large and comfortable beachfront interior features a spacious lounge area with sofas, a very large dining room, commercial kitchen, full bar and bar area with flat screen TV, and men’s and women’s rest rooms. Outside the dining room, the spacious beachfront deck is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a meal or an evening cocktail and our legendary sunsets. The yellow, green, and red buildings in the photos each contain 4 hotel rooms. Each room has a full en-suite bathroom. All of our spacious rooms are direct beachfront, steps from the sand, and feature unobstructed beach, ocean, and sunset views.
Cocodimama is rented out to just one group at a time. You will have the entire resort and its pink-sand beach to yourself. The number of rooms provided will depend on the size of your group. Daily housekeeping is included. For groups of 25 or larger, we will also include the two-bedroom, two-bath manager's suite, which brings the total number of bedrooms to 14.
Cocodimama has 3 double rooms (each with two double beds) and 3 king/single rooms which contain both a king bed and a single bed, and 6 king rooms, each with a king bed. The manager's suite has one king bed suite and one queen bed suite.
Cocodimama is located just six miles (less than a 10-minute drive) from Governors Harbour, the main town on the island. Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. . Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.
Cocodimama is just two miles from the boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, which has an excellent beachfront restaurant and infinity pool, with swim up cocktail bar and poolside service all day long. Other restaurants in the area include Tippy’s (international and fusion) and The Rainbow Inn (famous for its steaks). The above all have live music one or more nights a week, so there is live entertainment somewhere nearby almost every night. The Governors Harbour area also has numerous little takeouts and restaurants offering local cuisine, including Da Perk (coffee and sandwich shop), The Buccaneer (salads, burgers, wraps), Mate and Jenny’s (pizza and Bahamian) and the Sunset Inn (local cuisine).
Eleuthera is most famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches. The island, home to just 8000 residents, is completely safe any time of the day or night. Enjoy the rare experience of picking up hitch-hikers and leaving your keys in the car wherever you go. The snorkeling, diving, and fishing on the island are world class. Boating, surfing, and other water sports are also popular. You can rent power boats, sailboats, sea kayaks, bikes. You can have a charter captain take you out for excursions of various types.
