Imagine stepping outside of a luxurious oceanfront home on a secluded Bahamian beach as you make your way to the marina to board your fully-staffed yacht for a day of sailing through the islands. At Ki’ama Bahamas, this lifestyle is possible, as it is a new type of resort club that offers fractional ownership of luxury residences with access to private yachts. Fractional ownership, unlike a timeshare, is deeded real estate that can be sold, placed in a trust, gifted, or inherited. Residences can also be purchased outright by a single owner.

The resort includes 16 four-bedroom residences with 5,900 sq. ft. of living space and eight six-bedroom estate homes available for shared, or single, ownership. Each home also includes the use of a solar-powered and crewed yacht, as well as rental speed boats, a beach club, spa, restaurant, and six private white sand beaches. The resort is located on 36 acres of Elizabeth Island, which is just a quick water taxi ride from George Town, Exuma. Club Ki’ama owners can stay in a residence or on a yacht during their vacation—or mix it up to experience both.
