Big Bamboo

The name "Big Bamboo" was inspired by the song performed by iconic Bahamian entertainer, the late Mr. Ronnie Butler.  He was a close friend of the property owners, who planted a "Big Bamboo Garden" in his honor beside the Chubby Mermaid Sky Lounge, as a shaded space for relaxation. 

The philosophy behind the development of Big Bamboo is based on connecting individuals with surrounding nature, creating alluring memories that can only be experienced on a tropical out-island.

As a gated property on an "off the grid" tropical island, Big Bamboo offers the privacy, separateness, conveniences, and lifestyle of a modern homestead, with the sophistication of a high quality small resort for sustainable island living. 

Our two storied private boutique villa, nestled on several tropical acres of aquamarine waterfront, was intentionally designed and developed to be a fun-filled retreat, detached from the chaotic world outside. 


Andros Island

Big Bamboo is located on scenic Fresh Creek, Andros, the largest of the 700 Islands of The Bahamas.  The island is blessed with an abundance of lush pine and coppice forests, countless blue holes, freshwater lakes, wetlands, miles of sandy beaches, endless fishing flats and the world's third longest fringe of barrier reef.  


This unique blend of ecosystems has produced an extraordinary array of  marine life, flora, fauna and birds.  These natural wonders combined with the culture and leisurely lifestyle of the Androsian people, makes Andros the special destination that it is.
