A towering and expansive resort hotel is probably the last place you’d expect to encounter caring local staff eager to show you the authentic side of their home island community, but that’s exactly what the folks at the Grand Lucayan on Grand Bahama Island say you can expect here.
Their new series of YouTube videos features casual interviews with various resort staff highlighting not only what they do on-property, but also where they recommend Grand Lucayan guests go to experience the real Grand Bahama Island well away from the resort.
My favorite of these great videos stars Chef Kirkland Russell, the man behind all the great eats at the Grand Lucayan for the past 13 years. Chef Russell takes us to The Fruit Market, but not just for the fresh produce he uses in his own cooking. What he’s really keen on having us experience there is Bojangles Seafood Haven, a humble local eatery that to his mind serves some of the best seafood around…
It’s been about four years since I had the pleasure of visiting Grand Bahama Island, but Chef Russell has me hungry to get back soon for a taste of the unique conch salad at Bojangles. If your appetite for a Grand Bahama escape has been similarly whetted, then check out Grand Lucayan’s website for reservations today!
