My husband and I just returned from a trip with our friends to Kahari and we are already thinking of when we can go back. Everything about our trip was magical. The island is incredible and Kahari is the perfect setting to relax and take it all in. From the private bungalows to the outdoor showers, the lovely restaurant, the exquisite beaches, the laid back vibe and attentive service, it was an unbelievable trip. Make sure to go to the sandbar, swim with the sea turtles and look for starfish!

Hotel's Favourite
We just returned from 4 days at Kahari resort before our kids go back to school and we had a blast. Our kids are 8 and under (3) and they absolutely loved it. From being received by Neka at Peace and Plenty to take the boat over, to getting our ocean view room early (so worth it) and the help from her and the rest of the staff. I requested a boat rental and they quickly set me up with Exuma boat rentals at no additional cost, the boat was there the next day. We had a wonderful time getting around the area by boat. The restaurant was excellent (breakfast burritos were great!), and the location is close to chat and chill, a cave to snorkel or scuba dive, some beautiful trails and many more things. The stunning beach views and the beach itself was shallow and great for our 3 year old and the snorkeling in the area was great. Kids complained that they had to leave and so did we. It is breathtaking, relaxing and classy. Don’t think twice about staying on stocking island, the daily boat to Georgetown goes right into Kahari so it’s easy to get on and off if you want to spend time on the big island, we moved around on the boat rental but explored the island for two days and had fun. Chat and Chill is walking or kayaking distance. Rooms were clean, outside private shower was great, kids loved the loft, and the food was excellent. The service was great and Lemon and Neka made sure we had everything we needed. People on exuma are extremely nice so we enjoyed that. The massage was great as well. Highly recommend, we will be back.

The Kahari Resort was the perfect solution for a great relaxing getaway. The excursion to the largest sandbar for a fabulous picnic and afternoon hangout and happy hour after visiting the Starfish beach and swimming with the sea turtles. The hotel rooms are your own bungalow on the beach with the most beautiful water views. The paddle boards and kayaks were great to get a little sweat-on as well as the 4 mile island hike. And the coral reef right on our beach had incredible fish and unbelievable colors. The dinners were top notch and spaced for great cocktails and socializing. This is truly a one of a kind resort!

It was the perfect place for a friend’s reunion. This boutique resort is intimate and the bungalows are well appointed and offer beautiful views of the water and nature. There are kayaks and paddle boards for the guests use and the crystal clear water in ideal for seeing marine life. The staff is friendly and efficient. The restaurant offers a unique menu every evening and it was delicious with excellent presentation. We were able to charter a private boat to swim with the turtles, picnic on a sand bar and snorkel on a reef. An excellent vacation and escape with friends. Completely relaxing and well worth the money.

We stayed for 5 nights in this beautiful resort and enjoyed every moment. The staff was wonderful and the amenities are great. You can enjoy the quiet and. exclusiveness of the resort and still be close to the mainland for a variety of activities. It is a beautiful island with amazing water views, nature trails, kayaks and paddle boards.

Ron G’s review was pretty spot on. Waiting for reservation confirmation was indeed nerve racking but they eventually responded. Island time. Keep that in mind with anything on Exuma. I’ve seen several mentions of the resort fee being a surprise. I’m pretty sure it was mentioned when booking because I was not surprised. We visited Kahari for 7 nights in July. We booked a room on the lagoon which I was pleasantly surprised with. I really enjoyed the lagoon. We stayed in the first villa off the dock across from the restaurant. Noise is not an issue. Views are great. And it’s not a long walk to the other side. Room was not very big, but very nice and kept clean. We spent very little time in the room. The staff were all very very nice. Enjoyed the PnP beach Club although as some mentioned sometime the music is way too loud. Kahari Beach palapas are nice and I liked the Trust Bar, but some days it would be a while before it was unlocked and stocked. Do yourself a favor and hit the liquor store for any alcohol you might want. Everything is very expensive and although we did buy drinks from the various places on the island it was good to offset some of that cost. The restaurant was pretty good although a few times they were out of ingredients for items on the menu. Understandable. It was also very expensive. Keep that in mind. We ate there every night…obviously we could have gone to GTown for dinner we just chose not to. We did not use any spa services. One thing not to miss is to take the kayaks provided on the lagoon side and paddle towards the lagoon outlet till you see a trail on the right (before snappy turtle). Beach/Tie up there and take the short trail over to the Atlantic. You’ll most likely have the entire beach to yourself. You can also walk south on Kahari beach and most likely find it deserted. I won’t mention any activities not related to Kahari but one. I highly suggest renting a boat from Exuma Boat rentals if you are up for it. We had one for two days and wanted it for a 3rd but none were available so book ahead of time. We did not. We got an Xpress H20 and I’m glad we didn’t have a smaller boat because the harbor can be rough at times. They will deliver the boat and let you keep it on the Kahari dock. Despite what the website says we did not have a radio but cell service was available. We got zero instruction so keep that in mind, if you haven’t piloted a boat in a while, be sure to watch a few YouTube videos ahead of time. I was admittedly very nervous to start. Make sure you have an idea of the tides times. Download Navionics app before you leave home. Don’t miss Man-O-War Cay sandbar. Limit your alcohol consumption and pay attention to everything. It’s a lot of fun. This was a much needed trip for our marriage. We most likely will return…

My family and I recently stayed at Kahari for a week. The property is located on Stocking Island which is great because it’s much quieter than the mainland in George Town. You will need to take a water taxi from the Peace and Plenty over to Stocking. The water taxis were always on time, with friendly captains. Once on the property, the staff is very welcoming and always willing to assist the guests. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa over looking the marina. The rooms were great and fit my family’s needs. The villa had a full kitchen which was great. We traveled with our Yeti with frozen meat from Wild Fork and were able to cook a few days. The market is short walk from Peace and Plenty. Over at the beach club bar, Alvin was great and always attentive despite the bar being full on the weekend. Food was great at the beach club as well. Kahari has cabanas for guests only on the Kahari side as well as on the beach club. As far as for Beacon, I was somewhat disappointed. Their menu changes daily which is great. But I feel that the $$$ are extremely high even for island standards. $55 for shrimp pad Thai is ridiculous. I do have to say that my grouper curry was very good. Overall we had a good experience on the property and recommend staying here if you want to get away.

We were in Elizabeth Harbor enjoying a great day in the Exumas. It was lunch time and we wanted to try something we hadn't had before. Kahari was a great choice. The fish tacos, quesadillas, and a burger were all very good. Drinks were done well and Nicole provided great, attentive service in a beautiful environment. Definitely a stop we will repeat on our next visit.

The resort and rooms are awesome. Beach and island are beautiful. We took long walks on the beach everyday and seldom saw anyone else. The island also has some nice trails for hiking. Restaurant was very good but over priced. Making reservations was painful and took many days to confirm. Also resort needs to inform you about the "resort fees" when reservations are made instead of during check in. Concierge service was also lacking timely responses. I asked for a rental car for one day and had to ask several times and never got it. Also a few days DJ at Beach Club was very loud and could be heard on Kahari's beach. What happened to peaceful beach vacation? If the resort can be more responsive with the concierge service and when making reservations the resort would be 5 stars. Also lowering the prices in restaurant would help.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We appreciate this very much as we are always trying to improve our services. Unfortunately we cannot control the Beach Club as this is actually an entirely different entity, however we will let them know and see if we can compromise on the sound levels. Their DJ is only there on Sunday afternoons from 1PM - 4:30PM. IN addition we will share this with the Concierge as well. Again thank you for your feedback.

Went with daughter for long week trip. Bungalows beautiful and clean. WI-FI works great we watched movies on Netflix at night with IPad. Love private outdoor showers. Beacon restaurant is very good but $$$. Peace and plenty sister property has a beach bar and grill that is yummy or walk in water around rocks and eat at Chat and Chill. Stop and get groceries at market for extra snacks the hotel at ferry will watch your luggage. We had hotel arrange taxi to and from. 15 minutes /5 minute ferry. Have a small reef close to shore for snorkeling. It’s like a movie it so pretty. Beach breathtaking. Found some shells… love the protected cove to float all day. Water is clear. Staff is friendly and helpful. Love Nicole, Lamon, Casandra and many more. No complaints. Great little hideaway will return.
