ritz-carlton's abaco club

winding bay, abaco, bahamas


The Abaco Club on Winding Bay is situated on a 550-acre peninsula with more than two miles of powder soft, white sand beach, natural dunes and an elevated headland, on the east coast of the island of Abaco in the Bahamas.  The Abaco Club opened in December 2004 with a world class Scottish style "tropical links" championship golf course, bone and deep-sea fishing, scuba diving and other water sports, a European-style spa, horse-riding, tennis, and a host of other leisure activities.

In addition to developing the master plan of this Ritz-Carlton property, our commissions include a 59,456 sf Great House on the upper ridge with views overlooking both the Atlantic and Winding Bay.  This landmark building consists of 10 residences, a 1215 sf pool, spa, sauna and fitness room.  A 26,698 sf Golf Clubhouse anchors the 14th hole on the golf course and includes a golf shop, bar and lounge and private dining.  The Ritz-Carlton Beach Club includes 20 attached cottages, and two larger beach houses with 4 units each.  Sprinkled along the lower and upper ridge are 36 Caribbean Vernacular style cottages ranging from 2-5 bedrooms and 2200-3700 sf.  We've also designed a variety of pedestrian and recreationalstructures providing key civic amenities.
