Wax Cay



Description


Welcome to Wax Cay, an exceptionally beautiful private island off the coast of the Bahamas.

This wonderful destination will be a vacation paradise for you and your guests. Enjoy the pleasure of experiencing this exquisite island.

Wax Cay is located in the most sought-after area of Exuma, just 45 miles Southeast of Nassau and across from Normans Cay which is home to a 4,700-foot runway. Head south into the adjacent Exuma Land and Sea Park, featuring a protected natural environment of coral reefs, mangrove creeks, stunning beaches, and sandbanks.

Wax Cays’ buildings consist of accommodation villas, 3 staff buildings, the dining building including a bar and a commercial kitchen, an open-air pavilion, a games pavilion with billiard table, games tables, sitting areas with satellite TV and Internet access, laundry, harbour embankment, hand-cut native stone walkways and sea walls, docks with power and water and storage.

Facilities include a marina, a power generating facility, water supply and reverse osmosis equipment. All you could possibly need, and more is provided for you and your guests. You won’t have to lift a finger while on vacation in Wax Cay, as the staff will cater to all you require.

Opportunities for activity on and around Wax Cay are plentiful. A hiking trail winds along the full length of the mile-long island, skirting secluded beaches offering exercise for those that wish to enjoy it and opportunities to explore.

The social heart of the Island is the centrally located bar and restaurant, offering a warm and inviting space, suitable for hosting a large gathering of family and friends, or a quiet meal for two. Enjoy food, drinks, and beautiful, everlasting views of the island. Surrounded by wooden decks with teak furniture, the location is a perfect place to entertain and enjoy the island’s magnificent sunsets.

A blend of the exotic and comfortable, the villas on Wax Cay are simply one of a kind and will be perfect for each individual guest. As members of your party will have their own villa, it allows for guests to enjoy privacy while also being on a family vacation.

The structures have been built using hand-carved antique Vietnamese building frames. These were disassembled in Vietnam shipped to Wax Cay and re-assembled. The rustic elegance and chic style of these buildings add to the mystique of being on the Cay.

The island boasts countless soft sand beaches, hilltop lookouts’ beautiful nature trails and lush vegetation. With two boat harbours/marinas, Wax Cay boasts deep-water access and frontage on both the Exuma Sound side and the calm, warm, shallow bank side.

Exceptional Villas’ wonderful and dedicated concierge service will be on hand from the minute you have booked your luxury vacation to assist with all details small and large to ensure an exceptional trip to Wax Cay. Reservations, excursions, and activities can all be taken care of by the concierge team to ensure all details of your vacation are managed seamlessly.
