The Landing

Casual, minimalist, intimate.

Bay Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas


At a Glance

This intimate, 12-room guesthouse feels like staying at a friend’s upscale house along with other guests.

Indagare Loves

  • The beautiful dining room
  • India Hicks’ still classic island-chic interiors
  • The intimate, personal setting


Owned by Australian Toby Tyler and his gorgeous Bahamian wife, Tracy Barry, the hotel—with its enormous dark wood bar, hardwood floors and ceiling fans—evokes Rick’s Café Casablanca. But the place may seem familiar for another reason—it’s been featured in lots of magazine spreads. Though India Hicks (the British aristocrat and former Ralph Lauren model) is no longer a minority owner, the Landings retains the Hicks (and Ralph Lauren) influence: expect black-and-white family portraits and well-chosen books scattered about to give a lived-in feeling. Seven guest rooms overlooking the harbor and garden feature huge four-poster beds with mosquito netting and starched white linens. A pool was carved into the hill out back, and there’s a wine and liquor boutique, offering excellent wines under the house label. The restaurant has long been one of the island’s best, with tables in the house and in the garden.

Who Should Stay

Those who love the homey intimacy of guesthouse living and who don’t mind being a distance from the beach. The Landing is an informal gathering place, so guests who enjoy that atmosphere will be most comfortable.
