About the property

5 Room Boutique Hotel with Breathtaking Views of Ocean, remodeled in 2016

La Bougainvillea is a 5-room oceanfront boutique hotel on 27 acres of impeccably landscaped grounds. The hotel opens out into a stunning infinity edge pool, bar and restaurant overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic. Walk out to the expansive back porch and lounge while relaxing in this pristine paradise!

A complete transformation of this hotel was just completed in November of 2016. Every room was completely remodeled with coral tiles, new fixtures, window treatments, sinks, toilets and beds; no expense was spared!

Our newest addition is the La Bougainvillea restaurant and bar, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner and the finest of wines and spirits and specialty cocktails. We have also transformed our interior to allow for indoor dining with unfettered views of the Atlantic. And outdoors, right alongside the pool is the restaurant, bar & grill with intricately decked-cabanas for those wishing to enjoy the warm sunshine, balmy breezes or a romantic candle-lit evening dining under the stars.

Did we mention that our setting and ambiance is ideal for hosting weddings? No longer do you need to bring an arch or trellis since ideally-centered between the pool and Atlantic pink-sand beach backdrop, we have crafted and erected permanent pavilion. Now just let us help you decorate!

La Bougainvillea has five rooms - three oceanfront rooms with king beds and two garden-view rooms, 1 with a king bed and 1 with two queen beds. Rates range from $275 -$325 per night per room. All oceanfront rooms have tri-fold doors which provide an expansive open feel with fantastic ocean views.

Please note that the rate quoted by Homeaway/VRBO for this ad is $325 per night for the first 2 guests and $75/night for each additional guest. That rate is only correct for one room. If you need multiple rooms, Homeaway/VRBO will not quote the correct rate, but contact us and we can quote it for you manually. Please also note that the restaurant and bar remain open the public even if you rent all 5 rooms in the hotel.

The hotel sits on 1200 feet of pristine private pink-sand beach. Awake to incredibly brilliant sunrises and fall asleep to the relaxing sounds of the waves all while looking out at the crystal blue Atlantic Ocean. Surround yourself in first class comfort. Come relax in the pool or stroll down to take a dip in the ocean on our wide pink sand beach. Snorkeling is steps off the beach where coral reefs abound! Enjoy an afternoon of watching tropical fish play on the reefs, rest on the spacious patio overlooking the beach, or unwind in the hammock.

Other amenities include infinity pool, AC, high-speed internet, ceiling fans, safe, beach chairs, outdoor showers, and private pink sand beach.

Seven Palms is our sister property located on the 25 acres adjoining La Bougainvillea. Seven Palms has 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and can be rented as a private villa. For your additional two guests, who can’t be accommodated in the villa or would like a little more privacy, there is also now the Seven Palms one bedroom cottage. Seven Palms guests share the pool at La Bougainvillea. The Seven Palms VRBO listing number is 782271.

The La Bougainvillea hotel comes with daily housekeeping. Car rental is recommended and can be reserved in advance. Spa services, office needs, tours, fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle-board guide and lessons can be provided. And for groups booking the entire hotel for private events, entertainers and musicians or other types of services can also be arranged upon request. All of these amenities are subject to additional costs and availability.

La Bougainvillea is located on the Banks Road of Governors Harbour, the premier location on Eleuthera. The town of Governors Harbour (the main town on the island) is less five minutes away by car. Visit the bay side for fresh fish and lobster every afternoon while chatting up with the local fisherman at the town dock. Governors Harbour features grocery stores, gas stations, two banks and ATM's, restaurants, liquor stores, a medical clinic, library, bakery, and gift shops. Dotted along the road are historic homes dating back to 1897. Friday nights in Governors Harbour boast "The Fish Fry", a street/beach party brings together tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street. This should not be missed!

Eleuthera is ranked and reviewed as one of the "25 Best Beaches in the World" by Forbes Traveler and awarded the "Best Secret Island on Earth" by Travel and Leisure. Restaurants such as Tippy's and Unique's are all within a 4-mile radius. The Leon Levy Preserve is just minutes away. The island is 110 miles long and has approximately 80 miles of undeveloped beaches and a population of nearly 8,000 full time residents. You are safe walking anywhere and can enjoy talking with friendly locals on anything from life on the island to the favorite local fish fry. Dotted along Eleuthera's only main road are picturesque settlements, each with their own charm. Visit the world-famous Ocean Hole, explore cave systems, historic churches and homes. Shocking clear turquoise and blue water abound on both sides of the coastline. With the Atlantic's deep blue and blue-green hues on the north side to the light blues on the Caribbean side you will never be short of phenomenal places to take that perfect vacation picture! Of course, diving, snorkeling, swimming, sport fishing, bone fishing, spear fishing, boating, and caving are just the beginning of a great island adventure. We have the guides ready to take you or can simply point out the way for your vacation to begin with us!

Please note that the quote you will get from this ad is for ONE hotel room.

If you want a quote for more than one room, please contact us by phone or email. All 5 rooms can be rented for $1200 per night plus tax. Rates are higher during the Christmas/New Years holiday.

About Kristin Tornow and Pam Fontes

I fell in love with Eleuthera the very first time I drove through the Island. I was looking for a place that was not commercialized. A place that can bring you back to a simpler time. I was not sure such a placed still existed. Well, fortunately there is! I hope you will enjoy La Bougainvillea Resort.

Kristin Tornow and Pam Fontes purchased this hotel in 2006

Couldn't have asked for a better stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to Eleuthera and I have to say it surpassed all of our expectations. Not only was the house beautiful but the staff was so kind and welcoming. Sharon was very helpful in guiding us, leading up to the trip as well as once we got there. Horatio is a born and raised Bahamian from Eleuthera who knows all about the locals and all the go too spots. Beth may be one of the sweetest house keepers there is who is also very helpful and did everything to keep us comfortable. The pictures do not do the property or the beach justice. We will definitely be coming back here to true paradise!!!

The pictures of La Bougainvillea do not do it justice. Amazing home with ample space for large groups. The location is perfect, with private beach and beautiful grounds. We snorkeled right off the shore and enjoyed the beautiful pink sands and turquoise water. We enjoyed a day trip to Spanish Wells but spent the rest of the trip at the property or in nearby Governors Harbour. We will definitely return someday!

Wonderful beach

  • 4 of 5

Our group of six just returned from this villa. We had a nice time and enjoyed the island. The listing states 30 acres but I believe this is shared with the house next door 7 palms which you can see from the back patio. Pluses, very private beach with palapa providing shade, turquoise water and white sugar sandy beach very few beach goers so very quiet and private. 15 minutes from governors harbor and 5 minutes from tippys and the back porch. A little older feeling. Our main issues were the floor plan. All three bedrooms were outside the living room/dining room. Even more awkward was the kitchen was separate from dining room, a separate building so you had to open and close, due to mosquitoes, two doors coming and going to dining room, hard with plates in your hand. Dining is very expensive and something as Common as a fish sandwich can cost $20 or more at the local restaurants. We had planned on cooking. The kitchen was poor. Oven was worthless as the temperature was not accurate,but worse were the preponderance of flys, hundreds maybe thousands when food was being prepared. Our harbor island house we stayed in did not have this problem. We gave up and ate out every lunch and dinner. Lots of sand flys, mosquito bites etc , but that's the tropics. Great place to get away with gorgeous beach but don't think about cooking real meals

Ps fly all the way from Malibu ca for pristine beach and privacy and on the morning of our third day a wedding planner walks through the villa, unannounced, to the back patio were we were having coffee. She wanted to meet clients and tour the property, and we had people still sleeping ! After agreeing to come back after we leave the next day , I go for a run on the beach. When I get back she and two people are wondering around the back yard and continue to do so for 20 minutes. My kids and wife say the future groom stormed into the back yard , enraged we wouldn't give them access to our leased villa. All In , the wedding planner sat in our living room For 20 minutes on her phone, supposedly cancelling meeting, then walked around for another 20 minutes. If you value and are willing to pay for privacy like us, you should address this with management prior to renting.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to Eleuthera was more perfect than we could have ever imagined. Everything made it perfect, from the beautiful house and yard, secluded beach, and the gracious housekeeper and gardener. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed the pool. My husband and I enjoyed scuba diving right from the beach, plenty to see. We had our food pre-purchased thanks to Shorline Properties LTD., which made it nice. The cute town is close enough for going out to eat or picking up extra groceries. We loved dinner at 1648, very good food. It was perfect, we highly recommend La Bougainvillea.

Great week at La Bougainvillea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two young children, and myself, just returned from 8 nights at La Bougainvillea. It's a great property on a quiet beach, with a huge backyard. The weather was a bit cooler than average while we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the pool, but it's nice and very close to the house. We had a wonderful concierge, Shorlette Williams, helping us during our entire trip. She had the house stocked with everything we had asked for when we arrived, and she arranged for two wonderful babysitters for our little ones. The only real drawback to the house is that you have to go outside to access each different portion of the house. This wouldn't have been much of an issue at all, but the weather was cool in the mornings especially, so it took a little adjusting. Just a quirky design, not really a negative. We were also able to tour their sister property next door, 7 Palms, it's a beautiful home...a bit more modern than Bougainvillea, and twice as many bedrooms. All in all, a fantastic, centrally located villa that's well taken care of. If you've never been to Eleuthera, this is a great location to check out, as it's easy to head north or south on any given day, and see different parts of the island. Thanks for a great week!
