Tiamo does not have an access road—guests can arrive by either boat or seaplane. Those who plan to travel by boat must fly via Nassau or Fort Lauderdale to Mangrove Cay domestic or Congo Town international airport on Andros Island, where you’ll be picked up by lodge staff and driven to the nearby Driggs Hill town docks. From here, it is a 10-minute boat trip to the lodge. Boat transfers are included in the cost of your stay.
Direct seaplane transfers originate from either Nassau or Miami, with guests disembarking on the beach in front of the lodge. Seaplane transfers are not included in the cost of stay and should be booked independently. For more information on air carriers, please contact our reservations specialists.
Passports are required for travel to the Bahamas, and guests will need to go through customs upon arrival in Nassau or Andros Island, depending on their travel plans.
In order to partake in self-guided exploration beyond the borders of the property, guests must travel via the lodge boat to their desired Andros destination. Transfers are free of charge if the destination and timing align with the resort’s established boat schedule, and custom trips are available for an additional fee. Boat transfers are not available before sunrise or after sunset.
Individual accommodations are not outfitted with phone lines. While guests are welcome to use the main resort line, calls are costly. Purchasing a Bahamas SIM card for your cell phone prior to arrival is the recommended alternative. There is Wi-fi available throughout the property.
Tap water is not potable at Tiamo. All guests will be provided with filtered water throughout their stay.
In the case of emergency, guests are transported by boat to a clinic on Mangrove Key—a five-minute boat ride from Tiamo. The nearest hospital is in Nassau, which is a short helicopter ride from the clinic in Mangrove Key. Please note that lodge accommodations are not handicap-accessible.
The fall, winter, and spring seasons see pleasant temperatures, with highs ranging between 70 and 75° Fahrenheit. Summers are slightly warmer, with daytime temperatures reaching the low to mid 80s.

Pack what you would take on a beach vacation, including swimwear, suntan lotion, water shoes, and protective sunglasses and hats, as well as active wear for exploring the island’s inland terrain. Dinners at the lodge are casual, and jackets are not required.
Children of all ages are welcome at Tiamo and children under 3 years old stay complimentary. Cribs are available upon request, and most rooms can be outfitted with extra beds or sofa sleepers. Babysitting services are available for an additional charge.
