British Colonial Hilton, Nassau, Bahamas
Both Thunderball and Never Say Never Again (a remake of Thunderball), starring Sean Connery as Bond, were shot at the swank, canary yellow, British Colonial Hilton Nassau hotel that is conveniently nestled in downtown Nassau, Bahamas.
Upon arrival, Bond travelers are greeted with a martini, shaken not stirred. They can stay in a deluxe room (three nights, two people, $960) or be whisked away to the palatial one-bedroom, 007 suite (three nights, $1290). The suite pays homage to 007 in decor, and is filled with memorabilia: signature bathrobes, posters, books, soundtrack CDs, and a great selection of Bond movie videos, like Goldfinger. Unlike the British double agent, guests can enjoy uninterrupted games of golf and tennis nearby and indulge in the luxurious Azure Spa & Beauty Salon, which offers intimate massages for couples, body wraps, and other luxurious treatments. Address: One Bay Street Nassau, Bahamas N-7148.
