Shannas Cove Resort


Dear friends and guests,

We do everything for the safety of our guests and our employees but do not forget our hospitality and cordiality, as we believe that you can spend a safe and good time with us due to our exposed location.

Thanks to the generosity of our areas, we are able to provide you with plenty of space. The vastness of Shanna Bay and beaches just around the corner do the rest that there are many possibilities for relaxing holidays. 

Given the variety of these measures, our extensive cleaning protocols as well as the implemented Clean & Pristine health and safety program by the Bahamian government, which we implement with full responsibility, we also need personal responsibility and common sense that we can get through this together.

The required minimum distance of 6 feet can be maintained everywhere and we will be happy to provide you with detailed information about more measures.
