Hailed as "a work of art" by Travel Weekly, Compass Point is a collection of octagonal huts and cottages brightly painted in kids' crayon-box colors: yellow, lavender, teal, blue, tangerine and pink and is adjacent to famous Love Beach. Compass Point's creative desinger Barbara Hulanicki mirrored the Bahamas annual Junkanoo parade using bright and cheerful colors on the buildings exteriors. Additional local color includes artistic use of conch shells as decoration. In contrast to the exteriors, the handcrafted interiors of each unit feature natural woods with colorful batik fabrics. Units carry such whimsical names as Lookout and Rock Lobster. The hotel is known as a casual vacation spot for celebrities and hip travelers from around the world.
