Property History & Fun Facts

The Retreat is operated by the Centre for Training and Innovation (CTI) and is the only training hotel in The Bahamas.
Originally The Rock Sound Club & Resort was built in the 1950s and partially restored in 2015 and 2016 by the One Eleuthera Foundation, a non-profit organization. The project was part of an effort to restore Eleuthera’s rich historic legacy. The offices of OEF are currently housed on the same property.
In the 1950’s and 60’s the Rock Sound Club was the playground of Frank Sinatra, Sammie Davis Jr., Dean Martin and members of the “Rat Pack” who frequented the resort. Here they partied the night away, dancing until the wee hours of the morning to the big sounds of jazz and “swing.”
The property was originally the grounds of a plantation home and still maintains many of the same flowers, fauna, and medicinal plants from over a century ago.
The Kirtland Warbler, an endangered species from Michigan is a common sight at The Retreat. This rare bird migrates south to Eleuthera and The Bahamas during the fall/winter season to enjoy the warm weather.
