*Mahogany Bay Private Beach Cabanas~ Price $225.99 / Cabana

Take a breathtaking chairlift ride on the Magical Flying Beach Chair from the Cruise Center directly to Mahogany Beach. There you can chill out with the family or alone with a good book (trust me, I get it) from the comfort of your private cabana. Soak in the obscenely killer view of the ocean and all its wonderment from one of the most envied vantage points on Mahogany Bay. My family will be celebrating our daughters 19th birthday at this mythical location as we are locked in for this excursion in less than 10 days. Woot!

• Air conditioned cabana accommodates up to four guests and includes the use of a semi-private beach area.
• It features two lounge chairs, a hammock, shared community beach furnishings, floats and waiter service.
• Note: The rental rate is per cabana. Only one guest need purchase the reservation for the group (maximum 4 guests). Chairlift tickets are included.
