NASSAU, Bahamas — Tuesday signified a momentous occasion in The Bahamas as the Baha Mar megaresort marked the completion of its phased opening, and the fulfilment of the resort development’s commitment to create the ultimate “luxury of choice” destination in the Caribbean.
In its inaugural year, Baha Mar has delivered on the timely arrivals of the three global hotel brands on property, Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood Baha Mar, which debuts this month.
Across the three global hotel brands, Baha Mar now offers 2,300 rooms, suites and villas, as well as the largest casino in the Caribbean; flagship ESPA spa; world-class dining with over 40 restaurants, bars and lounges; marine life experiences; Bahamian art and culture; luxury and locally-inspired shopping destinations; the state-of-the-art Performing Arts and Convention Center and the highest levels of tennis and golf.
“We are elated to announce the completion of Baha Mar, and celebrate Rosewood Baha Mar’s opening,” said Graeme Davis, president of Baha Mar. “We are proud to introduce to the world Baha Mar’s complete guest offerings: a truly one-of-a-kind resort destination, celebrating the beauty of the Caribbean, combined with your choice of luxurious accommodations, and Bahamian hospitality. Baha Mar provides guests with unprecedented experiences, activities, and amenities, elevating the island vacation experience through a passionate dedication to community, culture and conservation.”
Set on the white sands of Nassau’s Cable Beach, Rosewood joins SLS Baha Mar and Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in celebrating the spirit of The Bahamas, offering guests Bahamian refinement and sophistication. A sanctuary of exclusivity within the stunning Baha Mar enclave, Rosewood Baha Mar boasts 237 rooms and suites, as well as four beachfront villas, featuring British colonial architecture and interior décor specifically designed to highlight Bahamian culture. Baha Mar will also welcome Rosewood’s signature dining outlets.
As a leading employer in the Bahamas, Baha Mar currently employs more than 4,000 associates, and plans to increase that number throughout 2018. Over the next few years, it is projected that Baha Mar will contribute 12 percent of The Bahamas’ GDP.
Airlift to the destination has also increased substantially throughout the last year, as top airlines add additional direct flight markets, seat count and frequency of flights from the United States and Canada. Since the opening of Baha Mar resorts, Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, Bahamas has reported the highest number of passenger arrivals in the last decade.
