Bahamas’ Deep Water Cay Plans $168 Million Expansion, Six Senses Resort

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 7, 2016

Another big project is coming to the Bahamas.

The Deep Water Cay resort community in the Bahamas is planning a major expansion, the country’s government announced this week.

The Bahamian government has approved a $168 million expansion of the island’s resort, with Six Senses as operator of a five-star, mixed-use project.

According to Minister for Grand Bahama Michael Darville, the project will be phased over a seven-year period.

The project is slated to include 56 hotel keys and 65 custom-built residences, along with a 7,000-square-foot, two-story spa and fitness center.

Also coming on stream will be five eateries, including a full-service restaurant, a cooking school for guests and 2,500 square feet flexible space for meetings and events.

Six Senses operates a portfolio of resorts and spas around the world, with most of its resort located in Asia.

Its spa-only portfolio is focused in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, although the company does operate a spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Deep Water Cay is off the eastern end of Grand Bahama.

It has long been a celebrity favorite and magnet for high-level fishing.
