Grand Bahama’s Old Bahama Bay Reopens

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - November 4, 2019

One of the most popular places to stay in Grand Bahama has officially returned in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. 

The island’s Old Bahama Bay Resort and Yacht Club reopened its doors over the weekend. 

“We are officially open,” the resort wrote in a statement. “We can’t wait to have you back into our slice of paradise.”

It’s one of several hotels in Grand Bahama that have already relaunched, a quick comeback just a few months after the storm. 

Grand Bahama’s cruise sector has also seen a strong recovery, with cruise lines like Carnival and Bahamas Paradise already having made their returns.

The hotel’s reopening comes after Old Bahama Bay’s marina and yacht club had already returned to full capacity. 

The 73-unit resort’s Teasers Beach Side Bar, Banana Hammocks Harbour Side Bar and pool are all open as well. 

The property’s return “has truly shown the strength of our staff and stakeholders here at Old Bahama Bay,” said Old Bahama Bay President John MacDonald.
