There’s a new way to stay on the beach in one of the great undiscovered destinations in The Bahamas.
It’s called Caerula Mar Club, and the new boutique beach hotel is set in Andros, the largest island in The Bahamas.
Caerula Mar, which just welcomed its first guests in South Andros at the end of last month, is the brainchild of HGTV Canada personalities Sarah and Bryan Baeumler.
The boutique resort has a total of 18 suites, along with six private villas.
“We want Caerula Mar to feel like a home away from home where our guests are just as comfortable lounging by the pool as they are dining in one of our restaurants or asking for our guidance in regards to best ways to explore the island,” Sarah Baeumler told Caribbean Journal.
Caerula Mar is actually the reimagining of a resort that had last operated decades ago.
“We preserved a lot of the original resort’s construction to maintain an authentic Bahamian feel while modernizing and simplifying its design to create an atmosphere that’s relaxed and inviting, while seamlessly blending in with nature,” Baeumler said. “Our surroundings in South Andros are the most beautiful backdrop we could possibly have. Our suites and villas are steps away from the ocean — it’s like having your own private beach house.”
Amenities include a pool, a host of activities on offer, along with a gym, a boutique and spa, along with four dining concepts: the Driffs Bar and Lounge; a cafe called Switcha; a cocktail bar called Sundowners and the breakfast and dinner eatery Lusca.
The latter is “central to our culinary visition for Caerula Mar,” the owners said, pointing to a focus on “simple ingredients, freshly prepared.”
The launch of Caerula Mar is a big boost for Andros, which has been seeing increased renown in recent years as more and more travelers discover its rugged adventure, scintillating landscapes, copious blue holes and other boutique resorts like Small Hope Bay Lodge, Swains Cay and Tiamo, among others.
