The Baha Mar megaresort in Nassau, The Bahamas has announced its long-awaited reopening, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The three-resort property on Cable Beach in Nassau is reopening to guests on Dec. 17, the Baha Mar confirmed on Wednesday.
All guests at the resort will be required to take a complimentary rapid antigen test upon arrival.
The relaunch of the resort will kick off with the relaunch fo the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, as previously reported by Caribbean Journal, followed by the Rosewood Baha Mar and then the SLS Baha Mar.
The Dec. 17 date will also include the opening of many of the Baha Mar’s restaurants, including Katsuya, Fili’a, 3 Tides Fish House, Stix Noodle Bar, Drift and Carna by Dario Cecchini.
The Baha Mar’s 100,000-square-foot casino will also reopen, with new safety protocols in place, and the property is launching a number of new retail outlets including Montblanc, Tory Burch, Hackett of London, Satchel and Co. and Carlo Milano.
The news comes after The Bahamas entered the next phase of its tourism reopening on Nov. 1, paving the way for the relaunch of the country’s major hotel and resorts.
“We are thrilled to welcome back our associates and share Baha Mar with our guests once again,” said Graeme Davis, President of Baha Mar. “Resilient as ever, the Baha Mar team has persevered by looking toward a bright future, dedicated to preparing the resort for a successful reopening this December. Our focus on safety, health and well-being is our number one priority, and we have built upon the natural strengths and intimate experiences of the resort destination to re-introduce signature and new guest offerings. Over the past few months, Baha Mar has also continued with the resort destination’s expansion as an investment in the future of The Bahamas and the hospitality industry.”
That investment included nearly $300 million toward upgrades and improvements to the property’s Melia Nassau Beach and outdoor eateries like the Baha Bay Beach Club and Baha Bay, a new “luxury aquatic experience” set for completion in 2021.
