The Club Med Columbus in The Bahamas.

This Bahamas All-Inclusive Resort Just Reopened 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 21, 2023

It’s the frontier of The Bahamas: the far-off island of San Salvador, a tiny destination with sparkling blue water, a remarkable history and some of the best diving and snorkeling on earth

Now, the island’s biggest hotel is open again, with the relaunch of the Club Med Columbus all-inclusive resort. 

The property, which just reopened its doors for the season this weekend, is set on 1,500 feet of beachfront on San Salvador’s coastline. 

The resort has a total of nearly 240 rooms, set across a collection of two-story bungalows.

There are several dining options, from La Pinta, a beach lounge with all-day dining, now offering Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. 

The main restaurant, Christopher’s, is also adding new plant-based menu items following a training led by noted vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli. 

The resort has also enhanced its wellness program, with a new “Wellness Fusion” program including comprehensive yoga, meditation, moonlit massages and holistic treatments at the Club Med Spa by Sothys.

The resort also has a partnership with Only Blue Diving to help discover the island’s undersea world. 

San Salvador is best known as the landing point of Christopher Columbus on his initial voyage to the New World in 1492, a moment marked by an monument that can be accessed only by snorkeling or diving.
