Baha Mar, the new $3.5 billion resort, will introduce a new era of luxury, glamour, gaming and excitement to The Bahamas when it begins hosting paid guests on March 27, 2015, at Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood at Baha Mar and SLS LUX at Baha Mar. Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar will open shortly after.
"Baha Mar will bring a new level of sophistication and resort experience to one of the most sought-after travel destinations in the Caribbean with its March 27 opening. We are thrilled to welcome our first guests to 'The New Riviera' in time for the peak spring travel weeks," said Paul V. Pusateri, chief operating officer for Baha Mar.
Baha Mar will feature 2,200 luxury guest rooms across four hotels - Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood at Baha Mar, Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar and SLS LUX at Baha Mar - along with the Caribbean's largest casino, a 100,000 square foot masterpiece featuring a full array of the latest slots and table games. In addition, the resort's TPC at Baha Mar Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, ESPA spa, pools, beach experiences, and many restaurants and luxury shops will be part of the highly anticipated resort experience upon opening.
"A dream starts great endeavors, but it is only a beginning. Baha Mar's vision will truly come to life once the first guests sleep in our hotels, dine at our restaurants, snorkel at our reef, lounge at our Cabana Club, play at our casino, dance in our clubs until dawn-and experience the true soul of The Bahamas with impeccable service and joyful hospitality. This dream has been years in the making, and on March 27, 2015, it will finally become a reality," said Tom Dunlap, Baha Mar's president, about the resort's opening date announcement.
Baha Mar also recently launched a new digital campaign with its short-film, 'The Voyage,' that debuted on an updated website (www.bahamar.com) on January 5. Capturing the iconic ambiance and travels that inspired Baha Mar, the film portrays the resort's future as the world's next great destination. The new Baha Mar site also allows for enhanced hotels and amenity research, comparison and booking, making it easy to plan a memorable stay at the mega resort.
After years of planning and building, it is not surprising that Baha Mar has a series of opening celebrations, including a Ribbon Cutting Gala and a Grand Opening Event scheduled for April and May 2015, respectively. Produced by Jamie King and Emilio Estefan, two of the leading names in music and entertainment-the events promise to be a celebration of sophistication and style spanning several days and combining both private and public festivities. Baha Mar will also kick off Riviera Summer, a four-month celebration with entertainment events from Memorial Day weekend to late September.
Baha Mar is set on 3,000 feet of white sandy beach just 10 minutes from Nassau's fully renovated and expanded international airport. It will feature an elite collection of hotel brands with gaming, entertainment, private residences, shopping and natural attractions that reflect an authentic Bahamian experience. The resort's Grand Opening celebration is planned for May 2015. The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel includes a 1,000-room hotel and a 100,000-square-foot Las Vegas-style casino. Baha Mar also will include a 700-room Grand Hyatt, a 300-room SLS LUX, and a 200-room Rosewood at Baha Mar. Amenities will include TPC at Baha Mar, a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course; 200,000 square feet of flexible convention facilities, including a 2,000-seat entertainment venue; an ESPA spa; art galleries featuring Bahamian art; more than 40 restaurants, bars and clubs; global luxury designer and local artisan boutiques; and 20 acres of exquisitely landscaped beach and pool experiences, including a beachfront sanctuary with native Bahamian flora and fauna. In addition, upon completion of renovations, the all-inclusive Meliá Nassau Beach will become part of Baha Mar.
