The Bahamas have long been the perfect destination for so many in the United States looking for a relaxed getaway that requires only a short flight from a number of airports. With customs being a breeze, The Bahamas has a lot to offer guests of all ages and desires – the gorgeous white-sand beaches, turquoise colored waters and the warm sun make it attractive, but it is Baha Mar’s local Bahamian hospitality and the luxury of choice in the curated experiences at the resort that makes a visit to Baha Mar in The Bahamas so attractive.
As the “new kid” in Nassau, Baha Mar has set the bar for elegant resorts that provide guests with a sophisticated getaway in a way that is purely Bahamian. Nothing has been overlooked at this $4.2 billion integrated resort development, which includes three impressive hotel properties (Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood) that offer 2,300 rooms; 20 restaurants and lounges; the largest casino in the Caribbean; a state-of-the-art convention center; an 18-hole golf course by Jack Nicklaus; an ESPA spa; and more than 30 luxury retail outlets.
There is never a dull moment with all of the activities that are conveniently located among the 1,000-acre development, and with the beautiful white sand beach, the opportunities are infinite when curating your very own vacation experience. For those looking to stay active, consider teeing it up at Jack Nicklaus’ Signature Course, Royal Blue Golf Club, which provides golfers with a dynamic design that includes glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean and steep downhill terrain through the jungle. Tennis players of all skill levels can work with an instructor to sharpen their game, or challenge their friends and family on one of the six professional hard courts, two Har-Tru clay courts, or the grass court.
Working out at Baha Mar is a pleasure with the cutting-edge equipment in the gym, complete with stunning views and a variety of fitness classes. Of course, guests can relax by one of the many picturesque pools, but also further explore the lush surroundings, or venture out to the beach. To make the beach experience even more exciting, guests can take advantage of the extensive complimentary rental program that offers stand-up paddleboards, single and double kayaks, single and double clear-bottom kayaks, zayaks (reef boards), Hobie Cat sailboats, water hammocks, floating lounges, personal floats, snorkels, fins and masks.
When it is time to relax, the spa will not disappoint. As the first flagship ESPA Spa in the Caribbean (and the only ESPA Spa in The Bahamas), the philosophy of creating bespoke spa experiences that celebrate the local culture is alive and well with signature treatments inspired by The Bahamas. Overlooking the breathtaking white-sand beach and turquoise waters, the 30,000 square feet of spa bliss includes 24 treatment rooms, an outdoor relaxation area and spa boutique.
Baha Mar has proven to be an ideal solution for multi-generational vacations, as there is something for everyone, including a stylish high-end casino for adults; the Explorer’s Club for kids; and numerous pools and a serene beach to be enjoyed by all ages. The Baha Mar Casino is uniquely Bahamian with large windows that allow natural light and sensational views, but it also provides an array of slots, live table games and sport betting – making this 100,000 square foot casino a uniquely elegant Baha Mar experience that is superior to the best that Las Vegas has to offer. Parents love being able to have their kids enjoy the activities and challenges while learning more about the Bahamian culture and the environment as part of the Explorer’s Club, which is free for all guests ages 3-12.
What better way to round out your curated Baha Mar getaway than with an inside look at more than 2,500 pieces of art that is sourced by local artists? Thanks to an on-site curator, this exquisite collection includes a variety of styles that appeals to both the avid collector and the novice shopper. These local artists have the opportunity to use the studios on property, which provides guests with the unique ability to chat with the artists, and get to know the inspiration and background for the art seen throughout the property. From enjoying the sunshine at the pools and beaches, to appreciating the art collection and playing the tables in the casino, Baha Mar allows guests the rare opportunity to curate a one-of-a-kind getaway.
