Baha Mar – Nassau, Bahamas


Grand Hyatt is the first part of this compound to open. Baha Mar will be comprised of three luxury brands, SLS, this one and a Rosewood property. The largest casino in the Caribbean has been built here, but the views to the pools, water features and the great outdoors are easily accessible with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors, making it seems far more spacious and less confining than other casinos. Everything you’d expect from this sort of hotel is here. The dining options range from noodle bars to Katsuya Japanese restaurant. The retail therapy is ot far from the gaming tables as casinos often do, but if high end luxury watches and jewelry aren’t your game, be sure to pop down to the shopping district for a breath of fresh air and fresh island collections, from clothing and accessories to fun finds for the entire family.


The casino may be at the heart of this resort complex but there’s plenty to do for families. The design was built as a destination unto itself. The right amount of splashy entertainment, water that turns into fire at night, a Nicklaus designed golf course, a range of culinary options, the first ESPA spa in the Caribbean and an explosion of art along the way. There are a variety of resorts to choose from in Nassau and Paradise Island and Baha Mar is betting you’ll fall in love with theirs and keep coming back.  Although the common areas like the Casino and some of the Grand Hyatt pools are shared amongst guests at all three properties, each also has their own exclusive areas reserved only for their clientele. That concept alone should have visitors coming back or booking stays that are long enough to check-in to each hotel and check out their individual offerings. Casino aside, they are banking on you enjoying the three celebrated hotels and their collection of lounges as the concept is designed for the spectacular.
