Baha Mar
by Roberta B. Turner

Baha Mar is located on Cable Beach in Nassau, Paradise Island. Cable Beach is home to one of the most breathtaking beaches you will find anywhere.  This resort complex boasts numerous brand hotels, offering the choice of three hotels: Grand Hyatt, SLS, and Rosewood, each offering its own unique style of luxury and world-class service so you can experience the beauty of a vacation in the Bahamas your way.

Each hotel offers complete access to all of Baha Mar, including The Sanctuary, Children’s Explorers Club, Baha Mar Casino, Jack Nicklaus Signature designed golf course, and ESPA spa.  Complimentary Wi-Fi is featured at all three properties.

The golf course features a front-nine featuring dramatic views of undulating fairways, rolling white sand dunes, and the turquoise waters of the Atlantic, to a back-nine that transports you to limestone “moonscapes,” elevation changes, and a dense jungle environment.  The course is a thrilling challenge to play.

Baha Mar’s tennis courts feature 9 meticulously maintained surfaces. Pick up a game, attend a clinic, take a private lesson, or visit the full-service Pro Shop.

If you like to workout with a view, the fitness center offers a wide range of fitness options in a stunning setting.

Baha Mar is home to the largest, most thrilling casino in The Bahamas featuring over a thousand state-of-the-art slot machines, and 119 action-packed tables offering blackjack, baccarat, roulette, poker, and so much more.   The casino overlooks the ocean in a luxurious and stunning location.

Whether you’re craving a special meal to remember or grabbing a quick bite with the kids, Baha Mar has it all. You will find everything from high-end dining experiences by renowned international chefs to more casual spots serving familiar favorites. Out in the sunshine, seaside airstream trailers and colorful beach shacks offer delicious meals with a classic, laid-back Bahamian vibe.

From luxury international brands to one-of-a-kind island finds, shopping at Baha Mar is an experience filled with discovery and delight. You will find name brands like Tiffany and Company, Rolex, and Chopard all at this resort.

Luxe, high-design accommodations are complemented by renowned, chef-driven dining destinations, spirited nightlife, and unsurpassed service.

Now is the perfect time to plan a visit to the Bahamas because the Islands need the tourism community now more than ever since tourism is their main economic generator. With the damage that the pandemic brought to the islands, the government will need a strong tourist season to recover.
