The Ritz-Carlton Reserve Heading to Eleuthera, Bahamas

Marriott International, Inc. has entered into an agreement with Cotton Bay Holdings to introduce a Ritz-Carlton Reserve on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The resort joins an exclusive collection of only five Ritz-Carlton Reserve properties around the world.

“We are thrilled to bring the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand and service to this pristine island in the Great Bahama Bank” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer, Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott International. “We are excited to partner with Cotton Bay Holdings in developing this luxury resort, where the original Cotton Bay Club was built in 1959.”

Located on the southern end of the island, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Eleuthera will feature an open-air resort including 90 intimate rooms forming part of the community once known as the iconic Cotton Bay Club. Facilities will include an 18-hole golf course, a spa, swimming pools and restaurants. Plans also call for the inclusion of 60 Ritz-Carlton Reserve-branded residences, which are expected to include a mix of two- to five-bedroom villas. Each privately owned residence will offer refined design and a "one-of-a-kind" luxury experience for owners.

Marriott International currently operates five properties under the Reserve brand across Mexico, Puerto Rico, Japan, Thailand and Indonesia. There is no word yet on when travelers can expect the opening of Eleuthera outpost.
