The long-awaited Baha Mar Resort in Nassau, Bahamas is now completely open. The once shuttered, multi-billion dollar project was supposed to be fully operational around March of 2015 before a legal dispute between Baha Mar and the project’s construction company forced the resort to close when it was nearly 97 percent finished.

And now?

The last resort to open, Rosewood Baha Mar, recenlty celebrated its ribbon cutting ceremony, joining the already opened Grand Hyatt and SLS properties. Across the three global hotel brands, Baha Mar now offers 2,300 rooms, suites and villas, as well as one of the largest casino in the Caribbean.

The resort also includes an ESPA spa; more than 40 restaurants, bars and lounges; marine life experiences at The BEACH Sanctuary; Bahamian art and culture at The Current; shopping destinations; a Performing Arts and Convention Center and tennis and golf at the Peter Burwash International Baha Mar Racquet Club and the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed Signature Royal Blue golf course.

Rosewood Baha Mar has 237 rooms and suites, as well as four beachfront villas, featuring British Colonial architecture and interior decor specifically designed to highlight Bahamian culture.

Baha Mar will also welcome Rosewood's signature dining outlets, the farm-to-table Commonwealth with a private rum room, and the contemporary coastal Mexican option, Costa.

Baha Mar currently employs more than 4,000 associates, and plans to increase that number throughout 2018. Over the next few years, it is projected that Baha Mar will contribute 12 percent of The Bahamas' gross domestic product (GDP), according to a Baha Mar news release.  

Airlift to the destination has also increased substantially throughout the last year, as top airlines add additional direct flight markets, seat count and frequency of flights from the United States and Canada. Since the opening of Baha Mar resorts, Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, Bahamas has reported the highest number of passenger arrivals in the last decade, according to the Baha Mar release.
