Baha Mar Begins Taking Reservations After Two-Year Delay


Officials were on deck Friday for the ribbon-cutting ceremony of Baha Mar, officially opening the long-delayed beach resort in the Bahamas.

The $4.2 billon integrated resort  will open in two phases. Phase one includes the preview of The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar; Baha Mar Casino – the Caribbean's largest at 100,000 square feet; the Baha Mar Convention, Art and Entertainment Center; the Peter Burwash International tennis courts and facilities; and multiple restaurants, bars and lounges.

The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar has 1,800 rooms, five resort pools, dramatic fountain shows and a Royal Blue Golf Club. It’s now taking reservations for stays beginning May 29.

Once fully opened next year, the resort also will include a 300-room SLS Lux hotel near its eastern end and a 200-room Rosewood property.

Hong Kong-based Chow Tai Fook Enterprises acquired the resort late last year, investing about $200 million. It was originally scheduled to open in 2015, but was delayed due to conflicts between the first developer and the Bahamian and Chinese governments.
