Baha Mar, home to widely celebrated brands, Grand Hyatt, Rosewood, and SLS, will begin a phased reopening, welcoming back guests to Grand Hyatt Baha Mar on December 17, 2020.
The phased reopening approach will continue with the opening of Rosewood Baha Mar, followed by SLS Baha Mar. On December 17, Baha Mar will reopen to resort guests with enhanced safety and health measures in place. International travelers will be required to meet the entry protocols in place to visit The Bahamas. In addition to the entry requirements established by The Islands of The Bahamas, Baha Mar guests will be required to take a complimentary COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test upon arrival to the resort destination in an attempt to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of guests and associates during their stay.
As The Islands of The Bahamas open for international travel, Baha Mar looks forward to creating an environment for registered resort guests seeking a spectacular vacation experience through safely reimagined guest experiences. The Baha Mar Commitment to Wellbeing enhances hygiene and sanitization practices across Baha Mar Resort, Baha Mar Casino and The Performing Arts & Convention Center which exceed recommendations of The Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Baha Mar Commitment to Wellbeing includes revised cleanliness protocols that go above and beyond Baha Mar’s already rigorous standards, covering all brands across Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood Baha Mar, as well as Meliá Nassau Beach. Furthermore, the standards also include enhanced housekeeping and engineering, heightened food safety and digital ordering, touchless payments, and additional technology methods that allow for an abundance of contactless experiences from the moment guests check in at Baha Mar resort destination.

“We are thrilled to welcome back our associates and share Baha Mar with our guests once again,” said Graeme Davis, President, Baha Mar. “Resilient as ever, the Baha Mar team has persevered by looking toward a bright future, dedicated to preparing the resort for a successful reopening this December. Our focus on safety, health and well-being is our number one priority, and we have built upon the natural strengths and intimate experiences of the resort destination to re-introduce signature and new guest offerings. Over the past few months, Baha Mar has also continued with the resort destination’s expansion as an investment in the future of The Bahamas and the hospitality industry.”
On-property construction continued throughout the resort’s temporary closure as part of Phase II, a $300m investment in the evolution of the integrated resort destination, including contemporary upgrades and improvements to Meliá Nassau Beach and other outdoor offerings, such as Baha Bay Beach Club, and Baha Bay – the all new luxury aquatic experience, anticipated for completion in 2021; new dining including the debut of Sugar Factory, America’s favorite eatery and confectionary shop; and additions to the resort’s portfolio of luxury retail partnerships. The resort is also focused on enriching its signature amenities including state-of-the-art kid-friendly activities, refreshed wellness offerings, private art classes at The Current and more.
The reopening will include the glamorous Baha Mar Casino which will re-open with detailed safety protocol and guidelines in place. The largest casino in the Caribbean boasts 100,000 square feet of gaming space, state-of-the-art slot machines, table games, race and sports betting, mobile gaming, and exclusive high roller gaming salons with ample space for socially distant gaming. Private gaming areas will also be available to resort guests. The casino’s island-inspired design is complimented by natural daylight and breathtaking pool and ocean views.
