Officials of Baha Mar have announced that the resort destination will begin a phased reopening process starting on December 17, 2020. The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar will welcome guests first, followed by the Rosewood Baha Mar and SLS Baha Mar. When reopening begins, enhanced safety and health protocols will be in safe to continue to protect guests and employees from COVID-19.

Details of the Reopening Process

Because the Baha Mar facility is located in the Bahamas, any international travelers coming in will need to meet the entry protocols that are in place by The Islands. Guests will also be required to take a Rapid Antigen Test for COVID-19. This test will be complimentary to visitors upon arrival. This process is being done to ensure the health and safety of those on-site.

The facility has created The Baha Mar Commitment to Wellbeing, which is the properties protocols to wellbeing and safety onsite. Hygiene and sanitization practices have been enhanced across the resort as well as the casino and Performing Arts & Convention Center. Baha Mar reports that their protocols exceed the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control.

The enhanced cleaning protocols include the Grand Hyatt, Rosewood Baha Mar, and SLS, plus the Melia Nassau Beach. Heightened food safety protocols are in place including digital ordering for each location. Touchless payments will be provided along with enhanced housekeeping measures.

Graeme Davis, the President of Baha Mar, commented on the reopening announcement by stating: “We are thrilled to welcome back our associates and share Baha Mar with our guests once again. 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.”

Construction Continued

During Phase II, the construction on-site of the Nassau resort continued during the temporary closure. A total of $300 million has been invested in the project to upgrade and improve Melia Nassau Beach and other outdoor areas.

Baha Bay is a new luxury aquatic experience to be hosted by the property, with a completion date in 2021. New dining will also be opened at the Sugar Factor.
