The recent opening of SLS Baha Mar is the latest chapter in the ongoing development of the ambitious Baha Mar project in Nassau, Bahamas, and is set to be followed in Spring this year by the launch of Rosewood Baha Mar. The integrated resort destination is being developed at a cost of US $4.2 billion and will bring together three global hotel brands – Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood – plus 40 restaurants and lounges, a 200,000 sq ft convention center, 18-hole Championship Jack Nicklaus Golf Course and Golf Club, the first ESPA flagship spa in the Caribbean, and more than 30 luxury retail outlets.
The newly opened SLS Baha Mar lives and breathes the brand’s dedication to striking design, beginning the moment guests arrive at the SLS Circle – a grand courtyard entrance with the aim of transporting guests from the world of everyday reality to the altogether more fun and fanciful universe of SLS. The hotel boasts a sexy, central sun-lounger-and-palm-tree-lined pool, plus another, both with butler service; 299 rooms (including 109 suites) with floor-to-ceiling windows to let in the dependably beautiful Caribbean sunshine. There’s also an array of drinking and dining options, a nightlife venue, and extensive indoor and outdoor space for conferences and social events.
This entire Caribbean wonderland of Baha Mar is set to offer visitors the best of Bahamian beach life, filtered through its various resorts and amenities to create a kind of kaleidoscopic, choose-your-own-adventure holiday. Golfers will delight in the Royal Blue Golf Course, designed to lead players through elevation changes, a dense jungle environment and rolling fairways (golf caddies will determine optimal tee locations each morning, ensuring a new experience each time you play). Families will delight in adventure activities, children’s club and beach fun; while those seeking romance, fine dining and total ‘me-time’ will no doubt also find their happy place in the sun. Stay posted for the grand opening later this year.
