Baha Mar was given the Transaction of the Year Award for 2017 at the Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS) last week. This comes as the resort complex cuts the ribbon on its last hotel tower to open – The Rosewood.
CHRIS was held at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami where Baha Mar bested the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico and the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman Resort in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands for the top spot as the best transaction of 2017.
CHRIS’ release on the win explains: “Baha Mar is a comprehensive integrated resort covering an area of approximately 1,000 acres (400 hectares) ideally located in New Providence Island’s Cable Beach area. With three luxury hotels (Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, SLS Baha Mar, and Rosewood Baha Mar) totaling over 3,000 keys and a long list of amenities including an expansive casino, convention center, spa and TPC-class golf course.”
The release added that since Baha Mar began its phased opening, beginning with the opening of the Grand Hyatt tower last April, it has quickly garnered “acclaim for excellence in hospitality”.
SLS at Baha Mar opened in November. Since then, the Grand Hyatt has received Jetsetter magazine’s “2018 Best of the Best Hotel – Best For Families” award. Jetsetter magazine is a global luxury hospitality online publication that features more than 200 contributing journalists.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar became the first hotel in The Bahamas to receive a Jetsetter “Best of the Best” designation.
The final hotel of the $4 billion Baha Mar resort will be ceremonially opened tonight as it prepares for stays commencing 1 June.
