A report from 4Hoteliers.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by the Bahamian subsidiary of Hong Kong-based development company Chow Tai Fook Enterprises (CTFE) to operate and manage Rosewood Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas, which will open in Spring 2018.
Set on the gorgeous white sands of Nassau’s Cable Beach, Rosewood Baha Mar will be a sanctuary of exclusivity, located within the stunning Baha Mar Resort multi-property oasis in the Caribbean.
“Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has had a relationship with Baha Mar since 2011, and we are truly excited to re-engage as the operator of Baha Mar’s luxury resort through our partnership with CTFE, Baha Mar Resort’s new owner,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are fully committed to this project and look forward to raising our flag in The Bahamas as originally planned.”
Featuring elegant British colonial architecture and interior styling, Rosewood Baha Mar will epitomize Bahamian refinement and sophistication. The resort will offer 185 ocean view rooms and suites, as well as five luxurious beachfront villas, which will be contemporary and residential in style. Each accommodation will be elegantly appointed with refined Bahamian art and décor. Of note, all guestrooms will boast private balconies with outdoor living areas, while the luxurious four-bedroom villas will offer exceptional tranquility, exclusive services and a private pool.
Amenities at Rosewood Baha Mar will include four signature dining venues including Commonwealth, a farm-to-table restaurant that will include a private Rum Room for exclusive, island-style dinners; the Pool Grille — an inspired, al fresco poolside restaurant that will serve fresh seafood, grilled dishes and cocktails; Bar Riva, a relaxed, nautical-themed bar where guests will enjoy craft cocktails and small plates, and the Library Lounge, which will feature Bahamian-style afternoon tea and unique tea cocktails. Recreational facilities will include Sense, A Rosewood Spa, salon, barber shop, fitness center, two private swimming pools and luxury cabanas. Additionally, guests will have direct and private beach access.
Eight meeting and event spaces will provide the perfect setting for corporate meetings, retreats and incentives. The venues – including a 4,950-square-foot ballroom, meeting room, boardrooms, private dining room and two al fresco event areas – will offer exquisite catering, refined service and state-of the art technology.
Rosewood Baha Mar will join a regional network of distinctive Rosewood properties in the Caribbean and Atlantic, including Jumby Bay, A Rosewood Resort, Rosewood Tucker’s Point and Rosewood Little Dix Bay, which is slated to re-open in 2017.
