The Bahamas' Baha Mar Resort Scheduled to Fully Reopen

After a successful phased reopening of two of its hotels (the Grand Hyatt and SLS Baha Mar) and a selection of restaurants and amenities, Baha Mar will complete its final phase of reopening with its third and final hotel, the Rosewood, on March 4, 2021.

Baha Mar is a world-class 1,000-acre resort complex on the island of New Providence on Cable Beach in Nassau, The Bahamas. The mega-resort comprises three major hotel brands that seamlessly work together, yet function separately, to provide an unforgettable luxury experience (ca.travelpulse.com). The hotels include the Grand Hyatt, SLS Baha Mar, and Rosewood, with 2,200 rooms and 284 private residences.

Each hotel has its own personality and unique qualities. Located as an anchor between the other two hotels, the Grand Hyatt consists of an east and west tower decorated with an underlining water theme. Its modern and elegant rooms range from one to three bedrooms, and while not family-focused, it is family-friendly (ca.travelpulse.com).

Known as the party hotel, the SLS Baha Mar typically attracts a younger crowd interested in indulgent culinary experiences and a celebratory lifestyle (ca.travelpulse.com). The rooms are exquisitely decorated with white modern décor. It is home to a rooftop lounge, exclusive pool parties, many high-end restaurants, and a nightclub.

The newest and most glamorous hotel is the Rosewood Baha Mar. The Rosewood’s guest experience encompasses the intimacy of being hosted by a close friend and the poshness of a truly luxurious vacation. High tea is served daily in the library, and the hotel is beautifully decorated with hand-painted native motifs on the walls and a carefully curated collection of local art (ca.travelpulse.com). With the addition of a private pool and beach available to only hotel guests, the Rosewood offers a relaxed, exclusive sanctuary for those willing to splurge. 

Amenities of the Baha Mar complex, which are open to both guests and the general public, include a 100,000-square-foot (9,300 m2) casino, a 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) spa, The Current Gallery and Art Center, and a Tournament Players Club golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus (en.wikipedia.org).

Just 70 square miles, Aruba is a small gem basking in the warmth of the southern Caribbean. However, it is not only the bright sunshine, turquoise water, and white sand that make Aruba sparkle; it is the multifaceted blend of over 90 different nationalities among over 110 thousand residents living happily together.

Aruba's diverse people are known for their warm, friendly, and welcoming nature. They are inclusive of newcomers, and their sunny dispositions radiate throughout the island, earning Aruba's well-coined slogan "one happy island."

In addition to Aruba's "happy" reputation, an unmistakable beauty and richness originate from its history, culture, architecture, music, art, handmade crafts and jewelry, and weekly Carrubian Festival.  

From Aruba's ancient Caquetio Indian roots, to its Spanish and Dutch rule, to its modern-day standing as a constituent country of the Netherlands, Aruba's history dates back centuries (aruba.com). Rock drawings and carvings created by the Caquetios can still be seen at Fontein Cave in Arikok National Park and at the Ayo Rock Formation. Their unique patterns and designs continue to influence Aruba's art, architecture, currency, fabric, and jewelry. They even can be found on T-shirts!

The bright and colorful Dutch architecture adds an artful, upbeat flare.

 Aruba's music is a medley of influences from all over the world infused with its own unique local rhythms, style, and beats. The Aruban art scene spans all forms of expression (aruba.com), ranging from open-air public art installations to mural projects that both locals and visitors enjoy.  Original Aruban art is plentiful in shops and street fairs, as are also handmade crafts and jewelry. Beaded necklaces are popular, and the handmade authenticity of the art, crafts, and jewelry adds a layer of cultural importance and visual beauty that permeates Aruba.

Every Thursday night is the Carrubian Festival held in San Nicolas (also known as "Sunrise City"). Music, costumes, food, and dancing in the streets bond locals and visitors alike in a joyous celebration of cultural heritage.
