Introducing January’s US Spa of the Month, and our first Spa focus for 2021; the breathtaking Baha Mar resort in the Bahamas.
Baha Mar is a master planned $4.2 billion integrated resort development. The white sand beach destination includes three global brand operators – Grand Hyatt, SLS, and Rosewood – with over 2,300 rooms and 40 restaurants and lounges, the largest casino in the Caribbean, a state-of-the-art convention center, an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Royal Blue Golf Course, the Caribbean’s first and only flagship ESPA spa, and over 30 luxury retail outlets. Baha Mar is a breathtaking location with dynamic programming, activities and guest offerings in one of the most beautiful places in the world – The Bahamas.
ESPA at Baha Mar will continue to ensure our guests have a comfortable and unforgettable experience. They have enhanced their health and safety protocols in all operations in accordance with the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines and with local government officials to ensure the safety of our guests. This includes temperature checks upon arrival, face coverings while traversing through the spa, increased cleaning and sanitization protocols, and physical distancing measures.
“We are thrilled to welcome back our associates and share Baha Mar with our guests once again,” said Graeme Davis, President, Baha Mar.
Since its opening just over three years ago, Baha Mar has provided guests with a collection of intimate experiences that have naturally evolved into an appealing haven for those looking to safely vacation in the Caribbean. Set along the expansive pristine white sands of Cable Beach and the turquoise waters, Baha Mar features an abundance of outdoor activities for sun-soaked days, warm island breezes and nights under the stars – from spacious private cabanas at eight of our signature pools to Royal Blue Golf Course, individual tennis at Baha Mar Racquet Club and educational encounters with nurse sharks, stingrays, and flamingos.
New in 2020, Baha Mar’s state-of-the-art Explorers Club encompasses over 6,000 square feet, offering an abundance of exciting activities, educational wildlife encounters and games to entertain the young explorers, ages 3-12. Experienced Explorer Counselors will spend time teaching kids about tropical marine and land animals as well as Bahamian art, culture and history through art projects, culinary experiments and games, as well as educational wildlife experiences at The Sanctuary.

Bahamian cuisine is as vibrant and diverse as the country itself. Fresh, local ingredients and time-honoured culinary traditions make The Bahamas an extraordinary destination for food lovers.
Local specialties often make use of bountiful seafood that surrounds the island, such as grouper and snapper served a multitude of delicious ways. You’ll also taste tropical fruits such as mango, coconut, and guava in many dishes, and in cocktails like the daiquiri and the Goombay Smash.
The Bahamian culinary scene continues to evolve, as chefs from around the world flock to the islands, bringing international flavours with them and exchanging ideas with local culinary experts steeped in the customs of The Bahamas.
