Baha Mar’s soft opening has been pushed back from the original target date of Friday, March 27, according to a statement provided to Hotel News Now by Baha Mar spokesperson Alyssa Bushey.

The statement reads, in full:


“From its inception, Baha Mar has committed to creating a gaming resort destination that will be unparalleled in the world. In setting our opening date for March 27, we relied in good faith on the representations of the resort’s construction manager and lead contractor. Last Friday (3/20), based on this party’s repeated assurances, Baha Mar announced that it would begin a paced opening beginning March 27 and culminating in its grand opening scheduled for early May.”

“Subsequently, it has become clear that the contractor has not completed the work with an attention to detail consistent with Baha Mar standards of excellence. Anything less than a world-class facility and best-in-class guest experience is not acceptable to Baha Mar. As a result, Baha Mar will not begin its paced opening on March 27.”

“Baha Mar expects to celebrate its grand opening the first week of May 2015, as planned.”

New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore remain the four leading global financial centres. New York remains the top centre, but by only one point on a scale of 1,000 over its nearest rival London. Tokyo, in fifth place, is 32 points behind the leaders, according to the 17th Global Financial Centres Index published this week by Z/Yen Group and sponsored by the Qatar Financial Centre Authority.
