Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis this week accepted a $500,000 donation from the Baha Mar resort to assist with temporary housing for residents affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Baha Mar president Graeme Davis said the funds represent the first instalment of a $2 million commitment made by the Cable Beach resort to help Abaco and Grand Bahama rebuild from the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian.


The resort has also launched a ‘Pack With Love’ campaign that encourages Baha Mar visitors to bring love and an item or two that can be shared directly with residents affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Guests are also given the opportunity to deliver their donations personally to shelters in New Providence that are housing Grand Bahama and Abaco evacuees.

Davis also noted that the resort is working hard to create awareness that Nassau and Paradise Island and the vast majority of other islands are open for business and ready to accept visitors.

The Prime Minister thanked Baha Mar for its continued support and efforts to assist in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.

Principals of Gonet Bank & Trust presented the government with a $200,000 cheque to support The Bahamas’ pavilion at 2020 Expo Dubai.

Baha Mar and its global hotel brands have been recognized in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2019. Conde Nast Traveler recognized each of Baha Mar’s three resort hotels, Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood, in the Top 25 Resorts in the Atlantic category.
