The largest single-phase resort development in the Western Hemisphere, the numbers behind Baha Mar are eye-boggling enough. Costing $3.5 billion, the resort will comprise 4 luxury hotels containing more than 2,200 rooms and spread across 1,000 acres, with 3,000 feet of uninterrupted white sand beach at its doorstep.

And there’s more. Amenities will include a vast casino featuring 1,500 slots and 150 table games; an 18-hole, 72-par championship Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course; more than 30 restaurants, nightclubs and entertainment venues; and a 30,000 square feet ESPA spa. If you like it enough, an elite collection of 284 private residences are for sale, priced from US$1.5 million.

It is a remarkable project, and as we were shown around the construction site we learned more about its anticipated impact, including providing a giant lift to the local economy, adding a striking landmark to the Bahamas’ topography, and delivering a magnet for tourism from across the world.

Whilst The Bahamas already has its fair share of high-end resorts, Baha Mar aims to differentiate itself by targeting a younger, less family-oriented crowd. Mondrian, in particular, will serve as its beacon property for attracting young trend-setters.

At the heart of the development will be a vast casino, situated within the The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel – the only ‘own-branded’ hotel within Baha Mar. Described by Denise Godreau, Chief Marketing Officer of Baha Mar as offering “the excitement of Las Vegas with the high-end glamour of Monte Carlo”, the casino hotel will eschew the typical dark, windowless gambling room, and instead offer a light and airy space for patrons to enjoy, as well as relaxed poolside gambling via smart phones and tablets.

If those words conjure up an image of ultra-modern luxury living, then it is with good reason. Baha Mar may still be under construction, but its vision is already complete.

Transaero Airlines has announced that its interline agreement with WestJet has taken effect, offering Transaero passengers new opportunities for travel from Moscow. Via connections in Toronto and Los Angeles, Transaero passengers can now access the extensive WestJet network throughout Canada, the US, Mexico, the Caribbean, The Bahamas and Central America.

Morgans Hotel Group, which has partnered with the Baha Mar resort in The Bahamas, last month announced the launch of a new website, designed to improve the online booking experience.
