Romora BayRomora Bay Resort & Marina is looking to tap the local market during the summer months with special discounts for Nassau residents.

Joe Dargavage, general manager of the Harbour Island getaway, says the boutique hotel and marina is slicing rates in half for anyone who can show a Nassau address from now until December 1.

“When making your reservation, just let them know you are from Nassau, and want the Nassau Special,” he says.

“People from all over the world dream of walking the pink sand beaches of Harbour Island, swimming in the shimmering blue waters, dining at some of the finest restaurants in this hemisphere,” says Dargavage. “Foreign visitors book up to a year in advance. They travel hundreds or even thousands of miles to experience Harbour Island.”

Yet residents of Nassau all too often overlook the much sought-after iconic island, says Dargavage.

“I firmly believe that Nassau is the greatest untapped market for the Family Islands of The Bahamas, and especially for Harbour Island, because getting here is easy and getting around once you are here is even easier,” says Dargavage.

Located just off the northern tip of Eleuthera a few miles from the fishing village of Spanish Wells, the tiny island is only three miles long, about ½ mile wide and has a population of less than 2,000.

The International Monetary Fund has released the July 2016 update to the World Economic Outlook amid uncertainty following the UK EU referendum result.

A new Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development report says governments should use tax systems to drive an inclusive growth agenda – one that seeks to boost growth while sharing the benefits more evenly within society.
