While it looks like the Meliá Nassau at the Baha Mar resort complex in the Bahamas will still be opening in November, the Baha Mar resort as a whole will not actually open until May 2015. Previously, the resort, which is being billed as "The Bahamaian Riviera" was to open in December.
Indeed, a recent Facebook giveaway for the Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar hotel says the 5-day hotel stay awarded to the winner is only bookable after May 1, 2015. So that's probably a good idea of the actual opening date for the resort as a whole. Meanwhile, the Grand Hyatt's website says the property will open in Spring 2015. Maybe we can hope for an April opening? Interestingly, the Rosewood at Baha Mar's website still says 2014 but that might change.
Either way, your plans for spending the holidays in the Bahamas at a new resort may have to be changed.
The multi-billion dollar resort wonderland that is Baha Mar in the Bahamas, is not scheduled to open until December but already there's so much to get excited about. We've shown you a sneak peek at the luxury Rosewood Resort and we've dished out the details on the forthcoming SLS Resort and now we've got some insight to the only upscale all-inclusive resort set to open at Baha Mar--The Meliá Nassau Beach.
Already, $19 million worth of renovations are underway on the former Sheraton resort. While the resort is actually open during the renovations, these should be complete by November and that's when the hotel will officially open as a Meliá.
Baha Mar just announced the switcheroo this morning of SLS taking over the operations of a 300-room property at Baha Mar which Mondrian was previously set to run.
Renowned for its high concept design aesthetic that fosters social engagement, SLS Hotels is the brand that introduced the idea of the hotel as a social experience. SLS at Baha Mar will feature 300 distinctively styled rooms that continue the brand's tradition of celebrating creativity, culture, fashion and art as part of the pursuit of our guests' passions.
Indeed, the Mondrian has been wiped from the website and the entryway of the SLS at Beverly Hills has been slotted in on the SLS page instead.
The resort and hotel wonderland that is Baha Mar, aka The Bahamian Riviera, is still under construction but today, we've got a sneak peek at one of the rooms at the Rosewood at Baha Mar, opening in December.
This is actually a rendering of what one of the 190-beach view rooms and suites will look like. Hello, turquoise sofa! And that massive headboard behind the bed actually does double-duty as a wardrobe.
The Baha Mar site has a few more renderings of the Rosewood's lobby, library and lobby bar which are done in the same "Caribbean luxe" decor. Think bright colors, airy spaces, mahogany wood accents and detailed furniture.

This morning we spent some time updating the Master Openings List but there's one update we're really intrigued by--The Baha Mar Resort, opening in December in the Bahamas with no less than FIVE different hotel brands inside. We knew it was gonna be big but this is crazy big.
In total, the complex, nicknamed the "Bahamian Riviera", will have a total of 2,900 hotel rooms and residences, a 100,000 square foot casino, an 18-hole, 72-par Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, an ESPA spa and more than a dozen pools. Plus, a 200,000 square feet convention center. We know, insane!
Of course, we're most interested in the hotels that will open and it's quite a mix. The five resorts are as follows:
