Grand Hyatt Baha Mar offers 1,800 ocean-, fountain-, and island-view guest rooms, including 230 suites all featuring tropical accents, dramatic architecture, and local art. The hotel is part of the three-hotel complex known as Baha Mar, a high-end resort playground with the Caribbean’s largest casino, a flagship ESPA, 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, and numerous restaurants, luxury boutiques, and nightclubs. Just steps from the hotel lobby is lovely Cable Beach and Grand Hyatt’s BEACH Sanctuary, which is reserved exclusively for guests. Experience island-inspired and global cuisine from acclaimed local and international chefs, be it cocktails on the beach at Out Island Bar or Mediterranean cuisine served from an open kitchen at 3 Tides. After dinner, soak in the suave environment of the Blue Note, a jazz-themed bar pairing classic cocktails and live music.
In the Area
Sporty types will have a field day with the activities available at the resort. For a start, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course features ocean views and beautiful natural topography. Then there’s the The Racquet Club at Baha Mar, where you can perfect a swing of a different kind on one of the nine clay, hard, and grass tennis courts. Just steps from the resort is Cable Beach, a stretch of boutique stores, bars, and restaurants. Explore Bay Street and stroll through the lively open-air Straw Market where local craftsmen sell handwoven items, island souvenirs, and other charming goods. Alternatively, you can explore the underwater world on a scuba adventure with Stuart Cove’s, a dive shop with skilled divers who have been leading trips to reefs, wrecks, and coral walls since the 1970s. If you’re more of a landlubber and have a taste for rum, head instead to John Watling’s, a famous Bahamian distillery in downtown Nassau housed in the 1789 Buena Vista Estate.
How to Get There
Just returned from spending four nights at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar and I wish it was more. We split our vacation between Atlantis & the Baha Mar and our whole family preferred the Baha Mar hands down. We had 3 rooms in the West tower all with ocean views and felt it was worth the upgrade charge.
I went to Nassau with my family. We booked at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar through Costco Travels. I definitely recommend booking through Costco Travels which includes the stay at the resort, the resort fee, daily gratuities, and 100 USD towards room charges. This is a cashsless resort and so everything is charged to the room. We booked a double bed in the east tower with the fountain view. The room was big enough for four people and really comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and very welcoming. There water bottles in the room and you can always order more complimentary. There are many restaurants in the resort to choose from, restaurants inside the resort are a bit pricey. There are also food trucks by the beach, which have reasonable prices. The food trucks close at 6 however. I definitely recommend eating at the food trucks if you have a chance, El Jefe, Sandy Dog, and SliDderrzz. We ate at Costa, the first day, which is a Mexican restaurant. The food was average and the prices very high. We also ate at Fi'lia which is an Italian restaurant. I would definitely do not recommend Fi'lia, the prices way to high for the quality of the food, they charged us $12.00/water bottle. If you get a chance take a taxi to downtown Nassau and find restaurants there or just go to fish fry (group of 20 restaurants that sell Bahamian food). The pools heated and very clean. Staying in the pools was very relaxing. There are soo many options to choose from when it comes to pools. Make sure to go to the pool with the H2O bar and have a drink, they have the best cocktails. All the pools are very nice and relaxing. The beach is clean and the staff is readily available to set up nonmotorized sports for you, which is free of cost. Make sure to order in-room dining while during your stay at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, the food is good, less pricey that restaurants and the services are excellent. The staff is very very nice, always ready to help with a smile, they make you feel welcome and make an effort to make your trip comfortable and relaxing. I would most certainly stay at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar if I visit Nassau again.
Hotel and grounds were pretty & clean other than cigarette smell in lobby. We got good deal on room/flight, however food/drinks were over priced and not great quality. I would take advantage while property is still new if I returned.
