As the most upscale of the three global hotels that make up Baha Mar (which also include the Grand Hyatt and SLS), a 1,000-acre development that took over a decade to complete, the Rosewood brings detached elegance to Cable Beach. While the massive grounds seem incessantly abuzz with pool parties and daybed drinking, guests at the Rosewood can rest assured that their sliver of this waterside wonderland is far more serene. Rooms are Pinterest-posh, dressed in soothing Caribbean blues, lavenders and corals, complimented by rattan, rope and painted lacquer accents. Though it’s the Living Room, a breathtaking foyer-like space with a bespoke island-inflected mural that adds the ultimate aesthetic wow factor here. And while the colossal complex offers a myriad of both sophisticated and fast-casual dining options, including a joint venture by sushi master Katsuya Uechi and design icon Philippe Starck and a seaside taco truck, the private island-style dinner for two at the Rosewood’s own 800-square-foot Rum Room is as exclusive as it gets.
In the Area
Located on the island of New Providence, Baha Mar is a ten-minute drive from Lynden Pindling International Airport. With prime access to Cable Beach, guests here are also just a quick dive away from some of the archipelago’s most stunning subaqueous views. The resort can facilitate snorkeling or scuba diving excursions around the world’s third largest barrier reef, home base for the endangered Nassau Grouper, eagle rays and octopi. Don’t leave without sampling the distinctly local combo that is conch salad and Sky Juice (a refreshing blend of fresh coconut water, condensed milk and gin)—the concierge can recommend a local joint.
How to Get There
My wife and I visited Rosewood Baha Mar for the second time this past weekend and we’re blown away how much the service has improved from when we visited in November 2018. From the second that we arrived we were surprised by how everyone we interacted with greeted us by name and went out of there way to make us feel at home.
One of the biggest challenges from our last visit was getting any service on the beach or the pool. Not anymore, we had folks stopping by constantly offering to refill our water bucket and bring us something from the menu - it was fantastic.
Restaurant staff went out of their way to ensure we had a special time at every dinner. The grounds and rooms were meticulously maintained and as beautiful as the first time we had visited last year.
Overall it was an amazing experience and we look forward to coming back for years to come. Thank you!
We came for a wedding/vacation. The accommodations were very nice. My room was clean and the presentation was pleasing. We loved the fruit/cheese basket and the rum cake. We enjoyed the attention that was given at the pool and the beach. Wait staff at the front desk and in the hotel/restaurant/outdoor (grounds) were very nice. I liked the beach bag and the hat. We will return.
Went here for our honeymoon and it was the best. INCREDIBLE staff, so friendly And accommodating. Beautiful rooms And decor. Amenities were great as well. All the restaurants were great too. Would definitely come back.
