Melia Hotels International will be opening its first all-inclusive resort in the English-speaking Caribbean at the Baha Mar in the Bahamas.
Melia Hotels and the Chairmen of Baha Mar, Ltd announced the signing of an agreement to operate an all-inclusive property at what is the largest resort project in the Caribbean.
Beginning Dec. 1, 2013, Melia will take over operations at the current Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort at what will be called the Melia Nassau Beach Resort. The 694-room property will be executing a renewal plan that will be completed in December of 2014.
After a series of renovations, and upon the launch of the Baha Mar in late 2014, the hotel will be rebranded as Melia at Baha Mar.
Baha Mar, one of the most important destination transformation projects currently taking place in the world, will now include five hotels, private residences, gaming, golf, shopping, entertainment, and natural attractions that embody an authentic Bahamian experience. In addition to Meliá at Baha Mar, the stunning portfolio of Baha Mar properties will feature other prestigious international brands including Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®, Mondrian, and Grand Hyatt, all anchored by its impressive centerpiece, The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel.
