Hyatt to Manage Baha Mar Properties Under Pact

Agreements to enable the long-awaited opening of the $3.5 billion Baha Mar mega-resort continue to fall into place.

A Hyatt Hotels Corporation affiliate will manage the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, the Baha Mar Convention Center and several restaurants, bars and lounges at the Baha Mar property under a management agreement with CTF BM Operations Ltd., said Hyatt officials in a statement.

Baha Mar will open in a “phased” manner beginning April 21 under a management agreement reached between Hyatt and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises (CTFE), the mega-resort’s owners. The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, which will be the resort’s anchor property, will offer 1,800 guestrooms, including 227 suites with high-end amenities.

Hyatt will operate the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar’s two main towers—one connected to the resort’s 100,000 square-foot casino and another adjacent to the convention center—which will offer more than 85,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space. The hotel will also offer three restaurants including a 200-seat main restaurant, a pool bar and grill and a jazz-themed lounge.

“We are delighted to welcome Hyatt to Baha Mar when Grand Hyatt Baha Mar debuts,” said Graeme Davis, Baha Mar’s president. “The Grand Hyatt hotel will contribute to the Baha Mar guest experience and join us in our commitment to offering an elevated standard in luxury beach and casino resort destinations.”

“It is an honor to soon be part of the Baha Mar family, and Hyatt is thrilled to reaffirm its commitment to Baha Mar and to work together to create an exciting new destination in the Bahamas,” said Myles McGourty, senior vice president, Latin America and Caribbean, Hyatt.

The Baha Mar property will also include a 300-room SLS Baha Mar hotel slated to open in the third quarter of 2017 and a 240-room Rosewood property that will launch in the spring of 2018.
