Baha Mar, Nassau - Our pick as the best overall resort in the Bahamas for vacation fun and relaxation.
Our month-long trip in May was a blast. We loved fishing with all our friends on Andros. Great time! Then spending a week at the SLS Hotel in the Baha Mar resort was the perfect way finish -- to relax, log pool and beach time, eat at fine dining restaurants, and enjoy the nightlife.
The Baha Mar resort also includes the Grand Hyatt Hotel and the Rosewood Baha Mar. We loved the South Beach vibe of the SLS, which flows through the hotel, starting with the rocking lobby bar and hang space. Definitely go for a deluxe king room or one bedroom suite with ocean view. The pool scene is casual cool, good food and drink service. Or you can also go to the private pool club, Privee, if you want more of a party scene. Or enjoy the SLS beach club. Cleo, a superb Mediterranean restaurant is off the lobby, and Carna, a signature steakhouse is just outside the lobby on the way to the casino. Easy to walk through the entire resort complex from here, and its next door to the new Baha Mar Club that features a fabulous water park, and beachfront restaurant, bar, and infinity pools.
The Grand Hyatt anchors the center of the resort with two large towers. The casino is here, along with many restaurants, the Jazz Bar with live music, a Cuban-style cigar bar, and the James Bond nightclub. Six swimming pools, spa, and some of the casual restaurants that are fun for lunch and dinner are here - try the Swimming Pig or Pizza Lab.
The Rosewood is part of the resort, but it is a sophisticated world of its own, with its own lobby, living room/library and paneled oak bar. Two Rosewood only swimming pools, private access to Nexus club, and a private beach club. That said, Rosewood guests have the complete run of the resort, and can use any and all facilities at the Grand Hyatt and SLS. The guest rooms and suites include spacious elegant design and out of this world bathrooms and amenities. And for more privacy, the villas are exquisite.
