Baha Mar, Nassau, The Bahamas
Rosewood at Baha Mar
What it is
A 237-room ultra-luxe resort on 3,000 private feet of Cable Beach’s immaculate white sand.
What it isn't
Lacking anything. Amenities include a Rosewood Spa focused on age-old Bahamian remedies, tri-level quiet pool and seafront lagoon, and 24-hour gym.
What we think
Most Caribbean resorts are, if we’re being honest, a little hokey. There’s the swim-up bar, the bottomless buffet, the color palette as garish as a tropical shirt. Not so Rosewood Baha Mar, which is set within the famed new 1,000-acre resort complex. Here, interiors would pamper any critical urbanite; rooms are huge (starting at 485-square-feet) and outfitted in soft Caribbean neutrals, with decidedly OTT (over the top) comforts: a rain shower and soaking tub, welcome refreshments, and 60-square-foot private balcony ideal for sipping a jolt of Nespresso in your robe and slippers. Four on-property restaurants mean you don’t have to explore other parts of Baha Mar’s campus for an on-point meal; we particularly recommend Commonwealth, where the chef’s tasting menu might include East African mango and cucumber salad and crispy monkfish with saffron sabayon.
You're here because
You’re not a planner, and blessedly, Rosewood Baha Mar has a fleet of activities to wow everyone in your party, from tennis on Har-Tru clay or grass courts to sea turtle and nurse shark feeding. You read that right.
After a day on the sand, you’re wiped, and all too happy to duck into The Library—exactly as calming as it sounds. Curled up in the corner on a leather wingback chair under a towering fig tree, you order a bit of Black River caviar and a glass of 2008 Veuve Clicquot. What is vacation for, if not for this?
