FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND
Grand Lucayan: In line with the redevelopment programme for the second-city of The Bahamas this iconic Freeport hotel was recently purchased by the Government of The Bahamas. Grand Lucayan is situated on 7.5-acre white-sand beach and features an 18-hole championship golf course, an infinity and a lap pool, tennis courts, a spa and a selection of bars and restaurants.
Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour Expansion: Another element of the island rejuvenation is at Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour which is moving forward with plans for a new development called Grande Harbour at Old Bahama Bay Resort. The current plans include 460 luxury condos, stunning infinity pools, a lavish spa, two restaurants, athletic courts, a convention hall with venue space, a 78-slip ‘Dockaminium’ with extended dockage for mega yachts and much more. Grande Harbour will also include a community hurricane shelter for resort employees, their families and West End residents. The expansion is expected to bring to the island, roughly 900 construction jobs and full-time employment for over 300 persons.
Five-star Eco-Resort Planned for Long Island:
One of the most pristine and undeveloped islands in The Bahamas is set to receive a new luxury resort. The mixed-used Port St George will span 2.25 miles of Long Island shorefront, with 4,200 feet of shoreline on the Exuma Sound and 2,000 feet of Atlantic frontage, for a total of 882 acres. It will feature a five-star hotel and spa, along with 515 luxury residences, a 640-berth full-service marina a yacht club, a beach club and a golf course, among other amenities. The real estate offerings will include 500 condominiums and townhomes and 15 luxury villas. The project will have an eco focus, with plans to operate entirely off the grid through solar tiles and storage batteries.
Bahama House: This chic Harbour Island property located in the heart of Dunmore Town, opened last year offering 11 luxury suites for a total of just 22 guests.
Just seven minutes across the water on Eleuthera is another opening…
The Other Side: This tented establishment on Eleuthera takes ‘glamping’ to new heights. These seven tented areas receive all power from the sun, another hit with the eco-warriors. Each canopied ‘room’ is spacious and beautifully furnished, think hardwood floors and four-posters with luxurious bed-linen, not a camp bed in sight. ontheos.com
Peace & Plenty
The recently renovated 35-room hotel is now open under new ownership, SMS Lodging. The George Town property was built in 1958 and is an ideal launching pad for exploring The Exumas or taking the water taxi over the harbour to its private beach club on Stocking Island. peaceandplenty.com
