Baha Mar over 90% occupancy

Baha Mar President Graeme Davis said that the occupancy level at the resort is over 90 percent and that the trend is expected to continue into March.

On Thursday, Davis said occupancy numbers have been beyond the company’s expectations to date.

This year will mark the first full year that all of Baha Mar’s properties will be fully operational. Baha Mar’s Rosewood brand officially opened to guests last June.

Davis said occupancies will likely be record-setting. He said Baha Mar has been working hard on promoting the resort complex and helping to increase the airlift coming into the island.

According to Davis, there have been increases in airlift numbers that are “beyond double digits”.

He added that spring break, which is typically a peak travel period for The Bahamas, is expected to be busy for Baha Mar’s resorts.

“We are continuing to work hard to increase airlift. We are continuing to work hard to promote this destination,” Davis said.

On Friday, Travel and Leisure listed Baha Mar’s Rosewood as one of the best hotels in the world.

Baha Mar recently imploded the old Crystal Palace structure to make way for more family amenities. A water park is planned for the site.

Davis would not say when construction would begin.

“We’re hoping to make some announcements soon on our family amenities,” he said. “Stay tuned, we’re hoping to have some great announcements here very soon.”

He added that the site is still being cleaned up and, for the moment, “opens up some great views” for guests at Melia Nassau Beach.
