Baha Mar, Atlantis report strong occupancies for Easter weekend at 90%

Both Baha Mar and Atlantis reported strong occupancies for the Easter weekend at 90 percent; both properties have also introduced events gauged at attracting large numbers of tourists in the summer months, Director of Public Relations at Baha Mar Vanessa Christie and Atlantis Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ed Fields told Guardian Business yesterday.

To drive local and foreign interest, Atlantis is hosting a spring festival called Twilight Electric, that celebrates Bahamian culture and cuisine “in a whimsical”and “vibrant” way, according to an Atlantis press statement.

“Further solidifying its position as a noteworthy destination for travelers wanting it all, Atlantis, Paradise Island is proud to announce the world premiere of ‘Showtime at the Pink Flamingo’, developed in partnership with the creative masterminds behind international sensations Blanc de Blanc and Limbo,” the release notes.

“This thrilling new show will be the centerpiece of the resort’s swanky spring festival, Twilight Electric. Every Wednesday through Sunday, beginning Saturday, April 13, Atlantis guests and other adventure-seeking visitors to Nassau and Paradise Island can expect to see and experience the unexpected, as they enter a whimsical and vibrant entertainment playground under the stars, along the magnificent Nassau Harbour. The festival offers entertainment for visitors of every age and pays homage to the cultural landscape of The Bahamas, its authentic cuisine, deep-rooted artistry and soul-stirring music.”

Baha Mar said bookings have continued to exceed its expectations across its three properties, as the resort celebrated its second anniversary over the weekend.

“As our hotel brands greatly differ in size and appeal to a variety of travelers, we are fortunate to report occupancy in the 90 percent range for SLS, Grand Hyatt and Rosewood,” said Christie.

“We are thrilled about the exceptional response received from international guests, as well as the local community.

“The festive season of 2018, as well as the first quarter of 2019 have been extremely successful for the resort and the trend continues straight into the summer months. Events such as the global wedding summit Engage and the Baha Mar Showdown in June are adding additional layers of brand awareness and exposure on an international level, and contribute to a promising outlook for the remainder of the year.”

Both properties have benefitted from the record number of stopover visitors that have come to The Bahamas between 2018 and 2019.
