Kamalame Cay expands, adds bespoke experience through Atlantis partnership

The ultra-luxurious, low-density Kamalame Cay continues its expansion, with nine villas under construction and a partnership with Atlantis and Coco Bahama Seaplanes that allows Atlantis guests to be whisked off to Kamalame Cay for a 24-hour stay, and vice versa, one of the cay’s owners Michael King told Guardian Business yesterday.

Atlantis’ package to Kamalame Cay is available through the resort’s Sapphire Services, which it describes as “bespoke concierge experiences”.

Atlantis’ President and Managing Director Audrey Oswell explained that there is “no request too grand” for Sapphire Services to execute.

“All guests of Atlantis have access to Sapphire Services,” Oswell said.

“Itineraries range to accommodate any budget or group size, ensuring all visitors have easy access to experience the vast beauty and culture that The Bahamas offers.

“This week marks the inaugural flight to Kamalame Cay. David Hew and Michael King-Hew are incredible partners and, like Atlantis, are both stewards of the environment and provide the utmost authentic Bahamian hospitality.

“Guests will be chauffeured from Atlantis to Odyssey Aviation for this itinerary and fly with Coco Bahama Air. In-flight, travelers will be treated to a spectacular overwater sightseeing tour of the Andros Great Barrier Reef and vast oceanic panoramas. In addition, there is a series of offerings to choose from to explore Andros island from land and sea, plus a special can’t miss ‘sea-to-table’ lunch under the palapa to round out the day.

“Guests will return to Odyssey Nassau in the late afternoon. Additional Atlantis, Sapphire Services and Coco Bahama Air excursions will include Spanish Wells and Harbour Island later this year.”

King explained that Kamalame Cay and Atlantis have had a long relationship of hosting each other’s guests.

Now the formalized service with Coco Bahama adds an almost door-to-door service when the sea plane arrives at Kamalame Cay’s beach.

“Our guests love the adventure of going to Atlantis for 24 hours and their guests love to come here for 24 hours, so it became like brother and sister where you’re completely different but you have the same parents, which is a simple love for The Bahamas,” said King.

King said people’s interest in low-density properties like Kamalame Cay continues to grow, which is the reason the company continues to add villas.

“We’re continuing to build. We build villas, some of which we sell, some of which we retain,” he said.

“We have nine buildings under construction right now and it’s truly a reflection of people gravitating to The Bahamas.

“The way we view work and play has changed post-pandemic. People, they don’t have to be stuck to a desk anymore like they were, now they can do it from almost anywhere. And if you’re going to live somewhere, The Bahamas, it’s a pretty great place to live.”
