Royal Caribbean Cruises is set to open the first overwater cabanas in The Bahamas in January at its private island, CocoCay.
Coco Beach Club is being developed on CocoCay and could be officially opened by January 31, 2020.
“An exclusive retreat on Royal Caribbean’s private island destination Perfect Day at CocoCay is about to make your trip to The Bahamas even better,” noted website travelandleisure.com.
“The new Coco Beach Club on CocoCay will offer travelers unique and incredible luxury and relaxation during a stop on a Royal Caribbean cruise.”
On its website, Royal Caribbean Cruises note that its cabana experience features “unbeatable views of the horizon, overwater hammocks, freshwater showers and private slides that drop you right into the crystal-clear waters below”.
Royal Caribbean Cruises officially opened its $250 million ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay’ product at its private island in May.
“Perfect Day at CocoCay features the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool, Oasis Lagoon; and pristine, white sand beaches with crystal-clear tropical water,” noted the company in a press release on the launch of the private island destination.
Royal Caribbean International President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Bayley said the company has pushed the envelope when it comes to experiences offered as well as cruise ship design. He told the media last year that Royal Caribbean made a commitment to the Bahamian government to hire 200 Bahamians per year. Last year it fulfilled that promise. Some of those hires were to fill positions on CocoCay for the cruise line’s “Perfect Day” experience.
