The Meliá Nassau Beach, the all-inclusive resort situated on Cable Beach and immediately adjacent to the future Baha Bay waterpark opening this summer, will commence an extensive $100 million renovation. The property will close during the two-year project. A new, fully renovated resort will open in the spring 2023 following the extensive investment in virtually all areas of the property, consistent with the group’s long-term commitment to a prosperous future for the hospitality and tourism industry in The Bahamas.

“As the global travel industry continues to evolve in the midst of the global pandemic, we have decided to close the property and complete an extensive renovation of the resort over the next 24 months,” said Graeme Davis, President, CTFBM. “We are deeply thankful to the resort’s associates who have been on this long, difficult journey, and we commend their strength, contributions and
perseverance through the past 12 months. We look forward to the day when we unveil the renovated resort to distinguished and valued guests from all over the world, furthering the long-term economic health and prosperity of The Bahamas.”

The current all-inclusive resort located on Cable Beach, features 694 rooms, 32 suites, and is set on seven exquisite acres of stunning waterscape. The resort will remain closed for a complete transformation. Upgrades will commence immediately
including guestroom accommodations, common areas, restaurant and bars, outdoor spaces including three freshwater pools, and more. As construction commences, the renovations will also create approximately 150 new employment opportunities for Bahamians through the renovation.

Upon the resort’s opening in 2023, significant new employment opportunities will be created at the new resort. The improved resort is another step toward exceeding global expectations for a successful revitalization of international travel to The Bahamas.
