These offer complete luxury to you and your guests so your wedding will feel like a real tropical getaway that pampers you from beginning to end. And with that comes excellent food, a staff eager to serve, and amenities that are exceptional.
When you want the wedding everyone will be talking about, these are the resorts you’ll want on your list. Take a look at what these all-inclusive resorts in The Bahamas have to offer for your upcoming wedding.
Rosewood Baha Mar
As you enter the Rosewood Baha Mar, one thing is clear: you’re in for a truly luxurious experience here during your stay at this family-friendly resort. And the best part is that you won’t have to wait long to enjoy it because Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) is located approximately six from Rosewood Baha Mar making it about a 15-minute ride to the resort.
There are two pools here: the Cabana Pool and the Lagoon Pool. The tri-level Cabana pool is in the grand courtyard and offers a more serene experience where you can relax in their comfortable loungers for some down time. The Lagoon Pool is closer to the beach and offers a livelier environment for family-friendly games. There’s also a hidden whirlpool nearby among the bamboo trees that offers a quiet sanctuary for guests.
Stop by The Library to enjoy Folklore Afternoon Tea, a tea time with a Bahamian-inspired twist. You’ll find scones with clotted cream and jams, finger sandwiches with smoked salmon, and cake-based pastries. Don’t forget to try local bush teas, tea-based cocktails, and delectable desserts inspired by age-old tales of the Lusca, Chickchanie, and Anansi.
Families will love checking out the Mini Blue, a professionally-inspired 18-hole course. Visit the Wildlife Sanctuary to watch and learn about nurse sharks, stingrays, green sea turtles, and Caribbean fish. They even offer Animal Feeding & Touch Tank Experiences that bring you even closer to these incredible creatures.
Stop by The Kitchen for cooking classes and live demos as you learn culinary techniques and recipes that will bring your family together and boost your cooking skills. And for children, they offer the Rosewood Explorers Club, a specialized clubhouse with programs that aim to inspire creativity and curiosity for kids.
One of the most interesting experiences you’ll want to try is Flamingo Cay, a habitat for these unique local birds. You’ll learn all about them from the expert keepers and you can watch them flaunt their beautiful feathers during their twice-daily parade. They even have a flamingo yoga session where you can do your daily practice in the company of these stunning birds.
Enjoy butler service in their one-bedroom suites, specialty suites and villas. Take in a delicious meal with 24-hour in-room dining or try one of the four restaurants on the property. In addition, they offer light meals by the pool and beach.
A stay here wouldn’t be complete with a visit to Sense spa. We love that they focus on using sustainable local ingredients that have wellness benefits. That means you could stop by for an Arawak Body-Balance treatment that aims to strengthen the immune system and offer relief of various illnesses. Or, you could try the Intuitive Therapy massage that uses customized massage techniques and locally source aromatherapy oils.
You could take in a moment to get a therapeutic skincare treatment or even a foot bath and body scrub perfumed with fig, bergamot, rose and gently rinsed with hot fragrant towels. You’ll also find a salon here that offers a full menu of beauty services. And those are just some of the many options available on their menu.
When it comes to weddings, they offer 16 venue options including The Grand Salon which has space for up to 300 guests for receptions, the Rosewood Garden and Rosewood Beach. They offer dedicated wedding specialists, a mouth-watering catering menu and the flexibility to design your wedding your way with ample space for all of your wedding events.
SLS Baha Mar
SLS Baha Mar recently earned Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Award” and the Conde Nast Reader’s Choice Award for good reason. This luxury resort offers both adventure and relaxation, elegance and down-to-earth charm, and top-level service from its excellent staff. This resort offers something for everyone with an almost endless list of things to do.
There are 14 dining options on site that all have one goal: provide a 5-star experience with exceptional service, décor and fresh ingredients. We love that children ages 0-5 can eat free at 4 of the restaurants here.
Like the two other resorts at Baha Mar (Rosewood and Grand Hyatt), you’ll have access to all that Baha Mar offers including the flamingo habitat, Flamingo Cay, and fun animal counters at The Sanctuary.
You can visit Baha Bay next door, the incredible beachfront waterpark that is set on 15 acres. Or, stop by Baha Bay Beach Club which is nestled among palm trees and soft sands where you can enjoy both the pool and some beach time under the warm Bahamian sun.
You can also try your luck at the Baha Ma Casino, the Caribbean’s largest casino offering 18 different types of table games, over 1,000 slot machines.
When it’s time to enjoy the beach, you’ll love that they offer a complimentary rental program offering stand-up paddleboards, single and double kayaks, water hammocks, floating lounges, and personal floats. Take a walk on the warm sands of Cable Beach and enjoy the views of ocean with its multiple shades of turquoise.
Younger guests will enjoy their time at the Baha Mar Kids Club for younger guests ages 3 to 12. From arts and crafts to a a play room filled with fun toys and activites for toddlers your little ones will find excitement at every turn.
Don’t forget to see The Theater which has multi-media experiences like interactive game shows, big-screen video gaming, glow-in-the-dark parties, movie nights and more.
We recommend a trip to ESPA spa which hovers above pristine white-sands and the gorgeous turquoise waters. You’ll find a menu full of massages and facials, mani-pedis, and complete body treatments for women, men, and teens.
Weddings here offer you and your guests luxury service and two beautiful venues for larger weddings. Studios Ballroom is perfect for your reception and has space for up to 200 people. The Rooftop Pavilion also has space for 200 people and is perfect for an outdoor ceremony. They offer bespoke menus here for events which means you’ll easily be able to have the foods you love that will have high-quality, fresh ingredients.
