Whether you are in love, recently engaged, planning your wedding or considering a locale for your honeymoon, the Bahamas is a beautiful place to celebrate romance. Comprised of 700 islands spanning over 100,000 square miles of ocean, the archipelago called The Bahamas is a most enchanting ecological paradise. Its capital Nassau, located on New Providence, is the home of the Baha Mar, the perfect place to celebrate love.
Since its progressive opening in 2017, the $4.2 billion luxury resort development (comprised of Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood) has established itself as one of the most desirable destinations in the Caribbean for proposals, bachelorette parties, destination weddings and honeymoons.

The flamingo is the national bird of the Bahamas. These beautiful birds can be enjoyed through special programs overseen by the property’s CFO, Chief Flamingo Officer. Guests can Meet and Greet the flamingos, take a yoga class with the birds and even have them walk you down the aisle or hang out with your wedding guests.

Committed to the Community
The Baha Mar Foundation is spearheading hurricane relief efforts to assist those in Grand Bahama and The Abacos by providing food, shelter and medicine. Those staying at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar can participate in Baha Mar’s “Pack with Love” program, which encourages vacationers to bring an item to share with those affected by Hurricane Dorian. Visitors are able to bring donations to shelters directly or simply drop items off at the resort.
