Rosewood Baha Mar

Nestled along the picturesque Cable Beach on Nassau in the vibrant Baha Mar enclave, the Rosewood Baha Mar offers guests an extraordinary Bahamian experience that goes beyond the typical beachfront getaway.

Note the exclusive Rosewood Beach you see in the pic above is only for Rosewood guests not shared by guests from the other 2 Baha Mar properties. Most other Baha Mar amenities are however shared.

One of the distinguishing features of this luxury haven is its commitment to immersing guests in the rich local culture. Through a thoughtfully curated selection of experiences, the resort encourages travelers to explore and embrace island life beyond the confines of all-inclusive resorts.
