Nassau, Bahamas - Baha Mar has been rated one of the top ten destinations in the world to visit in 2015 by CNN Travel, as a new resort making a huge impact on luxury travel in the region.

The $3.5 billion luxury gaming resort, according to CNN Travel, is “expected to send ripples across the Caribbean” when it opens in Spring 2015 with a grand gala produced by music and entertainment icons Jamie King and Emilio Estefan.

Baha Mar is the only Caribbean resort to land a spot among the top ten destinations of 2015, ranking alongside other breathtaking locations including Milan and Abu Dhabi.

Offering four distinct luxury hotel brands – Rosewood at Baha Mar, Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar, SLS LUX at Baha Mar, and the crown jewel, the Baha Mar Casino and Hotel, along with a renovated Meliá property, Baha Mar has also made the list of ’22 don’t-miss travel destinations for 2015’, according to the New York Post.

The new ‘Bahamian Riviera’ shared this listing with other luxury properties around the globe, including Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina in Hawaii, The Ritz Paris, Park Hyatt Zanzibar and Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain in China.

According to the Post, when Baha Mar opens, “their wealth of 2,200 rooms will offer a variety of price points and experiences, but the hotels are just the tip of the iceberg.”

Accolades for Baha Mar have also poured in from Forbes Travel Guide, which hails the luxury property as “one of the most impressive resorts in the Caribbean.”

Paul V. Pusateri, Baha Mar Chief Operating Officer said, “Baha Mar is proud to be ranked as one of the must-visit destinations for 2015. We are working to ensure that we provide guests with unforgettable experiences and world-class service that will rival the best resorts in the world and keep people coming back to The Bahamas for years to come.”
