Slated to arise nearly in the shadow of Atlantis on the Bahamas' Paradise Island -- and about the only project big enough to overshadow the Atlantis mega-resort -- the $3.5-billion Baha Mar project will open in 2014 and eventually include multiple upscale hotels as well as a mega casino and a private island.

The huge new destination resort will arise on 1,000 acres on Nassau's fabled but somewhat faded Cable Beach area. The project -- billed as the largest destination resort in the Caribbean -- will include the Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, The 300-room Mondrian Baha Mar (part of the Morgans Hotel Group), the 200-room Rosewood at Baha Mar, and a  700-room Grand Hyatt hotel. Most recently plans were announced to add an upscale all-inclusive resort to the complex, the 694-room Melia Baha Mar -- a makeover of the venerable Nassau Beach Resort. 

Highlights of Baha Mar include: 

  • a 200,000-square-foot convention center
  • an ESPA destination spa
  • the largest casino in the Caribbean
  • a variety of high-end residences
  • 15-minute boat excursions to the resort's private island
  • an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course
