Everything You Need to Know About the Baha Mar Wedding Venue

Comprised of three luxurious resorts, spread out over a 100-acre oceanfront property that includes a myriad of outdoor and indoor wedding destination spots, the Baha Mar wedding venue is growing in popularity among locals and foreigners alike.

Just a quick 12-minute car ride from the Lynden International Airport, the Nassau, Bahamas wedding venue is the newest on the island of New Providence. The resorts are conveniently located near downtown Nassau. Additionally, downtown teems with plenty of attractions, sightseeing opportunities, and cultural immersion.

When building the Baha Mar wedding venue, one thing was mandatory from start to finish: luxurious details and finishes. The Baha Mar, for example, is home to an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, the Caribbean’s largest casino, a flagship ESPA spa, and a plethora of restaurants, lounges, and luxury, along with some of the best shopping in the world. For those considering a wedding experience unlike any other, the Baha Mar is a utopian community accessible to everyone today.

Another key point is that The Baha Mar isn’t just one singular wedding venue. It has three different components that provide versatility and various ambiances per couple. For those interested in having a wedding at the Baha Mar, they can consider SLS, Grand Hyatt, and the Rosewood.

As a matter of fact, let’s look at each option with more clarity.
