Expected to open in December 2014, the 1,000-acre Baha Mar resort development in Nassau, on the Bahamian island of New Providence, will comprise four hotels with some 2,200 hotel rooms and 284 residences along 3,000 feet of white-sand beach. The forthcoming residences, which began selling in late June, offer buyers a range of options for owning a slice of paradise.

At the western edge of the development, the modern, 300-room Mondrian hotel will front the beach as a long, narrow rectangle. The structure will include 107 residences with a contemporary Bahamian style geared toward younger buyers. Fully furnished, the one- to three-bedroom residences will range from 829 square feet to 2,723 square feet. Prices start at $1.6 million.

Separated from the Mondrian by a series of swimming pools and landscaped gardens, the Rosewood at Baha Mar has 200 rooms and offers buyers the most luxurious real estate options at the development. The 92 colonial-style residences, with light interiors and dark wood trim, will be located throughout the property and will range from 915-square-foot, one-bedroom units to 6,000-square-foot, four-bedroom beach villas with private pools. Prices range from $2 million to $15 million.

Set back from the beach, the Grand Hyatt will cater to families and larger groups with its convention center and art gallery, as well as its 700 hotel rooms. Its 85 residences start at $1.5 million and will range from 893-square-foot, one-bedroom units to 2,378-square-foot, three-bedroom units, and feature contemporary lines with white linens, chrome fixtures, and wood-grain floors.

The Grand Hyatt will be adjacent to the project’s namesake hotel, the Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, which will feature a 100,000-square-foot casino and a 30,000-square-foot Espa destination spa.
