NASSAU, The Bahamas, Renovations have begun at Meliá Nassau Beach, a Meliá Hotels International resort, with phase one of the $19 million renovation plan, expected to be complete by November 2014. The resort, on Nassau’s Cable Beach, will remain open throughout the redesign, with minimal interruptions to the guest experience. Renovations throughout the entire Meliá Nassau Beach property are expected to be complete by early 2016. Meliá Nassau Beach will be the only upscale all-inclusive resort in Nassau’s multi-billion dollar luxury destination resort, Baha Mar.
Once the first phase of the redesign is complete, the Meliá Nassau Beach will boast 694 luxury guestrooms offering modern décor and a private patio or balcony. In addition, the hotel will introduce guests to THE LEVEL, a signature service by Meliá Hotels & Resorts offering exclusive experiences, select room categories, a private pool and beach area, a separate check-in area in THE LEVEL Lounge, located upstairs from the main lobby, and preferred reservations for à la carte restaurants and other activities. THE LEVEL Lounge will offer guests daily continental breakfast, newspapers, coffee and tea service, premium beverages, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres served throughout the day. THE LEVEL guests can indulge in Energy for Life activities like Body Balance – a mix of yoga and Tai Chi, or the Experiences Menu, which includes special workshops, dinners on the beach, romantic private breakfasts and in-room dining experiences.
Meliá Nassau Beach currently boasts three exceptional dining options, including Aqua, featuring Italian fare; The Market Place, an open-kitchen buffet style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner; and O’Grille, open for lunch and dinner in a casual beachside ambiance. As part of the redesign, the terrace at The Market Place will be expanded to exude a more Caribbean feel. To round out the offerings, Meliá Nassau Beach will add five signature eateries. The hotel’s fourth floor will house Cilantro, taking guests on a complete gastronomic journey, with natural textures, aromas and flavors from Mexico; Nikkei, celebrated for its exquisite fusion of Japanese, Cantonese and Peruvian cuisine, with a sushi bar and Tappan tables; and The Black Angus, a modern steakhouse featuring the finest quality prime cuts and the freshest ingredients. Additionally, upbeat gastro bar, Estavida, will act as the social hub of the hotel, offering tapas and cocktails.
Meliá Nassau Beach’s youngest guests, children between 5-12 years of age, can take advantage of the wide array of fun-filled activities offered at Kids & Co., a program offering arts and craft projects, interactive games and many more exciting adventures. The Kids & Co. facilities and amenities will be upgraded during renovations while a Kids & Co. guestroom category will also be introduced.
From the lobby to the pools and landscaping, additional, property enhancements include the transformation of the existing concierge desk into a lobby bar and a redesign of the hotel pools and outdoor landscape.
