Celebrated butcher and culinary legend Dario Cecchini opened Carna, his new Bahamas steakhouse at Baha Mar. It’s his first restaurant outside of Italy but he chose Nassau Paradise Island because “it’s paradise.”
More exciting changes are coming to the Nassau harbourfront. In March, a $250 million transformation of Nassau’s bustling port was announced. This exciting redevelopment will introduce entertainment pavilions, striking architectural features, and amenities that’ll make your disembarkment as easy and delightful as a Bahamas breeze.
The magic of a roaring carnival came to Paradise when Atlantis, Paradise Island launched its Twilight Electric Show this past spring. Not only was there a fairway of rides but their Showtime at the Pink Flamingo show offered a stunning variety show. The pop-up event was a one-of-a-kind experience for guests.
Atlantis, Paradise Island wasn’t the only hotel to offer a pop-up experience for its guests. In March, The Ocean Club, A Four Season’s Resort launched a pop-up restaurant helmed by the Michelin-starred chef of its onsite restaurant, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Spice by JG featured a free-form menu highlighting the flavors of Southeast Asian street food with dishes like charred rib eye skewers with Thai basil dipping sauce, black pepper shrimp with sun-dried pineapple and red snapper with wok-fried napa cabbage, jicama, and cucumber.
The crystal-clear waters and vibrant marine life of The Bahamas make Nassau Paradise Island a hot spot for diving enthusiasts. Nassau’s premiere diving company, Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas added another exciting dive sight to Nassau Paradise Island’s impressive underwater displays this past March when it sunk a wreck off the coast of New Providence Island. The Atlantic Breeze is a 250ft fuel tanker that now, thanks to meticulous removal of any fuels and oils, will become an artificial reef for divers—and marine life—to explore.
In June, the Baha Mar Showdown drew some of sport’s biggest names, including Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre, and Chris Paul, to the Royal Blue Golf Course for a weekend of competitive golf in Nassau Paradise Island.
