Baha Mar, the 1,000-acre resort complex on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas, is to be expanded with the development of a new waterpark.
The $300m waterpark project will be built on a 14-acre site, which was formerly home to the Wyndham resort and the Crystal Palace casino, both of which have now been demolished. As well as a waterpark, the development will feature enhancements to the beach and new food and drink facilities at Long Cay, Baha Mar’s private 15-acre island.
Graeme Davies, Baha Mar’s president, said that a Bahamian company has been instructed to conduct the construction of the pools for the waterpark. The new waterpark is due to be completed in the next 1 – 2 years. The project is expected to create around 500 permanent and direct jobs and 1,000 indirect jobs.
