You’ve likely heard the slogan, “It’s Better in The Bahamas,” and it will soon be better with another resort (Lighthouse Pointe) reopening … and a Bahama Mama.
Lighthouse Pointe will be reopening just shy of being closed for nearly a year. Yes, that’s quite a long time and they’re prepared to reopen following the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and the Ministries of Health (MOH).
While we’re on the subject of safety and protocols, it’s also important to note that all staff members will be administered daily temperature checks, must complete extensive trainings on precautions and preparedness, and they will wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) while on-site.
Social distancing guidelines and signage will be all around the resort as well as touchless hand sanitizing stations. Public spaces will also be disinfected.
Now, let’s get to the reasons why we want to travel again – adventure, relaxation, and creating new memories (to name a few)!
Lighthouse Pointe – The Why:
This serene resort only has 196 rooms, so it isn’t a mega resort, which means social distancing is naturally possible.
We could share more about the rooms and the restaurants, but there’s so much to enjoy around the resort to make up for the adventures missed out on in 2020.
First, Senses Spa (spacious at 25,000 sq. ft.) for blissful body treatments and relaxation. And, there are four dining venues (had to mention it).
For creating memories and enjoying travel again:
- The Reef Course, one of the world’s “Top 100” golf courses – did I mention Unlimited Golf!
- Fully equipped fitness center
- Lighthouse Pointe has certified instructors offering group instruction in Spinning, Step Aerobics, Tae Bo, Pilates, several Yoga practices, Bootilicous, Body Blitz and kickboxing
- Immerse in nature with biking along historical trails, birdwatching at Rand Nature Center
- Horseback Riding on the beach (yes, please!)
- Sport Fishing (The Bahamas is known for this!)
- Cave diving through UNEXSO (Underwater Explorers Society) at Lucayan National Park‘s labyrinth of tunnels (one of the largest underwater cave systems in the world)
- Dolphin encounters and shark feeding
This affordable all-inclusive resort is also reopening with rates starting at $220.00 per person, per night.
If you enjoy shopping (thinking Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire), you’ll be happy to know you’re a short walk away from Port Lucaya Marketplace, known as The Jewel of Grand Bahama Island.
You’ll, of course, want to check on any updated restrictions on social distancing as we head into 2021. Updates can be found with the Office of the Prime Minister.
