The newly-opened Grand Hyatt Baha Mar has named Scott Allen as general manager. Widely known and respected within the Hyatt family, Allen brings 28 years of experience and leadership to the 1,800-room resort on Nassau’s famed Cable Beach. The oceanfront property is the first hotel to open as part of the expansive Baha Mar Resort.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar features multiple F&B outlets, seven multi-level pools with various water features ranging from a sea-life sanctuary filled with adopted nurse sharks, stingrays and tropical fish; ESPA spa and fitness center; the Caribbean’s largest casino; state-of-the-art nightly fountain and light shows; Royal Blue, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Course; Peter Burwash-managed Racquet Club and luxury retail shops.
“As the first resort to welcome guests to the highly-distinguished Baha Mar Resort, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar sets the stage for an unforgettable Caribbean vacation,” said Allen. “The property is a significant addition to the destination and the Hyatt portfolio of celebrated hotels. We look forward to creating everlasting memories for visitors to the Bahamas with gorgeous beaches, global cuisine and world-class hospitality.”
Allen manages a team of associates and oversees more than 20 food and beverage outlets as well as Grand Hyatt’s signature Grand Club and the Baha Mar Convention Center, one of the largest meeting and convention spaces in the Caribbean, with 200,000 square feet of flexible, indoor and outdoor meeting space.
