The design for the brand-new Rosewood Baha Mar creates a luxurious yet intimate atmosphere that invites guests to feel immediately relaxed, as though they have arrived at their private beachfront vacation home.
The entire resort has been designed by renowned design studio Wimberly Interiors to create a sense of community, invite conversation among new and old friends, and feel chic, elegant and distinctly Bahamian.
“We are incredibly proud of the work that Wimberly Interiors has done to create Rosewood Baha Mar’s stunning island-inspired design,” said Luigi Romaniello, the resort’s managing director.
“They have created a beautiful, effortless space wherein our guests can slow down and experience the wonders of the Bahamas and share special moments with loved ones.”
“As the jewel in the Baha Mar resort’s crown, we wanted our design for the hotel to reflect the residential quality found on Harbor Island; fresh, modern, and unmistakably Bahamian,” said Liana Hawes Young, creative director of Wimberly Interiors New York.
Set on the white sands of Nassau’s Cable Beach in The Bahamas, Rosewood Baha Mar, managed by hospitality group Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, is the effortless escape offering endless possibilities and unique experiences.
The resort’s 237 guest rooms, suites and beachfront villas epitomise Bahamian luxury, featuring architecture and interior styling reminiscent of a relaxed island estate. There four signature dining venues, private pools and a spa.
The Living Room
Guests enter through a foyer-like space and then flow seamlessly into the Living Room, which is residential in style and features multiple couches and seating areas from which guests can check in for their stays. The Living Room then flows into the Library Lounge and beyond. Within the Living Room, the walls are adorned with a bespoke mural, which has been hand-painted by the artists of SilverHill Atelier and depicts sweeping island views in the painting style of John Hussey, a local Bahamian artist.
Guests are greeted by high ceilings and two grand bookcases that expand into the lofty interior. A soothing palette of pale blues and greens are punctuated with rich textures and bold colours found throughout the fabric and art selection. Multiple seating areas inspire guests to stay, relax and lose themselves in conversation.
A mix of furnishings and finishes add to the fresh, modern design, while feeling distinctly Bahamian. The base palette is light and sophisticated, using crisp whites, grey washes and rubbed ebony finishes, to set the scene. Inspired by the spectacular views, and guided by the incredible sunsets, elegant colour punctuations provide contrast; beautiful Caribbean blues, coral, and lavender.
