Sun, sand and the clear blue ocean, how can you not daydream of these destinations especially with our current weather conditions! Well the Bahamas Ministry of Finance has made that dream a little closer to reality by reducing their VAT from 10% to 7.5% for hotel rooms. This is all to push Bahamas as a value for money destination. With all the building going on in Nassau, it has made a great destination even better!
Nassau is probably the most popular of the Bahamas islands. It is located just south of Florida and is a quick, easy flight from most major Canadian gateways. Nassau has some newly opened exciting hotel, one complex nicknamed the ‘Bahamian Riviera’ which will house a total of 5 resorts, offering a combined 2,900 hotel rooms, a massive casino, an 18-hole, 72 par Nack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, a spa, a dozen plus pools, and to top it off – a 200,000 square foot convention centre! Each of the 5 hotels (Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood Baha Mar, Mondrian Baha Mar, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar and Melia Baha Mar) are unique in their own way and promise to offer something for everyone!
Nassau is a trusted destination and it does have some exciting new things going on that are sure to interest people!
