Grand Lucayan in the Bahamas has announced the February 1, 2021 reopening of Lighthouse Pointe, the brand’s all-inclusive offering. Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and the local and national Ministries of Health, Lighthouse Pointe will resume operation of its 196 guestrooms, four dining destinations, including Portobello’s, Pizzeria Capri, Aroma Café and Waves Bar & Grill, as well as the Senses Spa & Fitness Center. Additionally, the Convention Center and wedding gazebos will be fully functional and ready to host intimate weddings and small groups.
To help safeguard both guests and staff members, Grand Lucayan implemented advanced safety protocols and best practices in response to COVID-19. Upon returning, all staff members will be administered daily temperature checks, required to complete extensive trainings on precautions and preparedness, and will wear personal protective equipment while on-site. In addition, social distancing guidelines and signage will be established throughout the property, touchless hand sanitizing stations will be readily available and public spaces will frequently be disinfected.
Guests of Lighthouse Pointe at Grand Lucayan can enjoy "crowd-free" amenities, it says, including access to the progressive fitness facilities, the 25,000-square-foot Senses Spa and 18-hole championship Reef Course. In addition, the property presents visitors with easy access to a myriad of outdoor excursions, from biking along historic trails and birdwatching at the nearby Rand Nature Centre, to horseback riding along the shoreline or fishing in one of the world’s top sport fishing regions.
Known as “The Jewel of Grand Bahama Island,” Port Lucaya Marketplace, the largest open-air shopping, dining and entertainment facility in the Bahamas, is just a short walk from the property. Meanwhile, the nearby Underwater Explorers Society (UNEXSO) offers adventure travelers and eco-tourists a variety of expeditions, including informative dolphin encounters, shark feeding and cave dives in the extensive labyrinth of submerged tunnels at Lucayan National Park.
The resort has been closed for 11 months due to the coronavirus.
