Rosewood, SLS Baha Mar Resorts to Reopen in Nassau

Two major resorts in Nassau are reopening their doors this week.

The Rosewood Baha Mar and SLS Baha Mar resorts, both set on Nassau’s Cable Beach, will both be reopening on March 4. The 299-room SLS Baha Mar is one of just two SLS hotels in the Caribbean, along with the newly-opened SLS Cancun.

Rosewood Baha Mar
The 237-room Rosewood Baha Mar is one of just three open Rosewood resorts in the Caribbean, including Rosewood Mayakoba and Rosewood Little Dix Bay in the British Virgin Islands. (A fourth, Rosewood Le Guanahani in St Barth, will likely make its debut later this year).

The relaunch of the two Nassau resorts will complete the reopening of the Baha Mar megaresort; the complex’s largest property, the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, officially relaunched in December 2020.

SLS Baha Mar
The vast majority of the property’s amenities and attractions are open, from its massive casino to the Jack Nicklaus-designed Royal Blue golf course.

The Bahamas is open for tourism; you can find more on the country’s travel protocols for visitors here. The Baha Mar is providing testing for all travelers on site. -CJ

Travel agencies, cruise lines and airlines gear up for rebound in bookings

“Many people are already actively planning their next big trip,” said one travel expert. “And it is not too early to book for 2022, especially with trip protection.”

As the pace of Covid-19 vaccinations is ramping up, so is consumer confidence — and with it, a surge in travel bookings for later this year and for 2022.

“Many travelers are feeling optimistic that they will be able to vacation abroad this year. Many people are already actively planning their next big trip — even for trips more than four months out,” said Shibani Walia, senior research analyst at Tripadvisor.

TSA: Mask violators face $250 fine, up to $1,500 for repeat offenders

Violators of the federal transportation face mask requirement face a $250 fine that increases for subsequent violations, the Transportation Security Administration said Friday.

The fine can rise up to $1,500 for repeated violations. “Based on substantial aggravating or mitigating factors, TSA may seek a sanction amount that falls outside these ranges,” the agency said. The penalties may be in addition to those imposed by operators.

US airlines have taken the initiative to ban passengers who do not follow the rules. Delta Air Lines said in a company memo on February 1 that it has banned about 950 people for violating its mask rule.

Are hotels open

Yes, hotels are considered essential and most are open now. Some accommodations, however, have either closed partially or closed entirely for varying amounts of time.

Can you get the coronavirus from people who were in hotel rooms previous to you?

Hotels and other accommodations should have procedures for cleaning, disinfecting and ventilating the room properly between every guest’s stay. These processes allow the accommodations to be used immediately afterwards. If these procedures are followed, there is no need to leave the room empty between guests.

What to do to minimize the risk of COVID-19 while staying at a hotel?

• Minimize use of areas that may lead to close contact (within 6 feet) with other people as much as possible.
• Consider taking the stairs. Otherwise wait to use the elevator until you can either ride alone or only with people from your household.

Which hotels allow dogs?

Pet friendly hotel chains that are dog-friendly:
·        Choice Hotels – Comfort Inn and Suites, Quality Inn, Roadway Inn, and more
·        Red Roof Inn
·        Motel 6
·        Days Inn
·        Marriott

Stay in the John and Yoko Suite

Vacation in Montreal isn’t complete if you don’t sleep in the Famous suite where John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their infamous bed-in over five decades ago. Of course, the Fairmont hotel has undergone major renovations but you can still get a hold of that historic suite and sleep in the same bed. Isn’t that surprising?

Take the Titanic trail in Halifax
