Take four decrepit hotels on a beautiful stretch of beach. Gut them. Tear them apart and start from scratch. Build three new swimming pools and a lap pool. Add several restaurants and lounges. Give each of the areas a different feel and attitude. Then import some of the finest management talent in the hospitality industry, train the local staff to engage with the guests, open a world-class spa, develop two exquisite golf courses with a world-renowned pro and golf school, and stir. Bake the mixture under the beautiful Bahamian sun, and you have:
Located at Port Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island, Our Lucaya combines the best of everything under one umbrella resort. With nearly 1,400 rooms and suites, 370+ acres (including 7.5 acres of beach) and 14 restaurants and lounges, it's the largest in the Caribbean and Bahamas region. It also offers Senses Spa, a casino (opening December, 2001), and the Butch Harmon School of Golf. A family vacation venue with meals included spans one end of the resort, while a quiet and elegant four-story retreat is located at the opposite end. Between these two sections is a highrise for the more active crowd and a two-story row of luxurious beachfront suites for those who want the experience of pampered grandeur.
After check-in at the beautiful, cool, gracious Manor House, the entire resort is available to the guests.
