Development firm plans 2700-room resort in Nassaus Cable Beach area

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Baha Mar Development Co. disclosed plans for a 2,700-room resort project in the Cable Beach area, covering 500 beachfront acres and representing a $1.2 billion investment for the first phase.

Three existing hotels -- the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino, the Nassau Beach Hotel and the Radisson Cable Beach Resort -- will be razed to make room for a casino hotel, a convention hotel, an 18-hole golf course and retail village by early 2009.

Michael Sansbury, Baha Mar executive vice president, said the three properties will remain open for at least the next two years, and we immediately plan to improve the existing room product and restaurants.

Sansbury said plans call for a full casino makeover, a tower renovation at the Wyndham and room upgrades at the Nassau Beach.
