The Grand Lucayan on Grand Bahama Island plans to open Lighthouse Pointe, a resort-within-a-resort, late this year.

The 198-room Lighthouse Pointe, on the far end of Grand Lucayan, will be for guests who want the all-inclusive experience. Guests staying at the 542-room Grand Lucayan will be able to choose between an all-inclusive package or a room-only plan.

Lighthouse Pointe is an existing property on the Grand Lucayan site, but it has been dormant for two years and is undergoing a multimillion-dollar upgrade and renovation. New facilities will include an entertainment venue and a kids' club treehouse.

Together the two resorts will offer a total of eight restaurants, including two buffets. All-inclusive guests who dine at Churchill's, the fine-dining restaurant, must pay a surcharge.

The all-inclusive rate will start at $125 per person, per night, based on double occupancy.

"The demand from our travel agent partners and our guests for an all-inclusive offering prompted this move," said Tom Anderson, chief marketing officer. "Positioning Grand Lucayan as a hybrid resort, with both traditional and all-inclusive offerings, will drive the brand to the next level and redefine our capabilities."
