MIAMI & MCLEAN, Va - Thursday, March 5th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE) - Hilton Worldwide and Resorts World Bimini, the world’s first cruise destination resort, have announced the newest luxury lifestyle hotel in the Bahamas will fly the Hilton Hotels & Resorts flag. The newly-built luxury marina hotel, slated to have its official grand opening at Resorts World Bimini in the Bahamas this summer, will operate as Hilton at Resorts World Bimini, and marks Hilton Worldwide’s second hotel in the Bahamas.
“With its white sand beaches, turquoise water and world-class casino, Hilton at Resorts World Bimini will be a premier destination in itself and an exciting addition to our portfolio of more than 550 hotels worldwide,” said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. “Our agreement with Resorts at World Bimini is an excellent example of our commitment to growth in one of the region’s key leisure destinations.”
The five-story marina hotel will be part of the 750-acre Resorts World Bimini property in the Bahamas. Designed with the purpose of seamlessly integrating the beauty of surrounding Bimini Bay, the first-level common areas will bring the outdoors in with a river pool that spans the entire eastern face of the building.
“We are proud to have one of the most iconic brands in the industry, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, as the flag for our new hotel,” said Ed Farrell, president, Resorts World Bimini. “The addition of a marina hotel on the property – coupled with enhancements to Bimini’s airport and the creation of a new cruise ship pier – has enabled us to attract even more guests from around the world.”
Resorts World Bimini is an expansive resort that extends far beyond the walls of Hilton at Resorts World Bimini. Located on North Bimini Island in the Bahamas, it is just 50 miles off of the South Florida coast. The resort’s dedicated cruise ship, Bimini SuperFast, offers two- and three-night cruises from Port Miami on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The ship departs at 7 p.m. on Sunday, returning to Port Miami on Wednesday at 1 p.m. The same time schedule follows for Wednesday and Friday cruises. Passengers have a choice of staying in cabins onboard Bimini SuperFast or in one- or two-bedroom condos at Resorts World Bimini.
Guests at Resorts World Bimini can enjoy multiple restaurants and bars, trendy boutiques, water sports and a world class casino – the first in the world with water and marina views. The 10,000-square-foot casino features live-action table gaming such as Roulette, Craps, Blackjack and Baccarat, as well as the latest Slots and a full service Sports Book. The property also boasts the largest marina complex in the Bahamas with two marinas – Fisherman’s Village Marina (136 slips) and the Mega Yacht Marina (94 slips) – conveniently located at the center of the resort.
Prior to the official grand opening this summer, guestrooms will be complete and the hotel will be bookable on www.hilton.com for arrivals beginning on March 5, 2015. At this time, guests may also begin earning and redeeming Hilton HHonors® points.
