Royal Caribbean International has announced that it is moving ahead with the development of the first Royal Beach Club after receiving approval from the government of The Bahamas.
The 17-acre destination – The Royal Beach Club at Paradise Island – will be located at the western end of Paradise Island in Nassau, The Bahamas.
It will combine the island’s striking beaches with the cruise line’s signature experiences to create the ultimate beach day.
Crafted in close collaboration with the Bahamian government, the cruise line said the new project will feature a public-private partnership in which Bahamians can own up to 49% equity in the beach club.
Local businesses and entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to manage the vast majority of the experience.
According to the cruise line, the new venture will generate hundreds of jobs across its construction and long-term operation.
Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said: “The Bahamas has been a phenomenal partner since the very start when they became our first port of call more than 50 years ago.
“As we continue to bring millions of visitors to experience attractions throughout Nassau each year, The Royal Beach Club at Paradise Island is the next bold adventure in Royal Caribbean’s commitment to both increasing tourism in The Bahamas and delivering memorable vacations to our guests.”
Vacationers will be welcomed by local architecture that complements the exceptional views of The Bahamas’ turquoise-blue waters and white sand beaches.
Experiences include Bahamian fare, island-style barbecues, live music and local artisans.
More details about The Royal Beach Club at Paradise Island, set to open in 2025, will be revealed in the coming months.
