Baha Mar Resorts Ltd., together with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. today marked the official opening of the new Sheraton Cable Beach Resort in Nassau, The Bahamas with a flag-raising ceremony. Situated on a 1,000-foot stretch of Nassau’s most spectacular white sand beach, The Sheraton Cable Beach Resort is expected to play an instrumental role in boosting tourism in Nassau, particularly in the Cable Beach area, which is experiencing a surge in new investment and development.

Managed by Starwood Hotels, Sheraton Cable Beach Resort is set on seven exquisite acres of stunning waterscape, including three freshwater pools with flowing waterfalls, a swim-up bar and oversized Jacuzzis nestled among tropical landscaping. Owned by Baha Mar Resorts Ltd., the warm, inviting resort will offer a unique and expansive set of guest offerings and amenities that will be shared with those of the neighboring Wyndham Nassau Resort.

“We welcome Starwood, Sheraton and its guests to Nassau, The Bahamas,” said Don Robinson, President of Baha Mar Resorts, Ltd. “Starwood’s premium product and hospitality expertise will complement our efforts to provide our resort guests with the highest standard of service as they enjoy cross- property amenities at both of our Cable Beach Resorts properties - the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino and now the all-new Sheraton Cable Beach Resort.”

Guests of The Sheraton Cable Beach Resort will be welcomed to a Bahamian paradise from the moment they walk in the door. Immediately putting visitors at ease, Sheraton Cable Beach Resort offers a complete vacation experience. While staying at Sheraton Cable Beach Resort, guests are encouraged to make connections in a warm, relaxed island setting.

“As guests lounge by the pool or stroll across the grounds of Sheraton Cable Beach Resort, they will appreciate not only the resort’s breathtaking beauty, but also the warmth and comfort Sheraton brings to this vacation paradise through its wide range of signature services designed to give guests a sense of true belonging,” said Hoyt Harper, senior vice president, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts. “As the icon of the hospitality industry, Sheraton is delighted to participate in the renaissance of the island’s famous Cable Beach area.”
