Condo hotel and other amenities on track for November 1 opening
NASSAU, BAHAMAS- A major Grand Bahama resort yesterday announced the reopening of its marina after more than a month of clean up and restoration in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.
In a statement, Old Bahama Bay president John MacDonald said: “It has been a month that has truly shown the strength of our staff and stakeholders here at Old Bahama Bay. Everyone worked together to meet today’s goal. In addition to hurricane clean up, reinstallation of the marina power pedestals and re-coating the docks, Old Bahama Bay has been ground zero for the distribution of humanitarian supplies.
He added: “With over one million pounds (600 tons) of supplies being delivered and distributed throughout the islands, our organizational skills were put to task and I am proud to say that throughout all of this, we have shined.”
In addition to the reopening of the marina, the resort is expected to open Teasers Beach Side Bar & Grill, Banana Hammocks Harbour Side Bar and the beachside pool at full capacity today.
Work is being carried out to reopen the condominium hotel, Dockside Restaurant and Bar, gym, and massage room along with all other amenities as planned on November 1.
OBB reported “minimal damage” with no saltwater intrusion into the condos following Dorian.
“The majority of the damage occurred to the grounds and the foliage,” MacDonald said in a previous statement.
He added: “No damage claims will be made with our insurance carrier as there simply is not enough damage to come close to our deductible.”
