GRAND BAHAMA, BAHAMAS — The Grand Lucayan’s Lighthouse Pointe will reopen on March 25 with a focus on domestic tourism, the property has announced in a press release.

It was originally set to reopen on February 1, along with four of its restaurants, its spa and fitness center and its convention center, according to a statement issued in December.

In a new statement issued today, property representatives did not specify what caused the delay but said Lighthouse Pointe is “delighted” to welcome guests back.

“Grand Lucayan, the award-winning resort offering guests an authentic Bahamian experience, proudly announces the March 25, 2021 reopening of Lighthouse Pointe, the brand’s all-inclusive offering,” the statement read.

It added: “Special promotions geared toward domestic tourism, such as golf packages, weekend getaways and, ‘staycations’ for residents of Nassau, the Family Islands and locals, will be available.”

The Grand Lucayan reiterated its COVID-19 mitigation strategy, outlining a policy of temperature checks, social distancing and hand sanitization to be enforced for staff and guests, among other measures.

“Upon returning, all staff members will be administered daily temperature checks, required to be tested weekly and to complete extensive trainings on precautions and preparedness, and will wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while on-site,” the statement continued.

“In addition, social distancing guidelines and signage will be established throughout the property, touchless hand sanitizing stations will be readily available and public spaces will frequently be disinfected.

“Guests of Lighthouse Pointe at Grand Lucayan enjoy exceptional crowd-free amenities, including access to its progressive fitness facilities and 18-holes of championship golf at The Reef Course, acclaimed as one of the world’s ‘Top 100’ golf courses.

“In addition, the property presents visitors with easy access to a myriad of fresh air excursions, from biking along historic trails and birdwatching at the nearby Rand Nature Centre, to horseback riding along the sparkling shoreline or fishing in one of the world’s top sport fishing regions.

“Known as ‘The Jewel of Grand Bahama Island’, Port Lucaya Marketplace, the largest shopping, dining and entertainment open-air facility in The Bahamas, lies just a short walk from the property and presents cultural consumers with an endless supply of specialty stores, restaurants and bars, while the nearby Underwater Explorers Society (UNEXSO) offers adventure travelers and eco-tourists a variety of expeditions, including informative dolphin encounters, thrilling shark feeding and cave dives in the extensive labyrinth of submerged tunnels at Lucayan National Park.”
