NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Resorts World Bimini said that it has made the ‘difficult decision’ to temporarily suspend its operations effective July 25.

The resort announced the closure in a notice on its website.

“As you are aware we are in unsettling times due to COVID-19,” it read.

“Therefore, out of respect for the concerns of the Bahamas Prime Minister, Resorts World Bimini has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend operations effective July 25, 2020.”

RWB added: “As we continue to closely monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation both domestically and abroad, our team is monitoring all advisories and guidelines from the Bahamas Ministry of Health and US Centre for Disease Control. Please know that during these times, we are committed to providing our future guests with a safe, friendly, welcoming environment that you have come to expect from Resorts World Bimini.”

The resort apologized to its guests who were looking forward to arriving in the coming weeks.

The resort had reopened earlier this month after announcing a temporary closure back in March.

As of yesterday, there were 342 cases of the virus in the country.

There were 21 confirmed cases in Bimini.


We will survive covid19 with ease but we can not survive on empty pockets. This is a tragedy for hundreds of workers. I have know so many people who have survived the Corona Virus. I myself has had it twice. And got over it twice. Now I am out of a job. This is making absolutely no sense. We are driving our economy into ruins because of the decisions made by one man. They are testing asymptomatic people who already have antibodies. Meaning that we are developing an immunity to the worse effects of the virus. Bahamians you are being led to the slaughter. Our economy will crash hard!! Our taxes WILL rise because we will have to pay the bill somehow.
