Program to showcase history and heritage of The Bahamas
NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Rosewood Baha Mar yesterday unveiled Rosewood Explorers, an immersive, multi-faceted children’s program designed to inspire creativity and cultural awareness and appreciation among the upscale resort’s younger guests.
Rosewood Explorers offers unique, hands-on activities that showcase The Bahamas’ quintessential qualities and character while encouraging exploration, adventure and engagement in social responsibility, according to a press statement.
“From mingling with Nassau’s native sea creatures on a quest to become a junior marine biologist to creating delectable dishes using local ingredients and flavors, children have ample opportunity to learn about the island’s rich history, culture and heritage while creating memories that will last a lifetime,” the statement read.
Explorers was launched at the resort’s Phuket destination in 2017, and Baha Mar is now the third property to feature the program.
Luigi Romaniello, Managing Director at Rosewood Baha Mar, said: “Since its grand opening in 2018, Rosewood Baha Mar has been committed to creating opportunities for travelers of all ages to discover the best of The Bahamas, and we’re proud to reinforce the resort as an ideal destination for immersive, intergenerational travel with the launch of Rosewood Explorers.
“Not only does Rosewood Explorers allow children to play and grow with purpose, but it also affords parents with an opportunity to enjoy time to themselves with peace of mind that their kids are not only being entertained but are also learning about the world around them.”
Complimentary for children ages four to 12-years-old and exclusive to guests of Rosewood Baha Mar, Rosewood Explorers is rooted in three key approaches to activity that provide opportunities for growth and development in different yet interconnected ways: “Learn,” “Craft” and “Play.”
Each occupying a distinct zone within the program’s newly created clubhouse – a standalone, pirate ship-inspired space called the ‘Ship of Wonder’ – and further brought to life through unique programming both within the clubhouse as well as throughout the larger Baha Mar resort, the three philosophies allow children to engage with one another in the setting and style of their choice.
The statement continued: “Each individual itinerary offers an innovative take on several different areas of activity, including an exploratory excursion around the grounds, an arts and crafts session, a cooking class and a lesson on the local spirit and sensibilities of The Bahamas.
“Highlights include sojourns through the property’s Sanctuary, wherein the explorers have the opportunity to observe and interact with marine animals from turtles to stingrays to sharks while learning about conservation and sustainability, as well as visits to the aviary to become bird trainers for the day, feeding and mingling with flamingos and other exotic species.
It added: “Additional activities developed to create a deeper understanding of Bahamian culture include a virtual tour across the archipelago to discover the discerning qualities of each individual island and traditional “Junkanoo” music and dance parties.”
