Bahamas Hotel & Tourism Association

Who We Are

The tourism industry plays a most important role in the Bahamian economy and the hotel sector makes a major contribution in this effort. The Bahamas Hotel Association (BHA) represents the interests of the country's leading hotels and a large allied membership of companies that support the industry.

We have created this Web site to inform the public and prospective members about the BHA and to enhance the organisation by taking advantage of the many community features of the Internet.

BHTA President Urges Businesses to Plan Now for VAT Implementation


With the Government’s VAT implementation date set for January 1, 2015, BHTA President Stuart Bowe urges businesses to begin planning as much as they possibly can now to avoid costly delays and transition challenges.

“We continue to deliberate with Government to release the draft legislation, regulations, customs duty schedules and guide notes well in advance of January 1. Businesses should not sit back and wait for these items to be in place.  We encourage all stakeholders to utilize this time to gain more knowledgeable on VAT and to plan for its implementation wherever possible” states Bowe.



The primary objective of the BHA is to do everything possible to promote, increase and regulate tourism.
