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.


Tourism and Taxes: Addressing the Myths


While most Bahamians appreciate the essential role that tourism plays in our economy, lives and livelihoods; there is a need to further clarify the tax and revenue contributions to our economy.  The goal is to dispel any myths about this industry.  We all stand to pay a hefty price if rhetoric drives public taxation policies.

As the Government seeks new revenues to reduce the budget deficit, the tourism industry has become a prime target by some. Tourism leaders understand how important it is to keep our economy in recovery, and believe the industry has paid its fair share.
