Tact And Strategy Needed Over Tourism Promotion


The Bahamas must "tactfully and strategically" promote it is open for business ahead of the all-important winter tourism season's November start, a top hotelier says.

Robert Sands, Baha Mar's senior vice-president of government and external affairs, backed the strategy set by Dionisio D'Aguilar, minister of tourism and aviation, and his ministry in a bid to "arrest the double digit booking fall" caused by Hurricane Dorian's fall-out.

Mr Sands told Tribune Business: "The strategy is certainly the right one; the best way to make reservations and support touristic properties in the islands that have not have been affected by Dorian. Principally the message is that The Bahamas is an archipelagic country with many islands from north to south, and 14 other main islands are still available.

The push for post-Dorian employment opportunities


Getting people back to fled Grand Bahama and the Abacos after Hurricane Dorian back to work is a monumental challenge.

But cheers to the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) which, in tandem with public and private sector tourism partners in the region and South Florida, launched "Tourism Jobs for Bahamians" to secure temporary employment for workers displaced by Hurricane Dorian.

The storm blew more than 2,500 hospitality professionals out of work on Grand Bahama and the Abacos, eliminating jobs that were supporting more than 10,000 family members in these islands, according to the CHTA.

Open For Business


Nassau Paradise Island was unaffected by the recent storm. Our thoughts and support are with our neighbors that were severely impacted, The Abacos and Grand Bahama Island.

Nassau Paradise Island is open for business. All hotels, resorts, and attractions are open and welcoming visitors, and it’s business as usual for the Lynden Pindling International Airport.

Where did Hurricane Dorian impact The Bahamas?

The Bahamas is comprised of 700 islands and cays that are spread over a large area in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s about 600 miles from the northernmost island, Grand Bahama Island, and the southernmost, Inagua Island. From the westernmost point, Cay Sal, to the easternmost island of San Salvador, it is a distance of around 400 miles. For context, it would take a jet plane an hour to fly from one end of the Bahamian archipelago to the other.

Sadly, Hurricane Dorian devastated the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco. These islands are located 132 miles and 86 miles, respectively, from Nassau Paradise Island. The Central and South Central Bahamas Regions (including Nassau Paradise Island, Eleuthera & Harbour Island, Andros, The Exumas, San Salvador, etc.), fortunately, were not impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
