Luxury Hotels


Saturday is food day and this week the subject is social food. English manor houses, palaces and castles have spawned a global greed for elegant afternoon teas. Plantation houses in former colonies are also many of today’s exciting theatres.

At ROSEWOOD BAHA MAR in Nassau, the hotel’s lobby-floor Library sets the scene. It’s an elegant room, with windows along one wall looking into tree tops of the lush greenery outside (the lobby is one floor up). Another wall of Library windows looks through to that lobby, its walls completely covered in soft-grey landscapes, all hand-painted.  The Library itself, as you can see, is height of traditional  elegance.  It is used daily for bijou breakfasts, 8 to 11 a.m., and at all times for ad hoc enjoyment of hotel guests.

During this week’s ILTM Americas, Rosewood hosted media to a tea-time soirée. Michaela Guzy, host of Oh The People You Meet OTPYM (now showing on Qatar Airways) was so happy she did a little dance.

Girlahead was more than happy with the food performance throughout her stay. Rosewood’s Café Boulud is divine for breakfast, particularly outside under the shade of massive trees – later in the day, try the tasty beef tartare, especially with a gargantuan side of fries.  Much of the big-catering in the entire complex comes from GRAND HYATT, which is responsible for the Convention Center and the associates’ dining, which means over 7,000 meals a day, and sushi if you want it.

Hyatt’s own restaurants include Shuang Ba, off the casino. It has Chinese chefs and The Bahamas’ lead DMC told Girlahead that this is the most authentic Cantonese in the entire Caribbean Oh wow, don’t miss the Peking duck, carved tableside with surgeon’s skill.

Dine divinely, here at ILTM Americas.
