A few days ago I spotted a post on the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar Facebook page that their Grand Club Lounge was now open. I had planned to write about it the next day since I know many of you have that resort on your destination wish lists, but when I went back the next day to reference the hotel’s Facebook post, it was gone.
After messaging with the hotel it turns out I didn’t hallucinate the whole thing…which is always a possibility. There was indeed a post about the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar’s Grand Club Lounge’s recent opening, but there are some caveats to the opening that were confusing some guests, so for simplicity’s sake, they took down the post.
However, they did share the photos with me to pass along, as well as offer some clarification about the current opening status. This very large resort has been opening in phases since this spring, and while the Grand Club Lounge is now open, it is only open for the moment to Hyatt Globalists, Lifetime Globalists, and Hyatt Courtesy Cardholders.
It is not yet open for folks to book Club Level rooms and get access, nor is it open for Hyatt Explorists to use one of their four club passes per year. They did not have a time estimate to provide as to when that might change, but said to keep an eye on their social media pages for updates as they work to expand access.
For what it is worth, I am seeing rates under $200 per night for this resort this summer, which would likely be a better plan than spending 20,000 Hyatt points, though do factor in taxes and the resort fee when deciding which is the better deal. As far as reviews go, it seems the physical property itself is impressive, but the staggered opening and new staff has led to some frustrations, so decide for yourself if you want to visit sooner or later. We have a visit scheduled for the fall, and I’m quite looking forward to it – especially with the lounge open since food costs in The Bahamas are very significant. I really hope they open up the lounge for all that are eligible to visit in the near future.
If you have been to the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar I would love to hear about your stay!
