Warwick International Hotels (WIH) has invested US$40 million to create the four-star Warwick Paradise Island Bahamas, which is set to welcome guests this summer as The Bahamas’ premier adults-only, all-inclusive resort.
Set along Nassau Harbour with views of Nassau and Paradise Island, the 12-floor, 244-room Warwick Paradise Island Bahamas has been designed to provide adult guests (18 years and older) with an unpretentious all-inclusive vacation experience with service dedicated to pampering travelers.
Warwick Paradise Island Bahamas is offering an Early Bird Savings of 30% off bookings made by July 31, 2016 with discounted nightly rates starting at $371 per room, per night, based on double occupancy.
Reservations opened on April 11 for guest arrivals beginning Oct. 1, 2016. For more information and to make reservations, visit http://warwickhotels.com/paradise-island-bahamas, or call 1-888-645-5550.
At Warwick Paradise Island Bahamas, singles, couples, friends, adult families and groups will enjoy a private escape in a modern facility. All-inclusive rates include all meals and snacks; alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages; standard Wi-Fi internet access from the “beach to the bedroom;” daily activities and nightly entertainment; non-motorized watersports; use of the fully equipped fitness centre; and gratuities, taxes, surcharges and 7.5% Value Added Tax (VAT).
WIH contracted Washington, D.C.-based Perkins Eastman to develop the overall design concept for the public spaces, food and beverage facilities and entertainment areas, which all feature localized, sophisticated, elegant and fun elements. Inspired by the local Bahamian culture, Perkins Eastman incorporated, for example, woven basket light fixtures as a nod to the basket weaving industry in the destination. Splashes of hot colors, echoing the happy spirit of The Bahamas’ Junkanoo Carnival, are strategically featured throughout the resort while historical architectural styles, such as weathered Bahamian shutters, were integrated underscoring the flow of outdoor/indoor living. Natural materials that represent sand, water, shells, driftwood, and palm trees were sprinkled in throughout the property. The space is designed to provide a welcoming atmosphere for visitors to come and experience the relaxing and uplifting Bahamian lifestyle.
Amsterdam-based UXUS designed the guest rooms and hallways to reflect a contemporary hotel that relates to the true cultural identity of The Bahamas. The team took cues from both land and sea that express local culture as well as presenting the islands’ rich historical and international character.
The guest room concept centers on the room as a retreat with an uncluttered vacation feel mixed with touches of local craftsmanship. The color and material scheme of the rooms are inspired by island nature and marine life highlighted by cool neutral wall colors, wood tile floors and bathrooms outlined by color blocking.
With the resort set along the harbour, new floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors were installed in the harbour deluxe balcony and harbour premium balcony rooms to allow natural light to flow into the rooms.
All accommodations have been completely transformed with larger windows, clean lines and geared to the international traveller with multiple power ports and USB inputs bedside. The resort offers five room categories including Island View, Water View, Harbour Deluxe Balcony, Harbour Premium Balcony and Harbourfront One-Bedroom Suite.
All rooms feature individually controlled air-conditioning, mini-refrigerator, flat-screen television with cable, coffee/tea maker, hair dryer, electronic safe, clock radio, direct dial telephone with voicemail and Wi-Fi.
