Following Rosewood Hotels & Resort’s A Sense of Place philosophy, the entire resort was designed by renowned design studio Wimberly Interiors to create a sense of community, invite conversation amongst new and old friends, and feel chic, elegant and distinctly Bahamian.

The design for the brand-new Rosewood Baha Mar creates a luxurious yet intimate atmosphere that invites guests to feel immediately relaxed, as though they’ve arrived at their private beachfront vacation home.

“We are incredibly proud of the work that Wimberly Interiors has done to create Rosewood Baha Mar’s stunning island-inspired design,” says Luigi Romaniello, managing director of Rosewood Baha Mar. “They’ve created a beautiful, effortless space wherein our guests can slow down and experience the wonders of the Bahamas and share special moments with loved ones.”

“As the jewel in the Baha Mar resort’s crown, we wanted our design for the hotel to reflect the residential quality found on Harbor Island; fresh, modern, and unmistakably Bahamian,” adds Liana Hawes Young, creative director of Wimberly Interiors New York.

Wimberly achieved that residential feel by creating a flow that reflects that of a home and building multiple seating areas where guests can connect with one another. Guests enter through a foyer-like space and then flow seamlessly into the Living Room, which is residential in style and features multiple couches and seating areas from which guests can check in for their stays.

A Library Lounge boasts high ceilings and two grand bookcases that expand into the lofty interior. A soothing palette of pale blues and greens are punctuated with rich textures and bold colors found throughout the fabric and art selection.

Within the guest rooms, meanwhile, a curated mix of furnishings and finishes creates a fresh, modern design, whilst feeling distinctly Bahamian.
