NASSAU, Bahamas -
- "Baha Mar began hosting media, government officials and VIPs on Thursday, as the long-delayed beachfront resort just west of Nassau prepared to start taking reservations from the general public for stays starting in late May.

Dozens of workers hustled to prepare the guest rooms and public areas of the 1,800-room Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, its 100,000-square-foot casino, its arcade of high-end retailers and a handful of the 40 restaurants and bars that is serving the estimated 800 people Baha Mar was hosting on Thursday.

The resort's ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday morning, attended by Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie and Baha Mar president Graeme Davis.

As for the general public, Baha Mar was scheduled to start taking reservations on April 21 for stays beginning May 29.

Has anyone visited Baha Mar resort?

We're staying at Harborside @ Atlantis next month and I'm thinking of adding it to our todo list. I've kinda followed the development progress over the years. This is my first visit back to the island since their grand opening last year.
