What you need to know about SLS Baha Mar
The property itself is massive. There are 299 rooms, and if you include the 1,500 rooms at the rest of Baha Mar, you are almost guaranteed to find a room and a rate that works for you and your group. Coming in 2018, the Rosewood Baha Mar is going to be launching, and adding a more stately side of luxury that is less Vegas and more Monaco. We loved the white-washed rooms, that very much reminded us of our stays in Santorini
. Our room had a balcony with an amazing view, and for me, there’s no better way to take in my morning espresso than by gazing at the ocean and the tiny people below. The rooms were fully stocked with a Nespresso machine, and ours had an entire refrigerator, of which we had no idea what to do with.
What to do at SLS Baha Mar
During our stay, we partook in plenty of pool time at the Privilege pool
, which is adjacent from the main pool area, and adults-only. The pool had everything we needed: great music, poolside drinks and food (watch out though, prices are steep), and plenty of good people watching. On site there is a massive nightclub, Bond. The week prior to our arrival, Bond hosted the DJ Gianluca Vacchi
, and if you haven’t seen this guy yet, he’s what I want to look like in 20 years. When we had had enough of the music blasting at Privilege, we switched over to the main pool, grabbed a cabana and beasted on fresh fruit. I normally order the fruit just for the pictures, but it tasted so good I couldn’t resist devouring everything. Ever since our wedding in Anguilla, I’ve fallen in love with paddle boarding. It was my first time trying it in 2013, and while I was definitely worried about face planting into the board, I was able to pick it up, just like riding a bike. The SLS has plenty of paddleboards, along with snorkel gear, and nurse sharks, turtles, and sting rays, all within easy reach of the beach.
