About The Royal Caribbean Beach Club

The first in what will become a collection of Royal Beach Clubs, the new destination for RCI cruisers will take shape in the coming months ahead of a scheduled 2025 opening. At this location, Bahamians will own up to 49 percent equity. Local businesses and entrepreneurs will also manage parts of the construction and experience, which will generate hundreds of jobs in the short and long term.

To date, Bahamians have participated in workshops to develop authentic local dishes, music, entertainment, sports, activities, and design ideas that reflect the true Bahamian spirit and style. Those will combine with signature RCI touches across the experience, service, and design.

Visitors will be welcomed by vibrant and charming local architecture crafted by a Bahamian architectural firm, along with the Bahamas’ turquoise waters and white sand beaches. The club will feature three swimming pools, swim-up bars, private cabanas, four spots to grab quick bites to eat and local fare, and experiences that feature local artisans and live music.

““As we break ground on Royal Beach Club Paradise Island, together with the government and the people of The Bahamas, we are celebrating what partnership and innovation can achieve. This will be yet one more reason, in Nassau’s bright future, to experience a destination we have visited since the very beginning of Royal Caribbean more than 50 years ago,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“The beauty and charm of the island are why we chose to debut the Royal Beach Club Collection in Nassau, and with the collaboration and support of local entrepreneurs and the wider community, we know that what we create will far exceed everything we imagined.”
