Baha Bay at Baha Mar Resort in Nassau, Bahamas was created to deliver a world-class water park experience within a luxury resort setting. Baha Bay serves guests from three different hotel brands, as well as outside guests on the island. With clientele from across the globe, the design for the Baha Bay Water Park carefully considered how to create everything from a romantic experience for couples wanting secluded lounge areas, to a world-class thrill experience for teens, and fun adventure for young families.
Baha Bay provides an incredible assortment of aquatic activities designed to compete with the best water park amenities in the world. The diverse set of experiences required for resort guests includes family water rides, quiet pool experiences, and thrill rides designed by ProSlide, setting a new standard for quality and innovation, with many being the first of its kind in the Caribbean:

- Caribbean’s first BehemothBOWL Family Tubing feature

Baha Mar is designed to be an authentic Bahamas resort experience, inspired by traditional architectural designs local to the area, and the Baha Bay Water Park needed to reflect that aesthetic, as well. The design incorporates elements in the landscape that are representative of the local stone character and plant palette. This aesthetic is evident in the natural stone textures in the water features and shell patterns in the walkways, the use of natural stone within the infinity pools, and custom art on the buildings, completed on-site by local artists.
Baha Bay was designed and built to set a new standard of water park and resort amenities in the Caribbean and the world. The result has garnered many accolades and awards including the most recent World Travel Awards Caribbean’s Leading Water Park 2022 and World Waterpark Association’s Leading Edge Award 2022. This project placed an incredible number of experiences in a tight and complicated site design. Unique features such as a gaming pavilion, a variety of first-of-its-kind rides, and the integration of local artists created a new standard in water park spaces. This resulted in a water park befitting of its luxury resort setting.
