Secrets of the Mega Resort: inside the ridiculously lavish £3.4billion resort

Get ready for a sneak peek inside one of the world’s most luxurious holiday resorts; the Baha Mar in the Bahamas.

The 1000-acre complex cost £3.4billion to build and is made up of three five-star hotels; the Rosewood, SLS and Grand Hyatt.

It can cater up to 7,000 guests at any one time, and reportedly hosts nearly one million holidays a year. In fact it’s so big, it even has its own electricity plant.

Now, new Channel 5 documentary Secrets of the Mega Resort reveals just what goes on behind-the-scenes at this immense complex, meeting with some of the 5,000 staff members of staff who keep everything running smoothly.

Unsurprisingly, everything about the resort is extravagant, from the opulent suites to the 40 restaurants and bars (including bars where cocktails are dispensed by a computer), sports facilities and of course those world-famous Bahamas beaches.

One particular highlight is the lavish Presidential Suite which is four times the size of the average house in Britain!

The ridiculously swanky suite has THREE en-suite bedrooms, a lounge with a pool table, its very own state-of-the-art cinema room, and even its own lift.



The resort boasts three hotels

Oh, and for guests looking to take in the views, they will have a choice of SEVEN balconies, or you can always hop into the private terrace with its own hot tub.

The suite also comes with perks including free rides in a private jet and use of a 215ft-long superyacht.



Everything about it is extravagant

 

Wondering what the price tag is on the room? Well, it’s completely free – although it is reserved for ‘high rollers’ aka ultra-rich gamblers who have been known to bet millions of pounds over a weekend.

As for the activities? There’s no risk of guests twiddling their thumbs.



It’s basically a playground for millionaires

In fact, the resort boasts its very own casino and full-service spa, while sports fans have a plethora of activities to choose from including golf courses, the Racquet Club, water sports, a gym, fitness classes, croquet, basketball and heaps more.

Everything about the resort is lavish – even the pool parties where waitresses soak the guests in champagne, and you need to spend at least $300 on food and drink if you want to use a deckchair (for the cabanas, that minimum spend can jump up to $3,500).



The resort boasts its own on-site casino

Even the restaurants can be the ideal place for over-indulging. The resort’s exclusive steakhouse has a 1.5kg steak ‘The Tomahawk’ which costs $265 – but you get it completely free if you can finish the whole thing by yourself.

The Baha Mar also features its own nature reserve as well as resident flamingos which can be spotted walking around the resort. Guests can also get up close to the likes of sharks, stingrays and turtles at the aquarium.

Secrets of the Mega Resort airs on Channel 5 at 9pm on Sunday 10th November.
