The partypoker Caribbean Poker Party 2018 at the luxurious Baha Mar resort is going to be the poker/holiday event of the year! The Main Event and MILLIONS World are two of the most spectacular tournaments on the poker calendar, with both boasting incredible $10M guarantees. But away from the unbelievable poker in prospect, why else should you pack your bags and get away in November for a ten-day festival of fun, sun and cocktails in the Bahamas? We've got six reasons for you:
Now, the word luxurious doesn’t really do the Baha Mar justice. In their own words, they are “Tailored to be the perfect blend of bliss and play, chill and thrill, nature and nourish.” And they’re not kidding. The Baha Mar is designed solely to give visitors a spectacular experience, with a choice of three celebrated hotels, a tantalising collection of luxury lounges, bars and restaurants, a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, an ESPA spa, indulgent shopping facilities, and, of course, most importantly of all, an absolutely stunning ocean view casino.
Ultra-Relaxing Shell Massage
One thing you won’t want to miss at the Baha Mar will be enjoying a Shell Massage at the ESPA, which involves “skilled therapists using a powerful combination of essential aromatherapy oils and gently heated Tiger Clam shells to release deep-seated knots with trigger-point techniques.” Don’t know about you, but I feel more relaxed just reading that. The therapists will then perform a “deeply relaxing scalp massage using cool rose quartz crystals to revitalize both your mind and body.” Wow.
Whether you want simple yet sophisticated seafood dining at 3 Tides Fish House, an array of exotic global cuisine at the Regatta Food Hall, poolside bars offering North American favourites, brilliant barbecue food on the beach, or an ultra-luxe, authentic Chinese dining experience at the Shuang Ba, the Baha Mar has it all. The food is, quite simply, outstanding.
Awesome Off-the-felt Entertainment
There will also be, as always, an array of brilliant off the felt activities to make sure every moment of the Caribbean Poker Party is an unforgettable holiday as well as a top poker festival. Normally, there are pool parties galore, golf days, nightclub visits, luxury catamaran cruises, and more cocktails than you'll know what to do with, and you can expect more of the same this time around.
Opulent Jazz Club and Cocktails
Another indulgence to not miss out on at the Baha Mar will be a visit to the Blue Note, the brilliant live jazz club at the resort. There’s no feeling quite like sipping on some of the very finest craft cocktails – classics like the negroni or caipirinha, or even the Baha Mar’s new take on the Bahamian classic Sky Juice, the Cloud 9 – while you simply sit back and listen as the smoothest of smooth jazz washes over you, soothing your mind, body and soul.
The Baha Mar Casino itself is a terrific place to play, with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the sparkling sea by day, and dazzling fire and light displays by night. It makes playing at The Baha Mar Casino a spectacle like no other. The casino is designed so that every level of player, from casual players to the most super of super high rollers, can enjoy the wonderful surroundings, whilst their every need is catered to. As the Baha Mar themselves put it: “It is the Caribbean’s largest, most glamorous casino—perfectly combining high energy and sublime luxury.”
