Whenever anyone asks me if a trip to Baha Mar lives up to the hype, I just rub my belly and bellow, “Oh yeah!” Okay, not really, but my response always begins and ends with enormous praise for the dining options at this celebrated Bahamas resort. And I have still only enjoyed one-third of the hotel experience here, having first stayed at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar. That means SLS Baha Mar and Rosewood Baha Mar are still near the top of my travel wish list.

But it doesn’t matter where you’re staying when it comes to the amazing food and drink. No matter what you’re in the mood for, the 22 restaurants (not including a pair of Starbucks) and 16 bars will check all the boxes, and the toughest task will always be convincing yourself not to go back to the place you absolutely loved last night. (I would have eaten every meal at The Swimming Pig if I could have.)

So, where do you start? Well, you can’t go wrong by simply following the buzz, as Rosewood Baha Mar’s reopening earlier this year was especially electric thanks to the unveiling of the new Café Boulud The Bahamas restaurant from celebrated chef Daniel Boulud. This property has had travelers clamoring to return to Baha Mar—the introduction of Baha Bay also helps—and so if you can’t wait to experience the sophisticated accommodations and wonderful cuisine, here are five cocktail recipes that will help you remain patient.

(To obtain the ice ball, place an orchid flower inside a sphere-shaped mold along with distilled filtered water so the ice ball is clear. Place in the freezer until it has a solid frozen consistency.)
