In addition to its gorgeous beaches and stunning waters, one of the things that makes Bimini so enchanting is its location. At slightly more than 50 miles away from Miami, this Bahamian island offers the opportunity for quick flights from both Miami and Ft. Lauderdale International Airports. And for those especially concerned with privacy and distancing, there’s always the option to travel by seaplane.
That’s actually one of the best ways for guests to get to Resorts World Bimini following its post-Christmas reopening. With two- or three-night options, the Tropic Package includes travel on a Tropic Ocean Airways seaplane, which adds an always popular element of adventure and importance to any arrival. But it’s hard to get too excited about the flight to Bimini with all that awaits once guests arrive at this island escape.
Resorts World Bimini’s “Safe in the Sun!” initiative aims to ensure that guests will have the healthiest experience, while not sacrificing rest, relaxation and romance. In coordination with the Bahamas’ Clean and Pristine Certification Program, Resorts World Bimini has ensured that each step, from check-in to check-out, protects both guests and staff alike, and this includes the implementation of hand-sanitizing stations and mask requirements in public spaces.
In addition to the Tropic Package, guests can also book the two- or three-night Silver Package, which includes flights from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale on Silver Airways. All of Resorts World Bimini’s travel partners, including the aforementioned airlines and Bimini Undersea, are also doing their part by practicing strict health and safety protocols.
Prior to this reopening, the Islands of the Bahamas announced new guidelines for travelers to follow, including providing negative results for a PCR test taken within five days of arrival. Additionally, visitors are required to apply for a Bahamas Health Travel Visa, complete a daily health questionnaire for contact tracing purposes, take a rapid antigen test on the fifth day of the visit (if staying longer than five days), obtain mandatory Covid-19 health insurance, and always wear a mask in public places.
As for the resort’s amenities, some things have changed but there is still plenty of fun to be had. The casino will be open daily during specific hours as a slots-only affair. For dining, the Tides and Sushi Bar restaurants are open, as is the Lobby Bar for cocktails and coffee and pastries in the morning. And adventure is certainly still on the agenda, as guests can book fishing excursions and a variety of diving experiences, including the exploration of the S.S. Sapona shipwreck.
