Meliá Nassau Beach, a Meliá Hotels International resort, began phase one of a $19-million renovation plan, expected to be completed by November. The resort on Nassau's Cable Beach will remain open throughout the redesign.

Renovations throughout the entire Meliá Nassau Beach property are expected to be completed by early 2016. Upon completion of the renovations, Meliá Nassau Beach will be the only upscale all-inclusive resort in Nassau's destination resort, Baha Mar.

Once the first phase of the redesign is complete, the Meliá Nassau Beach will have 694 guestrooms offering modern décor and a private patio or balcony. In addition, the hotel will introduce guests to THE LEVEL, a service by Meliá Hotels & Resorts offering exclusive experiences, select room categories, a private pool and beach area, a separate check-in area in THE LEVEL Lounge located upstairs from the main lobby and preferred reservations for restaurants and other activities.
