HGTV couple transforms Bahamian property into Caerula Mar Club

Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, the celebrity design couple known for their HGTV Canada series “House of Bryan” and “Bryan Inc.,” will open Caerula Mar Club on the island of South Andros in the Bahamas this November.

In August 2017, the couple were vacationing in the Bahamas with their family. On a trip to South Andros, one of the Bahamas lesser-known outer islands, they came across an abandoned resort from the 1960s, which had been on the market for more than 10 years. The couple purchased the 10-acre site and planned to design Caerula Mar Club.

When it opens, Caerula Mar Club will have 18 oceanfront suites and six private villas. Designed with sustainable, natural materials and outdoor living spaces, the oceanfront suites and private villas will have an open-concept living and sleeping areas that will blend traditional architecture with mid-century modern style. Contemporary furnishings will be layered with Belgian linens, aged marble stone and soft white oak floors.

The property will also have three dining options, ranging from a café and smoothie bar to the Driffs Bar & Lounge. Lusca will be the property’s fine dining restaurant.

There will be meditation paths in the area, and hammocks alongside dedicated areas for relaxation, such as a sea turtle-filled reflection pond and yoga mats that can be placed under the shade of palm trees.

A fishing village, South Andros is home to a 190-mile barrier reef that happens to be the third largest in the world. Caerula Mar Club joined the Reef Rescue Network, operated by the Perry Institute for Marine Science, to guide the implementation of an underwater coral nursery to restore and rehabilitate coral reefs in the Bahamas.
