Port Lucaya Resort and Yacht Club in Grand Bahama to Close After 16 Years

The Miami Herald is reporting that two hotel closures, one permanent and the other temporary, were announced in The Bahamas. Last year, the 3,000-room Atlantis laid off 800 workers, or 10 percent of its staff. In May, the Four Seasons in Exuma closed. Then this week, just as Sandals International Resort announced that it had purchased The Four Seasons, the general manager of the Port Lucaya Resort and Yacht Club  in Grand Bahama announced that it was shutting its doors on August 31 after nearly 16 years. The announcement came just days after the Wyndam Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino said it will be closed until October 5.
