A group of 5 Scandinavian Tour Operators was recently invited by the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board to experience first hand the beauty and charm of sun kissed New Providence Island in The Bahamas, where the country’s charming capital Nassau, stunning Cable Beach and fun loving Paradise Island, with its iconic Atlantis Resort, can be found.
Staying for 2 nights at the Atlantis Royal Towers, the largest and most photographed towers at the sprawling Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, and 2 nights at the All Inclusive family friendly Meliá Nassau Beach resort on Cable Beach, often considered as one of the most beautiful built-up beaches in the Caribbean, the 3 tour operators from Sweden and 2 from Norway took time to visit in detail the Atlantis Resort facilities, as well as those of most of the other member hotels of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board.
Besides the interesting site visits, the tour operators were able to experience a day at sea on a sailing boat, snorkelling in the crystal clear waters that the Bahamas is famous for and relaxing on a desert beach in nearby Rose Island.
The next day the group went on a journey of culinary and cultural discovery with a walking food tour through the old colonial buildings of Nassau’s downtown, tasting along the way some of the city’s most delicious bites and drinks. The culinary delights continued with an evening of local food at the famous Arawak Cay Fish Fry, while gourmet and innovative cuisine was sampled during dinners at the hotel restaurants.
With consistent great weather and blue skies, the group returned delighted from the trip, with plans already on how to propose the destination to their clients, both as a destination on its own, or in combination with vacations in nearby USA and Canada.
The trip was organized and escorted by AMG Ltd, the London based representation office for UK and Europe of the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board, with assistance of the Bahamas Tourist Office in the UK for some of the touring activities, and follows the Promotion Board’s forays into the Scandinavian market this year at TUR in Gothenburg and during the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s road show to Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
