Bahamas resort launches luxe COVID-19 plan for visitors

Baha Mar — the Bahamas resort where Drake was recently spotted with fellow rappers Meek Mill and Lil Baby — has hatched a luxe plan to quarantine any travels who come down with coronavirus.

The resort says it will provide courtesy private jet service back to the States, or give guests a complimentary 14-day stay, if they test positive for COVID-19 prior to departure, so they won’t be stranded in the island paradise.

Calling it the “Travel with Confidence” program, the resort would also give any infected guests a daily dining credit of $150 per day, for up to 14 days in quarantine, while they stay in a courtesy suite.

Baha Mar’s president, Graeme Davis, said in a statement: “In this ever-changing travel environment, it is our goal to alleviate travelers’ concerns surrounding COVID-19, in an effort to ensure the health, safety and comfort of our guests… Our Travel with Confidence program is the first of its kind in the industry, providing travelers with added peace of mind and the option to safely return home, or quarantine at no added expense – the choice is theirs.”

The resort already includes such safety measures as on-site complimentary testing, mandatory mask-wearing in public, social distancing and cleanliness
protocols. The Bahamas also requires visitors to test negative before arriving on the island as part of a health visa.

Drake was seen last month in the Bahamas staying at nearby Albany — a private retreat owned by a group including Justin Timberlake and pro golfers Tiger Woods and Ernie Els. He was reported to be shooting a video with Meek Mill during his stay, and hanging out at the Baha Mar Casino at night, along with Fanatics mogul Michael Rubin.

Baha Mar is also launching a Café Boulud The Bahamas location next month from top chef Daniel Boulud.
