Resorts World Bimini Bahamas, the multi-million dollar gaming facility set to open in the 2013 first quarter, has unveiled renderings showcasing the completed venue.
The 10,000 square foot casino, located within the Bimini Bay Resort, will introduce a new concept to the destination and feature state-of-the-art gaming that includes popular table games, slots and a sports book within a modern South Beach d�cor, entertainment bar and restaurant lounge.
“With interiors showcasing a unique, chic and modern design, the casino is ideally positioned within the resort, enjoying serene vistas of the turquoise waters and the resort’s mega yacht marina,” said Dana Leibovitz, president of Resorts World Bimini Bahamas.
“We are also already considering additional entertainment amenities for phase two of the casino that will further make Bimini Bay a distinctive destination.”
The casino is being launched by a partnership between RAV Bahamas, developer of the Bimini Bay Resort & Marina and Rockwell Island Beach Estates and Genting Malaysia Berhad.
The new casino is projected to create 130 Bahamian jobs, as well as indirect employment opportunities for Biminites.
“This new casino is the first step in our plans to develop and showcase Bimini as a world-class leisure destination. The benefits to the local economy will be vast as we continue to expand our business with Resorts World Bimini,” said Leslie Bethel, RAV Bahamas’ chief operating officer.
Additional developments include a high-speed ferry service from Florida to Bimini offered by Balearia’s Bahamas Express, which will launch in mid-November 2012. Resorts World Bimini and Bimini Bay Resort & Marina are also working on attracting additional airlift and transportation to the island.
