Update 6/30: One thing that has been missing from the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar was a kosher breakfast option.
They already had dinner covered with one of the best kosher restaurants in the world, at Cinko.
But as of today, there are now kosher breakfast options at Knosh!
The menu is a soft launch and they have plans to expand it.
The lunch menu has also added a Margherita Pizza and Mac & Cheese option!
Check out a full review of this hotel on Instagram here.
I wrote about our trip to the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in the Bahamas in January 2020, but boy have things there changed since COVID!
The Baha Mar resort has since opened a water park and last December it opened a kosher Asian-Latin fusion restaurant, Cinko Asian Latino Grill. The menu can be found here and reviews have been very positive. Kids under 5 eat free at Cinko.
The glatt kosher/pas yisroel restaurant is under the supervision of Chabad of the Bahamas with a mashgiach temidi. You do not need to stay at Baha Mar to eat at the restaurant, but reservations are needed.
Cinko is open on Sundays through Thursdays from 6-10pm and offers Friday night eat-in Shabbos meals and Shabbos day to go meals, which you can reserve here.
The Baha Mar is the only Hyatt in the world with a full time kosher restaurant.
Premade cholov yisroel/pas yisroel kosher breakfast and lunch are available from 7am-3pm daily from the Baha Mar’s Cafe Madeleine or all day from in-room dining, the menu for that can be found here.
And now the Baha Mar has opened a full time kosher food truck on the resort’s beachfront, called Knosh. You can find their menu here. Knosh is open on Sundays through Fridays from 11am-6pm and is cholov yisroel/pas yisroel.
You can also order premade kosher salads and sandwiches any time, including on Motzei Shabbos, via in-room dining.
During the summer months through mid-September, Chabad of the Bahamas has Shabbos minyanim in the Baha Mar. Those are held in Cinko restaurant, with Mincha/Kabalas Shabbos at 7:45pm, Shacharis at 9:30am, and Mincha/Maariv/Havdalah at 7:40pm. After mid-September the minyan shifts back to Chabad of the Bahamas, which is a 12 minute walk from the Baha Mar.
Other hotels on the Baha Mar campus include the SLS and Rosewood.
It’s pretty incredible to see this level of catering for kosher observant travelers. Hopefully other hotels take notice and offer similar services!
Have you stayed at the Baha Mar since the kosher restaurants opened? What did you think of them and your stay? Will you plan a future visit?
