The Rosewood Baha Mar

The winter vacation is a time-honoured tradition for Canadians — a sorely-needed and fondly-recalled escape from the damp rain and snow. These trips can even transcend the simple designation of vacation and become a full-fledged getaway to offer a sense of total relaxation that washes over our deeply-rooted stress.

With over 700 islands and cays and 16 unique island destinations, The Bahamas lies just 50 miles off the coast of Florida, offering world-class fishing, diving, boating and thousands of miles of the earth’s most spectacular water and beaches.
