Resorts World Bimini already has a cruise ferry shuttling potential guests from Miami. Now the Genting-managed property is pitching seaplane service.
A package announced last week and good through the end of the year includes roundtrip seaplane fare for visitors who book at least two nights in a studio villa at the resort in the Bahamas. Prices start at $389 per person.
Flights, operated by Tropic Ocean Airways, will leave Miami’s Watson Island daily and arrive about 25 minutes later by the resort in Bimini. Passengers need a passport to travel.
Information about the “Fly Free Island Package” is available at 1-888-930-8688.
Genting announced last year it would turn Bimini Bay Resort into Resorts World Bimini, a hotel and casino complex. The Malaysian company bought the Miami Herald headquarters downtown in 2011 with plans to build a major casino and resort, but lawmakers have not approved the necessary legislation.
In mid-July, Genting started sailing the 1,500-passenger Bimini SuperFast, a gambling boat that travels between Miami and Bimini.
