Harcourt Developments (Bahamas) has partnered with casino operator Foxwoods Development Co. to renovate and reopen the Royal Oasis Resort, in Freeport, on Grand Bahama Island.
Owned by Harcourt, the resort, once it’s expanded and renovated, will be home to more than 650 hotel rooms and suites, a casino, convention/meeting facilities, spa, fitness centre, restaurants, retail shops, recreation facilities and other amenities. The two on-site golf courses will also be restored. The Royal Oasis closed in September, 2004, after being severely damaged by hurricanes.
The Royal Oasis represents a major expansion of Harcourt’s interests in Grand Bahama. The company also owns multiple sites in Bahamia and is the estate manager for the entire area. Foxwoods Development Co. is owned and operated by the Connecticut-based Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.
