The cruise line welcomed its first guests at the private island destination’s newbeach club on Friday, marking the completion of the US $250 million transformation of Perfect Day at CocoCay.
The island opened several months ago, but the beach club was the final development to be completed in the first phase of the project.
The exclusive beach club touts the first floating cabanas in The Bahamas, an oceanfront infinity pool, beach cabanas, a dedicated restaurant with upscale dining and an exclusive bar.
Rounding out Perfect Day at CocoCay, two new beaches – Breezy Bay at Chill Island and South Beach – have also been opened, and are availableto all guests on the island.
The beach club features Bora Bora-style floating cabanas, and each of them comes with a private slide into the ocean, overwater hammock, dining area, freshwater shower, wet bar and what Royal Caribbean calls “an unbeatable ocean vista for a day of uninterrupted indulgence”.
These cabanas go for US $999 to US $1,599 for up to eight people.
There are also 10 beach cabanas nestled on shore for optimal relaxation and oceanviews.
Whether over the water or on the beach, all thecabanas accommodate up to eight guests and haveloungers, a dining area, charging outlets, a minifridge, snorkel gear and a dedicated cabana attendant.
The beach cabanas are priced from US $949 to US $1,549, for up to eight people.
Overlooking the beach is the Coco Beach Club with a bar serving specialty cocktails, including the Coco Cuvee signature drink, and a 2,600-square-foot, oceanfront infinity pool with in-pool loungers, daybeds and poolside service.
The exclusive restaurant, complimentary and only for beach club guests, serves up an elevated menu that features fresh lobster, grouper and steak, plus a spread of salads, fruits and starters.

Pricing for the day passes is US $54 to US $99 per person, depending on the cruise season. Children younger than 3 are admitted for free.The club can accommodate 450 people on a first-come, first-served basis; pre-booking is recommendedby Royal Caribbean.
