Royal Caribbean International reveals the first glimpse at the private island’s first adults-only getaway -Hideaway Beach – while dialing up the perfect at the one-of-a-kind Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas. The beachfront paradise, which will premiere in January 2024 with the introduction of the highly awaited Icon of the Seas, is an all-day experience that will include a private beach and pools, new dedicated areas for drinks and snacks, exclusive cabanas, live music, and more.
“Hideaway Beach is a completely new vibe and experience that vacationers are looking for on Perfect Day at CocoCay. Everything from its hidden-like location to the exclusive beach and pools to the private cabanas is designed for adults who want a day just for them. There are experiences for everyone on a Royal Caribbean vacation, and that’s at the heart of our private island and its popularity. Whether it’s thrill or chill, family time or time to celebrate, families and friends can create their ‘perfect’ vacation day without compromise, and Hideaway Beach adds to what continues to be an unmatched combination of ways to do just that.”Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International
Hideaway Beach, located on the northwest beach of Perfect Day at CocoCay, offers the best of a tropical escape. Vacationers aged 18 and up can party, cool down, and relax on a private beach, two pools, 20 cabanas, seven open-air bars and restaurants, and more for a fee:
Hideaway Beach – Hideaway Beach visitors get exclusive access to almost an acre of The Bahamas’ pristine sand beaches and turquoise waters. Vacationers can enjoy the views and breeze of the beach from any of the resort-style loungers and umbrellas along the shore, or from the in-water hammocks and swings while playing beach games and listening to the rhythms of the live DJ beside the pool.
Hideaway Pool – Partygoers may amp up the party with all-day tunes from the DJ and the bustling swim-up bar in the heart of the action. Every position in the heated infinity-edge pool is also the greatest seat in the house to soak in the picture-perfect views, with in-water seats and loungers and poolside loungers.
Hideaway Cabanas – Just steps away from the celebration, tourists can elevate their day in paradise at ten beautiful poolside cabanas with amenities such as cabana attendant service at the touch of a button, a mini-fridge, floating beach mats, and charging outlets.
The Hideout – This hideaway at one end of Hideaway Beach is close to the action but offers a more secluded, elevated experience. Those opting for a more VIP, calm feel can kick back at a heated infinity-edge plunge pool – only to The Hideout visitors – and enjoy the convenience of benefits like cabana attendant service, in-water loungers, an outdoor shower, and resort-style sitting in one of ten Hideout Cabanas.
The all-new Hideaway Beach will be the newest addition to Royal Caribbean’s award-winning resort, which raised the standard of private islands after undergoing a $250 million refurbishment in 2019. Since then, the cruise line has brought additional experiences to the island, such as an elevated beach hideaway at Coco Beach Club and the rebuilt South Beach in 2020. Royal Caribbean is upping the ante on vacations designed for every type of vacationer from ship to shore, with everything from thrill to chill, experiences for kids and families – like 13 waterslides at the record-breaking Thrill Waterpark and the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean and The Bahamas – and now an adults-only paradise.
Travelers visiting Perfect Day at CocoCay in 2024 will be able to choose from Royal Caribbean’s most extensive lineup of vacations, thanks to a combination of 22 ships sailing from more than nine different cities, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Port Canaveral (Orlando), Florida; Cape Liberty (New York), New Jersey; and Galveston, Texas. Getting away can range from three nights on the new Utopia of the Seas, which will launch in July 2024, to seven nights on Icon, a first-of-its-kind mix of the finest of every holiday; freshly enhanced ships, and more.
