The Cove Eleuthera Announces Resort Updates and Renovation Plans for Freedom Restaurant & Grill During Seasonal Closure

Intimate Caribbean Resort to Re-Open November 7 With Refreshed Resort Interiors and Reimagined Freedom Restaurant Dining Experience

Bahamas, Gregory Town, Eleuthera. August 25, 2022

Located just 50 miles east of Nassau and a short 45-minute flight from South Florida, The Cove Eleuthera today announced plans for a restaurant renovation and other updates during its seasonal closure from August 22-November 6.

When The Cove reopens, travelers and locals alike can expect upgraded accommodations and a top-to-bottom transformation of Freedom Restaurant & Grill.

"The enhancements we have planned will further solidify The Cove as the premier resort destination on Eleuthera," said Carlton Russell, managing director of The Cove. "With elevated dining, accommodations, programming, and of course, our serene location, we look forward to unveiling The Cove's upgrades in November."

California-based BAR Architects & Interiors has been tapped to re-envision the resort's new look, which marries elements of its natural, oceanfront surroundings with casual and contemporary flair. Reopening with its current inventory of 27 premium villas, the refreshed interiors will feature a color palette of ivory and indigo with natural wood accents that speak to Eleuthera's pristine white beaches and turquoise waters. Woven straw mats and rustic, yet sophisticated furnishings will adorn each villa.

Designed to be the focal point, Freedom Restaurant & Grill, which has long been regarded on this island for its culinary program and Asian-inspired cuisine, especially its sushi, will see a complete overhaul for a reimagined dining experience. Interiors will feature a warm weathered teak palette and natural textures accented with lush greenery hanging above patrons to mimic the island's limestone cliffs. Colors draw inspiration from the Caribbean islands, Atlantic Ocean and ripe pineapples found in Gregory Town. Consisting of three new structures, Freedom will feature a central sushi bar and an elegant bar area overlooking the hilltop pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic waterfront views as guests enjoy locally inspired cuisine.

Additionally, The Cove will introduce a refurbished fitness and wellness experience. The onsite gym will feature brand new Technogym equipment as well as a separate room for guided yoga classes. A welcoming retreat where guests will find themselves rejuvenated, the fitness center and spa suites at The Cove have been intentionally designed to nurture tranquil wellbeing.

Immersive programming will continue to be at the forefront of the guest experience at The Cove. With organic garden tours, guided island outings to Queen's Bath and Preacher's Cave, excursions with the resort's boat captain, to more relaxed pursuits, such as lounging by the pool, guests of The Cove have access to myriad options for both outdoor adventure and relaxation.

The Cove's seasonal closure begins August 22, and the resort will reopen for guests on November 7, 2022. For more information about The Cove Eleuthera, please visit or call (242) 335-5141. To engage with the resort socially, find us on Instagram at @thecove_eleuthera.

Hotel Human Resources: The Great Resignation

Hotels have always struggled with the task of attracting and retaining qualified employees. At any given moment, hotels are consistently understaffed which makes providing quality guest services a persistent challenge. Additionally, as a consequence of the pandemic, there has been a mass exodus of workers who left their employers and haven't returned. This phenomenon has become known as the Great Resignation. In one month alone last year, over 900,000 employees left hospitality jobs, affecting all areas of operations including frontline workers,  restaurant and housekeeping staff, and hotel management. To overcome these challenges, Human Resource departments are implementing a variety of solutions. First, they are reassessing their wage and benefits guidelines in an effort to become more competitive. They are also leveraging digital technology to attract and retain talent, and to improve the employee experience. The goal is to centralize communications, enhance employee engagement, empower independent decision-making, and expand educational opportunities. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these critical employment issues in their respective departments.
