As the historic Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina completes its final phase of a $6 million-plus renovation, resort owners have announced the appointment of two Bahamian senior level managers.
Larry Williams, a 20-year hotel industry veteran, joins the Big Game Club Resort & Marina as General Manager for the popular 51-room resort. Williams, with an MBA and a B.S. degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management from Morris Brown College, most recently served as General Manager of the Blue Water Resort on Cable Beach. He has also worked for several hotels in the Bahamas, including Divi South Bahamas, Holiday Inns of the Bahamas, Atlantis and Cape Eleuthera Resort and Marina. Williams replaces Steven Riely managing the day-to-day operations of the property, while Riely stays on board in a Managing Director role. Williams is a native of New Providence.
Pedro Miller joins the Bimini Big Game Club as Director of Operations, overseeing resort and guest service operations and finances. As seasoned hotelier with over 20 years’ experience, Miller most recently was Director of Operations for the 740-room Grand Lucayan Beach and Golf Resort in Freeport. He also served as a Director for Starwood Hotel and Resorts’ Westin and Sheraton brands and for Radisson—all with more than 650 rooms and 4 star ratings. Miller is originally from Grand Bahama.
The Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina has long been a Bimini destination favorite, drawing heavily from South Florida (just 50 miles away) as well as being a regional, national and international draw for those looking to experience Bimini’s True Island Feel that has appealed to thousands of visitors, including author Ernest Hemingway.
