Prints from celebrated photographers, murals from painters that bring Bahamian folk art to life, and so much more. Read on to learn about the artists who have helped breathe new life into our iconic hotel. 


Michele Oka Doner

A native of Miami, artist and designer Michele Oka Doner’s art practice has revolved around immersing herself in the natural world of Florida, mining the depths of the oceans, the busy water’s edge, the lush foliage and the ancient geology, searching for forms that express timeless human themes. The lobby features a custom piece by Michele.
