Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point Updates: Meet the Bahamian Artists of Disney Lookout Cay!

Hello, travelers! Follow along for exclusive updates as we await the grand opening of Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, Disney Cruise Line’s newest, one-of-a-kind tropical retreat on the island of Eleuthera, The Bahamas.

At Disney Cruise Line’s newest destination on the island of Eleuthera, you will find themselves immersed in the spirit and culture of The Bahamas, alongside signature Disney entertainment, incredible beaches, port adventures, nature trails and activities for the whole family. Today, we’re introducing another one-of-a-kind feature of this island destination – the locally designed art peppered throughout Disney Lookout Cay.

These beautiful, permanent art installations were created by Bahamian artists to share the vibrant colors and natural wonders of The Bahamas through a variety of inspired sculptures, paintings and more.

Let’s meet some of the artists who helped to bring Disney Lookout Cay to life:

  • When you arrive at Disney Lookout Cay, they’ll be greeted by a towering sculpture by acclaimed Bahamian artist Antonius Roberts. The piece was constructed from a fallen tree that was found on Lighthouse Point property prior to construction!
  • Look closely at the exterior doors throughout the destination: they have wood carvings inspired by Andret John’s original designs.
  • At the Goombay Cultural Center and the cabanas, keep an eye out for paintings of Eleuthera’s landscapes by painter Kevin Cooper—you just might recognize the famous Lighthouse Point Beach, which is only steps away.
  • Stay inspired by nature with sculptures by mixed media artist and painter, Edrin Symonette, located throughout Disney Lookout Cay.
  • Notice those colorful designs on several buildings? Painter Dorman Stubbs created the original murals that have been replicated at Disney Lookout Cay.
  • Look up in the dining pavilions to see land- and sea-inspired art designed by interdisciplinary artist Kishan Munroe.
