Orange Beach, AL - After more than ten years, Orange Beach's "Bama Bayou" project will continue its development, as a team of premier companies join forces to breathe new life into the project.


"Bama Bayou" is located just off the Foley Beach Expressway in Orange Beach along the Intracoastal Waterway, and will transform 147-plus acres of Orange Beach, Alabama into a gulf destination resort full of fun for families nationwide. The $300-plus million project is expected to offer up to 1,100 hospitality units, aquarium and mammal edutainment opportunities, the largest private convention center in the area, and finally, a world-class outdoor waterpark, of which American Resort Management will oversee the operations.


The 15-acre waterpark will immerse guests in the beauty of the local waterways and wetlands, and provide them with world-class slides and attractions for every member of the family. The park will also feature a massive wave pool and a lazy river that will serve both as a ride and as transportation around the park with numerous entry/exit points.


"We are thrilled to be playing a role in the redevelopment of Bama Bayou, and to be working with such a strong team," said Jeffrey Mona, President and Principal of American Resort Management. "This property will be unlike anything along the Gulf, and will provide guests with the opportunity for brand new experiences every time they visit."


Along with American Resort Management, companies Presidium, Stifel, Aquatic Development Group (ADG), A&R Hospitality Management, and Gulf World/Dolphin Discovery will all play key roles in transforming the currently abandoned development into a world-class destination for all types of guests.
