In December 1998, following a sample bedroom analysis process Larimar was awarded the contract to manufacture and supply the new bedroom furniture for all 291 bedrooms for the renamed Hilton British Colonial Hotel in Nassau, Bahamas. The interior design project was undertaken by the renowned practice of John David Edison from Toronto, Canada. The design carefully adopted the era of the buildings architecture which dates from 1923. Although there was an original wooden 'Colonial Hotel' on the site dating from 1901 which was built by Henry M. Flagler who had been responsible for the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach. His enormous wooden hotel, replacing the original structure which was the Old Fort of Nassau, burnt down in 1922.
RHK of Canada bought the hotel in 1997 and embarked on a $90 million refurbishment.
