The Bachelor Nation emcee himself took PEOPLE on an exclusive tour of the new Bachelor in Paradise pad.
After last season’s eligible castaways looked for love in beautiful Tulum, Mexico, the show is swinging to the country’s other coast and the equally stunning Playa Escondida hotel in Sayulita, just south of Puerto Vallarta.
In the video, Harrison, 43, shows off the spots where the show’s cast will enjoy bonfires and beaches, not to mention “the most pivotal, important place in all of Bachelor in Paradise: the bar.”
Motioning to the picturesque ocean vista behind the in-house watering hole, Harrison says, “As far as bars go, it’s not the worst bar in the world.”
Would Host Chris Harrison Ever Be the Bachelor?
The tour also includes a cabana-like room that doubles as the stage for the season’s rose ceremonies, the poolside lounge (“A lot of strategy, drama, love – everything is happening around that pool area,” Harrison teases) and a nod upstairs to the lofts where this season’s cast will be sleeping – and no doubt finding other ways to pass the time.
“Who’s staying together in which room? And who’s sleeping together, and who’s not? You’ll have to watch to find out,” Harrison teases.
Bachelor in Paradise premieres Aug. 2 on ABC.
