The Atlantis Resort and Hotel

Updated on February 20, 2020

Paradise Island is one of the most innovative vacation destinations in the world. Paradise Island is well-suited for singles, couples and families but is enjoyable no matter what your circumstances are. The Atlantis Resort and Casino is one of the premium hotspots of The Bahamas- even cruise ships make excursions to the area! As it is easily accessible from Nassau Airport in the Bahamas, it will take no time for visitors to get to the hotel. This means more time to enjoy the white sand beaches, with a wide range of other facilities. Atlantis offers options for almost everyone's budget and lifestyle, from the choice of room to meals.

History

The Atlantis Resort and Casino was the brainchild of Sol Kerzner. The Atlantis Resort and Casino was constructed on the former Paradise Island Resort & Casino site. After it had filed for bankruptcy in 1993, Kerzner purchased this complex. At the time, the site consisted only of three hotels in need of significant repairs, a golf course, and acres of undeveloped beachfront property.

Atlantis opened after a massive construction project. This distinctive destination contains over 20 million gallons of fresh and saltwater lagoons, pools and habitats. Atlantis may be a jewel, but it is certainly not a hidden one.

The increase in occupancy revitalized the tourism industry of The Bahamas. Kerzner was only beginning to realize the potential for Paradise Island. It has since increased in size and grandeur since its opening.

Accommodations

Atlantis offers different levels of accommodations in well-furnished buildings. The ambiance is five stars quality, no matter what level one chooses. Full kitchen facilities and condo-style living are located in one area as an alternative for large families and for those who seek the comfort of home in a smoke-free environment.

The deluxe ocean resort's rooms are well-furnished, with comfortable beds and exceptional hotel bathroom amenities. A standard room is large and bright with walled flat-screen TVs. The view from the balconies offers picture-perfect views of the property, the lagoons or even the sea.

The evening service by housekeeping will make you feel both refreshed and replenished in your comfortable room.

The Bahamas is one of the most relaxing locations for any vacationer.

Water Activities

Plunge into the refreshing waters of the pools and the ocean; the experience is as good as it gets. Deck chairs are free of charge and abundant. Don’t worry about getting too wet; staff members provide visitors with a new towel after their swim.

The whole family can enjoy intense thrills with the on-site water park, Aquaventure, situated right on the property. Some of the water adventures are a 60-foot-high tower with four water slides and a black hole slide that drops daredevils down 55 feet, other along with wild water rides.

Seekers of a more relaxing water adventure can enjoy a relaxing journey through the lazy river ride. Of course, don’t forget to take advantage of the clear tri-colored water. Set your feet in the sand or stroll along the promenades, taking in a snack at the concession stands. At dusk, movies are ready to be shown at the poolside, complete with popcorn service.

Dining

The variety of options in dining are tailor-made to individual lifestyles. The food, service and ambiance are extraordinary. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely you will dine at the vast array of restaurants. Some of the restaurants at Atlantis may be familiar to you from back home.

Gourmet dining, buffets, French, Italian, seafood, family-style and casual restaurants are just a few of the cuisines and styles. Atlantis can appeal to even the fussiest palate. The overwhelming surroundings will only make your dining experience delightful.

Spa Services

The Mandara Spa can be found in many resorts throughout the world. The Spa is known for utilizing Elemis products, which incidentally originates from the Bahamas. The Elemis line is a favorite for many of the stress releaser spa treatments. The luxurious Mandara offers a comprehensive menu of services. Indulge the steam and sauna rooms situated alongside warm and cold plunge pools in a private lounge area before your treatment begins.

Casino

Soak up the sun during the day and play the night away at the bustling atmosphere of the casino. The casino plays home to over one thousand slots from one penny and upwards. Of course, many guests take pleasure in the tables offering a game of chance of Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Roulette and Caribbean Stud Poker.

The beaches of the Bahamas are easily accessible no matter where you stay.

      This sounds like an interesting holiday location. A friend from the UK enjoyed a great family holiday here a few years ago.
