Constantly evolving, Atlantis, a lush, oceanside resort located on Paradise Island in The Bahamas, continues to connect guests to the rich Bahamian culture and its extraordinary marine life and ocean. A dynamic destination that launched 20 years ago as a first-of-its-kind modern marvel of nature and engineering, Atlantis has embarked on a new chapter tied to a meaningful connection with the ocean, Bahamian culture and the spirit of the property’s +7,300 employees. The resort’s new, immersive programming connects guests to the rich history, art, people, food and festivities of The Bahamas.
Atlantis features five distinct hotels in which to stay, from the iconic The Royal to the original The Beach and The Coral to the newly built luxury properties, The Cove and The Reef. The Coral has reopened as a fully redesigned family escape with a new lobby, new rooms, and new amenities, including a new pool and bespoke cabanas designed by Jeffrey Beers, while The Cove recently celebrated a series of new design collaborations, restaurants and guest experiences, each paying homage to Bahamian culture.
The resort is built around Aquaventure, an innovative, 141-acre waterscape of thrilling slides and river rides, pools and white sand beaches. Home to the largest open-air marine habitat in the world, over 50,000 marine animals from 250 species make their home in the ocean fed environments. From unparalleled meeting and convention space to the luxury Atlantis Marina accommodating yachts up to 220 feet in length overlooking Marina Village, a Bahamian marketplace, the Atlantis experiences are endless. Other resort amenities include the 30,000sf tranquil Mandara Spa, Atlantis Kids Adventures (AKA) for children ages 3-12 and CRUSH, a cutting-edge teen club. The resort’s award-winning 18-hole Tom Weiskopf designed golf course, renowned Atlantis Casino and duty free shopping are complemented by the property’s 40 restaurants and lounges with celebrity chef culinary masterpieces including Nobu, by Nobu Matsuhisa; Olives, by Todd English and Fish, by José Andrés.
Dolphin Cay, the resort’s 14-acre marine mammal habitat, is a state-of-the-art education center and animal-rescue rehabilitation hospital whose first residents were 16 rescue dolphins from Hurricane Katrina. Visitors to Dolphin Cay can participate in creative, non-disruptive “interactions” that build real awareness, stir emotion and help fund the resort’s conservation efforts. Through these guest participations and those offered through Atlantis Marine Adventures, over $5 million dollars has been generated to support environmental conservation via the Atlantis Blue Project Foundation (ABPF), a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization.
