Atlantis Paradise Island: Defining Paradise, One Renovation At A Time

Paradise is defined as an imaginary place or state of utter perfection and happiness. But to some there might be a slight inaccuracy in the word “imaginary.” While we all have our own ideas of what paradise is or should be, that doesn’t mean paradise doesn’t exist. Truth be told, it does. And for me, after stepping foot on the white-sand beaches of Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas — it was paradise has been found.

For more than two decades, Atlantis has figured prominently in the global hospitality industry. Through Atlantis’ immersive programming, guests have the opportunity to dive into the rich history, art, people, food, and festivities of the exhilarating Bahamian culture while remaining dedicated to sustainability and environmental conservation.

Including the landmarked pink Royal Towers and Bridge Suite that stands at the forefront of the property, Atlantis features five unique stays with the newest being the all-suite luxury accommodations at The Cove, and boy, are these something to write home about.

From the moment you arrive on the property, you are greeted with the beautifully designed landscape and monumentally grand entrances that call for an instant breath of relaxation. Upon exploring what Paradise Island has to offer with the user-friendly Atlantis mobile app, you’ll be presented with the thrill of the 141-acre action-packed Aquaventure waterscape, the world’s largest open-air marine habitat, five miles of beachfront, 11 luxurious pools, the award-winning Mandara Spa and more.

What’s to come

Substantial growth on Atlantis Paradise Island is underway with the recent announcement of multimillion-dollar renovations and partnerships. What’s to come for the already notable beachfront resort includes the redevelopment of The Beach Tower and all Royal Tower guestrooms and suites, a reimagined Atlantis Casino, and the addition of a third Michelin-starred chef restaurant to its already premier and, may I mention, an extremely delicious roster of celebrity chef culinary masterpieces, including Fish by José Andrés; Nobu by Nobu Matsuhisa; and Olives, by Todd English.

The Royal 

At this time, all of the Royal Towers East rooms have already seen a complete renovation both in the rooms and bathrooms, with Royal Tower West under construction. Design elements in the room encapsulate the fresh natural seascape of aquamarine waters, pure white-sand beaches, and the “rain forests of the sea,” coral reefs, allowing guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy the very heart of the Bahamas.

To further express the nature of, specifically, a women’s paradise is the bathroom. A bathroom that allows for a flawless blend of foundation, beach bronze glow, and finishing touches to an all-natural day or extravagant, pre-Aura Night Club look. Keeping the needs of hotel guests in mind mixed with the modern design, Atlantis placed an extra-large vanity mirror in every bathroom so you can strut and preen to your heart’s content.

The Cove

Heading over to The Cove at Atlantis, there have been exciting additions to the palatial resort that is nestled between two private beaches. The Cove is equipped with 600 luxury suites with floor-to-ceiling ocean views. Guests staying in select suites are granted access to food and drink service at the reconceptualized Lapis Club Lounge, on the 22nd floor.

Past the rooms are the exclusive adults-only pool for couples as well as three other kid-friendly pools for families just steps away from The Cove Beach. Who you take on your vacation with you will undoubtedly determine which aspects and offerings of the resort you will seek out and covet, but good odds it will be the adults-only pool as it is the hottest locale across all properties. This exclusive pool only allows The Cove hotel guests to have access to the 20 private cabanas, stylish daybeds, poolside games, and an expansive food menu.

The Sapphire Services Program

To further enhance the already elegant retreat experience provided by The Cove is the Sapphire Services program, which offers adventurous guests opportunities both on and off the property. Currently, guests can immerse themselves in behind-the-scenes tours at Dolphin Cay and Atlantis’ fish hospital, take day trips to nearby family islands by boat, participate in turtle release excursions to Rose Island and so much more.

With Sapphire Services, Atlantis and The Cove guests can also experience off-property “Bahamas at Heart” excursions where they will absorb the exclusiveness and sheer peacefulness of The Bahamas outer islands via Coco Bahama Air as well as a parade of other day activities. Whether you want to swim with the pigs of Exuma, dive into a sea-to-table family-styled lunch on Kamalame Cay under remote Andros island’s famous palapa, or set sail into the crisp blue waters, the choice is yours.

Now and looking beyond the renovations, Atlantis Paradise Island will continue to attract guests from near and far, a testament to the resort’s paradise vibe being the ultimate real deal.
