Bahamas hotels - Atlantis- Paradise Island Coral Towers
  • Flanked by 11 million gallons of water attractions, this hotel lies between Atlantis' other two hotels in location and price.

Location

Paradise Island (Bahamas)
Located across a high bridge from Nassau, Paradise Island is a great beach and watersports destination that's still a quick taxi ride from the business, shopping, and history of Nassau. All accommodations options are equally convenient, and the resort community of Atlantis is the center for dining, entertainment, and gambling.

General information

What to expect: Occupying 34 acres of 4-mile-wide Paradise Island, which connects to downtown Nassau via two bridges, the Atlantis resort dates to the 1960s, when it was called Paradise Island and operated largely as a casino destination. Adopting the mythical Lost Continent of Atlantis motif in the 1990s, the resort expanded into a family destination featuring vast water-park and marine-life attractions.

One of three hotels, Atlantis offers a health-and-beauty spa, a fitness center, children's and teen clubs, a nightclub, a comedy club, 21 restaurants, the 50,000-square-foot casino, and shopping malls, and provides access to 3 miles of Atlantic Ocean beach and a private golf course.

This hotel lies in the middle of the resort between the other two hotels and also offers middle-price accommodations. Guestrooms are a bit larger than the Beach Tower's and a bit smaller than the Royal Tower's.

Amenity highlights: Although all Atlantis' facilities and attractions are readily accessible from all three hotels, this one contains the resort's library and Discovery Channel Camp, a children's education-and-activity center. Adjacent to the hotel are Lazy River (tube) Ride, River (swimming) Pool, Poseidon's Kid's Pool, Lagoon Pool, and Goombay Water Slide & Baths—a long slide and a series of spas cut into an artificial-rock formation. Also adjacent are the marine-life exhibits Hibiscus Lagoon; Seagrapes Lagoon and viewing tunnel; Stingray Lagoon; Water's Edge Lagoon; Adventure Trail; and Predator Lagoon, Reef, and underwater viewing tunnel, as well as Predator Falls and a rope suspension bridge spanning Predator Lagoon.

Insider tip: This hotel is the closest hotel to Paradise Lagoon, a 7-acre saltwater swimming, snorkeling, and water-sports area with direct access to the open ocean and beaches on both sides.

Property amenities

Featuring a cool interior of white marble, sisal rugs, Balinese artifacts, and aqua acrylics, the 11,500-square-foot Asian-theme Mandara Spa includes a unisex rain shower, steam room, and sauna; men's and women's relaxation lounges; and a 30-foot-diameter heated, jetted, saltwater Thalassotherapy pool surrounded by cushioned lounge chairs in an open-air pavilion. Hair and nail care and waxing are offered in addition to massage, assorted body treatments, and facials.

A 9,000-square-foot fitness center (fees charged) contains cardio equipment, weight-training machines, free weights, and steam rooms and offers classes such as aerobics, yoga, Pilates, and kickboxing as well as personal trainers. Outside the center is a 95-foot lap pool.

Unusual in that it permits natural light to enter, the 24-hour, 50,000-square-foot casino features four large Dale Chihuly glass sculptures and includes a race-and-sports book in addition to table games (baccarat, roulette, craps, blackjack, and Caribbean poker) and slot and video-poker machines. A high-limit area contains Baccarat Lounge , which features Champagnes, caviar, and chilled seafood. Opening into the casino is Dragons Nightclub , site of nightly live dance music and highlighted by a black-granite bar and video wall.

Staffed by trained counselors, Discovery Channel Camp offers half-day, full-day, and night sessions (fees charged) for children age 4–12. Facilities consist of a grotto room furnished with a "shipwreck" and a "beach" for finding buried treasure with kid-size metal detectors; a science lab housing snakes, hamsters, fish, and birds and equipped with sharks' jawbones, microscopes for analyzing discoveries during field trips, and telescopes for stargazing at night; and technology providing educational computer programs, Web-site-creation lessons, and digital cameras for field trips.

Open to teens age 13–17, Club Rush (cover charge) consists of a front room equipped with computer games and Internet-access computers and showing DVD movies and a back room offering a dance floor and DJ music. Decor includes black ceilings, draped smoked-glass windows, and leopard-print couches. Supervision is continuous. (Pre-teens age 7–12 have the club from 4:30 PM to 7 PM).

Five waterslides are built into the six-story Mayan Temple . Chief among them is The Leap of Faith, a 60-foot, nearly vertical plunge that ends by carrying daredevils through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark-filled lagoon. Also popular is a 48-foot corkscrew slide transporting tube riders through the Temple's dark core. Shorter, gentler children's slides connect the Temple's many cascading pools.

Atlantis offers 10 freshwater swimming areas and Paradise Lagoon , a 7-acre saltwater swimming, snorkeling, and water-sports area with direct access to the open ocean and beaches on both sides.

In addition to 11 lagoons (lighted at night) constituting the world's largest tropical marine habitat that are home to 50,000 fish and sea creatures visible day and night from above and underwater, the resort offers many specialized exhibits, including turtles, seahorses, jellyfish, lobsters, crabs, lionfish, piranhas, and 6-foot moray eels. Children enjoy a touch-tank filled with exotic creatures.

At night and on rainy days, a theater in the resort's convention center screens complimentary first-run movies. Tuesdays through Sundays, Jokers Wild Comedy Club (cover charge; minimum age 17) presents a revolving cast of stand-up comedians.

A two-story, glass-wall, 1,000-volume library includes four computer stations offering 15 minutes of complimentary Internet access per guest daily.
