Paradise Island, Bahamas-Atlantis Resort

Atlantis Resort-Pradise Island, Bahamas

Paradise Island is a dedicated resort island of pure excitement and enjoyment connected to Nassau by two bridges. The island's purpose and existence is to entertain and provide incredible vacation and recreation to its visitors, with resorts, hotels, world class restaurants, shops, golf club, an aquarium, and casino, Spa, and water attractions. With its unique murals, sculptures, fountains, and the Great Hall of Waters, the beachfront Atlantis Resort and related Royal Towers offers easy access to Atlantis' new Aquaventure, a sprawling waterscape of pools, waterslides, and rivers.

Aquaventure also houses a mile-long river ride and 11 rock climbing walls. With a focus on conservation and education, Dolphin Cay offers interactions with 20 bottlenose dolphins in their own habitat. Guests can also observe more than 50,000 marine mammals at Atlantis' Marine Habitat. Balinese-inspired treatments are available in the two-story Mandara Spa's 35-treatment rooms. An outdoor marketplace, Marina Village, showcases local culture throughout its 20 shops.
