Bahamas: The Cove & The Reef Atlantis
With Nassau just over a two hour flight from many U.S.
cities, you can be in the ultimate beach paradise in no time
at all. The Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas is
the only resort in the Caribbean that’s a destination unto
itself with its spectacular waterpark, a dolphin encounter
program and even a walk-through exploration of the Lost
City of Atlantis.
Guests also have the unique opportunity to explore an
extraordinary collection of marine habitats and aquarium
exhibits that include caves, lagoons, coral formations and
underwater ruins showcasing marine life like sea lions and
dolphins as well as sharks, rays, eels, barracuda and more.
While you’ll have access to a wide variety of water activities like snorkeling and fishing, there is plenty to do on
land here as well. Enjoy a round of golf with breathtaking
ocean views on a championship course or visit the Mandarin Spa for the ultimate in pampering, bringing traditional
European therapies together with natural elements that are
indigenous to The Bahamas.
Both the Reef and Cove are exclusive parts of Atlantis,
with guests gaining access to the Cascades pool, away from
the hordes of guests found in the other resort areas. The
Reef offers elegant studios and suites with beautiful ocean
views and the comforts of home including a fully stocked
kitchen, private balconies and access to a powdery-white
sand beach. The Cove is even more upscale, with ultra-
luxurious ocean-view suites that sit atop two of the most
magnificent beaches on the planet.
While few people head to a tropical paradise just for the
food, you may be surprised to find such a wide array of
outstanding dining options with 21 restaurants and 19 bars
and lounges. There is something to satisfy all tastes, from
Southwestern fare with a Bahamian twist to traditional
French, Asian fusion, seafood delicacies and much more.
There is enough here to sample a different culinary experience every day of your vacation!
