While Paradise Island is full of attractions, guests at the Atlantis Resort can find plenty to do without ever leaving the premises. The facilities at the Atlantis feature restaurants, shops, pools, beaches, a spa, a nightclub, and marine habitats, just to name a few.
The resort presents a number of dining opportunities, from casual to elegant. The restaurants on the premises include Nobu, Fish by Jose Andres, Casa D’Angelo, the Bahamian Club, and Olives. For the gourmet restaurants, a reservation and appropriate attire is required.
Guests at Atlantis can experience marine life in a number of ways. Guests can interact with dolphins in an 11-acre habitat at Dolphin Cay or watch feeding times at many of the various marine habitats.
The Atlantis Resort provides a number of activities to fill guests’ days. Besides visiting the beautiful beaches, guests can choose from a number of pools. More adventurous guests can visit Aquaventure, a newly developed, 63-acre waterscape that houses waterslides ranging from the tame river-style ride to the terrifying Leap of Faith, which travels through a shark tank.
While the resort’s tropical setting encourages water-based activities, there are many other recreational options as well. The Mandara Spa offers a number of treatments for guests at the Atlantis. There is also a movie theater that screens three shows a day, many of which are family friendly. Golfers should visit the famed Ocean Club Golf Course. The Marina at Atlantis is yet another attraction to seek out. The harbor accommodates luxury yachts, and its surrounding village offers a number of shopping and dining opportunities.
The resort also has a number of venues to visit at night. There is a casino, a comedy club, and a Vegas-style nightclub on the property.
The Coral Towers have just been completely remodeled. We are proud to unveil The New Coral, dedicated to multigenerational family fun.
From the unconventional flavors of the Bahamas at Sun & Ice in the lobby lounge, to completely renovated rooms and the sparkling poolscape with cabanas, swim-up bar to grab ice pops and signature drinks – the NEW centerpiece of Atlantis sits beside the white sand beaches of Paradise Island. The Coral has the closest proximity to The Marina Village – filled with new Bahamian dining and cultural features, with options for
everyone in the family.
Unplug. Connect. Rediscover The Coral at Atlantis.

Just off the coast of Florida, there’s a place where the beaches are breathtaking, the vegetation is lush, and the weather is as warm and inviting as the people.
Starting 60 miles off the coast of South Florida and stretching as far south as Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas has over 700 islands, about 30 of which have permanent settlements. Set in the most beautiful, crystal blue waters, these islands share a rich history and culture. Originally called “baja mar”, for the Spanish term meaning shallow waters or sea, the name “Bahamas” effectively means “The Island of the Shallow Sea”
December is the perfect time to visit one of the Bahama’s many spectacular tropical Islands because the weather is wonderful (averages 78F) and the rates are down!
Paradise Island offers visitors the opportunity to experience the Bahamian culture through unique dining, shopping, and outdoor activities set to the backdrop of beautiful beaches and tropical weather.
Dining on Paradise Island allows guests to experience new flavors and ingredients specific to Bahamian culture. Restaurants prepare local ingredients, such as grouper, snapper, and conch, using spices and techniques influenced by the area’s rich British, Spanish, and West Indian history. Diners can choose the elegance of the five-star restaurant Graycliff or the comfort of many smaller restaurants.
The Bahamian culture is also evident in the shopping opportunities on Paradise Island. There are many shopping districts on the island, each offering distinct souvenirs. Marina Village houses boutiques offering resort wear. Festival Place is a wonderful place to find local crafts, including those made of conch. Straw hats and bags, woodcarvings, and other souvenirs can be found at the Straw Market. Those looking to buy luxury items, such as jewelry or perfume, should find their way to Bay Street. These items can all be purchased duty free.
Shopping and dining in the Bahamas has an added convenience for those visiting from the United States. While the official currency is the Bahamian dollar, U.S. currency is accepted throughout Paradise Island. The Bahamian dollar and the U.S. dollar are equivalent in value. Most major credit cards and traveler’s checks are also accepted.
Paradise Island is also home to beautiful early Colonial architecture. The history of British Colonial rule can be seen in many of the buildings. The Ministry of Tourism offers walking tours of the area that showcase some of the more historical sites.
