Probably the best family resort developed to date is the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. The resort is located on Paradise Island, adjacent to the capital city of Nassau.
The Bahamas are located off the east coast of Florida and are comprised of around 700 islands and cays extending over 500 miles. The warm climate, crystal clear blue waters, tropical landscape, world class shopping and luxury hotels make the Bahamas one of the most popular tourist destinations. There are plenty of sports and aquatic activities to enjoy including golf, diving, snorkeling, boating and fishing. The capital city of Nassau has some of the best food, drinks, shopping and nightlife to make it an ultimate vacation destination.
Nestled on the Caribbean Sea minutes from downtown Nassau is the majestic Atlantis Resort. Atlantis is a water theme resort based on the mythical city that sank without a trace thousands of years ago. This resort has endless activities for every family member. Peter Diaz, President & CEO of VoyageMonkey.com Online Travel, says The Atlantis Resort is a destination in itself. Guests are provided with all they need to have a relaxing fun filled vacation without leaving the resort. You don’t want to leave. The resort is entertaining for children and adults. There are not too many resorts that match the family amenities offered by Atlantis.
The resort sits on one of the best beaches in the Bahamas, Cabbage Beach. Along these 3 miles of pristine soft white sand, resort guests can soak up the sun, snorkel, parasail, jet-ski and participate in multitudes of water and beach activities. For a more carefree beach experience, the 7-acre Paradise Lagoon offers swimming, sunbathing and a variety of water sports. Continuing the water theme, guests can partake in the Leap of Faith: a 60-foot drop down a Mayan temple water slide. This thrilling wet ride takes you through the resorts spectacular aquarium. The magnificent aquarium is a center piece of the resort. The resort has a total of 141 acres of waterslides, a quarter-mile lazy river ride and several pools. You can even fulfill your dream of swimming with friendly playful Dolphins at Dolphin Cay.
For your nightlife entertainment, the Atlantis boasts the largest casino in the Caribbean. At the Atlantis you will find a world class gaming experience with 100 table games including Craps, Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, and Caribbean Stud Poker. There is also a Race & Sports book. The casino offers over 1,000 of the newest slot machines each equipped with state of the art player tracking system (with denominations from a penny to $100). Enjoy the convenience of using your room key to play.
Atlantis features 21 restaurants and 19 bars & lounges offering everything from fine dining to quick-and-easy favorites. Two of the Bahamas best restaurants are located at the resort: the Bahamian Club and Villa Este. The Bahamian Club serves international and French cuisine and is known for its fine cuts of meats. Villa Este serves some of the best Italian cuisine in the Bahamas.
If you do desire to leave the resort, downtown Nassau and its neighboring resort areas are just minutes away for your enjoyment. The Bahamas proximity to the United States and its safe track record makes it attractive for U.S. tourists. You just can’t go wrong with this family vacation choice.
