To Stay - The Lost City of Atlantis

The Atlantis Paradise Island is a resort and waterpark located on Paradise Island, The Bahamas. A complete megasaurus motel in every sense of the word, The Atlantis Paradise contains some of the most creative interiors, intriguing aesthetics and elaborate waterscapes of any hotel in the world...

This creatively designed blockbuster of a resort is not only a hotel destination but also a theme park in its own right. So before you read on, it’s best to put aside any ideas of having a quiet and relaxing holiday. Instead, embrace the cheese, the razzle dazzle and the hyper everything.

It has all the usual mods and cons of any luxury resort, plus a few other casual additions like a 14-acre dolphin habitat, a measly 20 swimming pools, a 141 acre water slide theme park, 3 private white sand beaches and a tiny 45 foot catamaran to take you and your family snorkelling.

The kids education programs are comprehensive too, enabling you to lay back and relax or make use of the 30,000s square foot luxury spa on site. That’s a lot of massage.

In building the resort, more than $800 million was spent to bring to life the myth and legend of the lost city of Atlantis.

As you can imagine the original scope and scale of the project was mind-boggling: to create the world’s largest open-air marine environment of 11 million gallons, home to 50,000 sea creatures representing 200 species; new lagoons and countless waterfalls; a spectacular Mayan Temple Waterslide complex; 6 swimming areas and a $15 million Marina.
