I had the amazing opportunity to stay at the Atlantis resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas this past weekend for a four day getaway with a friend. I can't describe to you in words the wonder of this place.
Three miles of impeccable grounds were covered in flowering tropical plants and scattered with palm trees which made for a lush landscape. Pools throughout the resort, constantly replenished with crystal clear ocean water, housed manta rays, sting rays, barracudas, sharks and a variety of colorful tropical fish. The relaxing sounds of cascading water can be heard from every corner of the property.
The resort features a wide variety of hotel room options from the reasonably priced, "singles" towers, Beach tower and Coral tower, to the higher-end "family" tower, the Royal tower to the private villas for the lavish vacationers. It has two beaches, a casino, a nightclub, a marina, 8 water slides/rides including a 45-minute lazy river ride, snorkeling lessons, scuba lessons, 9 restaurants and high-end shopping.
Now I don't tell you this to make you jealous of my vacation, (though I'm sure you are after hearing about this heaven!) I wanted to share this gem in case you are in the market for a destination wedding venue. This definitely isn't for everyone as I'm sure the amenities do not come at a cheap package price. But if you are looking for a place with amazing hotel rooms, incredible 24/7 service and enough activities to exhaust even the most chipper wedding guests, Atlantis is your place.
