Playing around Paradise Island, Part 2


Atlantis is not just a hotel, but an entire vacation destination! It’s larger than life! As dramatically fanciful as it is magnificent in scope and concept, the legendary Atlantis, Paradise Island offers a resort experience of mythical proportions.


Here are my Tips for what to do and see while staying at Atlantis, Paradise Island:

  • You can explore the lost ruins of The Dig, a journey into the world of the ancient Atlanteans, complete with an elaborate maze of corridors through underground ruins teeming with a stunning civilization of sea creatures.
  • Or experience the world’s largest marine habitat, second only to Mother Nature, with over 50,000 sea animals spread throughout 11 exhibit lagoons.
  • Then wander the amazing 63 acre waterscape, where you can climb a 6-story Mayan Temple, only to come splashing back down on a choice of five thrilling water slides.
  • Or immerse yourself in Aquaventure, a thrilling water attraction, featuring four exhilarating waterslides and a one mile rapid river experience.
  • There are 20 swimming areas to enjoy, drift down the lazy river ride, or investigate the secrets of the 7-acre snorkeling lagoon.
  • Discover endless action in the entertainment complex, featuring a 50,000 sq. ft. casino, innovatively designed with brilliant glass sculptures and panoramic windows overlooking the waterscape and marina.
  • And for kids, there’s Atlantis Kid’s Club providing children ages 3-12 a fun way to discover the mysteries of Atlantis while making new friends.

Combine all this with a full service spa, a sports center, marina, haute couture shopping and a vast array of restaurants and lounges and you’ll soon discover why Atlantis is not just a hotel, but an entire vacation destination!
