Seeking Sun: Nassau

The sun and beaches of Nassau Paradise Island has built the destination’s reputation as one of the premier vacation destinations. 

Nassau, Bahamas

Atlantis is home to more than 25 restaurants and various celebrity chef outposts, and varied outdoor activities, including poolside cabanas, spa, dolphin interactions, marine habitat tours, and fun in the 141-acre water park. Atlantis — a family vacation mecca — is truly a excellent destination resort for couples, girlfriend getaways, and more.

Atlantis debuted several new renovations earlier this year, including Salon Privé, a new private gaming lounge in the Atlantis Casino (the largest in the Bahamas), new dining concepts at The Royal Towers, including a buzzy bar, Plato’s, situated at the heart of the resort. These renovations are the latest in the resort’s comprehensive two-year enhancement and development project.

Notable Chefs Nobuyuki Matsuhisa and Jean George Vergichten have opened outposts in Paradise Island, respectively, with a Nobu at Atlantis and Dune Restaurant at the One&Only Ocean Club. Speaking of high end, Graycliff Hotel has a renowned dining program, including the five-star Graycliff Restaurant and an exclusive wine cellar containing more than 250,000 bottles — with wines dating back to 1727.
