Apr 08, 2011 Avatar  TravelStore

An ancient civilization has risen from the sea….. Invigorate your imagination. Be inspired. Ignite your soul… this is the most lavish resort in the Caribbean. Located on Paradise Island, Bahamas near Nassau. Atlantis offers experiences to suit all ages – pools, beaches, water slides, dining, marine habitats, a casino, world-class shops and a spa!

From world-class luxury accommodations to moderately-priced comfort, Atlantis Resort gives you a range of choice that will accommodate families from 2-8 people. The Atlantis grounds have 34-acres filled with waterfalls, streams, lagoons and underwater viewing areas. 11 exhibit lagoons and 11 million gallons of water with sea turtles; stingrays and sharks. The resort claims it has the “largest marine habitat in the world”.

Kids will be especially interested in the Atlantis water slides. The steepest rides take off from a five-story Mayan Temple: a 60-ft. vertical drop ends in a clear tunnel inside a shark-filled lagoon. There’s also a pair of Challenger slides where you can race your friends. For the little ones, there are smaller slides.

Atlantis features include a giant casino, 35 restaurants, Mandara Spa, and The Dig – a maze of tunnels and chambers with ruins and underwater views of ancient Atlantis and sea creatures.
