The Cove
A 600-suite hotel within a hotel, the Cove is the most luxurious and adult-friendly of the room towers at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort. Kids aren’t banned, but the vibe is definitely grown-up, in a Las Vegas sort of way. Notice this most strikingly at the adults-only Cain Pool, with its DJ-driven party scene, outdoor gaming tables, and mating-ritual pool wear. There’s a sense of sophistication, too, in the two-story lobby that soars above ponds of water lilies. Most suites have a balcony with an ocean view, the higher the better, and all have a sunken living room and marble-floored bathroom. While the Cove is slightly off by itself, with certain amenities available only to Cove guests, all the activities of Atlantis, including those that make adults feel like kids—such as the Abyss or the Leap of Faith waterslides, or the dolphin encounters—are only steps, or a free shuttle ride, away.

Neighborhood Vibe
Atlantis offers so much to do—gambling, celebrity dining, golf, tennis, an unbelievable choice of waterpark and marine-habitat experiences—that many guests don’t bother crossing the bridge from Paradise Island to Nassau and the rest of New Providence Island. For a sense of old, colonial-era Nassau, do cross the bridge for dinner—and a look at one of the world’s largest wine collections—at Graycliff, a hotel whose restaurant is considered one of the Bahamas’ best. Another excellent dining option, which doesn’t require crossing the bridge, is Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Dune restaurant, on the other side of the Atlantis property, at the One & Only Ocean Club.
Need to Know
Rooms: 600 rooms, all suites. From $625 low season, $1,009 high season.
Check-in: 3 p.m.; check-out: 11 a.m.
Dining options:Celebrity chef Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill, where the flavors of the Southwest say “Howdy” to the flavors of the Bahamas, lies between the Cove and its neighboring tower, the Reef. All 21 Atlantis restaurants, though, are close enough to make for a pleasant stroll. Or, if the Leap of Faith is calling, and there’s no room in the schedule for a mealtime amble, the Cove’s buffet-style Mosaic restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Spa and gym details: Experience Balinese and European techniques blended with Bahamian fruits, spices, and minerals at the Mandara Spa. Or use the fitness center’s full range of cardio equipment and strength machines ($15 day pass, even for hotel guests), finished off with a workout in the lap pool, or at the rock-climbing wall. All are located near the Royal Towers. Spa hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., fitness center 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Insider Tips
Who’s it for: Adults who, no matter their age, imagine themselves as twentysomethings, and families whose children have been brought up to act like adults.
Our favorite rooms:The 1,200-square-foot Azure Suites have floor-to-ceiling views of the resort and the ocean, and it is not necessary to ask for a high floor, as they all are on the top five.
Pool with bubble space: While everyone talks about the adults-only Cain Pool, another pool, exclusive to guests at the Cove and the Reef, is the family-friendly Cascades, which is far less crowded than the main Atlantis pools and has easy access to Paradise Beach.

For the Life Aquatic
Go full Steve Zissou at the incredible Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark -- one of the most impressive attractions of its type anywhere in the world.

River rides, water slides, wave pools - if it happens in the water, there's a decent chance you'll find it on the grounds of this massive 141-acre wonderland. Admission is complimentary for guests of the resort, which is reason enough to book a stay. The mile-long river ride never has to end if you don't want it to, while there are plenty of Oceanic attractions to keep you occupied for days on end.

Chase Your Sandy Bliss
Atlantis Paradise Island just so happens to sit on one of the world's most beautiful beaches, and claiming some of the sand for your own is as simple as wandering down to the water's edge and kicking back. Cove Beach, Paradise Lagoon and Atlantis Beach are all within close proximity during your stay, which means chances are, you'll never wander too far. Perfection.
