Larger than life, as dramatically
fanciful as it is magnificent in scope and concept, the
$850-million Atlantis, Paradise Island is a glorious and
wonderfully playful celebration of the legends of the lost
city of Atlantis reflected in unique entertainment attractions
such as The Dig, a fanciful journey into the world of the
ancient Atlanteans, water rides, original artworks and in
the design and decor throughout the resort. Atlantis is
a resort experience that is truly in keeping with Sun International’s
reputation for creating not just a hotel, but an entire
vacation destination, in fact, the world’s largest
island resort destination.
The $600-million Royal Towers, which opened in December
1998, with 1,201 guest accommodations set in two majestic
towers, plus the Coral and Beach Towers provide the foundation
for a 2,300-room resort that is as much fun for every kind
and age of traveler as it is breathtaking and bold.
Paradise Island, located on the northern edge of Nassau
(New Providence Island), is a short ride from downtown Nassau
and the airport. The island, formerly called Hog Island,
is 826 acres, almost 70% of which is now owned by Sun International.
Paradise Island became a tourism destination in 1921.
