If you prefer to choose the best from the best, you will love the Atlantis, created by hotel superstar Sol Kerzner at a cost of over $250 million.
You will stay in one of the three areas (Coral Towers, Beach Tower, and Villas), in pink buildings rising up to a maximum of 12 floors. All units have either two double beds or one king-size bed, plus a bar and a balcony, plus the usual amenities of first-class hotels. Rooms are available for non-smokers and for those who are disabled. The central attraction of the resort (and quite a phenomenon indeed; it should be visited even if you are not staying at Atlantis) is a fourteen-acre Waterscape containing a living saltwater habitat (the world's largest outdoor aquarium) hosting more than 100 species of marine life in six lagoons. One section is the Predator Lagoon, stocked with several kinds of sharks and featuring its own underwater pedestrian walkway, through an immense glass tunnel.
There are also waterfalls, five swimming pools, a quarter-mile river ride, and a 100-foot suspension bridge over it all. The hotel has 1,147 rooms in all.
The Waterscape at the new Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island is now the number one tourist target in the area. Next in popularity is the Coral Island Underwater Observatory; and after that, visitors go to Rawson Square and its outdoor market, the Parliament Building, library and museum.
Outside Nassau and Paradise Island, you might try the Atlantis Submarines (tickets through your hotel) based on the west end of New Providence Island. They actually submerge below the sea, safely and pleasantly.
Deluxe high rise with 2300 rooms and casino is situated on the beach. Three towers make up the complex, the Beach, Coral and the newest one - Royal Towers, which unique features include: thirty-four-acre waterscape, the world's largest outdoor aquarium, 11 exhibit lagoons with over 200 species of tropical fish, cascading waterfalls with a rope suspension bridge, Predator Lagoon with sharks, barracudas and stingrays, including a 100-ft viewing tunnel, and a lazy river ride for rafting.
