    Islands Journey to Atlantis on October 2007

    We traveled to Bahamas to see the Incredible Atlantis Resort and surrounding properties. Atlantis is located on one of 700 islands in the Bahamas called "Paradise Island. We were able to see all the properties on Paradise Islands. The Beach Tower is located on the east side of Atlantis and is the first tower that was built. The Coral Tower is the second tower that was built. Both of these towers are overlooking the water park as well as the blue Caribbean Sea. We stayed at THE ROYAL TOWER; this tower was built third and has the largest aquarium in the world. Atlantis also has a "casino".

    One of the newest additions is called "THE COVE" all I can say is WOW, state of the art rooms, Mahdara Spa, art work, bathrooms, pool and most important this resort is adults only. The other newest addition is called "THE REEF," This tower built for families or groups of friends who want to get away but still have the comforts of a condominium in paradise. The amazing Dolphin Encounter is also located in this area of Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas.

    All I can say is "Amazing". Atlantis is one of the few resorts that offer a full water park experience. Atlantis has over 20 swimming pools, thrilling water slides, and a lazy river that takes about 45 minutes to complete, a lagoon where you can rent water cycles or small canoes. Atlantis also has some amazing aquariums through out the resort. The best thing about Atlantis whether it is day or night there is always something to see or do.

    Islands learning conference,

    Kerri
