With the winter winds blowing, you might be thinking about getting away to someplace warm.  Atlantis, Paradise Island is a great place for the whole family. Once you are there to experience the resort’s new family-centric Coral hotel and activities.
There are so many direct flights from to Nassau, getting to the Bahamas is easier then ever.
They offer some activities that are really out-of-the-box, fun and engaging. They offer all sorts of ways to help younger ones understand human impact on marine life, and show the value of research and conservation, all while having fun together as a family. Of course, a portion of all proceeds from activity costs go toward the Atlantis Blue Project Foundation, which helps fund these conservation efforts.

The Coral (formerly Coral Towers): Atlantis‘ new family-centric hotel has re-opened following a year-long renovation / revamp:

  • New lobby and guestroom design – Guests can enjoy dessert in the new local Bahamian lobby gelateria (Sun & Ice) and avoid other “hangry” moments by pre-purchasing snacks to be set up in the in-room refrigerator
  • A Kids Concierge is available exclusively to guests of The Coral for kids to customize their vacation experience — think reserving AKA experiences, scheduling family swims at Dolphin Cay and access to kids menus at the various dining venues on property.Babysitting Services can be booked through the Family Trip Planner once on property. All sitters are CPR certified, have childcare qualifications, and have received a thorough background and security check.
    BRAND NEW kids/ family marine programming:

    Sea Turtle Hatchling Release (ages 3+)

    Every year, female Green Sea Turtles lay their eggs on the resort’s Hibiscus Lagoon nesting beaches. Once they hatch (during the late summer and early fall months) guests are able to sign-up and help Atlantis’ team of Aquarists guide the hatchlings to the sea, at dusk. By launching programs like this for guests,Atlantis hopes to continue to understand and care for the population of Green Sea Turtles in the wild, which are endangered species. Cost of the newborn turtle release program is $130.00 USD per person.Sea Turtle Adoption Program (ages 5+)

    Atlantis also gives guests an opportunity to adopt a juvenile Sea Turtle (2-3 years of age) and help to release it into the ocean. Guests choose a name for their new sea turtle and join members of the Atlantis Marine Team on “The Sea Keeper” (Atlantis’ private boat) for an interactive snorkel experience at the turtle release point, where participants are able to swim side by side with their turtle in its natural environment.  At the end of the program, guests receive an official certificate of adoption and photos from the day’s special events. The Sea Turtle Adoption Program takes place on Wednesdays (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM) and is based on turtle availability. Cost of the program is $1,250.00 USD (includes up to four participants).
