Sun & Ice: The Scoop on Atlantis’ New Ice Cream Parlor

Summertime calls for beach days and barbecues and, if you’re anything like us, liberal amounts of ice cream. And now, if you’re in the Bahamas this summer, there’s a new spot you can check out to get your frozen novelties fix: Sun & Ice, which just debuted in The Coral at Atlantis on Paradise Island.

Helmed by local chef Wayne Moncur, the parlor is the first element to be unveiled in the completely reimagined and renovated hotel formerly known as the Coral Towers, and has pride of place in the resort’s lobby lounge.

In keeping with Atlantis’ recent efforts to rebrand itself as more authentically Bahamian, the shop will feature flavors of ice cream, sorbet and gelato that are inspired by the 700-island country, combining cream, milk and pure cane sugar with organic Bahamian fruit, teas, herbs, seeds and spices.

Guests can expect to sample inventive island flavors such as soursop and caramelized sugar banana; sapodilla and maple; allspice potato bread; and coconut candy. Sorbet offerings include pineapple and thyme, and there’s also mango skin, guava and sea grape gelato.

“People will be able to walk into Sun & Ice and see our beloved island culture come alive to tell a story,” said Moncur. “They will be able to learn about the local farmer who provided that day’s fresh sapodilla fruit from his tree, and they can taste featured flavors like the one in honor of the Bahamian flag, complete with mangola, black sesame seed and blueberry.”

Sun & Ice opens daily from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The Coral is scheduled to welcome its first guests later this summer.
