The Atlantis megaresort in The Bahamas is planning to reopen its doors on July 7, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The prominent Bahamas has targeted a reopening date of July 7, less than a week after The Bahamas officially reopens for tourism at the beginning of July.
The Atlantis Paradise Island resort will be launching a multi-phased reopening plan that will begin with the opening of two of the property’s resorts: The Royal, East and West and the Harborside Resort.
Atlantis is reopening the property with a large-scale “Clean & Safe Promise” that implements the new “normal” of hospitality amid the COVID-19 age — with social distancing, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols, expedited check-in and QR-code-powered guest information, among others.
That also means Atlantis is encouraging guests to wear masks in all public areas.
“This carefully managed reopening comes with enhanced health, safety, and cleanliness procedures in place,” Atlantis Paradise Island said in a statement. “So, as we enjoy our resort together again, everyone will need to follow local health officials and Atlantis safety guidelines.”
Most of the property’s main attractions will be open, too: the Ocean Club Golf Course, the Mandara Spa and Fitness Center and the Atlantis Marina – along with the property’s signature casino and, of course, the beach.
The resort’s signature water park will reopen, with a staggered scheduled that includes the Mayan Temple open five days a week, and the Power Tower and its attendant rides open on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Pools will have a reduced seating capacity, with physical distancing in place as it will be across the resort.
Atlantis will also be opening 18 eateries, ranging from “quick bites” options like Ben & Jerry’s and Starbucks to fine-dining restaurants like Nobu by Nobu Matsuhisa and the Seafire Steakhouse.
Atlantis has also said all of its meeting and events spaces will be “open and available,” with social-distancing protocols.
The opening of the Royal and Harborside means other popular options like The Coral, The Cove and others will be part of later-phases of the reopening plan.
