The Bahamas’ Atlantis Paradise Island resort is making major upgrades, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The resort is going “bigger and bolder in 2022,” with plans for multimillion-dollar renovations and a number of new partnerships at Nassau and Paradise Island’s signature resort. 

In what the property is calling “massive upgrades and striking enhancements,” it is redeveloping all of its Royal Tower guest rooms and suites; reimagining its casino; and adding a new Michelin-star chef to its already-broad culinary lineup. 

That includes renovation of all guest rooms and suites in the Royal East Tower, which will be complete by this summer; followed by newly-renovated rooms in the Royal West Tower.

“Design elements celebrate the natural seascape of aquamarine waters, white-sand beaches, and coral reefs to inspire a soothing environment where guests can relax and unwind,” according to Atlantis. 

Atlantis is also undertaking an expansive renovation of its iconic Bridge Suite next year. 

On the culinary front, Atlantis will be adding a new eatery from renowned Chef Michael White, who will add a new eatery called Paranoia at The Cove, expected to open this year. 

Another restaurant, the Mediterranean-accented Pita, will open near the Aquaventure water park. 

The resort’s Splashers water park, aimed at younger guests, will add new slides, climbing areas and other touches later this year; and The Cove, the luxury all-suite hotel at Atlantis just debuted the new Lapis Club Lounge, which has a full-service bar, hors d’oeuvres, daily breakfast and spectacular views of the island. 

And then there’s the casino, which will undergo a refresh that includes modern finishes, shimmering textures, celestial fixtures, and flowing lines echoing the refractions of the sea.” 

“We could not be more excited for all of the developments coming to Atlantis this year,” said Audrey Oswell, President and Managing Director of Atlantis Paradise Island. “With these incredible additions, we are continuing Atlantis’ legacy of offering guests endless, immersive experiences during their stay.” 

The news comes after the announcement earlier this year that Groot Hospitality’s David Grutman and Pharrell Williams would be transforming the property’s Beach Tower into a new “oasis-within-an-oasis” called Something Else, with 400 rooms and suites and plans to debut in 2024.
