“Atlantis! The spectacular Atlantis Bahamas resort on Paradise Island wasn't designed to be visited. Atlantis was designed to be experienced! With the world's largest marine habitat, the largest casino in the Bahamas (and the Caribbean,) a 15 million dollar marina, lagoons, waterfalls and the underwater ruins of Atlantis itself... vacationing at the Atlantis Bahamas Resort, Paradise Island, has achieved a distinctive combination of comfort and adventure unlike any other vacation destination.”
