Atlantis Paradise Island resort in The Bahamas has launched the first phase of a $20 million transformation at what is currently known as the Coral Towers.

With interiors designed by Bilkey LLinas Design (BLD), once all renovations are complete, the hotel will re-open as The Corals Atlantis.

“This renovation marks a significant step in our long term vision for Atlantis,” said Paul Burke, president and managing director of Atlantis Paradise Island.

“Atlantis consists of five unique hotels from the ultra-luxury of The Cove Atlantis to the casual relaxed atmosphere of the Beach Tower. With The Corals, we will create an expressive and social enclave that goes beyond a rejuvenated room product by introducing a new adults-only pool concept and a modernized lobby experience. These new elements and offerings will appeal to our group customers, as well as couples and young adults looking for a getaway to one of the most beautiful resorts in the world.”

The adults-only Blu Pool will be reimagined by acclaimed interior architect Jeffrey Beers of Jeffrey Beers International (JBI), the same designer who conceived The Cove’s adult-only poolscape Cain at The Cove.

Exclusive to guests of The Corals, the new pool concept will allow day and nighttime usage and will introduce poolside cabanas, floating daybeds, outdoor dining, and a live DJ.

“From a group perspective, we are excited The Corals will reintroduce Atlantis to our group market segment because we will now have a hotel that fits the needs of our groups just 100 feet away from our conference facilities,” said Marcy Miles, executive vice president of sales and marketing.

The initial phase of renovations is slated to be complete by spring 2017. During this initial renovation, some rooms, lobby, and guest amenities will remain open and operational. Atlantis’ anticipated second phase of renovations will be the lobby transformation and new dining concept to begin in early 2017.

The Corals renovation project follows in the footsteps of the resort’s recent property upgrades to venues such as Poseidon’s Table buffet-style restaurant, Plato’s, and Atlantis Casino’s Salon Privé, in addition to refurbished guest suites at The Cove.

With the second week of Goombay Summer Festival (GSF) a mere memory, officials at the Ministry of Tourism are making sure that the economic benefits are felt throughout the festival period.

World Property Journal has reported that Bahamas developer, Replay Destinations Ltd, recently announced the public opening of One Ocean luxury oceanfront condominium residences on Paradise Island.
