Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas

Atlantis Casino and Hotel, the largest hotel property in the Bahamas, is a one-of-a-kind vacation destination. With unique attractions that evoke the lost world of Atlantis, the resort welcomes visitors into an entertaining land of fun and fantasy.  The Legend of Atlantis: Mentioned in the works of Plato, Atlantis was a vast island empire that stretched, some say, all the way from the Mediterranean Sea to the Americas. In Atlantis, Poseidon, god of the oceans, allegedly ruled over a utopian society of harmony and abundance as far back as 10 centuries BC. According to legend, around 1,500 BC, the mighty Atlantis civilization was destroyed by a massive earthquake -- and it disappeared forever beneath the ocean named for it, the Atlantic. Ever since, romantics and scientists have searched for its traces but turned up empty-handed.  Based on the legend of Atlantis, this namesake resort creatively and playfully interprets this lost world, adding loads of luxe and gallons of glitz to the mythical history.
