It was rainy during my only full day in Nassau, meaning no lazing about the pool. Instead, I decided to trek over to the famous Atlantis resort to wander the premises.
I had often heard Atlantis compared to a Vegas hotel. Well, I’m no fan of Vegas, so I expected to feel the same way about the Atlantis. Wrong! It was impressive, folks. And I’ve seen a lot of hotels in my days, too.
Not to mention a river rapids ride that shoots you right through a shark-filled tank! As I was gazing into the very aquarium, who should pass through but Anthony Anderson and his girlfriend.
With all the crazy reflections caused by the glass, you’ll just have to trust me on this one. The funny thing is I had no clue it was him and just happened to snap his picture out of intrigue for the ride!
The grounds were so sprawling that I legitimately got lost and had to take the shuttle back to the main building. I started off in the Reef, the more family-friendly part of the resort, and found myself in the Cove, the uber-swank couple-y section. If I went back to stay, I’d definitely choose the latter! Also, there are a number of owners at the Harborside Resort at Atlantis who are looking to rent their timeshares online, which seems like an affordable way to stay here.
Strike that. I’d stay in the 4,740-square-foot Bridge Suite for a mere $25,000 a night.
