Competition Looms for Bahamas Mega Resorts

December 13, 2007 By: Travel Agent Central Contributor Travel Agent

As Atlantis, the mega resort on Paradise Island, readies for the opening next week of The Reef, a huge resort that will ultimately be Atlantis’ competition is preparing for ground breaking.

The Reef, a 22-story tower with “home-like” accommodations with kitchens and living areas, is part of a $1 billion upgrade at Atlantis that also added The Cove accommodations, a water park and a dolphin habitat. Meanwhile, a $4 billion Grand Bahama Island project that will be about three times the current size of Atlantis and have many of the same amenities, along with some additional ones, has entered its early stages.

Ginn Sur Mer, the planned 2,000-acre resort community (pictured), will contain more than 4,400 condominium and hotel units. It is in the phase before ground breaking, during which land is prepared for construction. Construction is still about two years away, and the project isn’t expected to be complete for 15 years. But it will be three times Atlantis’ current size. Ginn Sur Mer will include golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, clubhouses, two large marinas, a private airport, a casino, water and swim pavilions, a beach club and a spa. Visit or call 321-939-4700.

Ginn Resorts, developer of Ginn Sur Mer, signed a management agreement early this year that puts it in control of the resort and marina operations, sales and development of the 73-room Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour. The property will eventually be incorporated into Ginn Sur Mer.
