Atlantis, Paradise Island resort in The Bahamas is embarking on four distinctive renovation and redesign projects. These projects are just the beginning of Atlantis’ long term plan to enhance the property and guest accommodations, including a complete renovation and rejuvenation of other room accommodations and public spaces.
All suites at The Cove will be refurbished beginning in early December 2015. The Cove’s stylish and upscale guest experience will be enhanced further by new headboards, carpets, and colorful wall art, with the renovation slated to be completed by mid-May 2016. The resort will remain fully operational throughout the project, with a rolling renovation plan in order to minimize guest disruption.
New Culinary Offerings
Beginning this summer, two unique dining spaces are undergoing renovations to create a fresh and more modern flavor.
Dual renovations have begun for the family-favorite Marketplace restaurant and the nearby Plato’s lounge. Marketplace encompasses buffet-style dining and made-to-order food stations, while Plato’s offers casual seating for guests to enjoy cocktails and light bites.
Once completed, Marketplace will re-open as Poseidon’s Table and offer a buffet dining concept with an entirely refreshed design. Poseidon’s Table will introduce new large, round booth and banquette seating, designed to accommodate 300 guests. This space will be enhanced by new fixtures and elements that embrace the notion of being in the sea – corals reefs and underwater air bubbles.
The interactive buffet and station area will be framed by stained walnut shelves, hand-blown bubble lighting, sconces with chrome displays and glowing lanterns suspended above the countertops. The signature buffet stations will be comprised of glass mosaic tiles, fashioned in a circular pattern, while the wooden-esque floors will be complemented by white porcelain, marbled countertops.
Plato’s, the lounge located in the heart of Royal Towers, is undergoing a change in both layout and design. The transformed space will be themed with light tones for a beach-like atmosphere that welcomes guests at all times of the day.
There will be four unique settings within the overall space of Plato’s. The central bar acts as the most prominent feature and beckons guests to enjoy a drink as they relax in shagreen-covered chairs below the four large TVs sitting against an onyx backdrop above. Formed by two inwards-facing horseshoe surfaces, the bar seats 40 patrons and is adorned by leather-wrapped panels with chrome detail.
Beyond the bar sits a raised lounge area, bordered by a wall of arched windows. Additional seating for 60 is spread among eclectic furniture with teal and coral-hued upholstery, while the lounge walls are dominated by custom graphic, water-centric murals. Located in the right-most corner is a small stage, dedicated to entertainment and equipped with special lighting for evening performances. Adjacent to this elevated area sits the “library lounge”, formed by light walnut-wooded walls polished chrome, and dark bronze metals.
