The Albany, a Luxury resort community
Modern and sleek in design, this resort allows you to be as active or inactive as you want. Enjoy their world class fitness center or play a round of golf on the resort's course, designed by Ernie Els. Or do nothing at all and relax on a lounge chair at one of the pools or beach front, where you can be waited on hand and foot.
Perfect for multi-generational families or a group of friends, accommodations range from the contemporary marina residences, overlooking mega-yachts in the harbor, to comfortable and sophisticated beach houses ranging from two to five bedrooms. Every unit is different and we can help you pick the best one suited to your needs and desires at the time of booking. The Albany would be a great destination for a special anniversary or retirement celebration.
Once the resort is complete in the next few years, it will have a certain draw for well-to-do individuals looking for a retreat in the Bahamian Islands without having to stay at the mega-resort, Atlantis.

The Reef & The Cove Towers
The Reef Atlantis
The beauty of Atlantis is that they can offer accommodations to meet every guest's budget and lifestyle. Although I didn't have the opportunity to stay at Atlantis, I did take part in a guided tour of two of their towers, The Reef & The Cove. I consider The Reef to be a 3 Star property, with suites and rooms that were specifically designed with families in mind; the units all have kitchenettes for those that don't want to dine out all day, every day. I liked the modern and contemporary design of the resort and it's proximity to the pools and beach, which looked lovely from my viewpoint on one of the unit's private balconies. Another great feature is the fact that guests have access to their own pool and beach area specifically for those staying at The Reef & The Cove.
The Cove Atlantis
Located next to The Reef is The Cove, where you will find the resort's most sophisticated and upscale accommodations, along with a price tag to match. Also the newest tower at Atlantis, this is the best choice for couples and families with older children. There is an adults only pool available to guests of the Cove only, which can be a pleasant (and much needed!) escape from the constant activity going on throughout the rest of the resort. The guest rooms and suites have all been recently refurbished; the decor is contemporary and "island elegant." The only downside is that , in order to create the illusion of seclusion, the Cove is located the farthest away from the water parks, dining and shopping venues. However, the upside to this is a quieter area of the resort and fewer crowds on the beach. So if you want to experience Atlantis but not be in the middle of it all, I recommend The Cove.

One&Only ocean club
I found the One&Only to be very chic and fashionable - it is a place to see and be seen but on a very discreet level. The resort grounds were immaculate and beautiful. There are plenty of quiet places to relax and unwind; my personal favorite was the adults only pool pictured below. The Versailles-like gardens in the background were the perfect place for an evening walk before dinner. For brief moment, it really felt like I was in Europe!
My Deluxe Ocean View Room faced the lawn and infinity pool in the recently renovated and historic Hartford Wing. The resort made a welcomed switch from the dark and rich Caribbean decor to a more colorful and light color scheme that is well complimented by the natural beauty of the surrounding resort grounds.
