When the guy next to you on the plane reveals he’s headed to the Bahamas for a pre-bachelor party weekend with the boys, don’t be surprised when you next see him and his buddies checking in at The Cove Atlantis, an Autograph Collection’s soaring, Jeffrey Beers-designed indoor-outdoor lobby. But while many guests are here for a bromantic offshore weekend or a carefree girlfriend getaway, you’ll also spot cool young families. The resort-within-a-resort sits on the edge of family-friendly Atlantis, making it a sophisticated choice for parents whose kids might demand instant water park access and dolphin-side swims, but who prefer for themselves clean-lined, loft-like suites.
Bed & Bath
The exclusive 22-story, 600-suite resort has made beachside indulgence its raison d’être. Every room, each at least 670 square feet, opens onto an ocean-facing balcony, and they all feature King or Queen beds positioned over sunken living areas, and huge spa-like bathrooms with double granite vanities, glass-walled showers and deep soaking tubs.
The one area that’s off limits to youngsters is Cain at The Cove, the adults-only “ultrapool” and beach club reserved exclusively for guests of the hotel. Here, DJs from New York, Miami and beyond spin pop, dance and chill-out tracks, the daybeds and butler-serviced cabanas fill up fast, and the women find that the best way to complete a bikini look is with a pair of stilettos. Expert dealers oversee outdoor gaming tables — a satellite of the 60,000-square-foot casino in the Atlantis main building — and the beach and ocean sit just beyond. After Cain closes, it’s on to tapas at the newly redone SeaGlass lounge. Over at Atlantis, meanwhile, there’s rock shrimp at Nobu, big bets in the casino’s high-limit zone and late nights at the nightclub, Aura. All of which makes for a certain Vegas-meets-South-Beach, “What happens at The Cove stays at The Cove” vibe.
In the Area
The resort offers a lengthy list of activities to keep guests busy on land and sea. Charter a boat for the day from International Yacht Collection, located at the dock master’s office in the Atlantis marina, and explore the surrounding sea and islands or hit the water with an aquatic encounter with rescued dolphins at Atlantis Dolphin Cay. Get beach-ready with a session with fitness guru Mikhail Barnett at the Mandara Spa Fitness Center, then shop for a new ensemble at Escape, The Cove’s on-site resortwear boutique. When you’re ready to relax, book a treatment at Atlantis Balinese-style Mandara Spa (we like the deep tissue massage).
How to Get There
I can’t say enough about this hotel! Five Star is an understatement! From the views in the open air lobby to the koi ponds. The staff is top notch! Keisha Taylor sets the bar and the bar is high! Darril Lord is awesomeness! We had the best time.. unforgettable!!! I can’t wait until I can go back
Stayed at the Cove, certainly expensive, more expensive than the quality deserves, but besides One and Only, one of the nicest. If your a Marriott Gold or Platinum, don't expect anything special, they make that very clear, a few benefits, but little compared to other properties, or what you would be used to at that level of frequent stayer. Asked the concierge to make reservations at a well known off site restaurant, she hadnt heard of it and seemed to be confused as to how to confirm it for us, if we didnt come back the next day, ie leave us a phone message (and endure what seemed to be an ongoing long line up)---in this case not really a concierge, more a booking person for the resort. Restaurants are ok, but go off property to Matisse, Dunes or Gray Cliff. Many big name restaurants like Nobu, but I am constantly amazed how Nobu, Jean George and other big names license their brand and provide what doesn't measure up to their name (didnt Jamie Oliver fail for the same reason). Staff were generally excellent, final night though no turn down service, but that said other days with housekeeping, referred to us by name and incredibly good---variable service would be the theme of this property, for the price variable service isint good enough!
My girlfriend and I visited for 4 days recently. Overall, the room was nice, the resort is clean and beautiful! There's two ways to handle Atlantis - you can either stay at your hotel, in your lane and not wander, or you can wander around and check out all the hotels; we wandered. If you're going to see everything bring some comfy shoes and get ready to walk, because it's quite big. Here's the bottom line, as you face the ocean, rich people to the left, not rich people to the right, we stayed in the middle. Be honest, I didn't care for the people to the left, and I had a blast with the people in the middle and to the right. Also, the layout of the resort is confusing, so get ready to ask directions for a day or two. For me, Atlantis is a great place to take a family, but probably not best for just "couple" time, it's too busy. But with that said, I've checked it off my bucket list and I'm on to the next destination.
