PLEASE NOTE UPDATED LOCATIONS
Main Shows Friday and Saturday nights will be held at the Imperial Ballroom:
The official Paradise Island forecast indicates strong winds this week, which will delay the building of the Dancing on the Sand stage and risk the safety of our crew. Coupled with a high probability of intermittent weekend rain, our Friday and Saturday night concerts will be relocated to The Atlantis’ incredible Imperial Ballroom to ensure all of the bands are able to perform as planned and that all of our guests have a safe and enjoyable weekend of music.
All of the other great Dancing on the Sand events are planned to continue outdoors as planned. As the forecast can change quickly in the Caribbean, we are able to pivot those venues on much shorter notice. If Mother Nature has other ideas, we too have other plans, ready and waiting to be rolled out, to give you that great weekend at Atlantis. We will be sending out further updates throughout the week and keep your eyes on www.nassauparadiseisland.com/weather for the latest.
A FEW TRIPS AND TRICKS!
Atlantis Bahamas is a cash free resort and payments at restaurants and shops are made by credit card or room charge.
The resort has also made a water bottle promise and is eliminating the use of single use plastics! Given this, there are water refill stations located throughout the resort for you to refill your bottles and stay hydrated!
Make sure that you pack some good walking shoes so you can explore all of the nooks and crannies of Atlantis Bahamas, from The Dig to the other marine encounters.
