Atlantis, Paradise Island will reopen on July 7 in a limited capacity, following the Bahamas' plans to reopen to international flights July 1.

The resort, which has more than 2,300 rooms when fully operational, will open some of its accommodations in the Royal Towers, East and West and the Harborside Resort. Many facilities and water sports will also be available, as well as in-restaurant dining.

The Baha Mar complex in Nassau, meanwhile, is postponing its reopening and hopes to resume operations in October, according to a statement.

"It is our hope that in prolonging our closing, we are setting the stage for a more successful reopening, one that will provide the much needed economic relief and long-term stability we all depend on," Baha Mar said in the statement. "In addition to creating robust Covid-19 safety plans, we are monitoring bookings and travel demand as we strategize the exact date to reopen and adjust staffing needs."

The Baha Mar complex, which includes the SLS, Rosewood and Grand Hyatt hotels, has restarted construction projects that include Mini Blue, an 18-hole miniature golf course, the addition of new retail stores and the development of Baha Bay, a beachfront aqua adventure experience that is on track for a 2021 opening.

Baha Mar is providing an additional 90 days of 30% base compensation for its employees and will continue to pay their health insurance premiums.

Other hotels and villas, including Airbnb and HomeAway properties, will begin reopening to guests next month.
