The Bahamas' two largest resorts will reopen in time for the holiday season in December.
Atlantis Paradise Island with 3,400 rooms will resume operations on Dec. 10 to be followed by the 2,200-room Baha Mar complex on Dec. 17.
Atlantis will reopen with renovated guestrooms in its Royal East Tower and Harborside Resort villas.
The Reef's residential-style studios and suites will reopen on Dec. 17.
Guests will have access to 200 acres with five miles of beach, multiple pools, many dining and shopping venues, the casino, golf and spa facilities.
New experiences include sunset speedboat tours, art tours, shark and mermaid camps, secluded dinners on the beach and dive-in movie nights.
"To reassure travelers, we have implemented our Atlantis Clean & Safe Promise, which meets international and local standards for health and safety protocols," said Audrey Oswell, president and managing director.
For travelers from the New York tri-state region, the resort has partnered with JetBlue on an air and resort seven-night package offering nonstop charter flights to Nassau from Newark, effective Jan. 3, 2021.
The package covers the flight, accommodations in the Royal East Tower, roundtrip transfers and a $75 daily dining credit per person.
In addition, Atlantis offers numerous packages with different options and inclusions.
A separate first-night free offer, bookable to Nov. 22, is valid for stays between Dec. 10-17, with a two-night minimum stay required.
Room rates begin at $299 per night plus tax and resort fees.
Guests must meet the entry protocols in place for the Bahamas.
However, guests who stay within the Paradise Island safe zone, which includes Atlantis, the Ocean Club golf course, Comfort Suites and the Ocean Club Bahamas, a Four Seasons Resort, are exempt from having to take the rapid antigen test on day five of their stay.
All Atlantis guests ages 2 and older must wear masks in public spaces.
