Thank you for the outpouring of support and caring during and after Hurricane Matthew. We are happy to report that Atlantis is currently under clear skies and our team is diligently working on our clean-up efforts from the storm.
We are grateful that our resort was only minimally affected, and all of our guests, employees, and marine life remained safe. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our staff for their dedicated efforts in keeping our guests safe, comfortable and entertained during the storm.
While Atlantis was minimally affected, others in The Bahamas were not as fortunate. Often thought of as just a small country, The Bahamas is actually comprised of more than 700 islands on 100,000 square miles of ocean. The infrastructure and homes for many did sustain significant damage.
Many of you have asked how you can help support The Bahamas recovery and rebuilding. Atlantis Paradise Island has launched a fundraising campaign to provide for this effort. Now through October 31st, Atlantis will match all donations received dollar for dollar, with 100% of the proceeds going to The Bahamas Red Cross, up to $250,000. If you are in a position to do so and would like to donate please click here to go directly to the donation site.
Thank you, once again, for your ongoing support. We look forward to seeing you in paradise soon.
We look forward to seeing you in paradise soon and appreciate your support as we work through our clean-up efforts.
We wanted to share this beach photo that was taken earlier this morning by one of our employees.
The Bahamas Meteorological Center has placed the Northern Bahamas, inclusive of Paradise Island and Nassau under a Hurricane Watch.
A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area and a watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of
tropical-storm-force winds. Hurricane Matthew may continue on its current track or it may change its course and intensity.
Atlantis’ Hurricane Policy is now in effect and can be viewed here: http://www.atlantisbahamas.com/hurricaneguarantee. Given the uncertainty of the current track,
we recommend you first contact your airline regarding your flight status into Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in Nassau.
For questions regarding your existing reservation, you can contact our Travel Specialists at 1-800-Atlantis.
Please be assured that the safety of our guests is our foremost concern and that we will continue to provide updates on this page as the storm progresses.
For guests who are currently staying at Atlantis, weather updates are being provided via our in-room television system and digital signage located in the lobbies.
The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands, like all countries in and near the Caribbean Sea, are potentially at risk from hurricanes. The official hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, although hurricanes have been known to form in other months. August, September, and early October are traditionally the months of highest risk.
If you are traveling or residing in this region during hurricane season, please monitor weather reports regularly. Plan ahead and consider what you may do if a hurricane or tropical storm develops. Major hurricanes can cause extensive property damage and loss of life. Do not be caught unprepared! Develop a personal hurricane plan for yourself and your family!
For official information from the Bahamian and Turks and Caicos governments regarding weather conditions, please monitor ZNS (1540 AM or 104.5 FM) or other local media outlets. Information on hurricanes can also be found on the following websites:
