Treat yourself to a special, all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas. With over 700 islands and keys, the country spreads out into the Atlantic Ocean to cover more than 260,000 square kilometres. This rainbow-shaped archipelago of flat lands is the ideal place to relax or to enjoy your honeymoon. The scenery is beautiful, characterized by a strikingly bright blue, both in the sky and the omnipresent sea.
From the coral reefs emerge the beaches where the coconut palms reach up towards the azure sky. The forests and mangroves are all tamed wildernesses waiting to create wonderful memories. Whether experiencing this place through a hotel rental or booking a cruise throughout the Bahamas, you will discover a dense, rich environment that is – best of all – well preserved.
Diving enthusiasts all agree that the Bahamas is a paradise. The resorts are very popular with tourists. The hotels have made a science out of offering all the necessary amenities. Choose the Atlantis Paradise Island for incredible luxury rooms with stunning, sophisticated, and comfortable suites, delicious gourmet meals, and a variety of activities.
The Paradise Island Hotel offers you magical outings in isolated bays, practically swimming with the dolphins! The Atlantis Bahamas also has a golf course, a relaxing spa, and a casino. For the party-goers, a night club awaits every evening to end your day with fast-paced rhythms.
Note that if you select an all-inclusive trip to the Bahamas, the country offers two different environments. The first is non-stop activities and is located on the islands of New Providence and Grand Bahama Island. The second is more romantic – more contemplative – and is centred on the Out Islands. Take a few shopping trips to Nassau and Grand Bahama Island and, for the more adventurous, transform yourself into a real Robinson Crusoe and set off in search of adventure.
The archipelago is located not far from Florida, which makes Miami-Bahamas trips very easy. But the Bahamas has been independent for only thirty-five years. Colonized not by the US, but by the English, the archipelago is full of British heritage. From an historical perspective, the Bahamas is where Christopher Columbus first set foot on the American continent in 1492. It was he who gave the name to the Bahamian archipelago via the Spanish words “baja mar,” meaning “low sea.”
Historically, explorers frequently landed on the islands of the Bahamas. Successive waves of immigration are at the origin of the local culture. Dance is particularly appreciated by the population, particularly during the National Junkanoo Carnival. The vibrant music has its roots in slavery. Drums, goombays, Rake-N-Scrape, and Trinidadian calypso set the rhythm of local life.
To rent a hotel room in the Bahamas or to plan a cruise, be aware that between June and September, hurricanes can sweep the archipelago. Nevertheless, all year round, the sunny climate and mild or warm temperatures are most comfortable.
