Saturday Q-Shot: Atlantis & VGNO

This weeks question was "If you could go anywhere you haven't been, where would you go?"

This was easy :) I KNOW where I would go, Atlantis! In all honesty I have been here, for only minutes though. While in college my parents took me on a 3 day cruise and one of our stops was Nassau, Bahamas. This gorgeous resort island was near our ships dock and I have dreamed of going there ever since.

Would you like to come with me? Wonderful! Off we go:

We arrive by private yacht to the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island


Mythical winged horses greet us at the entrance


We check into the grand Lobby and get ready for our adventure


Play time! we get on our inner tube and ride down the Lazy River, through lifts and drops, white-water Rapids, 80-foot underground tunnel and caves.


Then it's off to the five-story Mayan Temple with a 60-ft. vertical drop that ends in a clear tunnel inside a shark-filled lagoon


Lunch Time! We'll savor a mixture of Southwestern cuisine with a Bahamian twist at the award winning Mesa Grill overlooking Paradise Beach


Then we need some fancy new clothes. Exclusive haute couture boutiques line the Crystal Court Shops


We'll take a break at this inviting beach bar and watch the sun set, while enjoying an umbrella drink of course


After a long day of enjoying this tropical paradise it's time to see our gorgeous Suite in the Royal Towers and change into our evening wear


We'll try our hand at gambling in the casino and check out more of the resorts wonderful decor


Then lets enjoy traditional fine dining in a warm and inviting club atmosphere at the Bahamian Club


We head to Aura Nightclub where DJs spin, illuminating the glass dance floor.


What a day! I had such a nice time, thanks for coming along!

Thanks for the tour of the Atlantis. I was there once... I won $600 on the slots in the casino, and then returned to my budget all inclusive resort down the street, all while dreaming of the luxury at the Atlantis! Oh well, it was the ONE and only vacation the my ex planned and paid for, I guess I should not complain!

Stopping by from VGNO!
