Editor’s Review of Atlantis Royal Towers

The Royal Towers is the most iconic of all of the six properties at Atlantis Resort, soaring over the sands of Paradise island with its twin flamingo-pink towers, connected by a bridge near the top. This is the first hotel that developer Saul Kerzner built after creating Atlantis in 1994, and it most captures his vision of a resort built in and around the ancient drowned city. No expense is spared on the decor here, with original works of sculpture celebrating seahorses, flying fish and bulls (supposedly a symbol of power to the Atlanteans) springing from every hall. The centerpiece of the property is the Great Hall, where eight giant murals set into the rotunda tell the story of Atlantis from creation to destruction, and a grand staircase leads down to the Ruins Lagoon, where you can get a ... more tour of the ruined city itself.

The Royal Towers has by far the most rooms of any hotel in Atlantis resort -- some 2,400. For most first-time visitors, this is the first choice of places to stay, both for the otherworldly feel of the property and for the convenience of being in the center of all the action. The towers themselves are divided into two, with the East Tower containing the spa and kids club, and the West Tower including the great hall, casino, and Ruins Lagoon. Between them is the "bridge suite," which rents out for $25,000 a night and -- rumor has it -- is rented out for three months of the year by an unnamed royal who also rents 64 other rooms for his entourage.

The other rooms in the hotel, of course, are not quite as expensive, but will set you back between $420 and $540 a night depending on room type. While the rooms here are not substantially different from the rooms in the lower-priced Coral and Beach Towers, they are slightly larger, and offer more flexibility with several different types of suites catering to larger families or extended families travelling together. Staying here also cuts down substantially on walking and grabbing shuttles, as it offers easy access to the water park, aquariums, restaurants, and other attractions that form the centerpiece of the Atlantis experience.

Rooms

The 1,200 rooms at Royal Towers are very comfortably appointed, with a subdued tropical color palette of lime green, aqua, and yellow and handsome cherry-wood furniture. Amenities in the rooms include a small flat-screen TV, minibar and coffeemaker. Bathrooms are sizeable, with marble vanities and chrome finishes, along with locally made bath products. In addition to standard guest rooms, Royal Towers also offers both junior and full suites; both offer a sleep sofa, balcony, and an additional bathroom with shower and tub. Both also offer the option of adding an adjoining room for an additional sleeping space. For high-rollers, the hotel also offers several higher ranges of suites that seem more like apartments, including Royal Suite, Presidential Suite, and the height of opulence: the $25,000-a-night Bridge Suite. Most rooms are far more reasonable, if not cheap, starting at $455 a night.
