Trip to the Bahamas 2024 - Part 2

July 11, 2024

 


Hello friends.  I will finish up our trip to the Bahamas in this blog post.  In case you missed Part 1, you can read about that here.

One of the main reasons my husband and I wanted to visit the Atlantis Bahamas resort is because they had just hosted their second Wine and Food Festival.  It's a great way to meet celebrity chefs in person.  

We booked well in advance our tickets to attend the Nobu Dinner with Nobu Matsuhisa.  Nobu is a famous chef with many restaurants.  His restaurant is located inside the casino at the Atlantis.  We've been to both Nobu restaurants in New York City. 


Nobu gave a speech before our dinner.  We sat at a table with many other people.  Some people at our table were also from New York.  It was a nice evening and a great way to meet other interesting people.


Our menu for the evening.


Lychee nut martini.


Below is a sample of some of the delicious Japanese food we ate.


It was so nice to meet Nobu in person.  He went to every table to meet everyone who attended this dinner.   


Our table stayed after everyone left the restaurant.  Then we all went to a bar in the casino for more drinks.  It was a nice way to end the evening.

The next day we relaxed at the beach and pool.  I just loved the beaches at the Atlantis.  


This is an area right by the marina.  The evening was cool enough to wear a light sweatshirt.




The grounds of the Atlantis are so pretty and tropical.


I enjoyed looking at all of the fish and exotic marine life.





We used to visit the Atlantis when my daughter was little.  She loved playing in this area of the pool.  There is also a lazy river ride that is fun to do.  



We enjoyed seeing the waterfalls and grounds of the Atlantis.  

We also spotted Matt James from the Bachelor, Season 25 in our lobby one evening.




We enjoyed our few days at the Atlantis and we're looking forward to going back again.  Next time we'll make reservations at all the restaurants we want to eat at.  The restaurants we tried to eat at were booked up and a bit of a disappointment.  We ate at a buffet one night and had salad and sandwiches another night.  We also enjoyed Shake Shack on the first and last night of our trip.
