ATLANTIS This glitzy resort destination in the Bahamas that’s long held a monopoly on beachside glamour, luxury accommodations, celebrity-chef gourmet offerings, Vegas-style gambling and adult fun has upped the ante for brides with its brand-new Ocean’s Edge (above), one of the most beautiful destination wedding locations we’ve seen. Perched atop a white sand dune that’s steps away from the ocean, this seaside venue can be customized for each event with a level of luxury and sophistication that’s not easily found in the islands. Atlantis is also a wonderful honeymoon destination. Be sure to stay at the Cove, the resort’s luxury accommodations, and take advantage of the wedding and honeymoon specialists who can arrange all the details of your trip. Spend the day poolside at the adults-only Cain at the Cove, gambling, sipping tropical drinks and dancing to the hippest tunes blasted by an amazing deejay (also amazing people watching!). Dine at the famous Nobu or Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill (order the pork tenderloin). And swim with the dolphins. But all this merely skims the surface of everything the Atlantis has to offer. With 11 pools, more than 40 restaurants and bars, the Mandara spa, casinos, tennis, golf, extensive water parks, water sports, adult clubs and luxury shopping, there’s no shortage of things to do. You may need a honeymoon from this honeymoon. Room rates at the Cove start at $625. 800-285-2684.
