The Atlantis Paradise Island is a resort and water park located on Paradise Island, The Bahamas. Officially opened in 1998, the resort was created by South African hotel magnate Sol Kerzner and Kerzner International Limited. Paradise Island first opened its Coral and Beach Towers as the Trump Plaza, then changed its name to Atlantis when the Royal Towers were built.
Following Media Day on Monday, Sept. 30, the Heat will travel to Paradise Island and will conduct two-a-day practice sessions in the Imperial Ballroom at the Atlantis Conference Center beginning on Tuesday. They will conclude the practice sessions and return to Miami on Friday afternoon.
Accommodations at the resort include:
- The Beach Tower, formerly known as the Paradise Beach Hotel;
