Atlantis bringing in the new year in diverse fashion

Atlantis has vamped up its approach to New Year’s weekend, with a resort executive saying a diverse experience is the focus for the Paradise Island resort.

Senior director of special events at Atlantis Cecile Raubenheimer told Guardian Business that guests will have multiple ways to ring in 2012 – and the attention to detail will be fully reflected over the weekend.

“This year, we focused on giving our guests several different experiences; there will be five different events for them to choose from,” Raubenheimer said. “They get to customize what type of New Year’s evening they want to have. That was our primary focus, making sure each demographic has the option of doing something they like to do.”

Raubenheimer added that more events have been included this year compared to last year and most of the activities are catered towards the adult crowd. Non-hotel guests will be able to join in the festivities as well – which include several themed parties at the various bars and nightclubs on the property.

“We have several things going on the property in regards to our nightclubs, bars and restaurants,” she said. “We will have midnight toasts and bottle services at Club Aura and Dragons, we will have late night dining at certain restaurants, and the casino will have an event as well.”

With the Christmas period being one of the busiest times of the year, Raubenheimer admits that this holiday seems busier than last year. She added that the guests are enjoying the festive environment and the amount of options they have at their fingertips.

Amanda Felts, vice president of guest activities, said the feedback received from hotel guests has been tremendous and they have taken advantage of all the added amenities.

“The guests are loving it,” Felts said. “All of our events over the past couple of weeks have been full and with Atlantis enhancing our entertainment this year, they have jumped on it.”

Felts added that there are a number of “great” things on the horizon and they plan on rolling out a host of other events in 2012. Having multiple options, she said, makes their experience more enjoyable.

“That’s what makes Atlantis special because we make sure that everybody gets everything they desire on a vacation,” she said.
