Atlantis reporting 90 percent occupancy levels

Atlantis is experiencing strong occupancies in the mid-nineties range for the Fourth of July holiday, and is eyeing two renovation projects before the end of the year, Atlantis Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Ed Fields told Guardian Business yesterday.

Fields said all of the resort’s towers are experiencing occupancies of about 90 percent, and added that the rest of the summer is trending in a positive direction.

According to Fields, the traditionally slow period of September and October are holding true to tradition.

“Overall we are looking at moderately high occupancy levels for July into mid-August, then we shift gears and prepare for the traditionally slowest months (September/October) on the hospitality calendar,” he said.

“The next peak period will be the Thanksgiving weekend and the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’ U.S. college basketball tournament.”

In the meantime, Fields said Atlantis is offering special rates for the summer for residents and families of $130 per night. He also noted that Atlantis will be offering special “back to school” rates for its Aquaventure waterpark from mid-August to the beginning of September.

The resort also has a special “Abba Revisited” concert series that began on Tuesday and runs until July 13 at the Atlantis Theater.

Fields said the room renovations at The Reef were complete at the end of March this year, and renovations to the lobby are expected to be completed in mid-September. He added that phase one renovations to the Royal Towers East tower is set to begin on August 12 and should be completed for the Christmas season.
