Mandara Spa at The Cove Atlantis
“Walk along the glass bridge and through the bamboo water garden” sounds like directions to a fantastical land. Indeed, this path at The Cove Atlantis will lead you to the 30,000-square-foot Mandara Spa, a Balinese-style sanctuary of private spa villas and wellness therapies (the most important being retail therapy) that delivers a relaxing, East-meets-West-meets-Bahamas luxury level of pampering.
Treatment to Book: Taking The Waters bathing experience is bathtime made fabulous with a succession of sauna to steam and cold plunge to hot whirlpool. Go ahead―soak until your fingers get pruney; atlantis.com/content/thecoveatlantis.
