PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas, named one of Parents magazine's "Top Ten Beach Resorts For Families," is offering a 50 percent discount for a limited time at its newest luxury tower, The Reef Atlantis, in celebration of World Ocean Day. The recently-opened 497-key tower offers guests home-like accommodations and amenities -- with the beach as a backyard -- while instigating conservation and protection of the world's oceans through The Blue Project(SM), a non-profit fund for coral reef conservation and restoration efforts.
The Reef, a contemporary-styled resort, is situated on Paradise Beach, creating water views from all rooms, which are complete with private balconies overlooking the ocean and white sands.

All one-bedroom suites feature an en-suite energy-efficient washer and dryer and the resort provides complimentary laundry facilities for all studio accommodations.
The Reef Adventure is a unique snorkeling or SCUBA in-water interaction program available directly from the resort in partnership with Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas. A beach-loading vessel with an on-board Atlantis Aquarist will take guests on an underwater exploration of both healthy and endangered reefs, and teach them about indigenous marine animals. A maximum number of 24 guests participate in each 90-minute Reef Adventure, departing daily at 9:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at a cost of $55 for snorkeling, with $5 from each booking going directly to The Blue Project(SM). However, guests of The Reef World Ocean Day package will receive a 50 percent discount on this signature excursion, with the price already built into the $369* package rate.
