In a way, Atlantis Paradise Island’s approach to kashrut Jews goes back to the origins of its promoter, South African hotel entrepreneur Sol Kerzner. The son of Jewish immigrants from Russia who ran a chain of kosher hotels in Johannesburg, Kerzner, who died in March 2020 at the age of 84, acquired his first property in 1962; within two decades, he was already operating 30 luxury hotels across South Africa.
In 1994, Kerzner purchased the bankrupt Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas from artist Merv Griffin. Over the next four years, it spent $800 million, as the station’s website claims, “to bring the myth and legend of the lost city of Atlantis to life.”
By the time Kerzner’s newly renovated resort opened, it had 1,200 rooms and the largest casino in the Caribbean. In 2007, the property, which overlooks tiny Paradise Island just across a narrow canal from Nassau, capital of the Bahamas, underwent a $1 billion expansion.
Ten years later, Atlantis began offering Jewish wedding packages, complete with a local rabbi and a decorated chuppah.
Atlantis now offers a new signature kosher dining service and experience, exclusively available for group events and entertaining. Inspired by the most popular culture, customs and cooking techniques in Israel and the region, Atlantis’ kosher dining service offers dishes through a contemporary lens, offering a range of classic and new dishes that highlight the power of cooking with simple, fresh ingredients.
