Prince William and Kate Middleton Stay at Atlantis Paradise Island

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose The Cove at Atlantis Paradise Island to be their home away from home during their time in The Bahamas – the last stop on their Caribbean tour in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The royal couple stayed in the iconic property’s Three Bedroom Penthouse Suite, a 4,830-square-foot hideaway with floor-to-ceiling windows, wrap-around ocean views, a large living area, office space, and a separate 10-set dining area with a full-service kitchen.

During their stay, The Duke and Duchess enjoyed several meals in the Penthouse, prepared by the resort’s Vice President of Culinary, Chef Alan Orreal, and The Cove’s Executive Chef, Brian Porteus. High afternoon tea was served on fine china, including Prince William’s favorite Chocolate Biscuit Cake made using Lady Finger Biscuits with chocolate ganache, dipped in chocolate and coated in nuts. Also included in the Afternoon Tea were mini lemon meringue pies, raspberry pastries, and freshly baked scones accompanied by jam and cream.

Breakfast included an impressive spread of scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, toast, croissants, and fruit served on fine china by Vista Alegre in the Constellation D'Or pattern complemented by Christofle sterling silverware . Drinks were served in Waterford Crystal glasses, including specially requested mango smoothies for breakfast. Lunch was a mezze from the resort’s beachfront Pita Restaurant, which included a selection of shawarma, falafels, a Middle Eastern Israeli salad made up of finely diced tomato, onion, cucumber, and chili peppers as well as Tabbouleh; finely chopped parsley with tomato, mint, onion and bulgar, served with pickles and a selection of dips including hummus and baba ghanoush, enjoyed with toasted pita bread.

For dinner, The Duke requested a sourdough pepperoni pizza. At the same time, The Duchess opted for a traditional Bahamian spicey prawn curry, and Nobu’s Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki served on a bed of noodles. Dinner was enjoyed with a Rum Punch – a mix of Bacardi Coconut Rum and Bacardi Superior White Rum mixed with Pineapple Juice, Orange Juice, Grenadine, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Bath amenities in the Penthouse included hand soaps and hand wash by European luxury brand, Byredo in both Rose and Suede scents. His and hers niLuu robes made with vegan, environmentally friendly silk, a selection of Sugarfina confectionary, and handmade Bahamian gifts by local artisans.
