Welcome to Paradise Island and your Indonesian-Balinese inspired escape. Sunrise Beach Resort is located on the same beach as Atlantis. We are next to the Rui Hotel , which is next to Atlantis and on the other side we are next to the One and Only Club Resort (site of a James Bond movie!). Sunrise Beach is an oasis on Paradise Island, with wonderful architecture, onsite Bar and Restaurant, with frequent live music or karaoke. We are the affordable Bahamas destination for families, couples and celebrations. We welcome repeat visitors to all of our 4 locations at Sunrise. 12A has a vaulted ceiling and has a great view of with it's mesmerizing aquamarine ocean. In life we seek renewal, connectivity and reflection. We go on vacation to achieve this. We ourselves do what you are doing right now....Welcome to Paradise Island and your Indonesian-Balinese inspired escape. Sunrise Beach Resort is located on the same beach as Atlantis.

We welcome repeat visitors to all of our 4 locations at Sunrise. 12A has a vaulted ceiling and has a great view of with it's mesmerizing aquamarine ocean. In life we seek renewal, connectivity and reflection. We go on vacation to achieve this. We ourselves do what you are doing right now. Trying to decide where we are to go, will everyone have enough to do? , can we afford it? , is it safe? , are reviews accurate? and once we book we are trusting someone we do not know?. We have taken the plunge and enjoyed private rentals from owners who provide what we need, a place to spread out and have the personal touches that intrigue us. It gives us a window on the person who created this home. We seek a refuge from the intensity that life presents and that is the feeling that will envelope you at this location. The environment is magical, with wandering paths, waterfalls, little statues and was styled by the Austrian consulate to the Bahamas. This is like visiting a chalet in Austria within the tropics. There are 2 pools on site. One is right in front of the balcony. Children are not lost in a maze of a hotel and can safely move around. You are not waiting for elevators. It is tranquil. People of the Bahamas are warm and caring and very polite. They are authentic in their communication and are down to earth and fun to be around. They take life less seriously and you get into their pace quickly. Nothing moves fast at Sunrise except the Hummingbirds! We provide the home comforts you desire, from king bed and 2 twins and a pull out couch. You will have free internet access, with a computer in most places-always bring your own notebook as a backup! You can call back home unlimited to North America and family can call you directly on a North American #. Bedding is tropical and you have has a stained glass window in the main bathroom. All our locations have been renovated and updated. You will have LED TV with cable TV in living room and both bedrooms. You can barbecue on the balcony and dream as you sit and look out over the ocean. Within minutes walk on a sidewalk you can be whisked away into Atlantis and enter a Mayan Temple, be plunged through a tube surrounded by sharks. You can gamble your savings away or dine at world renowned restaurants. You can visit a comedy club, the glitzy nightclub called Aqua, your teens can visit Club Rush. You can see so much you will be transformed. You will see a world that is magical and different but does not feel artificial. You will have the tranquility of seeing a marine world that is spectacular. Atlantis is a must see. You can avail of all of it's offerings except the waterpark, where you need to buy a pass and then explore the lazy rivers, the powertower and a world of water that is so much fun! On Paradise Island you can go to feed ducks at a pond or visit the Versailles Gardens , minutes away and see a transposed monastery from France. Our passion is to create an environment that allows you to feel the warmth of the Bahamas, be in an environment that is transformative. We started this journey for our own family 15 years ago to create the family vacation that allowed time to slow down and for us to laugh and know each other even better. As the journey in life can be tumultuous at times and exciting at other times a favourite activiy of mine is to play a soundtrack of music repeatedly in a pleasant environment and when back home anytime I replay that music specifically I am back to that experience. People in life do things to make money as an important goal. I have avoided that as it contaminates creativity and abstract thought. We really enjoy providing affordability and permeating an environment with the conditions to detach from the triggers that stress us, work harder and longer and say to ourselves what is a more important meaning to the human existence. We have always the concern of how we can succeed in life and that family will succeed and those demands we place can be draining. To detach from that paradigm is essential. Sometimes we distract ourselves. We are looking at at creating an environment that will tap into our own ability to self soothe, 'to be rather than to do'. You may see some inspirational motifs in some of our places. You may see a Buddha. You may see Eastern influence in themes, but we hope you will enjoy the environment that will allow to realize more by being meditative by default, not by telling yourself to be. Enjoy!More
