WHY IT RATES: The new Kosher celebration program from Atlantis provides gourmet dishes, world-class service and so much more. - Eric Bowman, TravelPulse Senior Editor
Atlantis, Paradise Island announces a new program catering to Jewish Wedding and Celebration groups seeking a picturesque destination, while honoring their cultural traditions. In partnership with Kosherica, the Glatt Kosher travel industry leader, the dedicated LOVE Atlantis Weddings and Celebrations team works closely with bridal couples and group leaders to fully customize their momentous occasion. Jewish celebrations at Atlantis feature a selection of special Kosher menus prepared under the direction of world-class chefs as well as special cultural touches. From a beautifully decorated chuppah overlooking the crystal-blue Bahamian waters to a locally-based Rabbi and a tropical Yichud area, Atlantis is truly setting a new trend in cultural destination weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs.
Kosherica was founded over 20 years ago by Yehuda Shifman and has delivered memorable vacations to more Jewish cruise travelers than all other Jewish travel companies combined. "Our world-class service has kept Kosherica a household name for two decades," said Shifman. "With our unparalleled customer service and ability to offer gourmet Glatt Kosher, cholov yisroel, pas yisroel food prepared daily by five-star chefs, we thought it was a perfect fit to partner with Atlantis on their Kosher celebrations program. We look forward to working together to make Atlantis THE destination for Jewish celebrations."
The Jewish Wedding program can be combined with select LOVE Atlantis wedding packages or planned on a custom-basis. Enhancement options include:
• Locally-based Rabbi available for religious ceremonies
• Decorated chuppah enhancement with an array of floral options
• Exclusive Yichud area following the ceremony
• Dedicated LOVE Atlantis Jewish Wedding Manager
• Custom-planned ceremony site fees start at $3,500 (plus tax)
Groups wishing to plan a Bar or Bat Mitzvah at Atlantis can work with a Celebrations Specialist on creating a custom package to include ceremony location, daily breakfast, photography services and photo album, dolphin swims and more.
"We are so excited to launch the new Jewish Celebration program within the LOVE Atlantis brand," said Jessi Hill, Executive Director of Weddings and Special Events. "In our efforts to continue to expand our offerings and market reach, we knew there was a need for Kosher catering in the destination segment. Groups wishing to hold true to their traditions don't want to be limited to their geographic location. I'm confident this program will cater perfectly to groups wanting to uphold their family's traditions in a unique resort setting that is not often easily achieved."
"I applaud Atlantis for going out of their way to accommodate Kosher Weddings and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs," said Rabbi Sholom Bluming from Chabad of The Bahamas. "This program is a very exciting development for the island."
Destination weddings and celebrations at Atlantis have a choice of more than twenty impressive ceremony and reception venues, including Ocean's Edge at The Cove Atlantis, Atlantis' newest venue that is perched atop a white-sand dune and just steps from the crystal-blue Bahamian waters.
The contemporary, spacious event area is the only one of its kind in the Caribbean and was designed to be a multi-functional space that can be customized for every event. LOVE Atlantis signature offerings also include bespoke save the dates and invitations, wedding gifting through its partnership with Gifts for the Good Life, and an online honeymoon registry.
