William and Kate made their first joint post-pandemic overseas trip to the Caribbean in March. The tour was made in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee—a commemoration of the monarch’s 70-year reign. 

The couple visited three former British colonies where the queen still serves as head of state. They started their tour on March 19, with a three-day stay in Belize, before moving on to Jamaica — the island country Queen Elizabeth visited following her coronation. 

After spending two nights in Jamaica, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge concluded their tour with a two-day stay in the Bahamas. While in Nassau, the couple participated in The Bahamas Platinum Jubilee Sailing Regatta at the Royal Sailing Club—an event and venue that was beloved by Prince William’s grandfather, Prince Philip.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Caribbean tour included a stay at one of the Bahamas’ most luxurious resorts. The couple spent two nights at The Cove Atlantis—the latest addition to the sprawling, multi-property Atlantis resort in Nassau. 

The Cove is a beachfront hotel that sits atop white sandy beaches and brilliant blue water. It features 600 luxury suites, each with floor-to-ceiling views and private balconies. 

William and Kate stayed in The Cove’s most opulent offering — the Penthouse Suite. The massive, 4,830-square-foot suite features three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and multiple bathrooms. The room is lavishly decked out with stone floors, marble bathrooms, and a double-door entrance. 

In a statement to People, Atlantis Paradise Island President and Managing Director Audrey Oswell suggested the resort was honored to host the royal couple. “We have always admired the focus of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as it aligns with our mission at The Atlantis Blue Project Foundation to promote sustainability and protect the environment,” she said. 

“Our team members look forward to extending exceptional and authentic Bahamian hospitality,” Oswell added.  “And demonstrating what makes our resort and The Bahamas so remarkable through our incomparable amenities and culture.”

So how much does it cost to stay at the hotel Prince William and Kate stayed at in the Bahamas? 

The Cove is all about luxury and privacy, so it isn’t as affordable as some other Atlantis properties. For May 2022, smaller suites at The Cove start at $580 per night. And larger, multi-room suites go up to as much as $4,350 per night.

The hotel doesn’t list prices for the Penthouse Suite that Prince William and Kate stayed in. But some reports suggest it can run $15,000 and up per night.

Luckily, Atlantis has several other resorts in Nassau that can accommodate different price points — and all are close to The Cove. But prices will vary, depending on the month, date, and length of stay. 

For May 2022, rooms at Atlantis’ The Royal start at around $380. The Reef at Atlantis offers studios and suites for $489. And the family-friendly Harborside Resort has rooms that start at $559 per night.
