Paradise Island History

Paradise Island, formerly known as Hog Island has an area of 685 acres and is located just off the shore of the city of Nassau. The island is known for harboring the massive Atlantis resort which takes up most of the island.

Paradise Island originally was the private estate of the Swedish entrepreneur Axel Wenner-Gren. It was then bought by Huntington Hartford in 1959 and built the Ocean Club, Cafe Martinique, Hurricane Hole, the Golf Course, among other island landmarks.

Hartford met James Crosby and included him as an extra investor after obtaining a gambling license for the island. The two continued to develop the island and built large-scale resorts as well as bridges to the island. Paradise Island was then purchased in the 1980's for 79 million and then sold to Merv Griffin for 400 million. It was last sold for 125 million to the current owner Sol Kerzner.
