The Versailles Gardens, along with the Cloisters, are part of the Ocean Club property, but both seem to be quiet enough where you can ramble through without any interference. The north-south axis that runs through the gardens aligns a string of several classical sculptures, and nearby is a statue of FDR, a hero of Hunt's. The Ocean Club’s groundskeepers immaculately manicure the stepped lawns. The north end of the axis is the pool of the Ocean Club, but this is more of a private area so be careful if you venture this far. Even though you would think that this garden would have a cooling effect, there is very little shade so you are liable to fry under the strong Bahamian sun.
Both the Versailles Gardens and the Cloisters are located in the eastern part of Paradise Island and are a pleasant 15-minute stroll from the Atlantis. If you are staying in Nassau, it will take a bit more effort to visit, but both are pleasant to visit as a tandem if you are in the area.
