Atlantis, The Palm: Dubai’s own version of the aquatic megabrand boasts its own beach and is one of the city’s hottest new hotels. Outside the hotel, Atlantis’ Aquaventure waterpark and Dolphin Bay are what attracts most guests to the resort with the opportunity to swim with dolphins and enjoy some of the park’s scariest rides. If you prefer to stay dry, explore the series of tunnels which make up the underground maze known as The Lost Chambers. Call 04 426 0000 for more information.
