Atlantis or, as it’s officially-known, Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai’s very own outpost of the international mega brand.

This aquatic version of Disneyland encompasses 1,373 rooms and 166 suites each designed with the sea, and Atlantis Dubai’s Arabic home in mind.

If you’ve got the cash to splash, forget ocean views, you can actually stay in it. If you book into The Lost Chambers Suites, you won’t be overlooking the ocean, but living in it. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer a spectacular view into the Ambassador Lagoon with a mind-boggling array of exotic marine life gracefully gliding by.

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.

For foodies, Atlantis brings world-famous chefs Michel Rostang, Giorgio Locatelli, Santi Santamaria and Matsuhisa Nobu to our Emirate.
