One of the best ways to escape the sweltering heat for the summer is to cool off in the pools at Atlantis The Palm, and now is the perfect chance to get your tickets cheaper than ever.
For a limited time only, prices for some of the top attractions at the resort are being reduced, with discounts up to 50 percent. We can definitely get on board with that.
Book fast though, as this splash sale only lasts from Wednesday May 23 to Sunday May 27, to be used between June 1 to August 20.
The exclusive five-day sale includes 50 percent off at Aquaventure Waterpark (Dhs137.5) and at The Lost Chambers Aquarium (Dhs52.5).
The discounts don’t stop there. Expect up to 40 percent off a dive in the lagoon with the Ambassador Lagoon Snorkel (Dhs185), along with greetings from the friendliest mammal of the sea with the Dolphin Encounter (Dhs495) and Adventure (Dhs695).
If you’re planning on coming back for more, the price slash also applies to the season pass to the waterpark at Dhs235.
Aquaventure Waterpark has 11 unique waterslides and the longest river ride in the Middle East, at 2.3km. That’s a long trip.
If you want a little taster of what you’re in for, Time Out Dubai spent a day at the resort giving stingrays some much needed grub and dancing with a sea lion. Fun times.
There’s plenty more to be done, including feeding sessions with stingrays and visiting the resorts fish nursery.
Speaking of cooling off for the summer, there are plenty of other places in Dubai to escape the blazing heat.
Prices vary. May 23-27. Open daily 10am-sunset. Palm Jumeirah, www.aquaventurewaterpark.com (04 426 0000).
