Atlantis The Palm

Many refer to the famous resort as a city in its own right, the crown jewel on the apex of Palm Jumeirah. With its mythical suggestive name, Atlantis The Palm draws comparison to the lost legendary island which was sunk beneath the ocean 12,000 years ago, – only this place is not lost. Atlantis the Palm rises gloriously from the Arabian Sea to continue its story of superlatives and treat visitors to most unique experiences. The hotel’s design is as unique as its offerings, showcasing a red brick façade that almost recalls long-forgotten Disney fairy tales and a central arch reminiscent of a gateway to mythical kingdoms.

One of Dubai’s biggest hotels, Atlantis showcases over 1,500 rooms, 23 dining venues, a waterpark, and a massive aquarium that is home to 65,000 marine creatures. Additionally, the resort comes with its own medical centre, helipad, underwater aquarium, bowling alley, tennis courts, shopping outlets, and pools.

One of the most attractive features at the resort is The Lost Chambers Aquarium, designed to resemble the lost city of Atlantis. The aquarium takes guests through a labyrinth of underwater chambers, where you feel you are almost submerged under sea level, with sea creatures swimming all around. The rooms and suites at the Atlantis are flooded with 360-degrees views of the Arabian Gulf, exuding an oceanic-inspired design and Arabian flair.

​Atlantis guests will have free access to Aquaventure, the Middle East’s most famous water park, where they can experience the excitement of slides at the Tower of Neptune or the Tower of Poseidon. The hotel offers a variety of culinary options, such as traditional Chinese dining at the Yuan restaurant, Japanese cuisine at the Nobu, and Gordon Ramsay’s quintessential British recipes at Bread Street Kitchen & Bar.
