Why is Atlantis, The Palm a world away from the everyday?

  • Published 16 February 2018

Luxury is lost no more as Atlantis, The Palm well and truly delivers. This marine-themed resort brings myth to reality from the moment you step into the hotel lobby. As soon as you enter you’ll be treated to the sounds of the trickling fountains, footsteps on the marble floor and squeals of delight from happy holiday makers both young and old. The underwater theme can be seen upon arrival with pillars inspired by oversized koi carp and bright marine-esque mosaics on the walls. In the middle of the pillars an ornate 10-metre high sculpture designed by Dale Chihuly is featured. With more than 3,000 hand blown pieces of colourful glass, this intricate attention to detail is just a teaser for what the hotel has to offer.
 
Guests of Atlantis, The Palm have visited from more than 227 different countries, but why? Promising to offer a world away from your everyday we delve deep into this integrated entertainment resort to discover what makes it tick.

MAKE HOLIDAY MEMORIES

There’s plenty to keep you entertained at Atlantis, The Palm so boredom certainly isn’t on the agenda here. The hotel is 64 times the size of Wembley Stadium and offers a plethora of restaurants, activities and one-of-a-kind experiences. Take advantage of the unlimited complimentary access to Aquaventure Waterpark or book a few treatments at ShuiQi Spa and Fitness Centre and get whisked away to a world outside of your normal four walls.
 
Within the hotel there are 40 boutiques, to keep shopaholics satisfied as well as a range of family-friendly activities including packages at The Lost Chambers Aquarium, Dolphin Bay, Aquaventure Waterpark and Sea Lion Point. And for children, there are two age-specific kids’ clubs to keep those ages between two and 18 entertained.
 
For couples, why not relish the panoramic views of Dubai with a helicopter tour or alternatively take to the waters with a yacht and boat cruise along the Arabian Sea. Or, if you prefer to keep your feet firmly on land, there are also tennis courts to please all sports enthusiasts wanting to perfect their serve.

Aquaventure Waterpark


42-acres of wet and wild fun is just waiting to be had at Aquaventure Waterpark. Awarded the number one water park in the Middle East, here you can almost guarantee a thrilling time.
 
To pump up the adrenaline, Aquaconda is a must. Proudly the world’s largest tube waterslide at 9.2 metres wide and more than 200 metres in length, this ride sees you take your seat in a giant inflatable, that seats up to six riders, before enjoying plenty of twists and turns in order to get to the bottom. Reaching a maximum speed of 21 miles per hour, this one’s great for an adventurous family.
 
For an even faster ride, head to Poseidon’s Revenge where you’ll be plummeted vertically in a capsule at 40 miles per hour. How’s that for adrenaline? And if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, why not strap yourself on to the longest zip line circuit in the Middle East? The Atlantean Flyer Zip Line offers amazing views of the hotel, the beachfront and the Dubai skyline... and dinner party bragging rights for years to come.
 
Finally, cool off from the Dubai heat in the inviting pool. Creating swells higher than a metre, The Torrent wave generator will add an element of fun to your afternoon dip. Ride the waves, hear the laughter of others and fully immerse yourself in this marine paradise.
 
At Aquaventure Waterpark, even the smallest members of the party are catered for thanks to Splasher’s Children’s Play Area. Here there are plenty of open and closed waterslides that are big enough for parents to ride with small children on their laps, as well as climbing frames, hanging bridges and water cannons to play with. Oh, and there’s only one way to end a day of family fun. Under the Big Bucket of Splash of course! Comprising two tipping buckets that send 1,000 litres of water gushing down over you, you won’t be needing a shower afterwards, that’s for sure.
 

Fun facts:

  • 18 million litres of water make up Aquaventure
  • The park has a 2.3km river ride that it takes 45 minutes to float around it’s entirety 
  • Aquaventure is also home to the world’s largest tube waterslide

Dolphin Bay


It’s not every day that you’re able to swim with a pod of bottlenose and that’s exactly what you’re able to do at Dolphin Bay. From toddlers to pensioners this choice is well-suited to all, with multiple packages and tours on offer to cater to different swimming abilities.
 
The most popular experience is the Dolphin Encounter which is a 30-minute meet and greet in shallow water, perfect for all. Limited to groups of 10 or less, with this choice you’ll get to kiss, hug and dance with the dolphins. However, for a slightly more interactive experience, why not opt for the Dolphin Adventure package which is equally as thrilling, giving you the chance to have a belly ride in the centre of the lagoon too.
 
Want double the trouble? The Royal Swim will see you have a whale of a time as you take to the waters with not one but two dolphins. Grab onto their fins as it’s going to be an unforgettable time. Please note however that for this interaction, guests must be confident swimmers and be able to tread water, as you jet along while riding a boogie board. And for the ultimate experience, don your wetsuit and flippers and scuba dive amongst these majestic mammals – believe us, this is one fish tale you’ll be dining on for years to come.
 

Fun facts:

  • The residents of Dolphin Bay are all Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphins
  • There are a total of 45 experienced marine mammal specialists who look after the Dolphin Bay family members
  • Dolphins are very intelligent, their brain mass is slightly greater than that of humans

The suites are stretched out over three floors that are accessible via an in-suite elevator or a lavish, sweeping staircase. Bathrooms are equally as extravagant with marble tubs and walk-in showers. The suites are spacious and grand, however there are interconnecting rooms available catering to families and larger groups.
