Atlantis The Palm

Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai is a magnificent, oceanic tribute to a mythological age. A vast waterscape, Atlantis is a place of sunken aquatic chambers, submerged ruins, and exhilarating water rides, where shark experiences thrill and dolphin encounters leave lifelong impressions. This dynamic property is rising in Dubai from the coastline of the largest man-made island in the world, the Palm Jumeirah. Positioned as the flagship property it is, situated at the apex of the Palm Jumeirah's Crescent, Atlantis, The Palm, majestically crowns the development, while surrounded by the beautifully tranquil sea of the Arabian Gulf.

The resort offers more than 1,500 guest accommodations at the Royal Towers, with over 16 restaurants, bistros and cafes, bars and lounges, and extensive meeting facilities including the opulent Royal Palm ballroom and the Palm Terrace which will overlook the tropical landscape and lapping waters between the central fronds and the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah. As the ultimate resort destination, Atlantis, The Palm, is full of trails of discovery, with over 68,000 m3 (15 million gallons) of salt and fresh water attractions, vibrant entertainment which will bring a host of ocean-themed delights into the very center of any holiday experience, thrilling the senses and unearthing new encounters for all.

Water adventures, salt and fresh water attractions and an open-air marine habitat are the focal point of Atlantis, The Palm for both guests and visitors. Aquaventure is a water playground consisting of extraordinary rides with cascades, tidal waves and rapids, and the Mesopotamian-styled Ziggurat temple reaching over 30 meters into the sky and featuring seven heart-pumping water slides, two of which catapult riders through shark-filled lagoons. The Ambassador Lagoon is an 11 million liter marine habitat and underw ater exhibit home to several hundred species of marine life, with a viewing panel looking right into the mystical ruins of Atlantis. Finally, Dolphin Bay is a 4.5 hectare state-of-the-art dolphin education and conservation center allowing guests the opportunity to meet and interact with one of the world's most charismatic animals in an unparalleled facility.
