Why we recommend Atlantis The Palm, Dubai

07 February 2019

Atlantis The Palm, Dubai is one of Dubai’s most opulent contemporary hotels – no mean feat in a city famed for its lavish lifestyle. Set on the city’s beautiful Palm Island, this dazzling hotel is in a world of its own with extraordinary features, amenities and experiences that you’ll only find somewhere as extravagant as Dubai. We take a look at what sets Atlantis, The Palm apart from the rest – from the underwater rooms to its mouthwatering brunches.

Amazing accommodation

Discover some of the most elegant hotel rooms in Dubai, designed for absolute comfort and unparalleled luxury. From the Ocean Room, with tranquil views over the Arabian Gulf, to the Palm Room, which offers an unparalleled view of the famous Dubai skyline, your stay will be a memorable one.

For the ultimate in opulence, the superlative Signature Suites include the underwater suites which look out into the Ambassador Lagoon and offer an experience unlike anywhere else in the world. Wake up to views of the ancient ruins of the mythical lost city of Atlantis and its 65,000 inhabitants through floor-to-ceiling windows looking straight into the waters.

Both three-storey suites, aptly named Poseidon and Neptune, come complete with extravagant perks such as soap flecked with gold flakes, Dom Perignon champagne, and round-the-clock butler service.

TC tip: Book the Ultimate Dive for two trips into the tank surrounding you, and on your second dive, you’ll get to feed the stingrays.

Delectable dining

With 23 restaurants serving a variety of international cuisines and eateries to suit the time of day and your mood, you’ll never go hungry at Atlantis, The Palm. Experience legendary Japanese restaurant Nobu with its fusion cuisine blending traditional Japanese dishes with Peruvian ingredients to create one of the world’s most recognisable restaurants. If fine dining is the order of the day, there’s also Bread Street Kitchen, the world-renowned gastropub by Gordon Ramsey, and authentic, family-friendly Italian restaurant Ronda Locatelli.

Enjoy award-winning seafood at speciality restaurant Ossiano and dine with incredible views of Ambassador Lagoon, enjoy a lavish breakfast, lunch or dinner at buffet restaurant Kaleidoscope or opt for casual dining and one of Dubai’s best bites at The Burger Joint.

“The hotel has so much to see. There is the impressive lobby, avenues full of shops and the Lost Chambers, with floor-to-ceiling glass giving you a window into the fish - and shark-filled lagoon. There are also so many fantastic restaurants to choose from. Kaleidoscope serves the most fantastic buffet breakfast I have ever seen and also offers lunch and dinner. The pool bar is the place to go if you just want a snack or drink in the day, then there is an incredible choice of restaurants for your evening meal.”

Family fun

The legend of the Lost City of Atlantis exists in the form of Dubai’s Aquaventure Waterpark, situated within the visually stunning confines of the Palm Islands on the city’s coastline. This adrenaline-inducing attraction boasts 42 tropical acres of waterfalls, tidal rivers, and slides, plus a newly renovated small children's area called Splashers Island.

Make sure you pay a visit to The Lost Chambers, where you can discover the myth of Atlantis and meet the marine inhabitants. The Behind the Scenes Tour provides a dynamic and interactive opportunity to experience a day in the life of an expert at The Lost Chambers Aquarium, and you can even visit a fish hospital and learn about the special breeding programmes and how the team take care of jellyfish, sharks and rays.

TC tip: Try a yoga class with a difference in the unique aquatic surroundings of The Lost Chambers, every Friday between 8am and 9am.

“The hotel features a marine habitat with 65,000 ocean creatures, a dolphin encounter and the Aquaventure Waterpark, the largest waterpark in Dubai with lazy rivers which my two older grandsons tried out and absolutely loved. If you’re travelling with your family, I couldn’t recommend it enough.”
