There are three distinct attractions on offer here.  Even if you do not fancy or want to visit the water parks Aquaventure or Dolphin Bay the Atlantis Resort, Underwater World & Lost Chambers are still a must visit whilst in Dubai, with its mall and multitude of restaurants and bars you won’t be short of something to do.

From the beach to river slides and water rides, with activities to suit the young to old. The water park contains rides such as the tower of Neptune which is a huge water slide being 61 meters long and 9 stories high which catapults you through lagoons then through acrylic tubes surrounded by five different types of sharks. The New Tower of Poseidon is packed with never before seen, heart pumping waterslides plus the Middle East’s longest zip line circuit. Then theres the Rapids. Whilst on your inner-tube you will experience the high intensity rapids, wave surges and waterfalls. This is also the sophisticated park transport system that allows you to float along or return to the waterslides without ever having to get off your inner-tube. It’s one never-ending adventure.

There are rides for everyone but not for the faint hearted.

This is set in a massive four-and-a-half hectare setting that is based on the dolphin’s natural habitat and is carefully created in a tropical and lush setting. The dolphins are both graceful and full of play to interact with the hotels guests in large recreated lagoons. Similarly for day visitors as well as the hotel guests, weather you want to play, hold “hands” or having a cuddle to having a 90 minute session with the dolphins which includes riding alongside the dolphins which will be created in your mind as a memory of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

During the construction and creation of Atlantis the Palm the discovery of streets were uncovered believed to have been buried in the Arabian gulf thousands of years ago, it was a theory that these remains were in fact from the lost city of Atlantis. Now a creation of glass passages resembling streets has been placed underwater to try and resemble the lost city where you are surrounded by over 65000 marine animals including sharks stingrays and fish. Even if your not staying at this hotel the whole complex is a must see and do whilst in Dubai.
