Near completion, the Palm Jumeira Island(s) is another ambitious project in Dubai. A large group of man-made islands in the shape of a palm tree have been built extending from the mainland. The islands will contain many private villas as well as several resort hotels. The large building shown in the photograph is that of a mega resort called the Atlantis, which opened its doors in September 2008. The rest of the Palm islands are nearing completion. This project has been replicated in other parts of Dubai, in Jebel Ali and Deira, and also as the World Islands.

Atlantis is the majestic focal point of Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island that has captured the world’s imagination with its magnificent scale and ingenuity. From the moment of arrival, you’re immersed in a dazzling world of imagination, pleasure and luxury. The resort offers relaxation and thrills for couples and families alike, including a landmark hotel, unique marine habitats, an exhilarating water park, pristine white beaches, world-class cuisine, indulgent spa and cosmopolitan boutiques.
In the Aquaventure Park, the most exciting thing to do it to experince 'The Leap of Faith' - a daring 27.5 meter near vertical drop down the face of Ziggurat propelling the body surfers through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark-filled lagoon at heart-pounding speed !
From the magnificent facade alone showing its humongous size, no one will doubt Atlantis is fabulous! We were lucky to see it despite the soaring heat last April 2010. It was unbelievable as the sheer size is mind boggling for me!
