    The Atlantis in the distance (Feb 08)
    2 more images

    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 @ night !
    1 more image

    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!

    In its website, we can learn the ff:

    The Palm Atlantis accommodates 1,373 spacious guest rooms and 166 suites. Each hotel room is designed with subtle oceanic and Arabic influences, complete with spectacular views of the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf or Palm Jumeirah itself

    Atlantis has a distinct aquatic theme that continues throughout the guest accommodation.
    Each of the one bedroom suites have all the home comforts you could ever need.
    The Atlantis Dubai hotel rooms are a unique selection of living havens with a collection of Super Suites.

    The Imperial Club at Atlantis is designed to be a resort within a resort, suitable for ideal Dubai holidays.

    I totally agree as we lapped up the immense beauty of this place, awesome! The bonus, we were here for free!

    The Palm Islands Jumeirah maybe less than what it was envisioned due to the world financial crises of 2008, but there is still a jewel amidst the Palm, it is located at the farthest Frond, connected from the other palm fronds via an underwater tunnel and the Palm Monorail, The Atlantis The Palm Resort and Hotel!

    I will have separate tips for the Lost Chambers Aquarium and Aquaventure Waterpark.

    This integrated resort and park is different from it's sister in the Bahamas, wherein it has no casinos or gambling as this is an Islamic Country after all. The Atlantis Resort is the second jewel of Dubai after the Burj Al Arab and the third jewel, the Burj Khalifa Tower. Atlantis Resort offers luxe accomodations but not as expensive as the Burj Al Arab or Jumeirah Beach Hotel. Guests staying at the resort have unlimited complimentary access to Aquaventure Waterpark, the largest in Dubai, and The Lost Chambers Aquarium, an underwater maze themed on ancient Atlantis with amazing viewpoints to see over 65,000 marine animals. The resort offers 2 wings, also referred to as the Royal Towers, consisting of the East and the West Tower, both linked together by the Royal Bridge Suite. The resort’s comprises 1,500 guestrooms and suites with private balconies and views over The Palm and the Persian Gulf. The Imperial Club has over 150 rooms and suites with exclusive services and a private club lounge and views of the Arabian Sea or The Palm and Dubai skyline.

    according to wikipedia:

    The 46 ha (110 acres) five-star resort includes attractions for children and adults.[7] The entire attraction is a 17 ha (42 acres) water park with seven water slides and a 2.3-kilometre river ride consisting of rides with cascades, tidal waves and rapids, and the Mesopotamian-styled Ziggurat temple reaching over 30 metres into the sky and featuring seven water slides two of which catapult riders through shark filled lagoons, which is called as The Lost Chambers.[8] It is an underwater exhibit with over 65,000 fish and sea creatures including The Ambassador Lagoon.[8] which is an 11-million-litre marine habitat, with a viewing panel looking into the mystical ruins of Atlantis that is Dolphin Bay, a 4.5- hectare dolphin education and conservation center allows guests the opportunity to meet and interact with dolphins.[8]

    The resort has a stretch of beach, 1,900 m2 (20,000 sq ft) of retail space with boutiques, spa, fitness, meeting, and function spaces.

    Restaurants[edit source]

    Atlantis, The Palm has over 20 dining restaurants including three world renowned chef restaurants:
    Nobu is the restaurant that chef Nobu Matsuhisa created to redefine Japanese cuisine. The menu is complemented by a sushi bar and a wood burning oven.
    At Ronda Locatelli, Giorgio Locatelli has created a restaurant that blends the charm of an Italian countryside with the modernity of Dubai.
    Rostang is a Brasserie created by Michelle Rostang that offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a French brasserie featuring a French patisserie. The menu includes the signature Pate en Croute.

    The lost chambers of Atlantis

    by vpas Written Mar 27, 2014

    Atlantis is a hotel situated in the Palm jumeira region of Dubai. The mall adjoining the hotel and a theme hall is open to the public. The theme hall named as the Lost chambers of Atlantis -- has an entry fee of 100 aed / adult. It is a fascinating thing to do while in Dubai.
    While here also make sure you ride the mono rail from the station adjoining the mall. If you can afford it, the mall has some real trendy upmarket shopping to do,
