One of the world’s most iconic and recognizable resort hotels, the Atlantis, Palm Island, is situated on a palm-tree-shaped artificial island just off Dubai’s Jumeira coast. The Atlantis opened in 2008 to rave reviews and quickly became a much sought-after destination for the world traveller. Now, nine years later, the hotel is being renovated to update the rooms and improve upon what is already an undeniably remarkable luxury experience.

The resort, boasting a mile of beach access and views of the Arabian Gulf, has its own water park, the Aquaventure, but is also less than 10 miles from Wild Wadi Water Park and the world class Mall of the Emirates, and just four miles away from Dubai Marina Mall. The hotel has more than 1,500 guest rooms spread across two wings (the East and West Towers) linked by the Royal Bridge Suite and the adjoining beach, Nasimi Beach, serves as a venue for concerts and other events. Feeling like something more relaxing? visit the salon or the spa (or even the gym), before hitting the nightclub up later (if you’re traveling with the little ones, there’s a kids’ club, too).

Known also for its world-class service and accommodating staff, the rooms of the Atlantis are fully equipped with flat screens, complimentary wifi, and the requisite mini bar. Scattered among the loveliest of standard rooms are lavish suites with sitting areas as well as some that also include terraces, whirlpool baths and living rooms. For the more adventurous, they also have some upgrades that include floor to ceiling windows with underwater views!

The accommodations are luxurious, the entertainment is fun whether it’s shopping or splashing in the water parks, but the food, the food! Wake up to a complimentary breakfast and then choose from one of the 23, yes twenty-three, restaurants on site including Ossiano (pictured), Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen & Bar, Seafire Steakhouse, TBJ for burgers, Asia Republic, Nobu, and more. You may want to have an early dinner as well as a late dinner just to be able to sample all the restaurants.
