Atlantis, The Palm, located at the center of the crescent of Dubai’s famous palm, is the first entertainment resort destination in the region.

The unique ocean-themed resort first greeted guests in 2008 and features a variety of marine and entertainment attractions, all within the 46-hectare resort. It is home to one of the biggest waterparks in the world, boasting an extensive open-air marine habitat with rich marine life set in lagoons and large tanks, including The Lost Chambers Aquarium, a maze of underwater corridors, and passageways affording a glimpse into ancient Atlantis.

The resort has an impressive collection of luxury boutiques and shops, plus extensive meeting and convention facilities. It is also known as a leading culinary destination in the region, where guests can take their pick from a collection of 35 world-renowned restaurants: Bread Street Kitchen & Bar, Hakkasan, Nobu, Seafire Steakhouse & Bar, and the award-winning underwater restaurant, Ossiano, to name but a few.
