An Amazing Hotel

Atlantis Hotel Dubai

You remember my post about the world’s largest swimming pool don’t you? It was floating around on the Internet getting sent to all and sundry via email. Well, here’s another one I received via email. Faithfully reproduced here as another X-factor post. You’ve just got to check out (or should that be check in at) the Atlantis Hotel Dubai.

The Atlantis Hotel in Dubai , one of the world’s most anticipated hotels, finally opened its doors on September 24. Situated on 113 acres of the Palm Jumeirah, the hotel boasts over 1539 rooms.

1.  Neptune and Poseidon Suites are exclusive to the Atlantis Hotel, with both the bedroom and bathrooms having views directly into the mesmerising underwater world of the Ambassador Lagoon.

3. In keeping with the water theme, the Lost Chamber is a maze of underwater halls and tunnels under the Ambassador Lagoon. It has over 65,000 fish.

4. Want to see sea food before you eat it?  The Ossiano is home to a three-star Michelin chef, and offers gourmet seafood with views of the exotic marine life in the Ambassador Lagoon.

8. All washed up is one for the kid in all of us. The rapids are a 2.3km path of tidal river with one metre waves through a lush tropical landscape.

  4. The last time I was in Dubai the Atlantis wasn’t ready yet, but I managed to have an underwater dinner in Underwater Restaurant in Burj Al Arab.
    Dubai is a place of superlatives that leaves many people wonder what will come next. (I am going to write few articles about the Emirates in the future)
    Thank you for sharing this with us. Dominique
