Our first time visiting Dubai and I’m pretty sure we couldn’t have chosen a better place for this family getaway. Atlantis, The Palm is made for adventurous kids and will keep them excited and busy throughout your stay. From the impressive aquarium as soon as you enter to the sprawling water park and amazing dining outlets you be spoilt with choice. We highly recommend booking an Imperial Club Room where you’ll get access to the Imperial Lounge and enjoy luxurious breakfasts and evening cocktails. Imperial Rooms also have exclusive access to a private beach where the service is impeccable and ambiance is always five star. Below are our favourite experiences during our stay.
Atlantis, The Palm Checklist:
Aquaventure waterpark: Hop on the resort shuttle and get dropped off at Asia’s biggest waterpark. There’s an area for every age group including babies and families with children over 120cm can partake in all the adrenaline inducing fun. Our favourite ride was the group slide at Poseidon Tower.
The Lost Chambers: One of the most incredible aquariums we’ve visited to date. You get free entry as a hotel guest so go as many times as you like. We loved the Fish Tales Tour where the kids went behind the scenes with a marine biologist. We got the see shark eggs, baby sting rays, and learned about all the species at the aquarium, how they’re fed and cared for, and even their unique release program.
The Royal Pool: This is where you get that iconic photo of Atlantis’s unique architecture. There’s plenty of space to laze and swim and as the pool is so gigantic you never feel crowded. Lifeguards are on duty to ensure everyone’s safety and you’re just steps to the picturesque beach if you’re in the mood for sandcastles.
WaveHouse: Bowling, kids play area, buzzing ambiance, and mouthwatering comfort food, this spot makes meal time fun for all ages. It’s a great option for families who are looking for a casual venue and you seriously can’t beat those burgers and pizzas.
Seafire Steakhouse: For a memorable dinner or celebration head over to Seafire for our most decadent meal during our stay. We are a foodie family so loved the fresh shellfish and truly impressive selection of steaks. Even the Kids Menu serves mini filets.
Don’t forget to check out the Kids Club where children can sign up for fun activities throughout the day and of course the stunning sunset from the terrace of the Imperial Lounge. The rooms are spacious enough for a family of four or book a connecting room if you need. The ideal choice for a long weekend where the whole family can play and indulge.
