Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Atlantis The Palm
What it is
A magical mega-resort that has it all: more than 1,500 waterfront rooms, a 65,000-animal aquarium, over-the-top waterpark and multiple celeb chef-driven restaurants.
What it isn't
Just for grown-ups. The Atlantis Kids Club has an underwater theater and arts and craft zone; they’ll even plan birthday parties in their arcade complete with custom 3D cakes.
What we think
If you’ve ever wanted to stay in an underwater suite where your floor to ceiling windows (and deep soaking tub) face a lagoon that teems with rays, sharks and multitudes of tropically-hued fish, you’ve come to the right spot. Atlantis, The Palm has created it, and thrown in a private elevator, 24-hour butler service and gratis interconnecting rooms for good measure. Of course, if you’d rather sleep somewhere more orthodox, they have a bevy of options—from calming Palm View hotel rooms in turquoise and sandy hues to a Presidential Suite that has its own pool table, cocktail lounge, dining room and, yes, your own personal butler available at any hour. Of course, in a resort like this one, you won’t be spending much time in your room—not when restaurants like Nobu Dubai and Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen & Bar are on the premises.
You're here because
You’re a doer, and the hotel’s Bucket List experiences are exactly that—including dining underwater at Ossiano and hand-feeding sharks in the aquarium.
They say you should never meet your heroes, but when it comes to Gordon Ramsay—or his dishes, anyway—you definitely don’t agree. Everything on the menu at his Bread Street Kitchen & Bar is one of the top 10 things you’ve ever eaten, from the charcoal grilled grass-fed angus sirloin to the transcendent tamarind spiced chicken wings.
