Atlantis, The Palm : A New Luxury Hotel in Dubai


For a glimpse of just what $1.5 billion of hotel looks like, first cross the 300m-long bridge that links mainland Dubai to the extraordinary exercise in land reclamation that is the Palm Jumeirah.

The resort consists of two towers linked by a bridge, with a total of approximately two thousand rooms. There are two monorail stations connecting the resort to the main section of the Palm Jumeirah islands.

The resort contains a giant open-air tank with 65,000 fish, stingrays and other sea creatures and a dolphinarium with more than two dozen bottlenose dolphins flown in, amid controversy, from the Solomon Islands.

It is a hotel with 1729 rooms and 17 restaurants, but the hotel's top floor aims squarely at the ultra-wealthy. A three-bedroom, three-bathroom suite complete with gold-leaf 18-seat dining table is on offer for USD25,000 a night. The cheapest room is at the average rate of USD 650.The hotel was just opened on 24th of September 2008 and be the first to open on The Palm, a man-made island off the coast of the UAE that is shaped like a palm tree. It was touted as one of the emirate's most extravagant hotels to date.

Those are amazing photos, do you think they are real? The restaurant one looks like it may have been digital to show people before it was actually built, the people just don't look real, neither do the aquatic animals.
Either way, one more place I know I will never get to see, $650 a night for the cheapest room - I can hit the Lazy River in the Dells for a week -granted no sharks overhead.
