Atlantis, The Palm has fast become Dubai’s strongest family destination, as both a resort and day visitor attraction, with a variety of ocean-themed experiences.   Activities at ‘Family Fun Day’ aim to be fun and encourage family togetherness and educate.

With its enviable location atop the crescent of The Palm, Atlantis is the first fully integrated entertainment destination resort in Dubai.  Families are transported into a dazzling, imaginative world, encompassing a 46 hectare site including a marine habitat of 65,000 marine animals at Lost Chambers, a Kids Club for three to 12 year olds, Club Rush for teenagers, an incredible water adventure at AQUAVENTURE, a beautiful stretch of beach, luxury boutiques, numerous dining choices including three restaurants by world renowned chefs, a nightclub, and ShuiQi Spa & Fitness. 

Further information on the water experiences

From surreal sea life to heart-pounding water slides, children of all ages will be able to explore Atlantis and its deep connection to water and the ocean. 

The Lost Chambers - bringing the myth of Atlantis to life through a maze of underground tunnels offering underwater views into the boulevards of the ruins of Atlantis;

The Ambassador Lagoon – an 11 million litre marine habitat and underwater exhibit home to several hundred species of marine life, with a viewing panel looking right into the mythical ruins of Atlantis;

Dolphin Bay – a 4.5 hectare state-of-the-art dolphin education and conservation centre allowing guests the opportunity to meet and interact with one of the world’s most charismatic animals in an unparalleled facility.

AQUAVENTURE - a water world of over 18 million litres of water, consisting of extraordinary rides
with cascades, tidal waves and rapids, and the Mesopotamian-styled Ziggurat temple reaching over
30 metres into the sky and featuring seven heart-pumping water slides – two of which catapult riders
through shark-filled lagoons.

The waterscape at Atlantis, The Palm also features two pools - the Royal Pool, a sophisticated serene experience and the Zero Entry Pool, an energetic, engaging experience, ideal for families.  There is also an inviting 1.4 kilometre white sand beach, perfect for relaxing. 

Not to forget even the youngest visitors, Atlantis offers Splashers, a water playground featuring elaborate water games, slides and structures, providing a world of thrills and lots of water spills for  children less than 1.2 metres - and their parents.  Two enormous tipping buckets spin on their axis  and release 1200 litres of water at various intervals, dousing the occupants of Splashers playing beneath these regulated waterfalls.  Children delight in the interactive climbing frames or challenge one another across one of the five rope bridges that interconnect with ten water slides, whilst comrades use water jets and cannons on family and friends.

Kids Clubs
