The unique ocean-themed resort features a variety of marine and entertainment attractions, as well as 17 hectares of waterscape amusement at Aquaventure Waterpark. Fun for everyone!

Staying at Atlantis is all about family fun. The resort is home to one of the largest open-air marine habitats in the world, with over 65,000 marine animals in lagoons and displays including The Lost Chambers Aquarium, a maze of underwater corridors and passageways providing a journey through ancient Atlantis.

The ultimate attraction, the Aquaventure park is an adrenaline pumping experience with great  exhilarating and fun ride, slides and a newly open area for younger guests (below 1.2m). Splashers Island is fun addition to current children’s area ‘Splashers Mountain’. Josefin absolutely loved it. It definitely makes the Aquaventure suitable for all ages. We also loved our little afternoon break by the sea, best way to kick back and relax on 700 metres of pristine private beach within the water park.

The highlight of our stay was our encounter with sharks and rays, truly a fun family experience to remember and talk about for years to come. We headed toward the Tower of Neptune around 1pm, for our Shark Safari experience. No need to have scuba diving knowledge for this marine animal adventure, but children must 8 years old minimum. So little Jo was a little spectator, watching from the edge of the Lagoon.

The experience allows non-certified visitors to become marine explorers and walk underwater wearing a special helmet. During the 20-minute Shark Safari, participants get up close and personal with the many Black Tip Reef Sharks, rare Marble Rays and exotic and colourful fish. It is impressive at first but the briefing is straight forward while the experience well organized and supervised. We felt comfortable and excited about it. Thanks to the underwater photographer we got lots of great memories to show our friends.

Your Atlantis experience is also about gourmet food! Atlantis The Palm is known for as the culinary destination in the region with a collection of world-renowned restaurants including Bread Street Kitchen & Bar by Gordon Ramsay, Nobu and Ronda Locatelli. We sure enjoyed our family dinners, always delicious, in a gorgeous setting. The success of the Atlantis to is assure parents are happy in an exquisite environment while children feel welcome and entertained.

Thank you Atlantis for this memorable weekend! See you again soon.
