Atlantis, The Palm

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Even in Dubai, known for its over-the-top design, architecture and hotels, Atlantis resort stands out. The 1,500-room property has over 20 restaurants and bars, including Ossiano, a Mediterranean-inspired seafood restaurant submerged in Atlantis’ Ambassador Lagoon where coral reefs teem with marine life. There is also a 27-treatment room spa, a 42-acre Aquaventure Waterpark, and the 1.25-acre Dolphin Bay where travelers can swim alongside the friendly animals.
