Dubai, May 4, 2011
Atlantis, The Palm, the ocean-themed destination resort in Dubai, has announced special summer offers valid from May 8 to September 30.
The offers include unlimited complimentary access to The Lost Chambers, Aquaventure waterpark, preferential rates to swim with the dolphins at Dolphin Bay and complimentary daily shuttle service to various shopping malls.
Aquaventure, the region’s largest water park offers thrilling water rides and slides and non-stop splashing fun. The 17 hectare park uses 18 million litres of fresh water to power seven waterslides, a 2.3 kilometre river ride with tidal waves and pools, water rapids and white water chargers.
Lost Chambers features 65,000 unique marine life and includes over 20 marine habitats. Guests can travel through mazes of underground tunnels and passageways bringing them into close contact with the advanced inventions of the ancient Atlanteans. Touch tanks filled with starfish and pencil urchins, both found in local Arabian waters, and horse shoe crabs, the spiders of the sea, allow guests to touch, feel, interact and learn about sea life.
Special exhibits are dedicated to different sea creatures, such as the delicate Moon Jellyfish, busy lobster and glittery anchovies. Every Tuesday, guests can enjoy Arabic hospitality in the Arabian Family Nights from 7pm to 10pm. As guests enter The Lost Chambers, they are greeted with refreshing rosewater and welcomed with the warm scents of Arabic Oud.
Arabic coffee and dates are served throughout the evening and a themed Lost Chambers colouring and activity book is given to kids at the end of their journey. Navigators will be on hand to share their wealth of knowledge on the myth and animals encountered throughout the journey of The Lost Chambers.
At the Dolphin Bay, Dolphin Encounter, Dolphin Adventure and Royal Swim give swimmers and non-swimmers an opportunity to get up-close and personal with the dolphins. Spanning 4.5 hectares, this state-of-the-art dolphin education and conservation centre boasts an unparalleled habitat.
