Yes, Dubai’s Atlantis Hotel opened with possibly the most expensive party ever. Reports noted how celebrities like Robert De Niro and Denzel Washington were in attendance along with pop singer Kylie Minogue, who earned a record $4 million for her performance (did not even last an hour) at the grand bash. The fireworks display, which promoters claimed could be seen from space, also was reportedly the most expensive and/or largest fireworks show of all time. The extravaganza at the new luxury hotel in Dubai defined largess.
There are plenty of tourist activities in Dubai, and many of them unique such as snow skiing in the desert at the indoor snow skiing resort. However, the Atlantis Hotel Dubai has its own activities such as Dolphin Bay where you can swim with dolphins, the large aquarium Ambassador Lagoon and a stunning water park, the Atlantis Aqua Venture Park (fancy going down the Ziggurat, a water slide that takes your through a shark lagoon?). If you have the dough needed to stay at the Atlantis Hotel, you can surely also carry out all your tourist activities in Dubai without going to the rest of the city.
The Burj Al Arab is currently the most famous hotel in the world along with being the only seven star hotel in the world (and the most expensive, etc.), and is on it’s own man-made island. The Atlantis Hotel Dubai (also referred to as Atlantis The Palm) sits at the head of the Palm Jumeirah Islands, the newest man-made islands in Dubai in the shape of, you guessed it, a palm tree. The Burj Al Arab now has competition as Dubai’s Atlantis Hotel is now one of the two most famous hotels in Dubai, and thus, the world.
