Situated at the top of the Palm Jumeirah, a man-made, palm-shaped island connected to Dubai by road, the five-star Atlantis, the Palm hotel and luxury resort is a magnificent, other-worldly sight, which is why there’s always people gathered on the corniche outside taking photos of it. Also home to a huge waterpark, restaurants, nightclubs and more, if you can’t stay the night, stop by for coffee to get in for a look around. Gaze in wonder at the (controversial) indoor aquarium. Fodor’s Travel calls it “five star lavishness”.
