From tots to teens, this luxurious haven serves up a truly magical banquet of entertainment, games and leisure activities to ensure every day is a feast of fun.
Here’s a peek at some of the wonderful facilities and activities for children at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai.
This is the place where children are encouraged to ‘play, create and explore’. The well-equipped club caters for two age groups - little ones aged three to seven and older children aged eight to 12.
A Play Zone features games, activities and challenges, a Creation Zone has arts and crafts activities, a Command Centre lets little ones use the latest games consoles and an Underwater Theatre enable them to get close to sea creatures and watch movies.
The morning programme features a range of diverse activities including junior yoga, necklace-making, dodgeball, newspaper craft and beach games. In the afternoon activities include Mandala colouring, basketball fever, target challenge, charades and card creations.
The evening programme also has special events to keep the young hotel guests fully entertained, with a variety of fabulous theme nights running throughout the week.
This is the place for teenagers to get together for some lively entertainment during their stay at Atlantis The Palm. The hotel promotes it as the ‘ultimate teen-only hangout’ where young people, aged 13 to 17 can ‘chill, play, dance and connect’.
The Zone is equipped with all the latest high-tech gear including computers and games consoles, plus there’s a disco, complete with microphones for impromptu sing-alongs. Teenagers will also be delighted to know The Zone has been declared ‘out of bounds’ for parents!
This attraction is ideal for letting young children get down to some serious physical fun in the fresh air and sunshine. It features a fantastic outdoor play centre which includes an impressive range of structures, including a pirate ship, tunnels and rope climbs.
It’s fun and food all the way for kids at the Wavehouse, where the attractions include a bowling alley and a chance to test your surfing skills on the Surf’s Up Wave Rider. There’s also an activity area called LEVELS which features obstacle courses, soft play areas and more than 50 arcade games.
When you’ve had your fill of fun, it’s time to have your fill of food at Wavehouse, the venue billed as ‘Dubai’s liveliest dining and entertainment hub’. An industrial-chic restaurant - which has a dedicated menu for kids - offers a range of tasty treats including burgers, pizzas, BBQ dishes, waffles, cakes and sundaes.
This is the place where children can really marvel at the wonders of the ocean in an incredible 11 million-litre aquarium, which is home to 65,000 creatures, including sharks and rays.
There’s also the opportunity for children to take a behind-the-scenes tour to see how the marine occupants are cared for, as well as an option to sail along a clear tunnel inside the aquarium on an inflatable ring, to observe the creatures at close range. A complimentary shark-feeding show is also a must-see event.
When it comes to fun in the sun, you can’t beat splashing about at Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark.
With complimentary daily access for hotel guests, older children can enjoy over 30 slides, chutes and attractions, including the thrilling Leap of Faith, the high-octane Poseidon’s Revenge and Aquaconda, the world’s largest tube-waterslide amongst others.
Aquaventure Waterpark, however, is a no-go area for children under 1.2 metres tall, so Splashers is a custom-built mini park within a park for young pleasure seekers.
Featuring 14 superb waterslides, a safe swimming area, giant water buckets, an obstacle course and access to a Lazy River, this fun spot for kids has soft surfaces and lifeguards to ensure little ones are safe at all times.
If you want to treat your children to a unique action-packed holiday adventure Atlantis, The Palm really is a fun-tastic place to stay!
