It's difficult to know where to start with this vast luxury resort, but the fact that it includes Underwater Suites with views onto the 'lost city of Atlantis' should give you some idea of the flavour of Atlantis the Palm.

Other things to wow kids are an award-winning waterpark, with a jaw-dropping 79 slides and attractions, and you get to ride through the Atlantis-themed aquarium, there's ray feeding and diving lessons. After that, the choice of beaches and swimming pools might even seem a bit 'meh'...

Staff here have a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. Kids' clubs and activities cater for ages right up to 17, and there's a babysitting service for those who want to venture out and discover all that Dubai has to offer. If not, the resort has a whopping 23 restaurants and 6 bars, catering to all ages and tastes. The most famous is the underwater seafood restaurant (open to ages 10+), and there's also a Gordon Ramsay restaurant and a branch of Nobu, although kids tend to favour the Italian restaurant and the burger joint!


Flights to Dubai are available from across the UK. Atlantis The Palm is about a 35-minute drive from Dubai International Airport.
