Speckled with beaches and islands, Dubai has a rich history of Arabian lore. While Dubai boasts an embracing mix of historic Bedouin times and the recent development of high-rise buildings, travellers will also experience a diverse culture within the city’s themed resorts.

Atlantis, The Palm

As you might expect, there are plenty of luxury hotels in the opulent playground of Dubai but Atlantis, The Palm is one of the best in this category. The property’s Atlantis theme combines the fictional island of Atlantis with a distinctive blend of Arabian elements. Located in the apex of the Palm Jumeirah, this 5-star property offers many accommodation options. Noteworthy is the Royal Bridge Suite that overlooks the Arabian Gulf and The Palm. The suite, with three bedrooms, has luxurious amenities such as butler service and a private elevator. Also included are complimentary spa treatments and unlimited access to the Lost Chambers Aquarium.

Drawing inspiration from the travels of 14th century Arab explorer Ibn Battuta, the Battuta Suites of Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate have motifs from the nine destinations he visited. Guests will have no trouble in staying occupied with the hotel’s on-site wellness facilities such as the spa and rooftop pool, as well as complimentary access to Ocean Beach Club, a private beach featuring an infinity pool and a river.

There is an impeccable attention to detail like the hand painted frescos, murals, and exquisite pieces of Turkish artwork. Guests can indulge in a culinary adventure by trying the Turkish cuisine at Lalezar or other delicacies from around the world at Plaj, overlooking the Arabian Gulf.
