Dubai’s Atlantis Resort

 Some of my favorite pictures from Inside the £800m Dubai hotel boasting a £13,000-a-night suite and dolphins flown in from the South Pacific:

Quotes:

"Much of the focus at Atlantis, modeled on a sister resort in the Bahamas, is on ocean-themed family entertainment."

"The resort contains a giant open-air tank with 65,000 fish, stingrays and other sea creatures and a dolphinarium with more than two dozen bottlenose dolphins flown in, amid controversy, from the Solomon Islands. But the hotel’s top floor aims squarely at the ultra-wealthy. A three-bedroom, three-bathroom suite complete with gold-leaf 18-seat dining table is on offer for £13,000 a night."

"But don’t expect to find roulette wheels at Dubai’s Atlantis. Islamic prohibitions against gambling ensure casinos remain off-limits."

Good – there’s an area where we have an edge!  🙂
