Leave Winter Behind and Escape to Atlantis

Posted October 8, 2008 by BookingBuddy

These last two weeks, the wind and rain have made the long sunny days of summer seem but a distant memory. The days are getting shorter, our skirts are getting longer and our tans are getting paler. The general outlook seems to be bleak.

So, what’s the best way to counter the overwhelming sense of apathy and recapture those fleeting days of summer? Well, you could splurge on a three-month supply of home tanning products, but that usually results in you resembling a tangerine. Or, you could simply make your way to Atlantis! No, not the mythical city that was lost underwater thousands of years ago, but a resort based on the legend.  And where else would you find such a resort, but on a man-made island in Dubai?

Atlantisthepalm Atlantis, The Palm, is being billed as the largest water-themed resort in the parched Middle East. Situated on the Palm Jumeirah, a palm-tree-shaped island features a huge water playground with seven slides (including two shark-filled lagoons for those who want to feel like they’ve been held captive by a Bond villain), a dolphin conservation centre and an open-air marine habitat.

So, if the onset of another grey winter is getting you down, why not try swimming with sharks and dolphins to make the folks in the office jealous? You could even top it all off by flying to Dubai and back on Singapore Airlines or Emirates and trying out their double-bedded cabins or shower-spas.
