Once you’ve finished your chef-prepared meal (served on Royal Doulton china), stretch your legs with a visit to the airline’s Onboard Lounge and enjoy a cocktail or two before retreating to bed. Freshen up before you land with a complimentary amenity kit filled with beauty essentials including Bulgari perfume and luxurious skincare products.

A nod to its mythical namesake, the hotel is decadently styled in oceanic decor, with thalassic-like sculptures, ever-flowing water features and a pervading colour palette of gold meshed with blue. Rooms draw their inspiration from the sea, such as the Underwater Suite’s submerged bedroom set-up, or the Deluxe King Room’s oceanic adornments and turquoise accents. Housing 23 restaurants (including foodie havens from celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay), an aquatic adventure park, private beaches, lounges, and palatial pools aplenty, there’s an infinite array of activities to experience while staying at Atlantis, The Palm.

The Dubai Journey
Boldly opulent, spilling with culture and vibrancy, descending into Dubai is a soul-stirring experience. A dreamscape of boundless burnt orange deserts making way for a skyline of soaring silhouettes, gleaming majestically in the sunlight. Fearless in its pursuit for the very best, from its indefatigable luxury, to its visionary architecture and cultural delights, a honeymoon in Dubai offers juxtapositions of opulence and escapism. Grandeur or seclusion. A journey that shapes around your mood.
Drink in sunsets of molten pink skies crashing against the jewel-like turquoise of the Arabian Sea, ponder the exotic tastes, scents and sounds that derive from hundreds of diverse cultures converging together, or imagine the endless string of extravagant activities, from shopping to sailing to lounging lazily by the pool or dancing under the stars.
