Visiting Atlantis - The Palm in Dubai
 
I read somewhere that you can only enter the Atlantis if you are staying there as a guest or have restaurant reservations. Is this true?

I think you're confusing Atlantis with the Burj Al Arab which you certainly can't access without a room or dining reservation.

You absolutely can visit Atlantis, although you'll be limited to public areas. Clearly you can use restaurants and leisure facilities as a non-resident if you're happy to pay.

ok, thanks.

What do you want to do at Atlantis?

Just exploring the property.

I tried to explore the property from the northern side but a security guard stopped me and and asked whether I had a reservation. I did not and couldn't pass. I find that a little off-putting. Other such properties have no problem with that.

You're fine in the lower floor area around the restaurants, the aquarium etc but you cannot go upstairs into the 'guest' areas unless you have a pass. It's worth a visit. Amazing place.

The floor below the lobby is, as Deleerious mentioned, free for anyone to wander, but you cannot then get up the stairs to the lobby level.

I found out through two separate occasions (two years apart!) that you can't just go into the main lobby of the hotel itself, unless you are a resident or have a restaurant reservation at one of the places within the hotel building. My mum was curious to have a look, but was left disappointed both times.

Bread Street Kitchen, for example, is inside "The Avenues" annex of the complex (alongside most of the other Atlantis restaurants) and not inside the hotel building, so eating there will not allow you to pass the security guard into the hotel. If you want to go into the main hotel building, you have to pick the restaurant which is inside the hotel itself, such as Saffron or Ayamna.

if we have a rental car, can we park there?

Yes, but I think the only choice is to valet, and you need to get a stamp on the valet ticket after using the restaurant (if not an in-house guest).

You can park for free on the road just in front of the hotel. There you can also find a few food trucks.

Can you or anyone inform of how much they charge to visit Atlantis and/or leisure facilities?

Which airline is the best to visit Atlantis from the UK? I know a couple of like: Emirates, Oman Air, Lufthansa or any other?

i'm not trying to be difficult, but why would anyone want to visit a hotel they're not staying at?

I'm no fan of Dubai, but surely there are more interesting things to do there


Travelling from uk specifically to visit Atlantis sounds unhinged.

I didn't ask just for visiting Atlantis and if I am not wrong, no one will do. :)

I am not that type of person to visit the Dubai just of Atlantis. ;)

Agree with sharp5flat9. You can access lounge or restaurant area in Atlantis even if you are not staying there.
