Atlantis, love at first sight!

I have always loved beaches and resorts, so far “Atlantis The Palm” located in Jumeirah Dubai was one of the unforgettable ones!

Ate Che, Vera and I visited the waterpark, we were there at around 10:00 in the morning.

Once you enter the lobby, you will be greeted by a colorful ceiling that artists would surely adore.

If you have a residence visa like ours, you will only pay 140.00 AED instead of 200.00 AED for the Aquaventure Park ( in peso it’s around 1400.00 php or a bit higher depending on the exchange rate but to make life easier, I always multipy it by 10.00 ). The place itself was really big! Aquaventure is just a part of the waterpark and it was the only place we can afford to visit, below is the full map of Atlantis The Palm.

First thing we tried was the Torrent River, which was connected to the Rapids, Lagoon and Splashers. I tell you, this was one hell of a long ride! At some point I want to shout “STOP” but still it keeps on going.

this is where we started

After that, we were really exhausted but it won’t stop us from seeing the place. We then headed to The Ziggurat where we tried the Shark Lagoon and Leap of Faith. For the first one, it was a bit scary coz it’s dark and too bad I was not able to see any sharks… only fishes. The latter one was the best part, standing at 27.5m tall and 61m long, the famous Leap of Faith. Hold your breath and pray as you slide down and scream at the top of your lungs. I was actually wearing a white cover up and it was all over me, so one advice, wear something tight! Good thing my bikini top was knotted twice, if not I’ll be on the list of “topless victims”.

take a deep breath and screammmmmmm!

So much for the pool, we hit the beach this time. But before that, we needed some refreshments!

quench your thirst

On the way to the beach area, we decided to finish our drinks first. Sat on the grass while drinking our juices.

The water temperature felt so good, just the proper mix of hot and cold water that makes you want to float all day long, but don’t step on the sand without slippers! You will burn your feet for sure.

be safe on the beach side

After 20 minutes of beach pleasure, we decided to take the shower and just take pictures afterwards.

It was a tiring adventure but worth it, a must-try for a lifetime.
