My brother Hussain and I got to go to a very special hotel called the Atlantis. It’s in Dubai, which is the largest city in the Unites Arab Emirates. This country is east of Saudi Arabia. Dubai and the hotel are on the tip of land surrounded by the Persian Gulf. Water and desert together. There are a lot of new buildings there. The hotel Atlantis is huge with many things to do. It’s built on a strip of beach that is separated from the coast with pools and palm trees everywhere. The inside of the hotel is luxurious. From our balcony upstairs, we could look to the north for miles across the gulf water to see the skyscrapers from downtown Dubai.
We had lots to do at the Atlantis. Hussain enjoyed the Lost Chamber Underwater Aquarium. Parts of it allowed people to go diving in with the fish, even small sharks and rays. My favorite place was Dolphin Bay. Guests could suit up and go in the shallow water to play and visit with real dolphins outside. My brother and I both liked the Aquaventure Water Park where we could go on giant water slides, like an outdoor water amusement park. I went on the very highest one that other people were afraid of. It was fun!
At night everything was lit up. There were many restaurants and any kind of food you could want right in the hotel. We never wanted to go to bed until we were very tired. Everything here makes you think of the ocean. It’s a fun and restful place.
Until next time!
