Atlantis, The Palm wins My Planet Travel Awards’ Best Hotel in the Middle East and Africa

Atlantis, The Palm, the leading entertainment resort destination in the Middle East, has been crowned the winner of My Planet Travel Awards’ “Best Hotel in the Middle East and Africa”.
The My Planet Travel Awards are a unique partnership with Russia’s main state television group, All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK), represented primarily by Moya Planeta TV, Russia’s leading travel and leisure network. Voted for exclusively by the Russian public and by Russian travel industry professionals, the Awards provide a snapshot of the growth of this dynamic market and celebrate the most popular destinations, resorts and services. The leading international and Russian hotels, resorts, destinations and service providers were invited to join the shortlist and enter the My Planet Awards. Atlantis, The Palm strives to provide only the best to its guests through its comprehensive offerings and was therefore an ideal nominee.

The prestigious award was presented to Atlantis, The Palm on 22 September 2011 in Moscow, Russia. “Atlantis is thrilled to be recognized as the Best Hotel in the Middle East and Africa by the Russian voters.  Russia is a key market for us and there is a very high standard of competition that exists within the Middle East, therefore we are very honoured,” commented Serge Zaalof, Chief Operating Officer for Atlantis, The Palm. “We will work hard and hope to continue to deliver exceptional experiences for our Russian guests,” he continued.

With its enviable location atop the crescent of The Palm, the opening of Atlantis was a landmark event, redefining tourism in Dubai as the first truly integrated entertainment resort. Transporting guests into a dazzling, imaginative world, the resort encompasses a 46 hectare site with 17 hectares of water themed amusement at AQUAVENTURE, extensive fresh and salt-water pools and lagoon exhibits, an open-aired marine habitat second only to Mother Nature, a seemingly endless stretch of beach, luxury boutiques, numerous dining choices including three celebrity chef restaurants, an exciting nightlife experience, ShuiQi Spa & Fitness Centre, and 5,600m² of meeting and function space.
