Sea Trial Vessel Um Hurrair

After our good weekend tour in Atlantis next day back to work, I joined the sea trial with Johan as his back to work and continued the weekday with full of passion in his work. I had witnessed and experienced how it feels like to be inside the engine down below the yacht. It's amazing how they fit inside the small passage.

Visit to Atlantis Hotel

Atlantis, The Palm is the flagship resort on The Palm Jumeirah - the first resort to open its doors on Dubai's revolutionary island. The stunning new 1,539-room resort first welcomed guests in September 2008. With its enviable location atop the crescent of The Palm Jumeirah, the opening of Atlantis, The Palm continues to redefine tourism in Dubai as it is the area's first truly integrated entertainment resort. Reflecting vision to transport 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-air marine habitat, a seemingly endless stretch of beach, luxury boutiques, numerous dining choices including four celebrity chef restaurants, an exciting nightclub, a Spa and Fitness Club, and 5,600m2 of meeting and function space.
As the weekday an over worked week for us, Johan & I made a treat to ourselves to made a tour in Atlantis Palm Hotel. We went to there and here and eveywhere around the hotel so much fun to have that we can't even decide which area should we start exploring during the tour. But we really made sure that we go all place to check it out such as the Aquaventure, the lost chambersand the Dolphin Bay.

After the long day of our tour went straight to fine dining in restaurant also featured one of the celebrity restaurant, Ossiano from the Latin word for ocean, is perfectly named. This elegant restaurant features fine dining and contemporary Catalan cuisine enthused by the sea and infused with a modern Mediterranean flavour.
Inspired by the culinary excellence of Chef Santi Santamaria, who has been awarded the coveted Michelin three stars for the authenticity and quality of his renowned cuisine, Ossiano combines extraordinary food with a mesmerising underwater view of the Ambassador Lagoon.

Wander through the passageways of The Lost Chambers and come face to face with marine life from around the world including sharks, giant catfish, giant arapaima and more. This fascinating journey adds more life and fun in Atlantis.
As we stroll to the long passage of the Lost Chamber we had a lot of fun inside and amazing thoughs comes to our mind back in ages were the Lost chamber had been found

Aquaventure is overflowing with 42 fun-filled acres, Master Blasters, speedslide, rivers, rapids, Splashers children’s play area, lush tropical landscapes and a private beach.
