LONDON, May 24, 2011 -

The Atlantis Hotel Dubai
is a brand new lavish marine-themed
resort combining luxury with unique attractions. The most unique feature of
the Atlantis Hotel Dubai is the Ambassador Lagoon containing over 65,000 fish
and marine life, including schools of sharks, manta ray and brightly coloured
fish, such to keep the kids occupied. If that's not enough then the biggest
new water park Aquaventure should be! With thrill rides, water cascades,
slides and river-rides there is enough to keep the whole family entertained.
After a day spent in the water park head to one of the 16 restaurants and
bars at Atlantis Hotel Dubai and enjoy some dinner or drinks.

Exclusive to Virgin Holidays in the UK, is the brand new
Hilton Ras al Khaimah Resort & Spa
Distinctly Arabesque in style, the design is sumptuously magical with rich,
earthy colours, romantically dimmed lanterns and exotic furnishings. The
Hilton Ras al Khaimah Resort & Spa boasts an unrivalled location in a
private bay offering 1.5 kilometres of beautiful sandy beach. For those in
need of pampering, there are fantastic spa facilities including a
traditional Turkish Hammam bath and 9 treatment rooms. The Hilton Ras al
Khaimah Resort & Spa also boasts 3 wonderful free-form swimming pools to
laze by, a fully equipped fitness centre and water sports in abundance. If
you feel like exploring, there are dune safaris to tempt you and trips to
the breathtaking Musandam Fjords in a traditional Dhow boat.

A great choice for a city break with a difference is Dubai.
