The Atlantis daycation launches on Friday May 22, just in time for the Eid break…

With the news that hotel beaches could open to in-house guests in Dubai, staycation searches went through the roof. Now, some of Dubai’s leading resorts are extending that toes-in-the-sand experience to a wider audience, all while maintaining the strictest safety standards.

Atlantis, The Palm is launching a new daycation deal at White Beach on Friday May 22, just in time for the five-day Eid break.

The White Beach daycation at Atlantis costs Dhs295 per person, and includes a sun lounger on the resort’s private beach, with views over Palm Jumeirah and the Dubai skyline. Precautionary measures are in place to ensure a safe day for all, and entry is only open to ages 21 and above.

When you book a daycation at Atlantis, The Palm, you’ll get all-day access to a hotel room within the resort. The deluxe rooms are perfect for a post-swim shower, escaping the mid-afternoon heat, or freshening up before you head home.
