I was in Dubai to celebrate my 25th birthday and I dreamed of staying at Atlantis. When I looked up the price for a week, the average was about $3,500. So I decided to use points and stay at a Sheraton Hotel instead. I’d rather have that amount of money available for spending money or meals. However, I didn’t want to miss out on the Atlantis experience, so I did my research and found out you could buy day passes to the resort. I also went ahead and booked a spa appointment so I could receive, in my opinion, the full experience. When I walked on the property it was simply gorgeous from the landscape to interior decor. The staff were very present and assisted me in having a memorable birthday. Just being in the atmosphere put a smile on my face. The water slides, beach, spa, and food were just the icing on my birthday cake!
