Eleanor is here to help give you the inside track.

With squilions of rooms, 1,539 to be more precise, this hotel is large and totally bling. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but it is great for families. Each guest room and suite are decorated in sea-side blues with occasional Arabian touches, with views over the ocean on one side and private beach, the Palm and Dubai skyline on the other. The spacious accomodation choices are especially suitable for families, comfortably accommodating two adults and two children in one room. Walk-in wardrobes, swanky bathrooms and 24-hour in-room dining are also available upon request. The Imperial Club rooms include all day in-room dining and cocktails from the comfort of your separate living area or balcony. Guests of the Club suites can also take advantage of the Imperial Club lounge. The Underwater Suite provide you with stunning views into the Ambassador Lagoon, whilst the Atlantis Suite comes with a spectacular sun terrace. The majestic arch spanning Royal Bridge Suite is the most decadent with a plush décor, 180 degree views and absolute privacy.

If not already dining in your own private suite, the hotel has a small selection of seventeen restaurants and bars to choose from. World-renowned Nobu serves outstanding Japanese cuisine, equipped with a sushi bar and sake lounge for an unforgettable dining experience. The Nasimi Beach restaurant overlooks the pristine white sands, offering Mediterranean cuisine from seafood and salads to grilled dishes. Sip your coffee between bites of freshly baked goods at the Poseidon Café, boasting fabulous views of the impressive Ambassador Lagoon. There are so many more options to dine in throughout the day - and every single one is a hit!

There's a mile of sandy beaches, perfect for beach activities, sunbathing and swimming whilst two enormous pools invite for a relaxed day or family fun. An extensive spa allows you to dive into another world, providing a range of luxury treatments, bathing options and water therapies for a memorable relaxing experience.

Essentially this hotel is many a kid's paradise with activities galore with its own water park and Aquarium to name a few. Aquaventure Water Park offers fun rides and over 65,000 marine animals as well as Dolphin Bay where you can get the chance to interact with these charismatic animals. Additionally, the Lost Chambers Aquarium has an amazing underwater world, where you can watch fish feedings or visit a show at the interactive and educational Aquaventure. Should more entertainment be on the agenda - the Dolphin Bay does exactly what it says on the tin and guests can swim with the beautiful creatures.
