Atlantis, The Palm offers global guests staying five or more nights the opportunity to claim back the cost of their respective countries’ departure PCR test now through April 30, 2021. Many travelers are required to present a negative PCR test before arriving in the UAE, and the luxury resort will give back the full cost of the tests for two guests per room to spend as in-resort credit. For a PCR test that costs up to $190, two guests will receive the full amount back to spend at the resort, including food and beverage, spa or waterpark experiences.
Guests must present their original proof of purchase upon check-in and the cost is capped at AED 1,400 per room. The resort credit does not apply to minibar, laundry, tobacco or retail shop purchases. As children 12 years and younger are exempt from the PCR test requirement, they do not qualify for this offer. In-house PCR test services are available at a preferred price for those travelers required to present a PCR test before leaving from Dubai for their destination.
“We are continuously evolving to meet the needs of our customers during this challenging time. We would like to continue to make the travels of our international guests easier by giving back the cost of their home country’s departure PCR test to spend on a range of amazing in-resort activities and experiences,” said Timothy Kelly, executive vice president and managing director, Atlantis Dubai. “We hope this will continue to reduce any travel inconveniences and encourage more guests from across the globe to visit Dubai’s premier entertainment destination.”
Atlantis, The Palm is fully operational, including Atlantis Aquaventure and The Lost Chambers Aquarium, as well the resort’s 31 world-renowned restaurants.

As our four-passenger plane prepared to land on a gravely shoreline in Lake Clark National Park, one of the most remote national parks in the United States, accessible only by plane or boat, my excitement grew. Though the flight was scenic and provided a terrific perspective of the vast expanse of this part of Southcentral Alaska, my fellow passengers and I had one thing on our mind — bears!
I was staying in New York City with my daughter. We arrived at Penn Station, right across the street from Hotel Pennsylvania, at 9:30 a.m. — way too early to check in. But we had some luggage we didn’t want to carry around with us, so we stopped at the hotel to leave it.
