You remember my post about the world’s largest swimming pool, don’t you? It was floating around on the Internet getting sent to all and sundry via email. Well, here’s another one I received via email. Faithfully reproduced here as another X-factor post. You’ve just got to check out (or should that be check in at) the Atlantis Hotel The Palm, Dubai.
The Atlantis Hotel The Palm in Dubai, one of the world’s most anticipated hotels, finally opened its doors on September 24. Situated on 113 acres of the Palm Jumeirah, the hotel boasts over 1539 rooms.
