An adult ticket costs 105 dirhams at The Lost Chambers Aquarium. Children receive a discount and there the ticket costs 80 dirhams. You can buy this online, for example, in our Dubai Excursions area. Then you just have to show it at the checkout. You can also buy one online on the hotel’s website. Another alternative is to buy it on-site at the box office. However, it can then be that you have to reckon with a queue. Especially on weekends, the hotel has a lot of visitors who want to see it.
If you are a guest of the Atlantis The Palm Dubai hotel, you can visit The Lost Chambers Aquarium for free. That means you don’t need a ticket and you don’t have to buy one or stand in line.
There you have the advantage that you can visit it for free. So it makes sense to stay the night there so that you have this advantage over other visitors. However, the overnight prices in this hotel are not cheap. It is one of the most popular beach hotels in Dubai and therefore you have to pay more for an overnight stay there.

The Lost Chambers Aquarium is open daily from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. As already mentioned, there are more and more visitors on the weekend. Then the rush is usually very large and you can not look at the aquarium in peace. Those who prefer to have some peace and quiet should go there during the week. Then you can also take photos of the fish better and get there better.
The address is Atlantis The Palm Hotel on The Palm Jumeirah Island. You can see the hotel from afar when you drive to the island. Who has never been there should use the taxi. The drivers know the way and you can get there very quickly. These also drive directly to the entrance and you only have to get out. The Hop On Hop Off buses also stop there and you can get off if you want and have a look at the aquarium.
There are many tourists who rent a car during their trip to Dubai. However, you cannot park there directly. There is a large car park near the hotel across from the Aquaventure water park where you can park for free. Then a bus takes you directly to the entrance. By the way, this is not the main entrance to the hotel. It is a separate entrance where you can only visit The Lost Chambers Aquarium and the water park. But you can also get to the hotel from this area. However, you need a room card there which must be shown.
The Lost Chambers Aquarium features 65,000 fish and 250 different species. These are bigger and smaller fish.
There are 18 million liters of water in the entire aquarium and of course, this has to be cleaned constantly so that the marine life is good. The effort is very big what you can imagine. A pane of glass is 10 meters high and 70 centimeters thick. So it is very thick so that it can withstand the water pressure.
