Holidays to Dubai can still offer families good value for money, despite the country’s penchant for luxury, it has been claimed.

Alan Leibman, president of the new Atlantis resort, made these comments in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, in which he also remarked upon the popularity of the enormous hotel.

Calling Atlantis “an entertainment destination that is truly different to anything that exists in the resort category in the region”, he added that “Dubai is still good value when you’re paying in pounds, [or] you’re paying in euros.”

Dubai is also home to the sail-shaped Burj al-Arab hotel and the Dubai Tower, the world’s largest skyscraper.

The newspaper cites figures from Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, which recently showed that the Middle East had the highest hotel occupancy rates in the world during the first half of 2008.

Tourist officials in Dubai aim to increase tourist numbers to 15 million by 2015, creating an extra 93,900 hotel rooms and apartments.
