All set for the 4,713th – we counted them – Chinese New Year? They certainly seem to be at Atlantis The Palm, which will unleash a live Lion Dance performance and firework display.

Atlantis is also offering discounts on a variety of spa treatments like facials and de-stress massages at ShuiQi Spa and up to 40 percent off at luxury retailers like Tiffany & Co, Rodeo Drive and Levant throughout February.
