Atlantis, The Palm Proves Too Extreme For DJ David Guetta

May 7, 2013 at 9:16 AM | by | ()

It's never been a secret that Atlantis, The Palm likes to do things on a big scale. Its grand opening party alone coast $35 million.

So we wonder why celebrity DJ David Guetta received such a shock when he checked into his suite at the hotel recently. He griped to 7 Days In Dubai:

"My room is so crazy I’ve never seen anything like it. They gave me a room where the bedroom is under the aquarium. I’m sleeping with sharks and stingrays and I had to close the curtains because I couldn’t sleep, it was freaking me out."

Fancy Seeing You Here, Mr. Scuba Diver

  Site Where: Berlin, Germany

We've written about the outstanding AquaDom at the Radisson Blu Berlin before but this snapshot of a scuba diver inside the cylindrical aquarium (the largest in the world) kinda cracks us up.

He looks like one of those fake diver dolls you drop in your home aquarium! Except this diver is doing some hard work--scrubbing clean the aquarium which houses tropical fish. Meanwhile, guests who want to go inside the aquarium will have to settle for riding up the elevator through the middle of the cylinder.

The aquarium is run by SeaLife Berlin next door which operates the elevator ride as well but hotel guests can get a special discount on admission--adult tickets are 11,50€ compared with 16,95€. Room rates at the Radisson, which come with free WiFi, start at 225€ a night.
