Atlantis The Royal, part of the Atlantis hotel group, has begun accepting bookings as the latest property amongst Dubai’s upscale hotels prepares to start welcoming guests within three months. According to a press release, Atlantis The Royal on the Palm Jumeirah has promised an experience to redefine luxury.
Surrounded by the tranquil Arabian Gulf, the resort includes 44 suites with infinity pools overlooking the Palm Island, the largest jellyfish aquarium in the world, a water fountain show that breathes fire and an unrivaled collection of celebrity chef restaurants and bars, says the hotel.
To facilitate bookings, the hotel has also released its first look for visitors, guests and travel trade. The press statement claims that as these new images show, Atlantis The Royal is “pinnacle of luxury, offering guests an experience like no other, uniquely tailored to their every desire”. Guests here are taken on a journey of discovery and adventure, with artful masterpieces, iconic entertainment, and beautiful craftsmanship at every turn, where the highest level of service will set a new standard in excellence, says the hotel that will have a gala opening ceremony in January 2023. The hotel says that the party would echo the ‘spectacular’ launch of Atlantis The Palm in 2008, where guests included Robert DeNiro, Gerard Butler, Kylie Minogue and Priyanka Chopra, with a firework display that could be seen from space.
Rooms, suites and signature penthouses
The 795-room resort towers 43 storeys high with unparalleled views over the Arabian Sea and Palm Island. According to the press release, 44 of the resort’s luxury Suites and Signature Penthouses offer private infinity pools, inviting guests to swim amongst the clouds. These rooms, suites and penthouses deliver luxurious touches that include a variety of amenities from luxury brands like Hermès, Frette and Graff, says the press statement.
Guests staying in these suits can also enjoy an elite butler service, offering a supreme standard of service and luxury. Other services include unpacking luggage, pillow selection, clothes pressing, a private resort orientation and setting up exclusive experiences. They are also offered a mini pillow sample menu by their butler, enabling them to curate their own sleep experience.
According to the press release, the dining options at Atlantis The Royal combine pioneering chefs with experiences across 17 restaurants and bars. Signature restaurants from culinary icons include Gaston Acurio, Ariana Bundy, Costas Spiliadis and Jose Andres, while Nobu will be opening their first ever pool and beach club and Heston Blumenthal will introduce Dinner, as well as his debut bar, Resonance.
Sitting adjacent to Cloud 22 on the 22nd floor is Ling Ling, a day-to-night destination lounge and dining experience featuring Asian-inspired cuisine from Tao Group Hospitality. Featuring 180-degree views of the glittering Dubai skyline, guests can expect a culturally rich, multi-sensory, dining and late-night party experience.
Entertainment & Nightlife
The six towers that make up Atlantis The Royal are brought together by a 90-metre long Skypool on the 22nd floor, which forms part of an outdoor entertainment experience called Cloud 22. Featuring VIP cabanas with private plunge pools, a swim up-bar and a glittering head-shaped DJ booth, this venue is the jewel in Atlantis The Royal’s crown. Set to become the iconic entertainment and nightlife destination in Dubai, revellers can dance away the day, into night to the world’s best DJ’s whilst overlooking the glittering Dubai skyline.
The resort is also home to a vast array of fountains and water installations designed by the world’s authority on water features, WET Design. This includes the magnificent Skyblaze; a fountain that breathes fire and the first and only permanent fire and water performance fountain in the Middle East.
“This is it. Our moment is finally here to reveal Atlantis The Royal as the world’s most ultra-luxury entertainment resort. Openings of resorts like this one only come around once or twice in a decade, and we can’t wait to share it with the world. As these new images demonstrate, this is a resort like no other and the building itself will become an instantly recognisable icon of the Dubai skyline. We are excited to begin welcoming guests next year and treat them to an experience they’ll never forget,” says Tim Kelly, Managing Director.
