Worth a total of $1.4bn, the Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences in Dubai looks like one of the most promising upcoming openings in the Emirate.

Before the year runs out, Dubai wants to welcome another monumental hotel project to its already impressive portfolio.

We take a closer look at the Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences and why this property is one of the 2020s most anticipated openings.

Taking luxury a step further

Two impressive towers of 37 and 43 floors will make up The Royal Atlantis Resort which will offer guests 795 rooms and suites alongside 231 serviced residences and apartments of which some have private plunge pools and terraced gardens.

From the first moment, guests will be wowed as they step into the lobby overlooking elaborate fountains and fire installations in the open space beyond. The highlight is undoubtedly the Sky Bridge, which connects the project’s two towers and comes with a pool and an elegant lounge overlooking the Palm from 95 metres above the ground.

Both resort guests and residents will have access to expansive private gardens and 92 swimming pools. A luxurious Givenchy SPA offers the best of wellness and relaxation and a sports centre provides guests with a chance to work up an appetite for a meal at one of the 35 bars and restaurants. 10 of these venues are headed up by international celebrity chefs such as Heston Blumenthal or Costas Spiliadis and guarantee unforgettable culinary experiences.

Dubai’s new entertainment hub

Set on the crescent of the Palm Dubai, the new Royal Atlantis will be only a short distance from the original Atlantis hotel. Between them, the two properties feature over two kilometres of pristine, privately owned beachfront, only accessible to guests.

Together, the two hotels are designed to form the ultimate entertainment destination. Of course, everyone staying at the resort will also get free access to the famous Atlantis waterpark and the on-site nightclub.

A monumental project

While the result is stunning, building the Royal Atlantis was a challenge. Over 45,000 tonnes of steel rebar, 5,500 tonnes of structural steel and 130,000 sqm of glass-reinforced concrete were needed to make the vision of the two towers and the connecting Sky Bridge a reality.

The team at the Royal Atlantis confident their product will stand out even in Dubai’s crowded market. Especially with the Expo 2020 coming up, a large influx of visitors is expected to grant the hotel a solid start.
“Dubai’s predominant source markets such as India, Saudi Arabia, Europe, China, and Russia all have healthy increases in the number of millionaires…and luxury-seeking travellers,” says Rupprecht Queitsch, CEO of the International Hospitality Consulting Group.
“As luxury takes on new shapes, such new hospitality offerings can be (oriented) to these quickly growing markets.”



From 1994 to 1998, Sol Kerzner created the mythical city of Atlantis from the ground up -- or, more accurately, from the seabed to the skies.
