Dubai has once again shown the world what seven-star luxury is all about, as it gave a first glimpse into the sparkling Atlantis The Royal on Saturday.
The hotel — billed the ‘world’s most ultra-luxury resort’ — is opening to all on February 10.
It’s “a new architectural masterpiece” for the emirate’s tourism sector, said His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who visited the hotel on Saturday.
The world will get its first glimpse of the stunning resort in a 'grand reveal' happening tonight (January 21). The exclusive, invite-only party will see Beyoncé’s first concert in five years.
Its unique location also gives guests two different types of waterfront views — the Arabian Gulf on one side and the sheltered lagoon of the Palm Jumeirah Island and the Dubai skyline on the other.
Sheikh Mohammed toured the resort and was briefed on its interior design inspired by the Bedouin culture. The hotel celebrates how precious water is with stunning falls and sculptures.
Standing 43 storeys high and spanning 406,000sqm, the new jewel on the Palm Island shines at a time when the emirate is working towards an ambitious economic target for the next 10 years. The Dubai government said this iconic landmark supports its D33 goal to strengthen the city’s position as one of the world’s top three cities for tourism and business.
Designed by leading international designers, architects and artists, the hotel is a 500-metre-long, 178-metre-tall mega structure shaped like Tetris blocks.
Inside, guests will be dazzled by fountains that breathe fire and infinity pools that will let them swim among the clouds.
Atlantis The Royal features a collection of 795 rooms, suites, and penthouses, and an array of celebrity chef restaurants.
It consists of six towers connected by a sky bridge, which — together with dramatically illuminated openings between each of its blocks — creates a stunning pattern on the skyline at night. The resort also features a unique sky garden concept.
