One of The World’s Most Ultra-Luxury Resort, Atlantis The Royal Dubai Was Unveiled To The World With An Exclusive Performance By Beyoncé.
This ultra-luxurious Dubai Resort innovates with mini-pillow menus and Suites with Private Infinity Pools, among other show-stopping ultra-luxury touches.
Eight years in the making, Atlantis The Royal Dubai has been specifically designed to challenge the boundaries of imagination and reshape what ultra-luxury travel means. The Grand Reveal Weekend was set to cement Atlantis The Royal as an instant icon in Dubai and around the world.
The 795-room resort surges 43 storeys high with unparalleled views over the Arabian Sea and Palm Island. 44 of the resort’s luxury Suites and Signature Penthouses offer private infinity pools, inviting guests to swim amongst the clouds.
All Rooms, Suites and Signature Penthouses deliver show-stopping ultra-luxury touches, including a bespoke selection of amenities from luxury brands, including Hermès, Frette and Graff.
All guests staying in Suites or Signature Penthouses can enjoy an elite butler service, offering a supreme standard of service and luxury, where every need is anticipated. Services include unpacking luggage, pillow selection, clothes pressing, a private resort orientation and setting up exclusive experiences.
Guests staying in a Suite or Signature Penthouse will be offered a mini pillow sample menu by their butler, enabling them to curate their own sleep experience. The unique amenity features miniature versions of every pillow, enabling guests to review the shape, touch and feel of the pillows before making their choice. The pillow menu consists of seven different types of pillows, including cool down, memory foam for head, memory foam for feet, buckwheat, pregnancy and a body pillow option.
All Rooms are Connected, allowing guests to control their room’s thermostat, lighting, television and other amenities via their mobile phones. Guests will also be able to personalize their room with technology that loads the most popular streaming media and other accounts to in-room TVs.
The dining options at Atlantis The Royal combine pioneering chefs with show-stopping experiences across 17 restaurants and bars.
Signature restaurants from culinary icons include Gaston Acurio, Ariana Bundy, Costas Spiliadis and Jose Andres, while Nobu opened 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.
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 whist overlooking the glittering Dubai skyline.
Atlantis The Royal is also home to Heston Blumenthal’s inaugural cocktail bar, which features a 6.5m high jellyfish aquarium, housing 4,000 moon jellies. Titled Resonance by Heston Blumenthal, this entirely new and unique concept offers memorable culinary experiences through considered, meticulously crafted and complex cocktails, food, and purposeful theatre.
The resort is 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.
Before opening to guests, Atlantis The Royal held a spectacular Grand Reveal in January with a star-studded line up in attendance and an event that matched the ambition of the new resort. Inaugurated by an unforgettable performance by the world’s most celebrated performer, the global icon Beyoncé, over one thousand celebrities and special guests gathered beneath the resort’s iconic façade to witness the event.
Beyoncé’s 60- minute performance – her first live show since 2018 – opened with a stunning rendition of the Etta James’ classic, “At Last,” before she treated the audience to some of her biggest career-spanning hits, including “Halo” and “Crazy in love.”
This launch event echoed 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.
“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.” – Tim Kelly, Managing Director of Atlantis Dubai.
