Changing the landscape of Dubai forever, welcome to Atlantis The Royal. The unique architectural masterpiece is twice the height of its sister hotel Atlantis, The Palm and has been created by the leading designers, architects and artists of the world to offer infinite ocean and skyline views. Atlantis The Royal offers guests unparalleled dining experiences, attractions and entertainment. As the saying goes, if you can do it, Dubai can do it even better and this shines through with the unique design of the building which stands out on the Palm Island, carefully designed to enhance both outdoor and indoor living space.  

As soon as you enter the reception area you are immersed into an ultra-luxury world with attention to detail throughout. The theme of the hotel is water and fire, and this is evident as soon as you step foot on the hotel grounds. You’ll be greeted by an 11.5 metre structure which has been inspired by the first drop of rain in the desert – the Droplets. There is also the iconic Skyblaze Fountain, the first fire meets water show in the region as it lights up every evening after sunset.  

On the culinary scene, there are 17 restaurants and bars including eight world class celebrity chefs such as Heston Blumenthal, José Andrés and Gastón Acurio to name just a few. With cuisines to suit every taste, you can enjoy a world tour of culinary delights throughout your stay.  

Rooms are elegantly decorated with Italian marble, and gold and white colour schemes to create a contemporary and modern, yet homely feel. Rooms are split across the three resort towers – sunset, sunlight, and sunrise and each has its own private balcony. Attention to detail is also evident throughout the fine finishes in the room with embroidered linen and a pillow menu for you to choose from to ensure a good night’s sleep.  

There are exclusive benefits across the resort for guests staying in the Royal Club Rooms. These include all day access to two private lounges for complimentary daily refreshments, afternoon tea and evening drinks. Additionally, guests can also enjoy butler services and daily access to Atlantis Explorers Club.  

Take your choice of pools or head to the beach nearby to relax. Guests at Atlantis The Royal also benefit from complimentary access to Aquaventure Waterpark, the largest in the world.
