Sailun Tires

17 restaurants, a 90-meter infinity pool on the roof and a giant aquarium with jellyfish are just some of the attractions worthy of admiration… This and more is located in one place — at the Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences in Dubai, UAE.

Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences

When Atlantis The Palm, the first resort on the artificial Palm Jumeirah Island, opened in September 2008, it changed Dubai forever. Fast forward more than a decade — and now the Royal Atlantis Resort is preparing to welcome guests.

The duo of resorts occupies 63 hectares. This is about 155 football fields. Here are 8 things to know about a hotel breaking stereotypes.

No.1. Palm Jumeirah Resort has 17 restaurants and bars 

A rich selection of restaurants will allow Atlantis guests to embark on a culinary journey around the world without leaving the resort. 5 restaurants will be headed by famous chefs. Heston Blumenthal, Jose Andres, Ariana Bundy, Gaston Acurio and Costa Spiliadis will bring inventive dishes of British, Spanish, Persian, Peruvian and Mediterranean cuisine, respectively, to the Palm Jumeirah coast. On the 22nd and 23rd floors, there will be an exquisite Cantonese night restaurant Ling Ling from the team of the award-winning Hakkasan Restaurant with many outdoor terraces overlooking the pool. An all-day restaurant, an American diner, a Robatayaki restaurant and several cocktail bars, including one on the 22nd floor of Sky Pool, will complete the Michelin-worthy list.

No.2. The lobby bar has one of the world’s largest jellyfish aquariums

At Atlantis The Palm, guests can admire over 65,000 marine animals in the Lost Chambers Aquarium, and the Royal Atlantis will also be decorated in a water theme. The central element of the lobby bar will be an aquarium with 2,000 jellyfish, and 3 more aquariums throughout the lobby will contain 600,000 liters of water.

No.3. The fire and water theme passes through the hotel’s interior design

Five dramatic installations, dedicated to water and fire, were designed by the Californian design firm W.E.T. They are included in the interior of The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences. Residents and guests will feel at home thanks to a masterpiece composition: streams of water cascade into the shallow water of the pool, in which the flame is designed to erupt like fountains.

Another unique feature of the installation is the graceful waterfalls that pour onto the external surfaces of the elevators and create the effect of a serene water wall. The central place at ground level is occupied by a composition called GLIMMER, which brightly illuminates the space, and the HORIZON project is a water structure that raises the living room at ground level to new heights.

No.4. The gorgeous infinity pool stretches 90 meters long and rises 96 meters above the Palm Jumeirah 

The Sky Pool, an endless pool overlooking the sky, is 90 meters long and rises 96 meters above the Palm Jumeirah on the 22nd floor. The Sky Pool overlooks the legendary Dubai cityscape on one side and the sparkling Persian Gulf on the other. It will include a nearby cocktail bar, which will become a popular place for evening getaway.

No.5. Guest rooms occupy 43 floors in the west wing, and living quarters have 37 floors in the east wing 

A hotel will be located in the west wing. There will be 795 rooms, including 693 rooms with views of the ocean and palm trees, 96 suites and 6 branded suites. The residences will be located on the opposite side, in the east wing, and bring a new level of luxury living to Dubai. The collection will include 231 residential buildings with 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedrooms, including Skycourts, Penthouses and Garden Suites.

Each residence and hotel room overlooks the Palm Jumeirah or the Persian Gulf, and many of them have their own outdoor space. Superior rooms have a garden with a terrace and a private infinity pool.

No.6. The two resorts have over 90 pools

The two resorts will have over 90 public and private pools, as well as 2 kilometers of private beach — the largest continuous accessible private beach in Dubai, 45 restaurants and bars, a beach club and a nightclub. Guests can also visit The Lost Chambers Aquarium and Aquaventure Water Park.

No.7. The complex has 4-bedroom Skycourt residences with private pools 

A key design element of The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences is the Skycourt residences. Each Skycourt option includes up to 4 bedrooms with raised terraces, a private outdoor pool and landscaped gardens. The residences will offer views both inside and under water, as well as outside the glazed pool. They also provide a 360-degree panorama from the balcony.

No.8. Guests of the Royal Atlantis Hotel can visit the new Aquaventure Water Park 

Aquaventure is one of the world’s largest water parks when it opened the Trident Tower. The new 48-meter tower of the popular water park “Trident Tower” complements Atlantis Aquaventure with a collection of 12 new slides, increasing the number of attractions to 105. This means endless hours of family fun!
