Designed to be the centerpiece of the 2020 World Expo in Dubai, The Royal Atlantis will offer premium hospitality and residential experience unlike any other in the world. Scheduled to open in late-2019, this unique beachfront community is located on the crescent of the Palm, adjacent to Atlantis, and will offer a vibrant dining and leisure experience.
“The time is right for the next phase of the iconic Atlantis brand. Taking resort living to new luxury heights, The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences responds to a calling from a highly discerning, affluent, international demographic seeking a new class of offering, currently not available elsewhere in Dubai.” – Issam Galadari, Director of the Royal Atlantis Residences
The Royal Atlantis is a unique 43-storeyed building offering dramatic views of the Gulf and Dubai skyline. Its form is as much defined by its voids as by the structure itself. The building turns these open spaces into a series of lushly-landscaped terraces and “sky courts” with private pools and shaded gardens. These openings maximise exposure to the direct prevailing sea breeze to passively cool them for much of the day and most of the year. They also ensure that a substantial number of the hotel’s rooms and residences have direct access to private pools and shaded gardens. Rooms without direct access have deep private balconies. The building’s two terraced towers step down towards one another and are linked by the sky bridge which is punctuated with pools, lounges, and other amenities that create a lush oasis stepping down to the tranquil Palm Island lagoon below.
The structure will offer 231 residential homes comprising two, three, four and five-bedroom units including Skycourts, Penthouses and Garden Suites, ranging between 1,434 and 17,088 square feet with prices starting at AED 6,995,000 (approximately $1.9m or £1.4m). The project houses more than 90 swimming pools in total.
Residents can choose from 82 individual layouts, each providing ceiling heights of up to 3 meters and offering water views. Custom closets and bespoke fittings feature throughout the property, ensuring each apartment can be tailored to its owner’s requirements. Handmade artwork can also be custom-made exclusively for residences. Kitchens feature a combination of white quartz and marble countertops, Gaggenau and Miele appliances with handcrafted storage units. Many of the residences have their own terraced gardens with private infinity pools. The four exquisite penthouses provide their own unique specification palette.
The hotel component is in the west wing of the property and will offer 795 guest rooms and suites. The two wings are united by the shared amenity of the sky bridge. The other amenities, also shared by residents and guests, include 24-hour concierge, exclusive beach club, a premium fitness centre, food and beverage outlets with award-winning celebrity chefs as well as the roof-top restaurant, upscale retail boutiques, private parking, conference space, and the expansive, light-filled, central lobby which serves as the heart of the complex.
The Sky Pool and Lounge will redefine entertainment in Dubai with infinity pools and private cabanas, which transform at night into a spectacular playground in which to dine and socialise. An in-resort Givenchy Spa with indoor and outdoor pools will offer exquisite traditional and holistic practices, fused with modern spa therapies. Residents will also have the luxury of ordering room service from the 23 dining establishments at Atlantis, including those of the Michelin Star grade.
“The high-net-worth global citizen is ready for the new dawn of residential experience. The development will become the new landmark of Dubai and will support the ‘Dubai Plan 2021’ in positioning the city as one of the best places to live in the world,” added Issam Galadari.
