Dubai’s highly anticipated Atlantis The Royal opens bookings

The ultra-luxury resort will open in 2023

Ahead of its imminent opening in January 2023, Atlantis The Royal has announced the opening of its bookings system and released a selection of first-look images.

Located on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, the 795-room resort stands 43 storeys high, offering views over the Arabian Sea. Accommodation categories include rooms, suites and signature penthouses stocked with luxury amenities from brands including Hermès, Frette and Graff.

The property’s 44 luxury suites and signature penthouses offer private infinity pools, inviting guests to swim in the sky and butler service, which includes unpacking, pillow selection, clothes pressing, a private resort orientation and exclusive concierge services.

All rooms feature smart technology allowing guests  to control the thermostat, lighting and television via their mobile phones. They will also be able to link their devices to in-room TVs.

Atlantis The Royal will launch 17 restaurants and bars. Nobu will open its first pool and beach club and Heston Blumenthal will debut in the region with Dinner, his two-Michelin-star London concept, and his first-ever bar, Resonance. This out-of-the-ordinary concept will offer memorable culinary experiences and complex cocktails in a theatrical atmosphere.

There will also be signature restaurants by renowned chefs Gaston Acurio, Ariana Bundy, Costas Spiliadis and Jose Andres. 

Private infinity pool

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 DJ booth, revellers can dance into the night whilst overlooking the glittering Dubai skyline.

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. With 180-degree views of the glittering Dubai skyline, guests can expect a multi-sensory dining and late-night party experience.


The resort will also be home to an 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.

Looking forward to the opening, Atlantis Dubai managing director Tim Kelly said: “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.  

"This is a resort like no other and the building itself will become an instantly recognisable icon of the Dubai skyline. We're excited to begin welcoming guests next year and treat them to an experience they’ll never forget.”

Atlantis The Royal will hold a grand opening in January with a star-studded lineup in attendance at an event that promises to match the ambition of the new resort.
