The first-look images of Atlantis The Royal, Dubai’s much-anticipated ultra-luxury resort on the crescent of Palm Jumeirah, were released this week.
These first glimpses come as the 795-room resort begins accepting reservations for guests arriving from 4 March 2023 (according to the hotel’s website booking platform).
From butlers providing mini-pillow menus to suites with private infinity pools and a world-class club that sits among the clouds, Atlantis The Royal is set to reshape ultra-luxury stays.
Bookings for the ultra-luxury resort open today (31st October), with stays available from 2023.
The images capture the scale, grandeur and ambition of this ultra-luxurious Dubai resort, which includes 44 suites with their own private infinity pools, a stylish infinity pool on the 22nd floor with spectacular views out over the Palm Island, the largest jellyfish aquarium in the world, a water fountain show that breathes fire, and an unrivalled collection of celebrity chef restaurants and bars.
The resort surges 43 storeys high with unparalleled views over the Arabian Sea and Palm Island. 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 a 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. 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 personalise their room with technology that loads the most popular streaming media and other accounts to in-room TVs.
