Inside Dubai’s Atlantis, The Royal: Opulence and Extravagance in the Middle East’s “Best” Luxury Resort

Atlantis The Royal

Atlantis, The Royal, a luxurious resort in Dubai, has made waves since its opening last year with its opulent amenities and ultra-luxury experiences. The resort, which debuted with a star-studded three-day party featuring performances by Beyoncé and Swedish House Mafia, has since established itself as one of the Middle East’s premier destinations. Its recent inclusion on the World’s 50 Best Hotels list only solidifies its reputation.

Here are some details according to the report of CNN International.

A Surplus of Swimming Pools

The resort boasts an astounding 90 swimming pools, including a 300-foot-long sky pool, private cabanas with plunge pools, and a VIP duplex pool cabana. Cloud 22, the resort’s infinity pool on the 22nd floor, offers stunning views of Dubai’s man-made Palm islands and serves caviar bruschetta and other high-end fare at its swim-up bar.

However, the most exclusive experience is the VVIP duplex pool cabana, a private paradise used by Kendall Jenner for her tequila brand’s launch party. It features a suspended plunge pool and two lounge areas for entertaining guests, making it a favorite spot for A-list celebrities.

Lavish Interiors and Fine Dining

Atlantis, The Royal, doesn’t hold back on lavish interiors and high-end amenities. The 795 rooms are outfitted with designer items, including diamond jeweler Graff toiletries, bathrobes by Italian luxury textile brand Frette, and gold toothbrushes and combs. The Royal Club offers all-day champagne service, while the resort’s 17 dining options include some of the world’s top celebrity chef restaurants.

Nobu Beach Club, part of the resort, is a magnet for the city’s socialites, adding to the resort’s allure as a hotspot for those who enjoy the finer things in life.

The resort’s 32,300 square-foot spa offers a range of decadent treatments, from 24-karat gold facials to gold-infused aromatherapy massages with gold-dipped volcanic stones. Traditional Arabic wellness therapies, such as desert sand and date sugar exfoliations, add a touch of local flair to the spa’s extensive offerings.

The Royal Mansion: Fit for a Superstar

One of the resort’s crown jewels is the Royal Mansion, an 11,840-square-foot suite where Beyoncé and Jay Z stayed during the opening. This four-bedroom, split-level suite has its own private infinity pool, triple-height library, and a home-cinema room. Accessed via a private elevator, the Royal Mansion provides a 360-degree view across the Palm and the Gulf.

Luxury touches like backgammon games by Baccarat, a Louis Vuitton ping pong table, and personal shopping experiences from high-end brands like Graff and Valentino make this suite one of Dubai’s most exclusive. Chefs from any of the resort’s restaurants can cook for guests, while 24-hour butlers and bartenders are on hand to cater to every need.

Enjoying the Experience

Despite its high-end appeal, there are accessible experiences for those not staying at the hotel. The Sky Blaze fountain, located in the resort’s grounds, performs a “dramatic” show every hour from 12 pm daily, attracting both hotel guests and visitors. Overlooking the fountain is Elements Lounge, a terrace bar ideal for sunset cocktails.

For those seeking fine dining at a more affordable price, Estiatorio Milos offers a business lunch menu for just 200 dirhams ($55), allowing visitors to sample the luxurious surroundings without breaking the bank. With room rates starting at $1,300 during high season, Atlantis, The Royal, provides a glimpse into the ultra-luxurious side of Dubai.
