Palm Jumeirah never ceases to amaze us. The artificial archipelago is one of the most ambitious real-estate developments in Dubai, consisting of shopping and dining areas as well as hotels and resorts including the most popular 5 star aqua-themed hotel The Atlantis. Located on the crescent of The Palm and next to the iconic Atlantis resort is the upcoming construction of The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences by the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD).
To be developed in association with Kerzner International, the resort will stand 46 stories tall and feature private gardens and infinity pools overlooking the ocean and The Palm, to the Sky Pool. The new Sky Pool will soar almost 90 meters above The Palm. Consisting of 800 rooms, suites and 250 luxury hotel apartments, the Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences will cost approximately $1.4 billion and is likely to be completed by 2018.
“The success of Atlantis, The Palm has continued to exceed our financial performance expectations year on year and the time is right to usher in the next phase of this iconic development,” commented Alan Leibman, Chief Executive Officer, Kerzner International.
The resort will also be home to world-class restaurants with award-winning celebrity chefs, as well as incredible new entertainment experiences. Luxury retail boutiques will offer a wide and interesting selection for shopping pleasure. The destination will also house an indulgent Spa, introducing traditional and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies, as well as a cutting-edge fitness centre. Guests and residents will also be able to discover never before-seen marine experiences.
“This next phase of Atlantis, including the luxury residences of The Royal Atlantis, will continue to drive the growth of Dubai forward,” said H.E. Mohammed Ibrahim Al Shaibani, Executive Director and CEO of Investment Corporation of Dubai (“ICD”) and Chairman of Kerzner International.
