atlantis the royal: a new icon for dubai


Crowning Dubai‘s Jumeirah Palm Island, Atlantis The Royal has reached completion to become a new icon for the city. Designed by New York-based architecture practice Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), the ambitious project is sited just down the shoreline from its sister project, the famous Atlantis, The Palm resort. It will introduce a luxury resort hotel, seventeen celebrity-led restaurants and bars, a 22nd floor infinity pool, and even the world’s largest jellyfish aquarium. 


While the architecture has reached completion, the hotel is slated to open its doors to guests in 2023. Bookings have already opened for those eager to reserve a night in one of the hotel’s 795 rooms, with stays beginning at $850 a night (€870 EUR).

The architects at Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) design Atlantis The Royal as a sweeping stack of massive blocks, resembling a monumental wall of bricks. Together, these stacks form six interconnected towers with an impressive sky-bridge at the twenty-second floor, where an infinity pool stretches 295 feet (90 meters) alongside an ‘entertainment experience’ dubbed Cloud 22. This rooftop nightlife venue hosts a swim-up bar, a vaulted DJ booth, and a collection of VIP cabanas.


The resort hotel‘s most prized rooms are the forty-four luxury suites and penthouses, each with its own private infinity pool.
