Atlantis The Royal, Dubai’s newest icon officially opened its doors to guests on 10th February 2023, and we can’t get enough.  

A place where ‘your dreams become your destination,’ this ultra-luxury resort certainly doesn’t hold back on its promises. Penthouses fit for celebrity royalty, world-class fine dining restaurants, and thrilling party venues are just some of the incredible features here. 

It already became a hub for famous faces before it opened with the likes of Beyoncé and Jay Z attending its Grand Reveal Weekend celebration on 21st January 2023. 

So, in honour of Atlantis The Royal’s opening, we’re sharing a few reasons why it’s so iconic. 

Showstopping suites

Sleep in the lap of luxury at Atlantis The Royal’s range of decadent rooms and suites. Each one offers shimmering views of the Arabian Gulf or Dubai city skyline, complete with either a gorgeous terrace or balcony. Some suites also include their own infinity pool for a little extra privacy. 

If you want a real showstopper, the resort’s signature penthouses are designed with celebrities and royalty in mind. In fact, it’s rumoured that Beyoncé herself stayed in the Royal Mansion when she performed at the resort’s unofficial invite-only opening party. 

A fitting residence for Queen Bey, the penthouse has its own private entrance, 100-year-old olive trees, an infinity pool, personal butler service and two kitchens (indoor and outdoor!). Now, that’s luxury!

Discover why Atlantis The Royal is perfect for couples.

Feast of dreams

Atlantis The Royal’s food offerings are guaranteed to take your taste buds on a culinary journey across the world – and maybe even through time! 

Among 17 restaurants and bars, eight are helmed by celebrity chefs. Sizzling Spanish tapas can be devoured at Jaleo by Jose Andres and Estiatorio Milos is the place to go for heavenly Greek sharing platters. 

Make sure you feast on mind-bending illusions inspired by British cuisine dating back to the 1300s á la Heston Blumenthal. The celebrity chef will have your jaw-dropping and stomach rumbling over playful dishes such as Meat Fruit and Tipsy Cake.

At La Mar, Gaston Acurio celebrates the flavours of his Peruvian homeland and Ariana’s Persian Kitchen welcomes you with wholesome, hearty, and nutritious Iranian food. Drop by The Little Venice Cake Company atelier where you’ll find a dazzling array of couture cakes by Mich Turner OBE.

After-parties fit for the stars

A seamless destination from day to night, Atlantis The Royal is Dubai’s hottest new party venue. Its entertainment excels in the experiential. Take Cloud 22, the resort’s rooftop bar which offers a relaxed atmosphere, swimming pool and private cabanas by day. 

In the evening, the vibe has a more electrifying undercurrent as the music is turned up a notch and the twinkling lights come on. 

After dinner, the entertainment doesn’t just stop there. Don’t miss the SkyBlaze Fountain, a dance between fire and water that lights up the sky. 

For a taste of the sublime, Resonance by Heston Blumenthal features a menu of molecular gastronomic cocktails overlooked by a serene aquarium of 4,000 jellyfish. 

Beach party vibes can be found at Nobu by the Beach while the legendary Ling Ling by Hakkasan will keep your after-parties going until the sun comes up.

A sought-after destination

It’s no secret that Atlantis The Royal is one of the most exciting new resorts to open in 2023 – and we’re certainly not the only ones buzzing about it. 

In celebration of its launch on 10th February 2023, the resort hosted an ‘unofficial Grand Reveal Weekend’ by invite only on 21st January. Star-studded attendees flocked to the party with celebrities among them including Chloe and Halle Bailey, Rebel Wilson, Nia Long, Millie Mackintosh, and Kendall Jenner. 

The biggest highlight of the evening was an exclusive live performance by Beyoncé herself. Her first show since 2020, she performed a duet with her daughter Blue Ivy while Jay Z and other members of her family watched from the audience. 

The starlit buzz and seal of approval from Queen Bey proves that Atlantis The Royal is the place to be this year and the hype is only just getting started. We can’t wait to see what happens next!
