Bookings for Atlantis The Royal, the newest and most spectacular resort to shape the Dubai skyline, are now being taken, with stays available from 2023.

Set to reshape ultra-luxury stays, the 795-room resort surges 43 storeys high with unparalleled views over the Arabian Sea and Palm Island. 44 of its Suites and Signature Penthouses offer private infinity pools, inviting guests to swim amongst the clouds, along with an elite butler service where every need is anticipated.

Atlantis The Royal will be home to no fewer than 17 restaurants and bars. The latter will include Nobu’s first ever pool and beach club, while Heston Blumenthal will launch his debut bar, Resonance, complete with a 6.5-metre-high jellyfish aquarium, housing 4,000 moon jellies.

The six towers that make up the resort are brought together by a 90-metre long Skypool on the 22nd floor. This in turn forms part of an outdoor entertainment experience called Cloud 22, featuring VIP cabanas with private plunge pools, a swim up-bar and a glittering head-shaped DJ booth. A vast array of water installations meanwhile will include the magnificent Skyblaze, a fountain that breathes fire.
