Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) and Kerzner International Holdings Limited, a leading international developer and operator of destination resorts and luxury hotels, have recently announced plans to invest 1.4 billion in the expansion of the iconic Atlantis Resort, by introducing The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences.
“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.
The new resort, to be completed by 2018, will heavily contribute to Dubai’s tourism and hotel industry, especially since the emirate prepares to host the Expo World Fair in 2020, H.E. Mohammed Al Shaibani said.
“The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences will offer a new resort living experience, completely taking it to the next level, while adding an entirely new dynamic with our ultimate residences,” commented Alan Leibman, Chief Executive Officer, Kerzner International.
The Royal Atlantis Resort will stand 46 storeys tall and feature spectacular ocean views, allowing guests to feel that they are literally floating between the sky and sea.
The new project also includes nearly 800 new guest rooms and lavish suites; 250 luxury residences, providing doorstep access to restaurants, entertainment and resort experiences with signature service; new marine experiences and a chic new Sky Pool soaring 90 meters above The Palm.
From soaring private gardens and private infinity pools, to new world-class restaurants with award-winning celebrity chefs and luxury retail boutiques for shopping pleasures, guests and residents will be spoilt for choice at this new exciting and awe-inspiring destination.
The innovative resort will also house an indulgent Spa, introducing traditional and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies, as well as a cutting-edge fitness center.
Younger guests will also experience their own adventures, from discovering exotic marine life, to culinary lessons, to the latest in gaming.
In addition, event spaces will be available for both large and small gatherings, whether for business or for pleasure.
The Royal Atlantis Resort, with its luxury residences and interactive marine activities, will continue re-interpreting the myth of Atlantis while unveiling ground-breaking experiences.
