  • The dining options at Atlantis The Royal combine pioneering chefs with show-stopping experiences across 17 restaurants and bars. Signature restaurants from culinary icons include Gaston Acurio, Ariana Bundy, Costas Spiliadis and Jose Andres, while Nobu will be opening their first ever pool and beach club and Heston Blumenthal will introduce Dinner, as well as his debut bar, Resonance.
  • Sitting adjacent to Cloud 22 on the 22nd floor is Ling Ling, a day-to-night destination lounge and dining experience featuring Asian-inspired cuisine from Tao Group Hospitality. Featuring 180-degree views of the glittering Dubai skyline, guests can expect a culturally rich, multi-sensory, dining and late-night party experience.

Entertainment & Nightlife:

  • The six towers that make up Atlantis The Royal are brought together by a 90-metre long Skypool on the 22nd floor, which 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, this venue is the jewel in Atlantis The Royal’s crown. Set to become the iconic entertainment and nightlife destination in Dubai, revellers can dance away the day, into night to the world’s best DJ’s whist overlooking the glittering Dubai skyline.
  • Atlantis The Royal will also be home to Heston Blumenthal’s inaugural cocktail bar, which is set to feature a 6.5m high jellyfish aquarium, housing 4,000 moon jellies. Titled Resonance by Heston Blumenthal, this entirely new and unique concept will offer memorable culinary experiences through considered, meticulously crafted and complex cocktails, food, and purposeful theatre. 
  • The resort is home to a vast array of fountains and water installations designed by the world’s authority on water features, WET Design. This includes the magnificent Skyblaze; a fountain that breathes fire and the first and only permanent fire and water performance fountain in the Middle East.

Before opening to guests, Atlantis The Royal will hold a spectacular Grand Reveal in January with a star-studded line up in attendance and an event that promises to match the ambition of the new resort. This will echo the spectacular launch of Atlantis The Palm in 2008, where guests included Robert DeNiro, Gerard Butler, Kylie Minogue and Priyanka Chopra, with a firework display that could be seen from space.
