The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences is on track to open its doors to the public by Q3 of 2020, according to a senior executive.
“The Royal Atlantis project is coming together quite well. All of the design is complete, now it is just about finishing the project,” said Timothy Kelly, executive vice president and managing director of Atlantis Resorts and Residences.
Located on Palm Jumeirah, the $1.4 billion (AED5.14bn), 43-storey development – which will operate as a sister hotel to Atlantis, The Palm – will include 795 resort guest rooms and 231 residences when complete.
“We have two, three, four and five bedroom formats available. We are very excited about that coming to life. We will have the building topped off in the coming weeks and with that we are starting to fit out,” he said.
The new Royal Atlantis is planning on introducing innovative food and beverage concepts and will be home to 13 restaurants, six of which will feature celebrity chefs, including Estiatorio Milos, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Jaleo by Chef José Andrés, Hakkasan and Ariana’s Persian Kitchen.
“Combined with Atlantis The Palm, we will have ten celebrity chef restaurants, all under one campus which doesn’t exist anywhere in the world,” he said. The two Atlantis resorts will have a combined total of 13 restaurants and bars.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
