Atlantis The Royal, Dubai 

The place to see and be seen

This shiny new hotel is the sister of iconic Atlantis, The Palm and is bringing next-level luxury to Dubai.

There’s a real buzz about this slick new resort. Atlantis The Royal has reinvented luxury with its culinary excellence, unique experiences and extraordinary Signature Penthouses. The vibe is young, with showstopping bars and high energy nightlife such as the Instagrammable beach club Nobu by the Beach and the sky-high Cloud 22. But it’s not short of relaxation hangouts either. Chill on the private beach, gaze out over the Arabian Sea from one of the jaw-dropping infinity pools, or emerge transformed after a holistic treatment or hammam ritual at the spa.

Why we love Atlantis The Royal, Dubai
