The extension of Atlantis The Palm Dubai is The Royal Atlantis with a spectacular building as one is used to in the emirate. It is certainly a new landmark on the artificially created island and can be seen from afar.
Anyone who has already stayed at the Atlantis Hotel Dubai will quickly have noticed that this is one of the most spectacular hotels in the city where you can stay. You can say it is an adventure resort and one of the most expensive where you can stay overnight. But the demand is so great that the Royal Atlantis had to be expanded.
This sister hotel has been under construction for a few years and the opening is planned for the end of 2021. As a hotel guest, you can expect a very high standard there and this hotel will again set new standards of what is currently possible. The highlight is the sky pool on the roof of the hotel where you can see the whole island. However, this hotel will be a bit smaller than the Atlantis.
Model of the Royal Atlantis in Dubai
The Royal Atlantis is right next to the Atlantis Hotel. More precisely along Crescent Road between the Aquaventure water park and the Sofitel The Palm hotel. There was still a large space available so that such a large hotel could even be built there. Furthermore, you should know that the island The Palm Jumeirah is very popular with tourists. Everyone would like to stay there overnight.
But you also have to know that you are on an island and you need 15 to 20 minutes by taxi to get back to the mainland to the Dubai Marina. Incidentally, the distance to Dubai International Airport is 42 kilometers and it takes about 45 minutes. We recommend staying there for at least two to three nights and then being able to enjoy the resort.
View from The Palm Tower
As a hotel guest, you can look forward to 693 rooms and 102 suites. You have a large selection there and can choose between two different views. That would be a sea view and then even more spectacular the view of the palm island. The standard is very high, but you have to be prepared to spend a lot more money on an overnight stay there. Certainly, you don’t go on holiday there every year and that’s why you should treat yourself to it once. You will definitely be thrilled there. Our recommendation is to book the Ocean Deluxe Room category.
Now we come to the catering at The Royal Atlantis, which has 13 restaurants and bars. There is also a highlight there and you can expect Michelin star cuisine there. When booking this hotel you should always make sure that you book half board. That means you get a delicious breakfast early in the morning and in the evening you can always help yourself to the buffet.
There is international, oriental, and Asian cuisine on offer, so there is certainly something for everyone. If that’s still not enough for you, you can drive to the sister hotel where there are another 20 restaurants. If you only book breakfast you have to look for a restaurant on the island. There you could, for example, visit the Nakheel Mall or the promenade The Pointe.
The hotel at night
More and more hotels in Dubai have a sky pool. That is of course also the case at The Royal Atlantis and there you have a sensational view of the island. But there are other pools in the large outdoor area which is very large. In our opinion, you will quickly feel at home there and therefore you should spend most of your time in this hotel so that you can enjoy it.
Then there will be a spa area that is sure to be popular over the months over the winter. There is even an extra children’s pool for the children so they can splash around undisturbed. Incidentally, more and more hotels are offering this where there are separate areas for adults and children. This is optimally implemented there and that’s why many families with children always decide to stay there.
As you have already learned, The Royal Atlantis Hotel is right next to one of the most beautiful water parks in the United Arab Emirates. As a hotel guest, you get free entry and don’t have to pay anything for it. By the way, if you stay at the Atlantis The Palm then the ticket is also free there. So you only have advantages there that you should use. Furthermore, you can save a lot of money there as the visit to the water park is not that cheap either.
Surely you can imagine that an overnight stay there is not particularly cheap. But you should treat yourself to that and you won’t be disappointed. Our tip is to stay there may be only two nights and then switch back to a hotel that is a little cheaper. This gives you the opportunity to get to know the hotel.
The Royal Atlantis is certainly another landmark of the glittering metropolis Dubai that attracts tourists. The demand will then be very high and you have to look for a room early on, even if the prices are very high. That doesn’t put most tourists off.
