Atlantis The Royal

Dubai Beach, Dubai

Virgin rating

The hotel

The new iconic landmark in Dubai is here, and it’s unlike any other hotel you’ve seen before. If you thought Atlantis, The Palm was impressive (and we agree it is!), then this addition to the Atlantis portfolio will redefine your perspective of luxury and innovation. Atlantis The Royal is where impossible becomes possible, and luxury mixes with experience, challenging the boundaries of imagination. It’s all about space, natural sunlight and feeling like you can quite literally reach the clouds. Speaking of clouds, Cloud 22 brings you a rooftop pool club that’s on another level, literally! Book a private cabana with your own plunge pool, and enjoy an exquisite cocktail with even better views as the sun moves across the horizon and the music goes up a notch. The alluring design of the hotel ensures complete privacy in all room types, 44 of which are available with private infinity pools. On arrival, the magnificent lobby is designed around the 4 natural elements, as you’re welcomed by Droplets, the towering lobby sculpture inspired by the first drop of rain in the desert. And whilst the hotel is full of striking features, bespoke artwork, and large aquariums, it’s the little touches that will also take your breath away. Your bed will be separated from the bathroom by a glass wall that frosts over at a single touch. From your balcony the views across The Palm and Dubai’s skyline are exquisite, but ultimately you won’t need to venture that far with the endless lists of fun, food and frolics on offer here! 17 restaurants each tell their own story, AWAKEN Wellness will have you revitalised in no time, and the nightlife will have you dancing until the early hours. From fountain shows to fire shows, one of the largest jellyfish tanks you’ll ever see, and waterslides galore, Atlantis The Royal is the place where something incredible happens at every minute.

Great property but staff needs a lot of training. The staff at breakfast at Gastronomy seemed incredibly stressed, forgot about our coffee order twice and at 12:05 advised us that the coffee machine was closed. I also tried to ask concierge to send a gift bag up to my room and was asked to go outside and ask a bellboy to do it. I then asked the front desk, who told me to go to concierge and when I told them about being asked to go outside they said yes that’s the policy and they were busy. Third person said they would have it sent up and the concierge manager repeated that I should ask the bell boy outside. When I told them no other hotel in the UAE would ask this, he said he didn’t know any other hotels just Atlantis. A little humility and a look at service standards in the UAE (and globally) would help. Read less

Great experience Sai in the royal lounge was fantastic. Lovely quiet area inside for breakfast. You can order all beers abs sports inclusive of royal club 7am - 10pm. They could improve the TV channel options to include sport. F1 was not available or English premier league.
