Atlantis The Palm, Dubai: Polishing a diamond

Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, one of the UAE’s most iconic properties, recently commenced an extensive refurbishment project, which will take three years to complete.

The luxury resort will reimagine its 1,539 rooms and suites, with 50 scheduled to be refurbished every six weeks. The project is expected to reach completion in 2019, in time for the World Expo 2020.

The refurbishment is set to further elevate the hotel, enticing more travellers with a charming and refreshing new look as well as contemporary carpet designs reflecting the ocean and a new vibrant shade of coral within the guestrooms. 

Adding to this, rooms and suites will benefit from new technology, including 49-inch TVs, proximity reader key systems and much more. Balcony areas will also be enhanced, as well as bathrooms, which will boast luxurious Greek Didyma marble basins and free-standing bathtubs. 

Atlantis The Palm, Dubai’s all-day-dining restaurant, Kaleidoscope, is also being renovated and will re-open in September 2017, while Ayamna Bar, Nasimi Beach and The Imperial Club are all set to be redesigned.

Serge Zaalof, chief operating officer, Atlantis Resorts & Residences enthused: “With our continued efforts to enhance the guest experience, we are confident that the rest of the year will be successful. Our aim is to constantly innovate with the new room offering as well as the redesign of restaurants and bars. We will wow our guests and exceed expectations.”

This game-changing project precedes the opening of Atlantis’ $1.4 billion Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences, scheduled to inaugurate in late 2019 on the crescent of The Palm. This upscale property will comprise 231 Residences and 795 stunning guest rooms and suites, spanning 10 hectares of land.
