With sprawling terraces, private pools and lavish bathrooms, Atlantis The Royal’s rooms are fit for royalty
Among Dubai’s iconic buildings, there is one that stands out from the crowd – Atlantis The Royal. The unique 43-storey structure sits on Palm Island, just a stone’s throw from sister property Atlantis, The Palm, and offers guests a stay unlike any other.
Atlantis The Royal is an experiential resort that promises guests a true taste of luxury. It boasts 795 lavish rooms, 17 tempting restaurants and a state-of-the-art wellness centre – all crowned by a 90-metre sky pool that offers unmatched views of the Arabian Gulf and Palm Island.
Each room embodies the hotel’s iconic design and promises comfort, with opulent bedrooms and bathrooms and five-star service to match. Whether your clients choose a guest room, suite or signature penthouse, a dazzling stay is guaranteed.
The views aren’t the only thing that take guests’ breath away in the sophisticated Palmscape or Seascape rooms. The king and queen-sized beds promise a peaceful night’s sleep, while the walk-in wardrobes, standalone bathtubs and exclusive amenities help guests live like royalty.
Couples who opt for one of these rooms will enjoy the seclusion offered by the private balcony, while families can benefit from connecting rooms.
For couples looking for privacy and luxury in equal measure, recommend the Junior Sky View Suite. Here, guests have their own private furnished terrace, spacious living space, marble bathroom and an inviting king-sized bed.
Slightly bigger is the Sky Terrace Suite with an impressive outdoor space. These suites come with two or three bedrooms, making them a great option for families or small groups.
Then there’s the Sky Pool Villa, where the private infinity pool is the star of the show. Gaze over the Dubai skyline, relax on the sunloungers, or simply sit back and enjoy drinks and snacks from the 24-hour butler service that is included with every suite.
At Atlantis The Royal, the Signature Penthouses are synonymous with high-end living. Sprawling wraparound terraces, glistening infinity pools, floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious dining rooms and private kitchens are just a few of the lavish amenities that make the Panoramic, Horizon, Skyscape and Palmscape Penthouses so special.
The one and two-bedroom options – some of which are set across two floors – are ideal for couples and small groups, but the cream of the crop has to be the Royal Mansion. Its four-bedroom, split-level layout is perfect for bigger groups or those wanting to entertain, plus the outdoor kitchen and 10-seater sunken lounge are sure to impress any guest.
To accompany the five-star rooms, Atlantis The Royal boasts 17 high-end restaurants and bars to ensure that guests’ tastebuds are well and truly tantalised.
An impressive roster of celebrity chefs, including Heston Blumenthal and Gaston Acurio, have helped put Atlantis The Royal on the culinary map, making it one of Dubai’s premier dining destinations.
International flavours are commonplace here – head to Spanish-owned Jaleo for a hearty paella and fruity sangria or get a taste of some West Asian cuisine at Ariana’s Persian Kitchen, where the filet kebab and flavourful ice cream are firm favourites.

By choosing one of the Royal Club rooms, guests can unlock a host of exclusive benefits throughout their stay at the resort.
The Royal Club King and Queen rooms come with sweeping views as standard, as well as all-day access to the private Royal Club Lounge.
Whether guests choose to start the day with an indulgent breakfast, enjoy a few evening cocktails and snacks (all complimentary) or take some time to simply relax, the Royal Club Lounge adds an extra element of luxury to any stay.
Guests at Atlantis The Royal can now sample an Emirati afternoon tea in the hotel’s pristine lobby at The Royal Tearoom.
The Emirati Afternoon Tea launched in July and is an authentic twist on a British classic. Expect Arabic pastries, traditional khanfaroosh, which are similar to doughnuts, and fried doughballs known as luqaimat.
There’s also the option to enjoy a Signature Afternoon Tea, with scones, finger sandwiches and desserts, the selection of which is influenced by in-season fruits.
