Kerzner’s Atlantis set for September opening
ATLANTIS, The Palm will open this September as the flagship resort on The Palm Jumeirah. It will be the first resort to open its doors on Dubai’s revolutionary island.
Created by Kerzner International Holdings, international developer and operator of destination resorts, the new 1,539 room resort began accepting reservations February 1.
Atlantis anticipates Middle East residents will account for 30 per cent of all visitors, with UAE residents expected to make up a quarter of guests from the region.
With its location atop the crescent of The Palm Jumeirah, the opening of Atlantis, The Palm will be a landmark event, redefining tourism in Dubai and the Middle East as the first truly integrated entertainment resort.
Reflecting executive chairman Sol Kerzner’s vision to transport guests into a dazzling, imaginative world, the resort will encompass a 460,000 sq m site with 170,000 sq m of water themed amusement at Aquaventure, extensive fresh and salt water pools and lagoon exhibits, an open aired marine habitat, a seemingly endless stretch of beach, luxury boutiques, numerous dining choices including four celebrity chef restaurants, an exciting nightclub, a spa and fitness club, and 5,600 sq m of meeting and function space.
'This is an exciting time for the Middle East and for Kerzner International. With the introduction of a new world icon in The Palm Jumeirah and our position as the flagship resort of this icon, Atlantis, The Palm is situated as the new gateway to this incredible region,” said Sol Kerzner.
“Out of a vision that married the wonders of marine life with stunning elegance and sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf alongside the most exciting water playground in this part of the world, we have developed an experience within Atlantis that is truly different than the existing pleasures of Dubai. We're very proud of the final product and cannot wait to share it in September when we open our doors.'
Each of the 1,539 guestrooms and suites in the Royal Towers will feature private balconies and views over the Arabian Gulf or The Palm Jumeirah. With rates starting at $454 per night, guests may choose from a variety of accommodation.
