$100m refurbishment for Atlantis, The Palm

August 2017

Atlantis, The Palm, an iconic five-star destination resort in Dubai, will undertake a three-year refurbishment programme covering the resort’s 1,539 rooms and suites.

The $100-million refurbishment project will see 50 rooms and suites refurbished every six weeks, to ensure that guest experience will not be impacted, with completion benchmarked for 2019 just in time for the World Expo 2020.

The interior design of the typical guestrooms was awarded to UAE-based interior design studio WA International, whose design will be built by fit-out specialist Al Tayer Stocks, which has been awarded the strip out and refurbishment of the 1,532 guest rooms, suites and corridors.

The project will deliver a fresh look and feel, including contemporary carpet designs reminiscent of the turquoise and azure seas, with shades of coral bursting through the newly enhanced guestrooms.

Integrated technology will also be acknowledged throughout with 49-inch flat screen televisions, proximity reader key systems and many more convenient features.  The refurbishment will also extend to balcony areas as well as bathrooms, which will include Greek Didyma marble basins and free-standing bathtubs.

Additionally, the all-day dining restaurant Kaleidoscope is currently under renovation and will see a new dynamic introduced when it reopens next month (September). Further projects planned are the redesign of Ayamna Bar, Nasimi Beach and The Imperial Club.

The room renovation project comes ahead of the launch of Atlantis’ second Dubai property, the $1.4-billion Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences, which is set to change the landscape of Dubai upon launch in late 2019.

Located on the crescent of The Palm and next to the iconic Atlantis resort, this new generation of distinctive luxury will offer 231 residences and 795 new lavish guestrooms and suites on over 10 hectares of land.
