The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences, a new generation of distinctive luxury resort and residential apartments located on the crescent of The Palm in Dubai, has introduced a record number of pools in one development. Its 90 swimming pools provide a much-coveted microclimate throughout the building, courtesy of master architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, as well offering an enviable number of places to lounge and cool off at for residents and guests alike. The coveted property also features an enviable Sky Pool elevated at 90-metres as well as jaw-dropping water fountains and aqua features throughout.
Debuting as Dubai’s first ‘super prime’ residences, The Royal Atlantis will offer 231 luxury apartments with interiors by Sybille de Margerie, comprised of two, three, four and five-bedroom residences ranging from 1,400 to 17,000 square feet when it opens in 2019. Additionally, the property will feature 795 hotel rooms and suites. Located on the crescent of The Palm next to the iconic Atlantis, The Palm resort, this new generation of residential luxury offers a sophisticated lifestyle experience encapsulated in dramatic architecture.
Situated on the 22nd floor, is the Sky Pool, the jewel in the crown of the development’s collection of 90 swimming pools. The 90-metre-high infinity pool will include lounging areas, a DJ booth, private cabanas, bars and restaurants. The space itself has been meticulously designed, featuring unique architectural elements to help the space transition from a relaxing day-time destination to a sophisticated nightlife spot that will redefine entertainment in Dubai.
In addition to the exquisite sky pool, residents of The Royal Atlantis will have access to the premier residence pool situated at beach level aside the property, with its own private beachfront overlooking the water. Additionally, the property offers a family pool, children’s pool and resort pool providing something for everyone.
At the pinnacle of residential sophistication are The Royal Atlantis Penthouses. With spectacular views of both the Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline, these are some of the most sought-after homes in the city; two of the three penthouses have already sold. Each penthouse has its own terrace and breathtaking pool. These super prime world-class living spaces provide the ultimate in luxury living, ideal for relaxing or entertaining to the backdrop of the Dubai city skyline.
The Royal Atlantis Sky Courts boast uninterrupted sea views and feature up to four bedrooms with vast elevated terraces, each with its own private outdoor pool and architecturally landscaped gardens. The pool’s careful positioning provides maximized views both inside, under water and outside of the pool, while still maintaining complete privacy. Similarly, each of these private pools has been carefully positioned providing maximum frontage across the front of balcony, so that when residents are inside their pool it’s as if they are swimming towards the edge of the building for a premium ‘telescoping’ experience.
“The pools are not only a huge asset to the residents, but an integral and functional part of the building’s design,” said Elie Gamburg, Director at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. “The pools help to create a microclimate within the resort helping to provide comfort for the residences. All units are carefully designed for maximum comfort through the integration of water, breeze and shade. Where else can you have the experience of swimming in a private pool elevated 40-storeys above the ground, floating underwater while having a view over the skyline of Dubai?”
Water is an element that features not only as part of the 90 pools, but throughout the entire living area of the resort and residences. The icon makers known as WET have created five dramatic installations that celebrate and integrate fire and water throughout the property. Best known for designing some of the world’s most spectacular fountains, the California-based company works to harness the power of nature to create iconic experiences and showpieces that unleash the magic of water.
