The Royal Atlantis

The Royal Atlantis

Reinforcing and reimagining one of the world’s most iconic hospitality brands, KPF designed Phase 2 of Dubai’s Royal Atlantis to create unprecedented spaces that elevate the experience of guests in bold new ways.

Building on the success of the current Atlantis resort, the dramatic openings that define Phase 2 punctuate a striking new icon for Dubai. Maximizing exposure to the Gulf and the unparalleled Dubai skyline, landscaped sky-courts and terraces ensure that a substantial portion of the hotel rooms and residences have outdoor space, private pools, and shaded gardens. These sky-courts and terraces are designed to maximize guest experience by amplifying shading and directing prevailing breezes over water and vegetation. This creates private oases that are passively cooled and comfortable for much of the day, most of the year.

The terraces step down towards one another and are linked by the “sky-bridge.” This sky-bridge frames a grand gateway between the two buildings, punctuated by pools, lounges, cabanas and other amenities creating a lush oasis. The breezeways frame conference space, resort amenities, and an expansive open lobby at the heart of the complex.
