  • Published on January 23

Live in Dubai or not, you will have woken up to countless stories, tweets, Instagram stories and TikTok videos surrounding Atlantis The Royal’s Grand Reveal Party.

From Beyoncé’s showstopping performance, to restaurant parties and a visit by Dubai’s HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

“This is it,” is the tagline of the super resort, but there is so much more laying ahead of the billion-dollar property. So for the many that could not attend the party, what happens now?

Atlantis The Royal opens next month

While the weekend had hundreds of people in the rooms and restaurants, it isn’t until next month the public can stay. The resort opens on Friday, February 10 for guests, with a two-night minimum stay for the foreseeable future.

Rooms are starting at around AED3,500 per night for a 55 sq m seascape king, going all the way up to AED20,000 a night for the sky pool villa.

Restaurants are already open

The luxury resort comprises 18 new restaurants, many helmed by celebrity chefs. Read on for more on the F&B outlets, which can be booked now.

Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner by Heston

First announced back in 2018, the British experimental chef behind the famous The Fat Duck in Bray, Heston Blumenthal will be bringing his creative spark and innovative gastronomy dishes to Dubai in what will be his first restaurant in the city – Dinner By Heston Blumenthal.

His name will also be above the door in an experimental lounge bar, Resonance by Heston Blumenthal.

Nobu by the Beach

Taking Nobu’s winning luxury formula and turning it alfresco, Nobu by the Beach will be a pool and beach club blend, while still serving the high-end Japanese cuisine the master is known for.

La Mar by Gastón Acurio

A gastronomic, experimental Latin American restaurant, La Mar will serve up some intriguing dishes alongside many of the country’s classics like ceviche, antichucos, grilled meats and more. Relying heavily on traditional Peruvian seafood but with sustainably-sourced grub at its core, the team behind the restaurant said that all fish served at La Mar “will be sustainably sourced to alleviate over-exploited fish species”.
