Atlantis, The Royal
Probably one of the most exciting upcoming openings Dubai has to look forward to is the opening of Atlantis, The Royal. Set to be one lavish hotel (right next to its sibling Atlantis, The Palm), the stunning structure will boast a 90m high sky pool, named Cloud 22, and a collection of elegant rooms, suites and signature penthouses featuring stunning views of the Dubai skyline and Arabian Sea. Other exciting headlines from the new hotel will be a wellness facility offering treatments, a private beach and several pools.
But the food is what we’re most excited about. Atlantis, The Royal will be filled with some top-notch restaurants headed up by some of the most respected chefs from around the globe too. This means it will be a must-visit destination for residents and tourists alike. Wondering what big names are opening up eateries inside? Peruvian flavours from Latin America are what La Mar by Gastón Acurio is going to be all about, Nobu by the Beach will be the first of its kind globally, while Spanish cuisine crafted by top chef José Andrés being served up at Jaleo Dubai.
Quirky British chef Heston Blumenthal will also be bringing his creations to Dubai with the opening of world-famous Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Ling Ling Dubai on the 23rd floor of the hotel is set to offer some banging views.
Due to open: November 2022.

If you are looking for a unique and eco-friendly overnight experience, then from Friday September 23 you can check into a posh glamping experience from Nara Desert Escapes. Imagined and designed by architect Gianni Ranaulo, guests will stay in private ‘nests’ that look truly picture-perfect. With only 14 nests available per night we expect they will be filled with happy campers throughout winter. Far away from a stuffy tent, the nests sound totally luxurious, with each having a bedroom area, private en-suite bathroom, outdoor majlis and your own dedicated Mudeef, who will ensure you have the most memorable experience possible.
