Dubai, where do I start with this amazing place, it is a playground for absolutely anyone, whether you are a multi-millionaire or couple that is going on their first holiday together. This city has so much to offer from seven-star hotels to riding a camel in the desert. It requires more than a week to experience the real Dubai which is why it is best that you purchase a property, that way to can take your time to discover the hidden jewels that Dubai has.
At the end of this year, the fabulous The Royal Atlantis The Palm will be the place to be. This new development located on the man-made island shaped like a palm tree will give you unparallel views of the Arabian Sea and the must have location to have your residence.
But why Dubai?
This is a city that is accessible by 80 per cent of countries that are within a 10-hour flight. You can fly to Moscow in just over 5 hours, Hong Kong in 7 hours and London in just over 7 hours. This is a city that offers more than the year-round hot sun, but something for anyone from endless shopping to desert safaris and International Schools.
The Royal Atlantis Resort is unique and can't be missed whether you are arriving by air, land or sea. The design is inspired by making guests and owners feel at home, a place where you can retreat too, away from work life and recharge. The resort has seven grand lobbies, multiple pools, a fitness centre & spa and so much more. I think that highlight for me is the 90-metre high infinity pool which will make you feel like you are on top of the world. It will be the place to be either to watch the sun come up and romantic cocktails as the sun goes down.
When it comes to cuisine, residents can expect service from likes of Gordan Ramsay, Giorgio Locatelli and Nobu Matsuhisa and In addition, Residents and Guests alike will be able to enjoy multi-award winning restaurant ‘Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, the world-renowned Spanish dining concept Jaleo by Chef José Andrés, the famed Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan and Popular Iranian–American celebrity TV chef and cookbook author, ‘Ariana’s Persian Kitchen’.
You have over 200 apartments to choose from, each different with views that will stay with you and make your guests feel envious. The developers have ensured that maximum square footage has been allocated to the residences, over 17,000 square foot and with ceiling heights of three metres.
Each home is unique, with over 82 different layouts, custom closets and bespoke fittings throughout each property, making sure that your residence is exactly how you would want it. The developers have gone to great lengths to source the finest materials, for example, in the kitchens, there is a combination of white quartz and marble countertops, Gaggenau and Miele appliances with handcrafted units. Now there are three types of properties that are available, the first being Skycourts which boasts jaw-dropping views of the Arabian Gulf. With up to four bedrooms and large elevated terraces, a private outdoor pool and stunning landscaped gardens, this property is all about making a statement. The second is the Garden Suites which are set across two floors which hosts two landscaped gardens, a private pool and a vast entertainment space. These villas are great for families who want a more relaxed environment. The third are the four Penthouses, available for those who want the very best in sophistication, with views of both the Arabian Gulf and the spectacular Dubai skyline. Each penthouse has its own terrace, featuring a breathtaking pool. These world class dining and living spaces provide perfect luxury living, ideal for relaxing with your family or entertaining with friends.
In addition to the vast amount of space that comes with each home, owners also have access to their very own private gym, spa and both indoor & outdoor pool. This is perfect for those that wanted everything at their fingertips and absolute privacy.
I get to view and write about new developments and properties all the time, and I find it very difficult to excited about most of them, but every so often a project like The Royal Atlantis comes across my desk and it blows me away. I like that the developers are investing a lot of time and energy to make each home different so much so that Sybille de Margerie has commissioned a host of talented modern artists to handcraft unique works to personalise each home. This is what I look for when I am in the market to purchase a new property, not just for myself but my family too.
Residences at The Royal Atlantis start from AED 6,995,000 (approximately $1.9m/£1.4m/RM7.5m).
