Atlantis The Palm to spend $250m on renovation

DUBAI, November 22, 2018

Atlantis The Palm, one of Dubai’s most recognisable hotels, is currently spending $250 million on a two-year renovation programme, a report said.
 
The renovation will include importing new sand to its beach and repainting its entire exterior, said the Gulf News report.
 
The hotel, which was one of the first to open on The Palm when it launched 10 years ago, is facing increasing competition from new entrants to the neighbourhood, it said.
 
Aquaventure water park, the hotel’s centrepiece, will be joined by a new attraction named the Wavehouse, which will offer family-oriented evening entertainment, according to the company. Both will then be linked back to the main hotel.
 
The destination, which will span over 2,000 sq m, is set to feature retro arcade games, bowling, a 15-m-tall play structure, in addition to restaurant facilities, a terrace, and a licensed bar.
 
“This is going to be one of the premier family entertainment centres to be added to the Middle East region,” said Timothy Kelly, the hotel’s general manager and senior vice president of operations. 
 
Elsewhere, work is under way on refitting the club lounge, adding a new lobby lounge and VIP check-in, and painting the outside of the hotel. A number of bars are also being overhauled.
