The development is located beside the existing Atlantis The Palm and takes the form of a two–tower residential, retail and beach club complex.
There are 795 rooms in the resort wing and 231 apartments in the residences arm.
The 231 residences include two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments as wellas skycourts, penthouses and garden suites. There are over 80 different layout variations ranging from 1,434 to 17,088 square feet.
The unique design allows both maximum exposure to the Gulf as well as providing sky-courts and terraces with shaded gardens and pools.
All rooms have deep private balconies along with access to public terrace space at the hotel club, lounge and roof-top restaurant.
The terraces are designed to both maximise shade and direct prevailing breezes over water and vegetation for passive cooling.
The hotel and residences towers are joined together by a "spa bridge" which has a 90-metre sky-pool at a height of 100 metres. It may be used by hotel guests and residents as well. There will also be 65 outdoor pools in the residential wing.
The resort includes a conference space, dining, resort amenities, and a large light-filled open lobby.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Jaleo by José André were named as two of the first restaurants to open in the property. Others include Milos by Costas Spiliadis, La Mar by Gastón Acurio, Hakkasan, and Ariana’s Kitchen by Ariana Bundy.
There is space for 1,500 cars at the complex, which takes up over 10 hectares of land.
About 20 apartments at Royal Atlantis Residences went on sale in January 2017 in addition to the 27 that were released in late 2016. The developer does not allow investors to flip or resell the properties until 60 per cent of the unit prices have been paid.
The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences was estimated to cost US$1.4 billion to build.
