New mega-hotel nears completion in Dubai

One of the world”s most costly hotels opened on the Palm Jumeriah in Dubai this month.

With a construction bill of $1.5 billion (£800 million), Atlantis covers some 114 acres and includes over 1,500 rooms.

Its setting is a newly created island just off the coast of Dubai city, which has been conceived specifically for the hotel.

While its name might recall the numerous themed hotels some 8,000 miles away in Las Vegas, the resort”s first priority is luxury.

Double rooms start at a relatively affordable £230 a night, but the finest suite will set you back £15,000. It does boast a gold leaf-lined dining table, however.

As with any good resort, the in-house attractions are just as impressive as the accommodation. The aquapark includes a 1.5 mile lazy river, with another seven rides and numerous swimming pools and other facilities.

Seventeen restaurants will cater to any taste of palette and their list reads like the contents page from the annual Michelin guide: there are 11 of its famous stars accompanying the names of the respected chefs with locations in the complex.

World-famous hotels are no rarity in this part of the world, but the emergence of the Atlantis has raised the bar for the rest.
