Atlantis Resorts & Residences may expand in Bali and Cancun


Confirmed new openings from the brand – which sees about 50% of its sales come via travel agents – include Atlantis, Sanya in China, due at the end of 2017, and Atlantis, Hawaii, due to open at the Ko Olina Resort in West Oahu in 2021.

The design for the Hawaii resort has been decided upon during the past month but details of this remain under wraps.

The Royal Atlantis Residences on The Palm in Dubai was also launched just last month, set for completion in the last quarter of 2019 and expected to attract about 30% of its clientele from the UK market.

The resort, located on the crescent of The Palm and next to the existing Atlantis hotel, will offer 232 residences and 780 guest rooms, and is expected to go on sale in July or August of 2019.

Serge Zaalof, chief operating officer of Atlantis Resorts and Residences, told TTG that $1 million was being invested in renovating the 1,500-room Atlantis, The Palm.

By 2020, all of the rooms as well as the restaurants and bars will have been overhauled. A new area in the Aquaventure water park is also being developed for children.

Asked whether the brand was planning even further expansion, Zaalof said: “Our shareholders are really interested in expansion.

“We are looking at a world map, and Cancun and Bali are among the destinations being considered.

“Atlantis, The Palm has been a huge success, so we want to create the same around the world.”
