Experience the life of the rich and famous (if only by watching our sneak peek video at Atlantis, The Palm)
Ever wondered how the other half live? To experience a taste of the uber high life, we paid a visit to the Royal Bridge Suite at the Atlantis, The Palm.
With it being one of Dubai’s most iconic hotels, it’s not surprising that their most expensive place to stay is every bit as regal, lavish and spacious as you could imagine.
Accessed only via private lift, the three-bedroom suite sits on the 22nd floor and spans a massive 924 square metres, stretching out to form the bridge that connects the two Atlantis Towers (hence its name – The Royal Bridge Suite). The hallway is every bit as ornate as you would imagine with crystal ornaments, chandeliers and stunning hand-painted ceilings.
The octagonal master bedroom comes complete with his and hers walk-in wardrobes, offices and bathrooms finished with 22-carat gold, along with its own private balcony, giving you views spanning the entire Palm Jumeirah. We wouldn’t mind staying in the guest suites either as they’re just as fancy with luxurious decor and jacuzzis. Even the soap is luxurious, made from 14-carat gold. The suite also has its own massage room so if you were needing some extra R&R, you’d just need to hit speed-dial for your own spa therapist.
The lounge area is huge as well, with grand pillars and majestic golden drapes framing the floor to ceiling windows on either side of the room. Stepping out onto the vast balconies, it’s hard to choose our favourite view, with spectacular Palm Jumeirah sights on one side and endless views out into the Arabian Gulf on the other.
Entertaining guests? That wouldn’t be a problem at the Royal Bridge Suite, as the grand dining table seats up to 16 people – you just might have to shout for someone to pass the salt. Afterwards, you could enjoy a nightcap at the suite’s very own bar, located in the library.
The suite has been home for a number of celebrities including Kim Kardashian West.
The Royal Bridge Suits will cost you upwards of Dhs130,000 to stay here for a night, so if you’ve got that to spare, feel free to invite us along…
