Atlantis, The Palm, has begun a three-year refurbishment programme, costing $100 million, that will be completed for Expo2020.
The project will also see a revamp of the brand’s second property, The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences located on The Palm.
Fifty rooms and suites will be refurbished every six weeks, as part of the project, to ensure that guest experience will not be impacted.
News of the renovation comes as the property announced a healthy start to 2017 with an occupancy rate of 93%, an 11% increase from this time last year.
