Dubai luxury hotel – level 3

30-01-2023 07:00

In November 2008, Dubai’s first Atlantis hotel opened with a 5-million-dollar firework display, A-list guests from around the world, and a performance by pop star Kylie Minogue.

14 years later, another Atlantis hotel named Atlantis the Royal opened just a short stroll away from the original resort. Last weekend, it opened with the same extravagance. Beyonce performed to a VIP audience for 24 million dollars, and fireworks lit up the sky above the city’s famous artificial island of Palm Jumeirah.

The hotel has nearly 800 rooms and it’ll open to paying customers on February 10, 2023. It has seven bars and restaurants, 90 pools, gyms, spas, and many other amenities to bring in wealthy vacationers. The daily rate ranges from 1,000 dollars a night to 100,000 for the most luxurious suite.

Difficult words: A-list (a group of the most successful and famous people and organizations), extravagance (spend more money than is necessary or reasonable), amenity (something that provides comfort and enjoyment).
