Ask the Experts! | Atlantis, The Palm

This week we caught up with the team at Atlantis, The Palm, to find out why their venue continues to be so incredibly popular with brides and grooms form all cultures, year after year!

Having your wedding at Atlantis, The Palm must be a dream come true for many brides – do you have event spaces to suit every couple?

Whether a couple are looking for a small
wedding or large scale celebration, Atlantis, The Palm has a variety of options
including traditional and unique spaces; from ballrooms to underwater venues.
There are three ballrooms and one Majlis that host a range of events from
conferences to weddings. A permanent team of 36 colleagues, the Atlantis MICE
and event team operate 24 hours a day and have carried out approximately 5,600
events since the launch of Atlantis in 2008.

Which venues are the most popular for weddings at the moment and which ones are hidden gems?

It’s no secret that planning a wedding can be
difficult, and to help find the most popular venues at Atlantis, The Palm, we
asked the organisers at the hotel. Event planners can host special outdoor
evenings at the resort’s Zero Entry Pool, an expansive outdoor space that accommodates
up to 2,000 guests with a stunning view of the resort. This equates to 4,326
sqm of event space (excluding the outdoor areas), with the Asateer tent adding
an additional 2,100 sqm of event space. The Atlantis Ballroom can accommodate
gala dinners and events for up to 1,500 guests, and gives a direct access to
the impressive Royal Terrace

The most unusual location for events is The
Lost Chambers Aquarium, which offers breath taking underwater views, and is
home to 65,000 mesmerising marine animals. This stunning setting is ideal for
medium to larger tailor-made events starting from 100 guests. The most
luxurious event venue is The Royal Bridge Suite which offers 180-degree views
of The Palm Island and the Arabian Sea

How do you help a couple create a perfect wedding?

Once people have finalized their wedding
venue, they’ll need to find the perfect wedding package to orchestrate the big
day and make it the wedding of dreams. Atlantis, The Palm has a range of
unique Dubai wedding packages specially designed to ensure couples have a beautiful and
stress-free wedding. We offer three themed wedding packages to suit all tastes

wedding planning and décor, to catering and entertainment.

capture your style and personality while giving your wedding celebrations a
personal touch.

From our experience weddings aren’t just about the big day itself but also pre and post wedding events. What facilities do you have in the hotel for these?

The Atlantis wedding packages offer a 1-night
stay in a deluxe room inclusive of breakfast, with access to luxurious
honeymoon amenities, free entry to Aquaventure Waterpark & The Lost
Chambers Aquarium for the couple; photo opportunities in stunning backdrops
throughout the resort prior to the wedding; complimentary Mercedes or Audi
limousine drop off for the bride & groom only to the airport; and romantic
dinner for the bride and the groom for their first anniversary.

Atlantis is mainly so special because of the
ability for couples to combine exciting and unique activities and venues with
the traditions of a wedding ceremony. From a pre wedding dinner under the stars
on The Royal Beach to underwater yoga for the bridal party on the morning of
the wedding, there are hundreds of on-site options to ensure every moment of
the event is memorable. Many of the locations in the hotel are also available
for private hire for example Aquaventure Waterpark, Nobu, The Lost Chambers
aquarium and Wavehouse bowling have all been used for pre/post wedding party

Palm’s unique Signature Suites which prove to be the perfect location for
relaxing post wedding or for intimate venues for close family and friends .
