The Atlantis Royal Towers was an expansion of the existing Coral tower hotel. The Royal Towers containing 2,400 rooms, included an iconic bridge suite which spanned the two towers. Sun International created the mythical city of Atlantis flanked by soaring towers that appear to have arisen from the sea.
More than $800 million was spent to bring to life the myth and legend of the lost city of Atlantis. The original scope and scale was planned to be the world’s largest open-air marine environment, home to 50,000 sea creatures representing 200 species; and to include new lagoons and countless waterfalls; a spectacular Mayan Temple Waterslide complex; 6 swimming areas and a $15 million Marina – itself an engineering marvel
