The Only and Only Hotel on the Palm Island belongs to the Atlantis group. It sits on the very end of the West Crescent and provides an oasis of tranquility, a beautiful pool and garden and a lounge bar on the water with a marina.
2008 the doors of the Atlantis Hotel Dubai opened and one of the center pieces is the glass sculpture in The Grand Lobby constructed by Dale Chihuly. It took almost two years to make it. This was Dale Chihuly’s first installation in the Middle East – an almost 10m high blown glass sculpture filling half of the height of the lobby. Its composed by more than 3000 glass pieces, hand blown in Seattle, Washington and shipped to Dubai.
Some shots I took last weekend from the Western crescent of the Palm Island with a great view on Dubai Marina / JBR skyline and a beach club there which belongs to the O&O Mirage Hotel
