We welcomed 2013 with 20,000 of our closest friends at a number of spectacular parties on New Year’s Eve.
London pop princess Rita Ora, singer-songwriter Ellie Golding and DJs Paul Van Dyk, Roger Sanchez and Zane Lowe rocked Sandance as the sun set and revelers partied well into the New Year, enjoying spectacular views of the Atlantis fireworks.
Gala Dinner Under The Stars
Those who favoured a touch of glamour enjoyed the spectacular Gala Dinner Under The Stars at Asateer, with a delicious selection of gourmet live cooking stations and culinary treats from across the globe. Highlights included the seafood raw bar, tapas bar, carving stations, giant ice sculpture, huge dessert towers and a stunning 24 piece band.
The Atlantis restaurants celebrated New Year with ‘Gold’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Bronze’ set menu packages. Each restaurant became a hub of fun as the festive spirit spread between the guests. After enjoying the spectacular fireworks, guests spent time ringing in the New Year.
At midnight the sky lit up with fireworks, spelling out the word ATLANTIS to our guests below. This was the first time this etching technique has ever been done in The Middle East and it looked amazing!
We hope to celebrate with you next year!
