The Atlantis, The Palm has announced that its Ramadan tent Asateer is to be made a permanent feature of the resort.
The venue, which hosted over 37,000 guests during the holy month, will now as a “premier” private function venue for events such as weddings, fashion shows and product launches.
Serge Zaalof, Chief Operating Officer for Atlantis, The Palm described Asateer as a “perfect venue for holding large scale events with a sea view and beach setting.”
Featured in the September issue of Sound & Stage, the venue took 300 workers eight 8 weeks to build and covers an area of over 2,625 sq metres. It has an independent entrance from Atlantis and a private parking area for over 500 vehicles including a helicopter landing pad. Marble flooring and water features dominate the entrance and hint at the luxury within that includes custom-designed chandeliers, intimate table settings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The internal space can be customised to suit client requirements or tastes.
Asateer already has a booking for a wedding this November. Fizah Pasha, the future bride commented, “Asateer provides the grandeur of a ballroom, but what makes it unique is the backdrop-the Dubai skyline. The chandelier lights in Asateer along with the entrance way make it all the more exquisite.”
She added, “I can’t wait for my guests to walk in through that entrance and be swept away by the interior set against that beautiful backdrop.”
