Dubai’s New Digs

Dubai’s got a new venue with the recent opening of the region’s newest luxury resort – Atlantis, The Palm.

The 1,539-room resort, located at the center of the man-made Palm Jumeirah island on the coast of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, features a conference center, water theme park, restuarants, nightclubs and shopping.

Kylie Minogue was expected to make her debut in the region Nov. 20 during the resort’s grand opening beach party celebration.

Other grand opening festivities include a performance by Arab artist Nawal Al Zoghbi, fireworks and a late-night afterparty featuring DJ Samantha Ronson.
