The lobby’s centrepiece is a 33' high sculpture with over 3,000 pieces of hand blown glass said to have taken almost two years to create. It is surrounded by a reflection pool. This is Dale Chihuly’s first installation in the Middle East. Surrounding it are eight architectural sea snake columns. The ceilings feature eight handpainted murals by Spanish Artist AlbinoGonzalez telling the story of the ancient mythological city of Atlantis. He is one of the world's foremost interpreters of ancient mythology.
Considering the story of Atlantis was originally told by Plato, the murals in the resort are layered with paint, history and fantasy.
