What? Another Atlantis hotel, near Shanghai Disneyland?! But there's no seashore to support it!
Found on http://www.ecns.cn/business/2014/01-20/97759.shtmlFosun International Ltd hopes to build an Atlantis brand hotel in Shanghai near the coming Disneyland, which would make it the first seven-star Atlantis luxury hotel in the city.
"We are in serious talks with Atlantis headquarters on the project," said Liang Xinjun, vice chairman and chief executive of Fosun, a Shanghai-based real estate and investment conglomerate.
Atlantis executives "are really interested in building it near Disneyland," Liang added.
Awesome! Even more Atlantis on the cards!

The resort had “always been on the cards”, he added, and said further Atlantis resorts were planned in future.
“We will expand further. There will be further developments of Atlantis resorts,” he said.
Source:In Sanya, on Hainan Island off China's southeast coast, Fosun is investing $1.5 billion in the world's third Atlantis hotel, following ones in Dubai and the Bahamas. The Atlantis Sanya will have an aquarium, 20 restaurants, and promises "revolutionary water play" in its water park. "We want to bring concepts that have proven to be successful globally to China," said Mr. Qian. "Chinese consumers are open-minded and welcome new ideas."
The Atlantis Sanya, scheduled to open in 2016, will have 1,300 guest rooms. It is hardly the biggest development for Hainan, which already has about 200 hotels with more on the way. Agile Property Holdings 3383.HK +0.11% and Morgan Stanley Real Estate are building six five-star hotels and a marina, and have already sold 10,000 apartments at Sanya's Clear Water Bay. The development will offer golf and water sports.
According to the website the Atlantis Resort in Sanya will have
•Restaurants by world-renowned chefs
•A vibrant range of bars and lounges
•Indulgent spas and luxury boutiques
•Extensive slides and rides at Aquaventure Waterpark
•Fresh and salt-water pools, lagoons and marine exhibits
•A dolphin interaction and education centre
•An interactive Atlantis Kids Club
•Magnificent event spaces and endless stretches of beach
Also on the Resort's website the Resort will be 62 hectares
Really ugly Atlantis that is. I hope they will revise the concept before it is too late!
