Anantara Officially Opens its First Resort in Dubai


Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas’ first Dubai property, Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa has officially opened on the iconic Palm Jumeirah.

Set amidst lush landscaping, 293 guest rooms and villas redefine urban beachfront accommodation, and are designed with tasteful luxury and stunning lagoon and palm views. Exclusive clusters of only four to eight guest rooms maximise privacy, and 130 of these rooms boast direct access to 10,000 square metres of lagoon pools. The resort offers the Middle East’s first Over Water Villas with most featuring glass viewing panels that reveal underwater glimpses of the Arabian Sea, in addition to Anantara Two Bedroom Beach Pool Villas for families and friends.

Lazy days can be enjoyed at Anantara’s 400 metre long private beach, as well as at three beautiful lagoon-inspired pools and a 50 metre shoreline infinity pool. Making the most of the exotic climate, the resort offers a variety of water sports includes kayaking, wake boarding and paddle boarding, as well as diving and snorkelling adventures. Two well equipped gyms and two tennis courts extend the choice of energising leisure pursuits. A teens club, Chill, and Tuk Tuk Kids Club keep younger guests happily entertained.

The Anantara Spa offers distinctive pampering, beauty and wellness journeys from 16 luxurious treatment suites. Indulge in the revitalising traditional Thai Massage or sample one of Anantara Spa’s other signature treatments, such as the indigenous Arabian Massage.

Six restaurants and bars serve a diversity of culinary experiences. Authentic Middle Eastern cuisine, such as hot and cold mezze, shish tawouk and um ali, and refined world flavours are accompanied by Australian-inspired flame-grilled delights, as well as speciality Asian and Mediterranean flavours.

Casual swim-up bar refreshments can be followed later in the day by charming tea rituals and cocktails on the shisha deck. Romance and special occasions are celebrated with signature Dining by Design journeys, complete with a private chef and butler. Guests can choose from a romantic table for two in a secluded spot on the beach, on the pontoon by the Over Water Villas, or a place of their preference within the resort.

The resort incorporates a host of fascinating Thai touches. Floating market boats glide across the lagoons serving tropical beverages. Three wheeler tuk-tuks transport guests around the resort and a traditional longtail boat provides trips to the marina and other key Dubai attractions. While infusing local culture, the resort lobby features a Dubai heritage corner, which showcases various indigenous artifacts and replicas of times gone by. Guests can soak up countless fascinating insights into the plentiful history of Dubai, such as its early pearl-diving heritage.

Exploring the rich culture and mystic of Dubai comes alive with the resort’s Anantara Experiences. Thrill-seekers can take an adrenaline-pumping dune safari, ending with a traditional Arabic banquet in a Bedouin-style desert camp. A visit to Dubai would be incomplete without a ride in the world’s fastest elevator to the top of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa. For those in search of history, exploring the ancient Al Fahidi Fort at Dubai Museum makes for an interesting afternoon, while a trip to Musandam off the Omani coast aboard a traditional dhow boat, followed by camping under the stars, provides a breathtaking escape.

Stylish indoor meeting and event venues with flexible layout options, as well as elegant outdoor spaces with magnificent views, cater for the needs of discerning business guests and inspired wedding celebrations.

Anantara is renowned for offering journeys rich with discovery in some of the world’s most exotic destinations, and Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa blends cultural elements from Anantara’s roots in Thailand with the international flair of the most cosmopolitan city in the United Arab Emirates.

Rooms start at AU$536 per room per night (inc. breakfast) for the Premier Lagoon View Room.
