Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has announced that its first hotel in Dubai, the Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa, is to open in September this year. Designed to reflect the brand’s Asian heritage, the new 5-star resort is located on the crescent of Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah.
Set amid lush landscaping, the new resort and spa will offer 293 guest rooms and suites clustered in units of four to eight to maximise privacy, with 130 guest rooms featuring direct access to 11,000 square metres of lagoon pools. The 12 Beach Villas, 18 Over Water Villas and three highly exclusive Royal Beach Villas will give the resort an indulgent and exotic feel.
Facilities will include a private beach, three natural lagoons, water sports, a shoreline infinity pool, an Anantara Spa with 12 treatment rooms, a fitness studio and two tennis courts. An entertainment area will be accompanied by meeting rooms with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment. A ballroom accommodating 300 people and the private beach will provide venues for events and weddings.
Six themed restaurants and bars include an all-day dining restaurant serving classic Middle Eastern and international cuisine, an Australian inspired grill, an Asian-themed specialty restaurant, a beachfront Mediterranean restaurant, a lobby lounge with a dedicated shisha deck, and poolside refreshments. For tailored private dining, Anantara’s signature ‘Dining by Design’ concept will invite guests to dine in a dream setting with a private chef and butler.
When it opens, Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa will complement Anantara’s three existing properties in Abu Dhabi – Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara, which is positioned in the world’s largest uninterrupted sand desert, Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara, located on Sir Bani Yas Island, and Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa in Abu Dhabi City.
