The new 293-room Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa welcomed its first guests on Sunday 15th September, bringing the number of Anantara resorts in the UAE to five.

Designed in Thai style, the new resort has tuk-tuks to transport guests around the resort and floating market-style boats gliding across the lagoon pools serving cocktails, while the resort lobby features a Dubai heritage corner showcasing indigenous artifacts.

There are four existing Anantara properties in Abu Dhabi and a further two will be added to the portfolio in the region by early 2014, including the first property in Qatar.

Dillip Rajakarier, Chief Executive of Minor Hotel Group, said: “We are very excited to open our first Anantara in Dubai, a key strategic location for the brand. This is the fourth addition to Anantara’s portfolio so far this year, with a further three properties to be added before the end of the year, including in two new countries, Cambodia and Mozambique. We are especially excited about our continued expansion in the Middle East region, which is a key area of focus both for Anantara and other brands within Minor Hotel Group.”
