Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas’ first Dubai property, Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa is a luxurious, uniquely Thai inspired beach resort, prestigiously located 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 Anantara Two Bedroom Beach Pool Villas for families and friends, in addition to the Middle East’s first Over Water Villas with most featuring glass viewing panels that reveal underwater glimpses of the Arabian Sea.
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, 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 riveting 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, 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 such as floating market boats gliding across the lagoons serving tropical beverages and three wheeler tuk-tuks transporting guests around the resort. 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 in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world.
For hundreds of years throughout Thailand, people would leave a jar of water outside their house to provide refreshment and extend a welcome to the passing traveller. Anantara is taken from an ancient Sanskrit word that means 'without end', symbolising this sharing of water and the heartfelt hospitality that lies at the core of every Anantara experience.
From lush jungles to pristine beaches and legendary deserts to cosmopolitan cities, Anantara currently boasts 24 stunning properties located in Thailand, the Maldives, Bali, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates and China; with future properties to open in Thailand, China, Cambodia, Laos, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, UAE, Oman, Qatar and Mozambique.
