The Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa is a five star resort on the crescent of Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah, and will open in September 2013.
Partnering with Dubai-based owning company Seven Tides, the progressive hospitality and real estate developer, the luxurious new property is designed to reflect the brand’s Asian heritage and will bring Anantara’s experience and discovery-lead hospitality to the vibrant and continually expanding Dubai market.
Set amidst lush landscaping, the new resort and spa will offer a total of 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 give the resort an indulgent and exotic feel. Impressive facilities will include a private beach, three natural lagoons, water sports, a shoreline infinity pool, an Anantara Spa sanctuary with 12 treatment rooms, a fitness studio and two tennis courts. An elaborate 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 inspirational 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 the ultimate in 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 be a great complement to 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. The new resort promotes the brand’s distinctive reputation for luxury discovery in the region, and also creates a landmark presence with such a strategic base in Dubai.
