Anantara to Open First Resort in Dubai


It seems we cannot compete with the chatter coming out of Dubai as of late. We just received word of yet another luxury property that will be gracing the Arabian Gulf's shores. Anantara Hotel, Resorts & Spas will be opening its first hotel in Dubai - Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa, to open in September.

The five-star resort will sit on the crescent of Dubai's iconic Palm Jumeirah. The new resort will offer 293 guest rooms and suites clustered in units of four to eight, with 130 guest rooms featuring direct access to a dizzying 120,000 square feet of lagoon pools.

The 12 Beach Villas, 18 Over Water Villas and three (highly exclusive) Royal Beach Villas put this resort over the top. 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.
