Review of Anantara Dubai

Posted By Hazel Maundrell on 16 June 2014

Compared to the gigantic resort of Atlantis which felt like a bewildering Disney Hotel/motorway service station Anantara on the east side of the Palm gave me the same feeling as leaving the bustle of London for a weekend in the Cotswolds!  Anantara is a very reputable brand in the Far East and this was totally reflected in its design of this Anantara the Palm.  The “shock” at low rise accommodation and their unique (to Dubai) water villas was refreshingly overwhelming – I loved it!  I closed my eyes.... white sandy beach, lagoon access rooms on the ground floor and the water villas all with a very zen feel.

Behind the front rooms and villas there are two more high rise “Residences” mostly all occupied but the hotel has an allocation of one, two and three bedroom apartments which are absolutely super family accommodation.

These have a big fully equipped kitchen, a sitting room with dining table and a separate cloakroom.  Absolutely ideal for families with the benefit of the resort facilities.

Do remember that taxis are really inexpensive in Dubai should you wish to visit some of the other restaurants or bars on the Palm.

Anantara has a Tuk Tuk children’s club with activities for 4 to 19 years, broken down into three age categories 4-7, 8-12 and Chill Teens Club 13-19 years.  The children’s club was bright and airy with a tiny, fenced pool.  I also loved the fact that the lagoon had a sandy access paddling area to it.

Of course the super beach is a major plus of this resort, when I went in the sea it was like a bath and there were kayaks to play with.

I would describe this resort as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of Dubai with a Far East feel!
