A tiny corner of Thailand can be found a lot closer to home than you think, in fact only an approximate 7 hours flying time away – at the Anantara The Palm, Dubai. Amazing Thai hospitality greets you as soon as you arrive, only around a 45 minute private transfer from Dubai International Airport, and warming and smiling Thai greeting awaits.
Designed with true Asian flair, Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa offers enchanting beach side accommodation, complemented by cuisine from Asia, the Mediterranean as well as Australia served at four speciality venues. Unwind in one of three turquoise swimming lagoons, enjoy a session at the tennis courts or gyms, or indulge yourself with a choice of treatments at Anantara Spa. The resort also had a kids club and teens club, all adding to the splendour of this idyllic beach side resort destination on the Palm in Dubai.
The Anatara boasts some splendid accommodation choices, whilst Nick stayed in an a Premier Lagoon Access room, he would highly recommend some of the only over water villas in the UAE and the One Bedroom pool villas.
Premier Lagoon Access Room
Enjoy a refreshing start to your day as you step into the surrounding lagoon pool from your Premier Lagoon Access Room. Then retreat to your private terrace to relax with a book, or gaze at the idyllic scenery while sipping a signature cocktail served pool side from the floating mixologist. After a leisurely day by the pool, indulge in the luxurious comforts of the spacious 47 square metre Premier Lagoon Access Rooms, each one featuring thoughtfully designed stylish furnishings, cool parquet floors and a plush king size bed.
One Bedroom Beach Pool Villa
Tranquil retreats perched along the shoreline of the Arabian Gulf, the One Bedroom Beach Pool Villas offer the dual advantages of both a private pool and uninterrupted access to the ocean. Enjoy a lavish breakfast served in the comfort of your villa, take a refreshing dip in the private infinity pool or stroll over to the sandy shore and spend your day soaking up the sun. As the sun sets and the city lights illuminate the seascape, unwind on the terrace with a sundowner. Inside, these stylish 85 square metre villas feature exotic, Asian inspired interior décor, rich earthy colours and elegant accents. In addition to the premium service and amenities, a personal villa host will be on hand round the clock, to make every desire a reality.
One Bedroom Overwater Villa
Leave the world behind and step into a picturesque villa gracefully poised over the tranquil waters of the Arabian Gulf. Envelop yourself in the sky’s azure hues and gentle breeze in the privacy of an Over Water Villa, the first of its kind in the Middle East.
Spanning a generous 106 square metres, these villas are the epitome of luxury. Watch as the sun sets over the horizon while you enjoy a private dining experience on the villa deck or unwind in the oversized bathtub while gazing out over the endless panorama. A select number of Over Water Villas also feature a unique glass viewing panel set in the floor, offering new perspectives into the world beneath the ocean.
Taking the guest experience to the next level are the personal villa hosts, who are ready to accommodate any special request and fulfil every desire.
At present the villas do not allow direct access to the sea, however we understand this is changing shortly – so do ask us about any up-dates that we may have.
Nick had the opportuinty to dine at Mekong – Offering a unique dimension of Asian flavours and charm, Anantara’s specialty restaurant Mekong evokes a feeling of the Far East with a melange of traditional Oriental ingredients. Indulge in a feast for the senses, as you sample the delights of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine on the spectacular ‘rickshaw-style’ seating or intimate round tables. Mekong also caters to tea connoisseurs with an exceptional array of exquisite brews and infusions at its signature Tea Bar, while the discreet private dining room is perfect for intimate celebrations.
Other dining options within the resort include: – Crescendo – a delightful restaurant offering international cuisine within a dazzling setting. – Bushman’s Australiant Restaurant – for a real hearty meal that reflects the outdoors, and finally The Beach House in its relaxed beach side setting taking in views of the Dubai shoreline, whilst enjoying a signature cocktail, seafood, tapas and pizza.
