Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort will open in Dubai later this year

From Qasr Al Sarab Resort to Eastern Mangroves, the UAE isn’t short of enticing Anantara hotels lulling us in for a dream-worthy staycation. But proving that there’s always room for one more at the table, the beloved hotel group has announced a new addition to the Emirates; Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort.

Yes, that’s an entire island dedicated to the luxury offerings signature to Anantara, just a 15-minute boat journey from sister hotel Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort‘s jetty. Opening towards the end of 2021, the island resort promises sandy adventures, spa wellness facilities, accommodation with private pools, and even a kids club.

Guests will be greeted with accommodation consisting of 70 suites and villas. In the true style of the 2001-established hotel group, the villas will come complete with a private pool for guests to unwind within. Being an island resort, they’ll also be granted private beach access and of course their own outside dining space for a truly private escape.

And anyone who’s stayed in one of the hotelier’s 40-something properties around the world will know they’re synonymous with exquisite dining. While details of the dining outlets are yet to be uncovered, we do know that alongside several restaurants, there will be an elevated bar with views of the Dubai skyline featuring two of its most famous buildings – the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab.
