Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort brings an air of Siam-style sophistication to Dubai

Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort’s red-roofed, whitewashed villas bring an elegant Asian style to the UAE, with their subtle decadence and stylish details. Add uninterrupted views of the Arabian Gulf and the glistening Dubai skyline, and you’ve got yourself the perfect retreat.

Fusing age-old philosophies with the Middle East’s rich cultural traditions, Anantara offers Asian-inspired sanctuaries that seem a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort is no different.

From Turkish hammam rituals to revitalising scrubs, soothing wraps, illuminating facials and Ayurvedic treatments, the spa extends a warm invitation to all those who wish to experience the beauty of ancient therapeutic treatments from Asia and beyond, with its extensive menu of contemporary treatments that promise to soothe and pamper.

Try a 60-minute full-body massage for two (be it Swedish Massage, Arabian Massage, traditional Thai Massage or the Anantara Signature Massage), and prepare to feel completely refreshed.

After a moment of tranquil bliss, make your way back to your private over-water villa (they’re the first of their kind in the UAE) and enjoy a sneak peek into the wonders of the ocean through its glass viewing panels. Alternatively, you could opt for a Beach Pool Villa; not only are they sumptuously furnished, but the gentle lapping of the sea around you is a sound you’ll love waking up to. Meanwhile, the Lagoon Access Room is perfect for keen swimmers with steps leading straight into the tranquil lagoons that weave their way through the resort.

You’ll see small Thai boats crisscrossing the lagoon pools, from which staff hand out cold towels, fruit and water for a blissful treat in the Dubai sun.

With its pagoda-roofed swim-up bar and a crescent of sea-facing sun loungers, the main infinity pool takes centre stage with its lively ambience. While your kids splash away in their swimmies, laze by one of the swimming pools and bask in Dubai’s winter glow.
