Anantara opens on Dubai’s World Islands

Luxury boutique resort on a trendsetting destination in Dubai


Anantara has opened the first luxury resort on Dubai’s World Islands archipelago. Located in the Arabian Gulf, approximately four kilometers off the coast of Dubai, the new island resort is the first hotel on the South American continent of the development and offers guests a new luxury destination in Dubai and a unique perspective on the city.

Guests can opt for views of the iconic cityscape, including the famous landmarks of Burj Khalifa and Burj al Arab, or a combination of island and sea views. The resort is accessible by a 15-minute luxury speedboat ride from the jetty at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.

Anantara World Islands has a selection of accommodation options across 70 suites, beach, and pool villas – all with a balcony, deck, or terrace. The 40 private pool villas have an outdoor dining area and direct access to the beach, with the two- and four-bedroom pool villas offering the ability to accommodate up to eight and 12 guests, respectively.

This is the only hotel in Dubai where guests can relax on their own luxurious HamacLand, a unique floating lounge with hammocks and VIP food and drink service for guests

More than 4,000 plants, including over 1,000 coconut palms, have been planted in the resort on the beachfront and throughout the landscaped gardens, attracting rich birdlife. A family of peacocks also calls the resort home. A large on-site greenhouse grows hydroponic and organic fruit and vegetables.
