The 293-room hotel will open in September as a five-star resort on the crescent of Dubai's iconic Palm Jumeirah, and is designed to reflect the brand’s Asian heritage and will bring Anantara’s brand of hospitality to the Dubai market.
An entertainment area will feature meeting rooms and a ballroom accommodating 300 delegates. The beach is also available for event hire.
The 12 Beach Villas, 18 Over Water Villas and three Royal Beach Villas will give the resort "an indulgent and exotic" feel.
Facilities will include a private beach, three natural lagoons, water sports, a shoreline infinity pool, an Anantara Spa with 12 treatment rooms, a fitness studio and two tennis courts.
Six themed restaurants and bars will also feature, including an all-day dining restaurant serving classic Middle Eastern and international cuisine, an Australian inspired grill, an Asian themed specialty restaurant, a beachfront Mediterranean restaurant, a lobby lounge with a dedicated shisha deck, and poolside refreshments.
William E. Heinecke, Chairman and CEO of Minor International, the owning company of Anantara, said: "This new resort strengthens our footprint in the key strategic market of the UAE and I am confident it will greatly contribute to our success there."
