We stayed at the Anantara for 3 nights to celebrate my wife’s birthday and it couldn’t have been any better. We stayed in a Lagoon Access Villa which is a must if you stay here. It’s incredibly peaceful but still a very brief walk from both the beach and the restaurants. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a lovely sized shower and bathroom. There is a nice terrace with 2 sun beds and from that terrace is direct access to the beautiful lagoon. The beach area as well is large and well maintained. The service of the team is impeccable. Being a resident I secured an excellent B and B rate too. We will definitely come back. Brilliant Read less

I stayed at Anantara with my 6 years old son and enjoyed every minute of being there. We had a room with the direct access to the pool, which was the best choice for us. The pool is open 24\7. My son and I could just jump into the water whenever we wished. It was absolutely amazing to deep the feet into the pool in the evening and read a book in tropical surroundings with frangipani smell and singing birds. Our room and the bathroom were spacious and always clean. Although the air conditioner was a bit loud but we always slept well on our extra large double bed. The staff is friendly, quick and helpful. The service is exceptional. I was impressed by concierge, his organizational skills and ability to work under time pressure. He was very kind to rebook our flight as I decided to extend our holidays. The Covid test is perfectly organized as well. There is a representative of Rayna Tours at the hotel, who can help you to purchase tickets or organize tours for you. The water activities can be booked at the beach. The food for breakfasts and dinners at Crescendo was always fresh and delicious; the choice was great. Booking half board you can also go the Mekong and Bushman’s restaurants for dinners. Although the choice of dishes is limited for half board at the last 2 restaurants, however you can still order preferred dishes at additional charge. The Beach Restaurant is excellent for those who appreciate beautiful sunsets, but don’t expect real delicious Italian food there. The beach restaurant is perfect for families with small kids as you can let kids play at the beach while waiting for your food. Revo Café is a good alternativ to Crescendo. It is smaller place but nicely decorated and has a good atmosphere. I will definitely recommend this hotel and come here again. Read less

Beautifully located hotel with a real Thai atmosphere around. Amazing sunset beach restaurant with a guy playing on saxophone and stunning view... One of the best SPA’s in Dubai offering great couple treatments ❤️ Rooms smell a bit unpleasant at first but the smell is gone after the first day or so (probably there were out of use for some time and not very well ventilated). A small grocery is a plus, very handy especially for families. All the staff very friendly and helpful. Not many restaurants in the hotel itself but plenty of choice around in the neighborhood.
