I really enjoyed my stay at the Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, with the perfect introduction being Kumar who took me to my room in a buggy and then helped me change rooms with no fuss. Highlights of my five-night stay: The staff are wonderful - big shout outs to Kumar, Satya in The Beach House and Maya in the Lotus Lounge. I wish that I could remember more of their colleagues' names. The bed was really comfortable and I loved having my private sun lounging area outside the Lagoon access room. Coffee machine with espresso cups was great too. A la carte food was excellent in both Mekong and The Beach House plus the chefs went out of their way to provide lovely vegetarian dishes for breakfast. The massage at the spa was amazing. Room for improvement: No dedicated GHA Discovery check-in area As others have said, towels, bedding and sun-loungers - especially the loungers on the beach - are in need of replacing/refreshing The hotel increases the price of drinks that it offers for its 2 for 1 Happy Hours! For example a small botle of Chang beer is 40 AED at the bars and restaurants while the 2 for 1 drinks menu prices the same bottle at 55 AED. While this is not huge in monetary terms - guests are not stupid. Also, I didn't like how the masseuse tried to sell products. Lastly, birds are often on the outside tables at Crescendo cafe and the staff at breakfast don't shoo them away. P.S it was also really useful to be able to take my Covid PCR test at the hotel before departing Dubai. Read less

We stayed at the Anantara with our family and friends. It was the most special time we had.

Special thanks and gratitude to Amir Awad for hosting us, Amin in housekeeping for super service, and Prakash at the pool bar. I recommend this hotel to all that want to be away from the city’s hustle and bustle, it’s very quiet and relaxing. Must visit restaurant Mekong, prior reservation required. Read less
