“Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort will be the first hotel to open on this archipelago, offering guests a truly memorable escape just off the coast of Dubai’” says Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, the parent company of Anantara.
“Showcasing Anantara’s authentic luxury while maintaining a tropical island vibe, the resort is a unique proposition for this location. Guests will be able to experience the wonder of Dubai and the ambiance of an island sanctuary, all in this stunning new Anantara resort,” he continues.
Accessible via a short boat journey from the jetty at Anantara’s nearby flagship hotel, The Palm Dubai Resort, accommodation at the new resort will be made up of a selection of suites and villas. Each of the villas will feature a private pool and beach access which, combined with the on-site kids’ club, is set to position the World Islands resort as a family-orientated destination.

Elsewhere on the resort will be full gym facilities and multiple restaurants serving both local and international cuisine, as well a stylish bar lounge with panoramic views across the ocean to the iconic Dubai skyline.
Despite much speculation and online conspiracy surrounding the World Islands, the announcement of an all-new Anantara resort cements a more positive outlook for the once hopeless project. The group operates over 40 destinations around the world, each of which sets the standard for luxury hotels.
The group also has a firm commitment to sustainability, with an overriding aim of protecting and preserving both the communities and the natural environment in each of the areas in which they operate. To date, 36 of its 40 hotels have received a Green Growth certificate by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which is awarded based on a set of internationally recognized hotel-industry standards.
