Luxury hospitality brand Anantara has been in operation for 20 years, ever since opening its first property in the seaside town of Hua Hin in Thailand. Now, it boasts a refined selection of hotels and resorts in exciting destinations across Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East and Europe. Modern travellers enjoy heartfelt hospitality and authentic luxury in mountain retreats, desert hideaways and stunning beachfront escapes.
Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort was the brand’s first property in the emirate, opening in 2013. It has become a favourite for those escaping the city, as well as international travellers who wish to connect with the destination. It is one of the leading properties on Palm Jumeirah and continues to take measures to stay ahead of the market.
As the global pandemic has impacted travel, Anantara The Palm Dubai is using the time to invest and upgrade the property. The hotel rooms have new 55-inch Chromecast Smart TVs added, with the latest technology. A new highly efficient air conditioning system is installed, and guests can control energy through their room management system. Also, we are upgrading the rooms with new furniture to create a comfort space for our valued guests.
Enhancements are also taking place at the dining establishments of the resort. A new Thai-inspired bar is being added at the award-winning Asian restaurant, Mekong, so guests can enjoy a beverage with a sensational view of the Dubai skyline before they dine.
The popular all-day dining venue, Crescendo will be closed from June until July to receive a total refresh, courtesy of Broadway Interiors design company. Broadway have been selected to redesign the restaurant and provide renovation. The fabulous Fork & Cork Friday Brunch will relaunch in August following the reopening of Crescendo.
Committed to Sustainability
Anantara The Palm Dubai has a firm plan in place for sustainable growth. While maintaining steady growth and profitability, the resort aims to reduce its overall environmental impact.
To this end, eco-friendly glass bottles are being introduced and all plastic bottles will be removed from the hotel by July. Guests will be provided with a recyclable glass bottle and can receive purified water through the water bottling system. This initiative will save at least 1,048,320 plastic bottles being consumed each year at Anantara The Palm Dubai.
The team focus on critical areas from supply chain to food waste to ensure that sustainability objectives are met. This forms the basis for stable, lasting success throughout the resort and maintaining their Platinum status of ‘Green Growth 2050’.
Providing Peace of Mind
New regulations have been introduced to deal with COVID-19 and keep visitors safe. Anantara The Palm Dubai has brought in a variety of new measures, including partitioned check in desks, an in-room hygiene pack, sanitiser in all public places, as well as extra deep cleaning. Staff and guests have their temperature monitored and QR codes are used in the restaurants to reduce contact between guests and team members.
The resort is not only adhering to all governmental and health guidelines, but has gone beyond this to provide guests with the utmost care throughout their stay.
Anantara The Palm Dubai is visible across all major platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, keeping in touch with customers via social media. Many updates have been made to ensure the user experience is easy for guests and a new application is under development. It is hoped to launch the new mobile app by August to ensure a more seamless process for travellers.
The team at Anantara The Palm Dubai is confident that they can maintain their position as one of the leading Palm Jumeirah resorts. Here at Anantara, we listen to our customers and work hard to achieve a very high guest satisfaction. We do everything we can to make them feel comfortable and ensure that they can connect with the destination in their own way by enabling adventures and indulgence.
Our Owners ‘Seven Tides” are committed to maintaining our position as a leading Resort on the Palm and are investing back into the rooms product to ensure our product will compete with the influx of new inventory joining us on the Palm later this year. The investment that we put back into the hotel is all about making our customers happy and staying on track with our sustainability goals. This means we can deliver the most seamless holiday experience possible, while also making a positive impact.
