Travel Series : UAE - Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort and Spa

The busiest season of simultaneous exhibition is just about to end here in Dubai. Finally, a little rest for me and more of my online life. (I'm still visible elsewhere, I am almost close to search engine and hashtag friendly  already *wink*) Oh, and thanks to Mimie for taking my obligatory self portraits, hihi.

Working in the travel and leisure industry might be one of the most challenging yet rewarding job this country has to offer. The city has a lot of great places to show travelers and business investors.  I will admit I have started here small - don't bother asking about salary and benefits because for newbies like I am, it works that way. Start small. And I can't seem to stop my itchy feet - going places and meeting different people is something that interest me so I guess I just have to deal and growth with it.

My February has been sweet on the first 3 quarters, the latter seemed to be a little too messy. Alas, all I can do for now is to show you around Dubai and here you go.

One of the few hotels I have visited here in Dubai is Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa.

Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa is located on the East Crescent of Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah. This world famous landmark is located close to the Dubai Marina and only 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport. It consists of a trunk, a crown with 16 fronds and a surrounding crescent island that forms an 11-kilometre long breakwater.

The crown is connected to the mainland by a 300-metre long bridge and the crescent is connected to the top of the palm by a subsea tunnel.

The Accommodation has over 200 luxurious rooms and villas, each furnished in tasteful style and appointed with exceptional amenities.

For those seeking a truly special experience, the resort offers a choice of extraordinary villas, from the grandeur of a Beach Pool Villa with a personal infinity pool, to the unmatched comforts of 14 Over Water Villas with glass floors that afford direct views of the Arabian Gulf.

Large families and groups who desire a spacious haven can stay at the inviting Two-Bedroom Beach Pool Villa, the epitome of space and style.

I swear the floors of the Over Water Villas are like wow. It reminds me much of my island life back in Boracay.

Inserts my obligatory tourist shot here lol.

Anantara also has more than 5 restaurants - each of the restaurants, bars and lounges at the resort offers
you a unique experience enhanced by inspiring ambience, breathtaking views and spectacular cuisine

The Beach House - The Beach House is a relaxed beachside destination that offers fabulous experiences both indoors and out on the terrace. Enjoy a selection of Mediterranean cuisine, complemented by signature cocktails. Evenings see the outdoor terrace transform into a lounge with a chilled-out vibe, offering shisha and enhanced by the tunes of the resident DJ.

Mekong - The Asian restaurant at the resort, Mekong presents guests with a melange of Oriental cuisine and beverages. Embark on a journey of flavours, as you sample the delights of fabulous Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine on the spectacular ‘rickshaw-style’ seating or intimate round tables. The dining venue will be home to a tea bar that serves exquisite brews and infusions, as well as a discreet private dining room.

Too nice not to sit on it. Cute! 

Others were CrescendoBushman’s Australian Restaurant & BarThe Lotus Lounge, and Mai Bar.

These are just a few of what I took from the last time we were there for a site inspection. My personal space needs a serious updating.

Anyone who wants to show me around, let me know. ;)
