Looking for an overwater experience but don’t want the hassle of catching a flight? Anantara The Palm is the only place to discover this unique style of accommodation in the UAE, a perfect escape for all the family to enjoy.


Located at the tip of Palm Jumeirah Anantara The Palm is an idyllic beachfront property combining a peaceful setting with skyline views of the city. The only way to stay is in the overwater one-bedroom villas, with direct access to the sea and close proximity to the beach, you can relax in true peace from sunrise to sunset.



The eighteen Over Water Villas stand out against the Dubai skyline. Reminiscent of those you would find in Thailand or the Maldives these unique accommodations will take you far away from your busy life. All of the villas feature an outside deck, perfect for sunbathing or watching the sun set over the ocean. Inside you’ll find a large Thai-style bedroom complete with living area. Each room comes with an oversized bathtub, state-of-the-art technology and glass floor panels so that you can view the local aquatic life beneath your feet.



If you want to discover more of the resort, take the short walk along the deck to the resort’s 400-metre beach which is both safe and peaceful, the perfect place to take the little ones. If you’re looking for more of an adventure take a scenic trip around Palm Jumeirah onboard the city’s first Thai long-tail boat. Admire the lush fronds and sea life off the Dubai coast and capture the magnificent cityscape from a unique perspective. View this marvellous feat of engineering as you glide across the calm waters. Trips operate from 10.15 am until 5.15 pm.



In the evening visit the Mekong to experience the vibrant tastes of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine. Sample traditional flavours and Eastern charm rickshaw-style seating or oriental tables, while the discreet private dining room is perfect for intimate celebrations.
