There has been a lot of speculation around what hotels might open on the World Islands - news is now out regarding the first one to expect. Luxury hospitality developer Seven Tides will open the first resort on The World Islands this December 18th.
Situated on Clarence Island, the five-star Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort will feature its own stunning 2,000 square metre private beach. The resort’s 142,000sqm host island is itself located within the South American continent of the World Islands development - a remarkable offshore archipelago of 300 man-made isles, just four kilometres from the coast of Dubai.
Accessible exclusively by boat, just a 10-minute ride from Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, the development will feature a gymnasium and a guest pool, as well as a series of private infinity pools for the exclusive use of those staying in villas.
Food lovers will be able to choose from the resort’s five restaurants and bars, which will offer everything from fine dining to chilled-out eats. Guests who visit Indo-Arabian venue Qamar, for example, will enjoy a stunning sea view while dining beneath either chandeliers or the stars. Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort will also feature a casual lobby café bar, Grand House; an all-day Mediterranean-style al fresco restaurant, Helios; and a cocktail bar for stargazers affording panoramic views of the Dubai skyline, appropriately named Luna.
