Dubai’s World Islands’ Anantara resort to open this December

Seven Tides will launch the new Anantara-managed resort on 18 December

Dubai-based developer Seven Tides will open its five-star Anantara resort on World Islands, an archipelago of 300 man-made islands 4km off the coast of Dubai, on 18 December 2021.

Located on Clarence Island, the five-star Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort will feature a 2,000-square-metre private beach.

Speaking about the launch, Seven Tides CEO Abdulla Bin Sulayem said: “The Anantara hotel on Clarence Island will set the bar for exclusivity and a luxury lifestyle, while remaining in harmony with nature. Without a doubt, this will become one of the most sought-after leisure and lifestyle destinations in the Middle East, if not the world.

“Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort is unique. It will offer genuine island tranquillity despite its close proximity to major retail destinations, gourmet restaurants, golf courses and the emirate’s lively nightlife.” 


Only accessible by boat, and just a 10-minute ride from Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, the project comprises 70 rooms, suites and villas. Guests will be able to choose from rooms and suites with ocean views and beach access, and villas with private pools.

Facilities include a fully equipped gym, an Anantara signature spa and a main pool in addition to the private infinity pools at villas.

Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort will also feature a casual lobby café bar Grand House; all-day Mediterranean-style al fresco restaurant Helios; and Luna, a cocktail bar with views of the Dubai skyline.

Seven Tides operations director Ghanim Bin Sulayem added: “Work on the island is advancing incredibly quickly, supported by the ingenuity of the engineering team who have made the project a possibility. Creating an island resort does not come without its challenges, however, thanks to the expertise of all involved, we look forward to showcasing this unique development in December when we officially open to the public.”
