We have just returned from a five day holiday in Dubai and stayed in the Anantara hotel on the Palm. I never write reviews but this is the best hotel by a mile we have every stayed in. We had a fantastic time and the staff at the hotel are very very good, friendly and polite. I can't speak highly enough about our experience at the hotel and did not have a single complaint or gripe the whole holiday. A superb hotel in a superb location.
When you arrive you have staff waiting to open your door and assist you with your belongings. They take your luggage right away and give you a tag so your things can be brought up to your room. The hotel is breathtaking, so beautiful!! The staff are so warm and inviting, they truly want you to feel comfortable. When we opened the door to our room I was extremely satisfied! The room was so big and beautiful. The room furnishings were gorgeous, and the balcony was huge, i just couldn't stop smiling, SCORE! This hotel is one of expedias VIP plus hotels, meaning, they offer you upgrades during your stay. So,I called the front desk and was told that they were booked for the next few days and couldn't accommodate me. Upon talking with the manager, he apologized and offered me complimentary access to their Gold Executive lounge. The next morning i was blown away; The gold lounge offers you breakfast, wifi, tea time, Happy hour, and your personal butler and concierge, the staff there was so amazing. They really made our stay very comfortable. They found out it was our anniversary and the next day we came back to our room to find a bed full of rose petal spelled out 10 anniversary, with a bottle of sparkling date juice, a beautiful collection of fruit and chocolate dipped palmiers. I was so blown away by the service, it really just pushed my vacation over the edge!
