Combine a love of food and travel at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort where bespoke dining experiences and summer savings make it a trip to remember
In his Meditations on Gastronomy, philosopher Jean Brillat-Savarin boldly said, “The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of the human race than the discovery of a star.” With cutlery in place of a telescope, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort promises to put a smile on your face with its delicious line-up of memorable dining experiences.
Famous for its over-water villas, this luxurious resort occupies a premium spot on the East Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, delivering an idyllic beach experience that’s within easy reach of the bright lights of the big city. Currently, you can save up to 30% on a One Bedroom Over Water Villa or a One Bedroom Beach Pool Villa, complete with a daily buffet breakfast for two. Once you’ve found your feet, let the culinary team whisk you off on a gastronomic journey like no other. At the top of the wish list is the bespoke Dining by Design experience, which takes place on a secluded slice of sand, offering a curated collection of menus to pick from. Or, for a true taste of culinary extravagance, you can collaborate with a personal chef to tailor a fine feast that ticks all the boxes. Candles set the mood for this exclusive romantic meal for two while the sea laps the shore, providing the ultimate tranquil soundtrack. A butler is on hand during the meal to tend to any request you may have.
After a day swimming in lagoon, or unwinding at your private pool, perhaps you’re in the mood for a lighter evening meal? Anantara’s Sunset Dining experience allows just that. Relish the handpicked selection of Mediterranean antipasti, including international cured meats and fine cheeses, as the amber and golden hues of the sunset provide a blissful ambience. It’s priced at Dhs600 per couple for antipasti, dessert and a bottle of grape.
Those with exotic tastes can immerse themselves in Anantara’s Thai heritage by taking a cooking class at Spice Spoons. This richly interactive, step-by-step cooking experience will teach you how to make an array of authentic Thai dishes. Not only can you enjoy your creations for lunch, but you can take your new skill back home with you as a lasting memory of your holiday.
Once your appetite is satisfied, you can round off your trip by trying some of the non-foodie experiences on offer. Watersports abound with waterskiing, kayaking and wakeboarding fit for thrillseekers. Those seeking a more serene experience out at sea can try paddle boarding or fishing. If you’re in the mood to be pampered, you can indulge with a traditional hammam or a tension-busting massage. However you prefer to spend your down time, this tropical paradise is a magnet for all those with good taste.
