Up your Instagram game at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort
OOn the iconic Palm Jumeirah, Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort is perfectly positioned for Insta-worthy @anantaradubai moments just waiting to be captured. Laying claim to the UAE’s sole overwater villas, the resort has views like no other – watch your followers go wide-eyed as photographs from your stay fill your feed. To capture your villa against the sunset, head across to the Beach House restaurant where a laidback vibe greets you for the ideal photo op.
Show off drinks brought to your doorstep by the Kayak Guru, a mixologist in a canoe who paddles through the three lagoon pools surrounding the hotel. In the morning, take the perfect “I woke up like this” selfie with the pool just steps away from your Lagoon Access room. While boat trips around the Palm offer plenty of Instagrammable sights, hop aboard Dubai’s only Thai longtail boat for a cruise where the vessel is as picturesque as the view.
At dinner, take a seat at Mekong’s rickshaw tables on the terrace, snapping them along with the vibrant décor that’s bound to bring life to your feed. Alongside Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese fare, Mekong serves an “Angry Bird” cocktail in an ornamental bird cage that simply must be shared. Finally, get a few shots of the marbled Turkish hammam before being whisked away to a state of peace and serenity at the Anantara Spa.
From stunning vistas to Instagram-ready cuisine, this resort was made to be shared.
