PIC­TURE THIS

Up your In­sta­gram game at Anan­tara The Palm Dubai Re­sort

Condé Nast Traveller Middle East - - Hot Neighbourhoods -

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.
