Luxury hospitality developer Seven Tides will open the first resort on The World Islands in Dubai on December 18.

The five-star Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort is situated on Clarence Island within the South American continent of the World Islands development – a remarkable offshore archipelago of 300 man-made isles, just 4km from the coast of Dubai.

It features 70 rooms, suites and villas, which combine island living with contemporary luxury. Guests can choose from rooms and suites with ocean views and beach access, while spacious villas with private pools are also available.

Accessible exclusively by boat, just a 10-minute ride from Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, the development boasts its own private beach, plus a gymnasium, Anantara signature spa, and a guest pool, as well as a series of private infinity pools for the exclusive use of those staying in villas.

Food lovers can choose from the resort’s five restaurants and bars, offering everything from fine dining to chilled-out eats.

Guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy yoga classes, water sports and the Tuk Tuk Kids’ Club.
