Minor Hotels will open its third Anantara property in Dubai on July 1.

Anantara Downtown Dubai will have 252 guest rooms and suites, all of which will offer views of Downtown Dubai, along with a wide variety of F&B options, a wellness floor with a spa, gym and swimming pool, and meeting and events spaces.

The hotel will be located close to the DIFC district and close to attractions including the Dubai Mall, the Burj Khalifa and the recently launched Museum of the Future.

According to the group, the hotel will introduce “exceptional experiences” over the coming months, with property enhancements commencing later this year.

Dillip Rajakarier, group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, commented:

“We are pleased to grow our strategic partnership with Aujan Group Holding to bring Minor Hotels’ luxury Anantara brand to the downtown area of Dubai. The continued expansion of Anantara into strategic global capitals including Abu Dhabi, Doha, Bangkok, Rome and Amsterdam is positioning the brand as a key player in urban hubs. The addition of Anantara Downtown Dubai is a testament to our ongoing efforts and we expect the property to become a landmark in the market.”

The opening will add to the brand’s existing portfolio of city hotels including Anantara Eastern Mangroves Hotel in Abu Dhabi, Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome Hotel, Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel and the recent opening of Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam.

Minor Hotels currently operates a total of eight properties in Dubai across its Anantara, Avani and Oaks brands including Anantara properties on The Palm and World Islands. It will debut its NH brand later this year with the launch of NH Dubai The Palm.

Minor Hotels has a portfolio of 529 hotels and resorts in 56 countries.
