The Thai-inspired hotel brand Anantara is known for its chilled-out spa retreat vibe with its high-end luxury and decor. However, this month, it’s all about the food, fun and sun at their Palm Jumeirah venue with an enticing selection of dining deals and sun-soaked fun – plus their very first Culinary Week. 


A week of dining at Culinary Week

Take a week off cooking and feast it up with some five-star dining at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort’s very first Culinary Week. Enjoy three courses at your choice of three signature venues, from April 22 to 30, for just Dh249. Mekong will transport you visually and gastronomically to Asia with rickshaw-style tables and authentic Asian dishes. For a contemporary vibe, Beach House offers Mediterranean fare, cocktails, city views and a DJ later in the evening. For die-hard meat-lovers, Bushman’s Restaurant and Bar is the place – an Australian menu and atmosphere make for a relaxed evening out.

April 22 to 30, 6pm to 11.30pm

Dhs249 for a starter, a main course and a dessert


Dine and Unwind
at Crescendo and Anantara Spa

We don’t need an excuse to make the most of this deal – a spa treatment, day pass to the facilities plus lunch or dinner at Crescendo with unlimited soft drinks, juices and water. Erm, where do we sign up? The only difficulty will be choosing between the three spa treatments on offer – Traditional Turkish Hammam, Arabian Massage or the Anantara Signature Massage. But, seeing as the offer runs to the end of the year, there is more than enough time to try all three.

Dhs599 per person, Saturdays to Thursdays. Tel: (04) 5678304
