Dubai set for another innovative hotel

Yet another world-class hotel complex is set to open in Dubai later this year - and this one appears to be extra special.The Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort and Spa has been built on the crescent of the exclusive Palm Jumeirah and it will be the first establishment in the city to feature over-water villas.It will offer 18 stilted villas that offer unrivalled views across the bay, as well as 15 beachfront suites.The impressive 293-room facility is in the process of being handed over by building developers, who have been given a Building Completion Certificate by Trakhees - the government of Dubai's planning and development department.This is an important milestone and it highlights the fact the Thai-run hotel is on schedule to open in the third quarter of 2013.Bosses at Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas are extremely excited about the company's first foray into Dubai and they are confident the five-star complex will be a huge hit.The firm already has three resorts in nearby Abu Dhabi, so it knows what it takes to be a success in the Middle East."When it opens, Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa will be a great complement to Anantara's three existing properties in Abu Dhabi," a recent statement from the organisation read."Impressive facilities will include a private beach, three natural lagoons, water sports, a shoreline infinity pool, an Anantara Spa with 12 treatment rooms, a fitness studio and two tennis courts," it added.Of course, Dubai is certainly not short of luxurious five-star hotels and a number of wonderful new developments are set to launch in 2013.Movenpick Hotels & Resorts recently unveiled its latest offering in the Al Mamzar area of Deira - Dubai's historical centre.The organisation revealed that its Dubai assets have been performing incredibly well of late, as its four other hotels in the city recorded occupancy rates of 86 per cent in 2012.With millions of tourists expected to visit the emirate in 2013, hotels throughout Dubai are likely to be extremely busy over the next 12 months.
