Anantara Downtown Dubai 

A smart city sanctuary

Whisk away to a city oasis in the heart of Dubai’s downtown area.

The architecture of Anantara Downtown casts a striking silhouette on the city skyline. While it may be smaller than some of Dubai’s mega-resorts, there are still three signature restaurants, a refreshing swimming pool and a soothing spa. For those wanting to shop up a storm in the Dubai Mall or ascend the mighty Burj Khalifa, the Anantara Downtown Dubai is a great spot to stay.

A sophisticated aesthetic betrays how child-friendly it is, with cupcake decorating classes, a special family brunch, a playroom, and children’s menus available.

Why we love Anantara Downtown Dubai

  • A downtown option within a ten-minute drive of Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall

  • Learn Thai culinary skills in the on-site cookery classes

  • A haven of calm and tranquillity in the downtown area with smart and elegant rooms

  • Cupcake classes and a playroom make this is a great option for little ones
