Anantara World Islands is a luxurious resort that provides couples and romantic partners with the perfect staycation experience. Situated on a private island, the resort offers a serene and tranquil environment that is ideal for couples looking to rekindle their love or simply spend some quality time together. Moreover, this island serves as an exceptional and unique wedding venue destination. Read on to discover more.
The Anantara world islands is located on one of the islands within The World Islands archipelago, so transportation is necessary to reach the resort. Typically, the resort offers complimentary boat transfers to and from the island. The boat we took was quite basic, and it was HOT (No aircon), but we did visit during summer, if you visit too, make sure you bring a fan along, because it gets sweaty.
It’s a short and sweet ride though and took us only 15 minutes to reach the venue, with great views of the Dubai skyline in the distance..
One of the standout features of Anantara World Islands is its architecture. The resort is designed to resemble a traditional Thai village, with beautiful thatched-roof buildings, wooden walkways, and lush tropical gardens. This design creates an exotic and romantic setting that is perfect for couples.
We were welcomed with cool drinks and cold towels, and the checkin process was quick and easy. The resort offers a range of accommodation options to suit different needs and budgets. Couples can choose from luxurious villas with private pools, beachfront suites, or overwater bungalows. Each of these options is beautifully designed and equipped with modern amenities to ensure maximum comfort and convenience. We were lucky enough to experience one of the private villas, with a pool and view of the beach/ocean.
Couples can also enjoy a range of activities during their stay at Anantara World Islands. The resort has a private beach where couples can lounge and soak up the sun. There are also several swimming pools, including a beautiful infinity pool that offers stunning views of the surrounding ocean.
For couples who enjoy water sports, the resort offers a range of activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, and snorkelling. Couples can also take romantic sunset cruises, go on a private island-hopping tour or watch a movie undert the stars when the weather is good.
The resort has several dining options that cater to different tastes and preferences. There are several restaurants serving a variety of cuisine, including Thai, Mediterranean, and international dishes. We got to experience a romantic dinner on the beach, complete with candlelight, florals and a private chef. Be warned though, portions are huge, so make sure you are hungry if you try this option.
The resort also has the most gorgeous large stone heart monument, where couples or the bride, can have stunning photo’s taken (see below).
For couples looking to relax and unwind, Anantara World Islands offers a range of spa treatments. The resort’s spa is set in a beautiful tropical garden and offers a range of massages, body treatments, and facials.
We got to experience the signature, Lomi Lomi massage at Anantara Spa, a treatment which combines traditional Hawaiian techniques with modern spa luxury. This massage is designed to relax the body and nourish the spirit, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Lomi Lomi massage is performed with long, flowing strokes using the forearms, hands, and elbows. The therapist uses rhythmic movements and deep pressure to release tension in the muscles and promote relaxation. The massage also includes stretches and joint rotations that help to increase flexibility and range of motion.
What sets the Lomi Lomi massage apart from other types of massage is its focus on the spiritual and emotional aspects of the body. The massage is based on the Hawaiian philosophy of “Huna,” which emphasizes the connection between the body, mind, and spirit. The therapist uses this philosophy to create a holistic experience that promotes healing for the entire being.
The atmosphere at Anantara Spa is designed to enhance the Lomi Lomi massage experience. The spa is set in a tranquil and serene environment, with soft lighting, soothing music, and the fragrant aroma of essential oils. The treatment room is spacious and comfortable, with a heated massage table that adds to the overall sense of relaxation.
The Lomi Lomi massage is a full-body treatment that lasts for 90 minutes. During this time, the therapist works on each part of the body, including the back, arms, legs, and feet. The massage is gentle yet firm, and the therapist uses different techniques to address areas of tension and promote relaxation.
After the massage, you are encouraged to take some time to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Anantara Spa offers a relaxation area where you can unwind and enjoy a cup of tea or other refreshments.
