Weekend Getaway
Location, Staff, Room
I just spent 3 days at Anantara Al Yamm resort with my wife. The resort is great both for couples or families looking to relax a few days away from the city. The rooms are big and very cosy, the staff is very helpful, always smiling and doing their best to make you confortable. The only negative is the price of the activities and restaurants, they are a little expensive. However, the fact that the activities take all place within the wildlife reserve explains the prices and we were happy to pay a little more to allow for this beautiful reserve to prosper. All in all a great experience which I definitely recommend.

surreal adventure
safari, staff friendliness, view of the ocean/mangfroves
It was a weekend getaway and for that it was satisfactory. The hotel itself is not decorated well and the restaurant menu is VERY limited. To get anything else you have to be driven to one of the other two hotels, at least ten minutes away. Glad we did it once. Will not return.

Beach Bliss
Quiet, food and friendly service
Very pleasant but we felt more frequent shuttle services should be available to be able to visit the other hotel facilities during the daytime.

A wonderful, relaxing stay
The location, the room, the staff....plus plus plus
We went there for a night away from Dubai. Although it took 3 hours to get to the jetty, we took an early water taxi (10am)over and got a late check out the next day, so maximised our time and made it worth the drive. The villas were lovely, cosy and comfortable and we had our own little patio facing the mangroves with the beach in the background. The restaurant and pool were nice and right on the beach - it was quiet and peaceful and perfect for a relaxing weekend away. The staff were amazing, friendly, helpful and I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a break from people and/or Dubai!
