This prestigious resort was conceptualized to take on the appearance of a traditional Arabic coastal town with a contemporary flair. The resort was strategically positioned within the Al Houara Coastal Golf estate to maximize coastal and golf course views while establishing a very exclusive and private guest experience. This 150 key Anantara Hotel Resort was designed to incorporate sixty-one Serviced Apartments divided into a mix of one, two and three Bedroom units – all sea facing. Exclusive two and three-bedroom Luxury Villas were also specifically positioned on the estate to allow for eight Golf Course View Villas and twelve beach front ocean view Villas.
The main Central Reception Building had majestic views through a breezeway lobby over the central hotel swimming pool feature court towards the sea. All the hotel amenities were focused in this building as the central public realm allowing for total privacy and uninterrupted sea views. Other facilities included in the design were designed to be easily accessible including the conference and Banqueting Venue, the state of the art Signature Spa and Wellness Center also accommodating a traditional Arabic Hammam, a Kids Club, an All-Day Dining Restaurant, a Pool Bar and Grill and a Specialty Restaurant.
