We have stayed at this property numerous times when it was run by its predecessor The Oberoi. The Oberoi was of the highest standard. Having returned to Dubai after a few years, we thought we would give The Anantara a try as we love the room size and the location. Unfortunately, there were many glitches in our stay. The service overall was poor - this includes reception, housekeeping, in room dining. The staff appear to be amateurs. We complained on more than one occasion and the hotel was slow to respond. The offering at breakfast was also poor. The breakfast area was grimy. The floors and tables were not clean - no side plates, lots of crumbs. The waiters were slow. The plates were scratched. It is a pity that The Anantara has not been able to maintain the high standards that were previously set at this property.

We had a wonderful experience throughout at Anantara. Everyone has been so kind and helpful. A huge thanks to Lakshan for leaving our room spotless and his honesty. I had left the safe open by mistake and when we came back stressing about it, it was heartwarming to see that nothing was touched. Thank you very very much, we will sure be back

I was there in the spa for a massage with Pranar, it was very good, I went twice, he does a great job, you are very relaxed and feel fresh. The room was also clean and everything was fresh What I can't recommend, however, is that they forgot or didn't bring a lot of breakfast items

Absolutely amazing hotel just a few steps from the metro. You can walk to the Burj Khalifa. The hotel (ex Oberoi) is undergoing a light refresh, especially in the social areas. The interiors are very pleasant. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom and provided an amazing view. the half-board dinner was excellent. The staff is very prompt and professional. The outdoor pool with very pleasant warm water was an oasis in the middle of the big city. We will definitely be back.

I stayed in the Anantara Downtown I loved the location very central , the rooms were so nice the bath room was fantastic. The room service comes twice a day so when you come back in the evening your room is all fresh for which I really liked. The breakfast has a wide selection of food even had a keto section I travel a lot and this is the first time I’ve seen this . I stayed @ the same hotel in the palm and I liked the rooms better at downtown , staff can’t do enough for you so pleasant I will definitely be returning to this hotel .

An indication of a good spa is when you drip away and fall asleep while having the massage. This is the experience I had! Nantakan my therapist is soo good! She’s one of those few therapist that you can sense she have the passion with what she do. She’s very careful not to make any noise and that matters to me a lot! What I love and find unique with this spa is you can do the steam in the treatment room, isn’t that super?!! I will definitely come back!!! Highly highly recommend if you’re looking for a place to relax! Anantara Downtown is the place! 😊

Anantara is a brand I always go to Internationally, but was disappointed with the quality of the Downtown Dubai hotel. Surely, the overall experience has room for improvement. The dining services and menu are quite limited in in-room dining, and also hotel restaurants.
