With Covid-19 worldwide travel restrictions, Seven Tides’ hotels in Dubai, are focusing on their local communities, by offering a range of Staycation packages, to suit most budgets.
“Due to the unprecedented viral outbreak, Eid getaways and leisure breaks to regional and international destinations, are simply not an option, which is not only frustrating travellers but also impacting local hotels,” said Abdulla bin Sulayem, CEO Seven Tides.
“Therefore, at a time of celebration, it is appropriate that our hotels reach out and give back to the local communities, that support them all year round. So, we are offering value-led Staycations, not only to generate revenue, but to offer five-star relaxation in a luxurious setting and some respite, especially for parents, after months of isolation and social restrictions,” he said.
“Naturally, certain restrictions are still in place and all of our hotels are following the regulations and guidelines put in place by the UAE authorities, to ensure health and safety is not compromised. But it is at least a chance for many, to enjoy five-star service, luxury accommodation, and private beaches, to entertain the whole family,” he added.
Seven Tides’ flagship hotel, the Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort, a renowned five-star luxury beach resort, with 400 metres of private shoreline, Asian-inspired accommodation, and world-class service, which, as the name suggests, is located on the Palm Jumeirah.
Restaurants such as Mekong, The Lotus Lounge, Revo Café and Crescendo are all open and children’s menus are available for family groups. There is also the option of an in-room dining menu, for guests wanting privacy or for the more adventurous, the hotel is offering a Dining by Design option, taking guests on a customised culinary journey.
This Eid, Anantara has created some tailor-made packages specially designed for guest sstaying in their exclusive villas. For beach access, guests can choose one of its expansive one- and two-Bedroom Beach Pool Villas or for the ultimate island living, the Over Water Villas which afford open views of the Gulf as well as unique views through the villa’s glass floor panels.
