Anantara Santorini Abu Dhabi Retreat is the newest luxury offering in the UAE, providing an adults-only escape between the bustling cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This intimate resort takes inspiration from the famous Greek island of Santorini, aiming to bring a piece of Aegean charm to the Middle East.

With just 22 guest rooms and suites, the property has an exclusive, boutique feel. The design pays homage to Santorini's iconic aesthetic with whitewashed buildings that blend into the sandy surroundings. Indoors, the vibe is one of serene luxury with soft hues and soothing decor that creates a tranquil, elegant atmosphere.

Accommodations offer stunning views - wake up to expansive vistas of the sparkling Gulf waters, the resort's infinity pool seeming to meld with the sea on the horizon. Many rooms and suites have private terraces to better take in these picturesque scenes. The resort's set up allows for both privacy and modern amenities alongside Anantara's signature warm, attentive service.

Those looking for an ultra-exclusive experience can opt for a complete buyout, having the entire property to themselves. This makes it an appealing option for intimate destination weddings, corporate retreats, or just a lavish group holiday in total seclusion surrounded by natural beauty.

Dining is a highlight, with two signature restaurants each offering a distinct experience. Oia Oasis specialises in Arabic flavours like mezze spreads, tapas, and traditional pastries along with your morning coffee. The sea-facing terrace encourages a relaxed, free-flowing experience, even allowing you to veer off-menu. Thalassa takes you on a culinary tour of the Mediterranean, with dishes highlighting fresh, local seafood, meats, and produce. No matter which you choose, the food is authentic and the atmosphere pure Mediterranean bliss. For a truly bespoke experience, the resort offers customised Dining by Design events in special locations, or 24/7 in-room dining.

When it's time to unwind, the stunning infinity pool beckons, as does the Anantara Spa - a wellness sanctuary blending Eastern and Western influences. Indulge in treatments surrounded by amenities like a Himalayan salt sauna, Moroccan hammam, plunge pools, and relaxing spa tubs.

Anantara Santorini brings the best of the Mediterranean's laid-back sophistication to the UAE in a luxurious yet understated way. With top-notch service and attention to detail, it strives to make any holiday or event feel like a true escape and an unforgettable experience. Opening rates begin at AED2,700++ per night including breakfast for two. It's a serene new addition that allows you to live out Greek island dreams right in the Middle East.
