New Santorini style ultra-private luxury resort to open in Abu Dhabi

A new ultra-private luxury resort is set to open in the capital and we have the first pictures!

The Anantara Santorini Abu Dhabi Retreat is set to open in Q4 2023 and is promising a unique boutique escape from the city.

This sophisticated new addition to Anantara’s Middle East portfolio is located in Ghantoot, in an unspoilt enclave of coast approximately halfway between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Created to reflect the iconic buildings of its namesake island, the low-lying white buildings of Anantara Santorini will blend gently with the surrounding landscape and will feature a collection of ultra-private accommodation with spacious interiors and sun-drenched terraces. The luxury rooms are furnished in soft, neutral colours, which continue throughout the resort.

The resort has a private beach, a large outdoor pool that overlooks the Gulf, an indoor cinema provides private screenings on demand with the option of late-night movies with custom gourmet cuisine.

Bespoke spa treatments will be able available at the private beachside cabanas and a 24-hour butler service will ensure your needs are fulfilled around the clock.

Restaurants at the Anantara Santorini will include an elegant mediterranean venue which will use local ingredients and spices, plus, an ocean-side restaurant serving dishes from Greece.

You can enjoy evenings at the bar where beverages and creative cocktails will be served until late, with a DJ creating an ambient mood.
