Seven Tides gains permit for Palm Anantara resort
Fit-out begins ahead of resort's opening during third quarter of 2013
Dubai-based developer Seven Tides is to begin the handover of the Anantara Dubai Palm Resort & Spa on the Palm Jumeirah after gaining a completion certificate for the building by Dubai's planning and development department, Trakhees.
The Asian-themed development will be run by Thai hospitality group Anantara and will contain 293 hotel rooms and 456 apartments when the fit-out of units completes during the third quarter of 2013.
It will be based on the trunk of the Palm and will include 18 stilted 'over water' villas and 15 'absolute beachfront' villas where 50% of rooms have waterfront access from balconies.
Seven Tides CEO Abdulla bin Sulayem said: "The BCC is much more than just a piece of paper; it represents a major milestone in the development of this stunning resort and spa complex, and signifies that we are in the final detailed stages of completion, as well as allowing us to begin the process of applying for official operating licenses and permits."
Seven Tides has also developed the Oceana complex on the Palm Jumeirah, and the Ibn Battuta Gate hotel complex.
