The development will also include 128 residential unites for sale ranging from one bedroom to four. All with private balconies. Each of the four-bedroom units will have access to their very own rooftop pools.

Where to play

In addition to the sandy shores, hotel guests will be able to enjoy all of the quintessential Anantara experiences. We’re talking about the rejuvenation at the Anantara Spa, charging and recharging at the gym.
