The Hilton Anatole is elevating the hotel experience to an entirely new level with the addition of JadeWaters, the $20M water resort just minutes from Uptown, Downtown, and everywhere in-between. This concrete jungle oasis features two new event lawns, leisure pool, beach-entry family pool, two slides, teen and child activity areas, a lazy river, five daybeds, a swim-up bar with 23 seats and a restaurant with 125 seats and four TVs. Yes, you read that correctly – all of that. And it’s totally awesome.
Jumping on the ‘staycation’ wagon, my partner and I took the weekend to enjoy all of the amenities the 1,600 room, 27 floor, Hilton Anatole has to offer. After all, why should out-of-towners have all the fun? What we found is a one-of-a-kind vacation experience unlike any other in Dallas. JadeWaters, who’s name was inspired by jade horse sculptures that accent each cabana, has something for every member of the family. For those worried about too many children – fear not. There is a natural separation that occurs with more children-centered activities on one side of the property and a swim-up bar with eight cabanas on the other. The 630-foot lazy river helps reinforce the natural separation.
The level of service at JadeWaters is next level, as well! Thirsty? Hungry? Don’t get up, just order straight from your lounge chair (Over 400 lounge chairs for that matter)! Better yet, you can reserve a cabana or daybed for your stay. Cabanas include four reserved chaise lounges, table and chairs, 55″ TV, mini fridge, 8 bottles of water, locking drawer, ceiling fan, towels and a tropical fruit platter. It’s the perfect setting for any party or corporate event!
So as summer comes to an end and the faint sounds of back to school bells ring in the distance, be sure and book your staycation – it’s the perfect way to say, ‘BYE SUMMER!’ The full JadeWaters complex will be open from Memorial Day through Labor Day each year, with the leisure pool operating year-round based on the weather.
