Twenty private, manmade island villas in Dubai mark a new age of luxury for island travelers. Nestled just between the palm Jumeriah against Burj Al Arab and Port Rashid, the archipelago of islands are each outfitted with its own private villa and beach – and they’re for sale.
The project initially launched in 2005, but after the financial crisis of 2008-09, developers halted construction. Now, Paul van de Camp, CEO of Dutch Docklands, and Oqyana Real Estate have resumed the floating-islands project, developing and selling off the remaining islands to interested buyers.
Van de Camp said, “Having your own private island close by a world class city will be a unique opportunity for a very selective group of people that only want the best. This new development will diversify the already impressive Dubai real estate market to a new level of luxury.” He added, “Our ‘Amillarah Private Islands’ are completely self-supporting, scarless and all contain the latest state-of-the-art technology. Each one will be a piece of art that you can live in.”
The ambitious real estate venture is part of Dubai’s ever-expanding World Islands project.
