A new benchmark for residential excellence will be established by the new Al Habtoor Island Resort and Spa, which is set for completion by 2011 – situated in the most desirable location on the Crescent of The Palm Jumeirah (secured by The Al Habtoor Group when The Palm was no more than an ambitious vision), the project is set to become one of our planet’s most exclusive addresses.
“Destined to be the jewel in the crown of the Al Habtoor property portfolio, this truly unique development will offer levels of luxury, superlative design, build quality and contemporary, innovative elegance never before seen in the Middle East, and I am certain that it will genuinely take people’s breath away,” said Khalaf Al Habtoor, Chairman of The Al Habtoor Group.
The Al Habtoor Group is determined to deliver a property that really lives up to the superlatives that are used to describe the development, and to that end scoured the world to find the most innovative and creative designers, architects, interior and landscape artists – the resulting team selected to turn Khalaf Al Habtoor’s ambitions into reality brings together world-leading expertise and a shared ethos of honesty, enthusiasm, passion and commitment to create something very special. The entire development will also be one of the world’s most environmentally friendly, as it has been designed to meet the highest LEED Gold requirements.
Surrounded by the stunning crystal waters of the Arabian Gulf, the property will also boast inspirational views of two of the world’s major landmarks – The Burj Al Arab and The Palm Jumeirah, and will deliver an exceptional living experience that has been created with care, thought and an appreciation of the very finest things in life. “70% of the entire development (one of the highest ratios in Dubai) has been allocated for beautiful gardens and water features, so there’s a real feeling of space,” added Khalaf Al Habtoor.
The resort will provide a complete lifestyle experience, offering guests and residents options ranging from the serenity of its spa, health club, beach and gardens to the activity of the gym, swimming pools, tennis and squash courts. The natural beauty of the ocean is a recurring theme throughout the project, and this has been translated into a tasteful, soothing environment that will both calm and stir the senses.
A very limited number of exclusive freehold apartments, penthouses and villas – all with privileged access to the luxury resort and spa – are also available within the resort, and The Al Habtoor Group has opened a show apartment which is now available for viewing. Initial demand has been strong, with discerning buyers from all around the world showing considerable interest.
“As a Group, we are uniquely positioned to develop, build and manage the resort’” concluded Khalaf Al Habtoor. “Habtoor Engineering built the Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Madinat Jumeirah and Terminal Three at Dubai International Airport and is also building Trump Tower, along with several other multi-billion projects, while our Hotels division has a proven track record of delivering excellence in hospitality and property management.”
The Al Habtoor Group has grown with the UAE, and while best known for construction, it is now globally recognised through its involvement in the hotel, automobile, real estate, education, insurance and publishing sectors. One of the UAE’s most respected and successful business corporations, it today operates in the UAE and international markets. The Group’s highly qualified, experienced and professional multi-national team now exceeds 40,000
The Group’s Construction division, Al Habtoor Engineering Enterprises (now part of the Al Habtoor Leighton Group), has a rich portfolio, having created some of world’s most stunning landmarks. These include the icon of Dubai, The Burj Al Arab, and the multi billion-dollar construction of the new Terminal 3 Concourse 2 project at Dubai International Airport. The varied brand portfolio of Al Habtoor Motors ranges from the mass-market appeal of Mitsubishi, with a wide choice of sedans, 4×4’s and commercial vehicles, through to marques such as Bentley, Aston Martin and Bugatti. The size of the operation is best illustrated by the fact that it imports more than 60,000 vehicles from Japan every year and has a well-established network of seven showrooms, eight service centres and twelve parts centres that effectively cover the entire United Arab Emirates. Habtoor Hotels owns and operates six top class hotels, among them the new five star properties, Habtoor Grand Resort & Spa Jumeirah Beach and Habtoor Grand Convention Centre & Spa Beirut.
