Seven Tides marks Palm project completion
Dubai, February 17, 2013
Dubai-based real estate developer Seven Tides, said it has received the green light to hand over its new luxury five-star Asian-inspired resort development to management company Anantara Hotel Resorts & Spa.
Occupying a prime beachfront position on the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, The Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa will feature 293 hotel rooms and 456 condominium apartments, and is set to open in the third quarter.
The Anantara Dubai Palm Jumeirah Resort & Spa has been awarded a Building Completion Certificate (BCC) by Trakhees, the Government of Dubai’s planning and development department, said the company in a statement.
“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,” remarked CEO Abdulla Bin Sulayem.
In a first for the UAE’s diverse hospitality sector, the resort will offer 18 stilted ‘over water’ villas and 15 absolute beachfront suites - including three 206 sq m royal beach pool villas where 50 per cent of the rooms in total boast direct water access from their balconies.
With Asian-style pointed roofs, exposed vaulted ceilings and an al fresco ambiance, the decor and layout are reminiscent of upmarket hideaway resorts found in the Maldives and Thailand.
“This is yet another example of Seven Tides’ ability to conceptualise, develop and deliver true mixed-use concepts to the market," said Bin Sulayem.
The 644 Oceana Residence apartments, located on the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah offer spacious one to three-bedroom units with panoramic views over the private gardens and beach.
A luxury lifestyle development, the complex includes a private infinity pool, lazy river and beach, and jogging track, landscaped recreation areas and a gymnasium.
"The success of existing projects such as Oceana, which has become a preferred beachfront residential destination, and the landmark hotel, residence and office product available under the Ibn Battuta Gate banner, have set the benchmark for multi-asset class developments in the emirate,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
