Sales of homes on Amwaj Islands, the first to offer 100% freehold land ownership to expatriates living in Bahrain, will be launched next month, it has been announced.

Impact Estate said it has been appointed by Amwaj Waves developer, Lona Real Estate Development, to launch the luxury residential complex in May.

It said in a statement that the project is "substantially completed", with the first two buildings set to open to the public in February 2015.

The Amwaj Waves Development is set in the heart of Amwaj Islands and comprises two 13- and two 7-storey buildings.

A large part of the development's buildings will be operated by the Gulf Hotels Group where they have created a luxury serviced apartment complex, called The Gulf Residence Amwaj, scheduled to open its doors early in the first quarter of 2015.

The remaining buildings will be for residential sale, with the 13-storey building that boasts 87 spacious apartments available for purchase by private investors, the statement said.

The Amwaj Waves complex will feature recreational features, including a 3,500m2 landscaped podium, sauna and steam rooms, three gyms, children's swimming pool, 230m2 adult pool, jacuzzi, fountains and Koi ponds, six BBQ areas, jogging track and a children's play area.

"This is a very unique and prestigious project, now almost completed, which I am very proud to be involved in," said Lona's projects director, Chris Woodrow.

Amwaj Waves offers spacious two and three bedroom apartments in addition to four luxurious penthouses.

Special pre-launch prices will start at BD92,257 ($244,600) for a two-bedroom unit. The residential free-hold building is scheduled to complete in the third quarter 2015, with fully furnished show apartments now available for viewing.

Amwaj Islands were reclaimed from the relatively shallow seas to the northeast of Muharraq Island, which is the northernmost island in Bahrain. The Islands contain residential, commercial (highrise) and hotel and retail buildings, as well as a circular marina with over 140 berths.

Amwaj is connected to the main island by a causeway, approximately 1.8km in length. Other facilities include a school, a university, a hospital, a fuel station, theme parks and a lagoonside dining and café precinct.
