The new residence, due for completion in December 2016, will boast 11 mansions, and is to be constructed on the group’s Falcon Island site, in Ras Al-Khaimah.

Through exclusive partnerships with interior design group, Luxury Living, and home furnishing brands Bentley Home, Fendi Casa, and Kenzo Maison, each of the villas will combine sustainable technologies with quality craftsmanship.

"These luxury residences will be built to the highest architectural and environmental standards, and surrounded by the finest in hospitality and leisure amenities the region has to offer”.
