The Palm Jumeirah

The exclusive Palm Jumeirah is one of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks. The gorgeous residential community is an artificial archipelago created using land reclamation by Nakheel and is the world’s largest man-made island. Four thousand exclusive villas dot the two kilometre island which fires out from the mainland in the form of a palm tree which contains 17 fronds and a surrounding crescent. For years it has been one of the most sought after real estate options in Dubai. Palm Jumeirah is a central tourism hotspot with thousands of visitors flying over each year just to take a glance at this unique structure.

The island is the original and first of three such planned enterprises and offer access to a lavish private environment and small knit community. Beautiful sculpted greenery line the outskirts and quaint streets of the community which the main thoroughfare gives efficient access to Dubai proper. Luxurious and opulent beach houses line the coasts with several being owned by some of the most famous people in the world. Despite the tasteful elegance of the district prices have stabilised making it more accessible than it once was and opening amazing investment opportunities to a fortunate few.

Leisure and retail elements have been developed on the island, ensuring that residents don’t need to go far in search of amenities. The Palm Jumeirah Monorail is a 5.4 kilometre monorail which directly services the area adding to the convenience. Residents are treated to expansive beachfront vistas of the endless, clean ocean surrounding Dubai. For many, a Palm Jumeirah residential address is a testament to their success and a dedication to peace, beauty and comfort.

Property Options
As previously noted the island’s 4000 residences are constructed in the villa style, reflective of island living. Constructed by master developer Nakheel, these properties are noted for their luxurious interiors and state-of-the-art conveniences. With every modern comfort available it’s a challenge to locate a more beautiful area. Villas are relatively close together providing a feeling of exclusive community and prices have come down to a more reasonable level over the years, although they’re clearly still intended for higher income earners.
