Seven Tides has announced plans to develop a luxury resort on The World islands.
The company whose property portfolio includes the recently opened Dukes Dubai on The Palm Jumeirah has acquired 10 of the World Islands in the south American cluster which features Argentina, Buenos Aires, Bolivia, Chile and Falkland.
The company’s CEO Abdulla Bin Sulayem has revealed plans to construct a low-rise, 60 villa luxury resort which will feature a signature restaurant, all-day dining venue, spa as well as water activities.
“You will have the skyline of all of Dubai. One of the closest ones to the shoreline,” Bin Sulayem said.
“It’s five minutes distance from the Jumeirah Marina Port and it’s less than 15 minutes from Anantara, The Palm Dubai, by boat. If you’re staying on the island and you want to go shopping, we can drop you to the closest point to Dubai Mall.”
He compared the project to the Maldives in terms of what he is trying to create.
“I noticed from most successful hotels [in the Maldives], that they have built their landscape in a way that if you have your villa there, if it’s a beach villa or water villa, the moment you leave your balcony, you feel you’re the only person there,” he said.
“They’ve built the landscape to add as much privacy as they can. This is the key to the success of that hotel. So we need to be careful and really be successful with the landscape design, this is really important.”
