- Ultra-luxury palm development marks initial handover
- Features 22 villas offering panoramic views of sun, sea and sand
- Each unit offers unique luxury and leisurely lifestyle
XXII Carat by Forum Group has officially commenced the handover of its completed units and welcomed its first residents to their new homes on the Palm Jumeirah.
The ultra-luxury Mediterranean-style hotel-inspired development promises residents a unique blend of seclusion and sophisticated waterfront living. Located on the Palm Jumeirah’s West Crescent, it is a private beachfront gated community comprising 22 seven-bedroom villas ranging from 9,600 to 13,000 square feet.
Anton Yachmenev, Managing Director of Forum Group, said: “Forum Group is thrilled to have turned the vision of XXII Carat into a reality with its first set of owners making their home on the West Crescent. With the outstanding location, finishes, exceptional architecture and the ultimate in seclusion, we are confident our residents will feel right at home.
“The successful opening has set a new benchmark for both ourselves and other developers to follow. This is an exciting day for us and we look forward to adding further projects of the same high quality and sophistication in the very near future.”
Featuring a selection of three distinctive types – Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire – the villas offer residents a hotel-inspired lifestyle with space and seclusion, 24/7 concierge, large gardens and exclusive access to private beaches. Launched in August 2015, the villas are currently on sale for between AED40m and AED 95m.
The villas are furnished with high-end furnishings and fittings imported from France and Italy from brands such as La Cornue, La Cuisine Française, Devon&Devon and Miele. One of the standout features is the $1 million bathtubs, which have been carved from single pieces of Amazonian crystal by high-end Italian interiors specialists, Baldi. Weighing in at more than 10,000kg each, the raw crystals were shipped from Brazil to Italy, where they were then hand- carved before arriving in Dubai.
XXII Carat’s gardens are another standout feature. Careful landscaping has created a natural living environment to give the feeling of a true oasis. The private gardens have been brought to life using lush greenery and a combination of exotic and local plants such as Baobab. Palm and Olive trees. A sense of serenity and privacy has also been created through the use of a fencing system with built-in sound barrier panels between each villa, ensuring that both sights and sounds from neighboring villas are entirely eliminated guaranteeing complete privacy.
