Dubai World Security to provide
integrated security for The World islands


- Contract signed for major security measures to safeguard Nakheel’s iconic island project
- Key milestone achieved in The World development


Dubai, September 27, 2008: Dubai World Security, the security solutions arm of Dubai World, and Nakheel, another Dubai World company and creator of the iconic island development The World, signed a major Marine Security Services contract aimed at providing end-to-end marine security cover for The World.

Under the contract signed by Mr. Hamza Mustafa, Managing Director of The World, at Tamani Hotel Marina, Dubai World Security will deploy its full service capabilities, making use of highly trained manpower and ultra modern equipment to ensure safety and security to the upcoming island community.

The contract is considered to be an important step for the security service provider in its drive to maintain a qualitative edge in the area of large-scale multi-layered operations. It is also an important milestone for The World, which is progressing towards completion. The two sides aim to put in place a comprehensive security mechanism which will be operational by the time the project is completed.

Mr. Mahmood Amin said the security contract with Nakheel for The World is a reflection of the confidence the company has in Dubai World Security to provide top class service.

“Ensuring safety and security to an icon like The World is a major responsibility. It calls for maximum preparedness to put in place a system that can deal with any kind of emergency. The task needs highly trained manpower and efficient equipment. Dubai World Security is proud to claim these qualities.

“As the security solutions provider to Dubai World’s flagship projects, we have the experience and expertise to deliver the best of services. I am confident that the Marine Security Services assignment at The World will enhance Dubai World Security’s reputation for service excellence,” he added.

Mr. Hamza Mustafa hailed the signing of the contract as an important occasion for The World.

“This agreement is in line with Nakheel’s commitment to follow the highest standards of professional excellence. It is a major step as it involves the safety and security of one of the most talked-about projects in the world. We are entrusting Dubai World Security with the responsibility of providing the highest quality security services.

“They are an excellent organization with skilled manpower and top class equipment. They have the experience and expertise that we are looking for to protect Dubai’s most prestigious landmark,” he said.

Under the contract, Dubai World Security will provide two lines of security through highly trained Marine Service personnel. Well-equipped power boats with top-of-the-line navigation and communication facilities such as radar, GPS and portable radios will be used for patrols. Through its round-the-clock security cover to The World, Dubai World Security aims to set a new benchmark for quality excellence.

Development of The World is progressing well. Reclamation work was completed exactly to schedule in January of this year. Nakheel has now moved into phase 2 of the development of luxury project as infrastructure work will begin and islands are being handed over to individual developers who will shortly begin construction work on the individual islands.

Press release

Oasis Group signs Purchase Agreement to develop Island D43 on Nakheel's The World™

Island Resort of ‘Bright Thinking, Brighter Living’ offers exclusive learning facilities, fully serviced residencies, hotel and spa

November 12, 2008
Oasis Group, a leading international real estate investment and development group of companies, has announced that it has today (Wednesday, November 12, 2008) signed a Purchase Agreement with Nakheel for the purchase of Island D43, located close to the Eastern hub on Nakheel's The World™ project. The partnership with the internationally renowned master developer has been an integral part of Oasis Group's market expansion strategy, reinforcing the company's reputation as a top-tier real estate firm and a distinguished brand name in the global industry.

The company revealed that the development will be marketed internationally, primarily in Asia and Russia as well as the European Union, through Oasis Group's 500 plus global agents. Oasis Group has indicated that Island D43 will include a world-class hotel and fully serviced residencies under an investment profit share scheme, alongside dining, shopping amenities, cultural centres of learning and schools set within a luxury beach and leisure living environment. Oasis Group will make further announcements shortly on the marina operation designed by the region’s leading marina hospitality management company.

"This partnership with Nakheel opens another exciting chapter in Oasis Group's ongoing campaign to strengthen our foothold in key international markets. Oasis Group shares Nakheel's vision of maintaining The World's™ reputation as a luxurious destination for the world's elite, and we intend to extend this vision by creating a cultural and intellectual bastion for D43 by providing the Island's founding property owners a true sanctuary for brighter living and ultimately a more sophisticated investment opportunity," said the CEO of Oasis Group, Dr. Mostafa Elahy.

"Nakheel invites only a select number of clients to purchase properties on The World™; having been short listed by Nakheel as a VIP Developer, Oasis Group is proud to be one of the very few handpicked buyers, which clearly reaffirms our company's status as a highly respected and quality-oriented organisation in the business. Furthermore, Oasis Group's development proposal was approved by Nakheel within just 14 days, which is a highly remarkable feat and speaks highly of our vision and development plans for Island D43," added Dr. Elahy.

Hamza Mustafa, Managing Director of The Word commented: “Oasis Group complements Nakheel's vision for The World™. We are pleased that such an exciting project is going to be part of The World™ portfolio. We invite only the very best investors to develop the islands within our project to ensure that The World will be the ultimate luxury tourism destination when complete. This marks another successful investment in our project.”

Island D43 is strategically situated off the virtual coast of "China" on The World™. Island D43 has a total area of approximately eight hectares, including 3.6 hectares of water areas. Oasis Group intends to develop a total built-up area of up to 800,000 square feet, which includes a grand boutique hotel, up to 700 units of suites, two bedroom residencies, and 3 - 4 bedroom water villas.

The project will also showcase a wide selection of restaurants, bars, high-end retail outlets, room service options and boat mooring facilities. Other excellent value-added features of the project include water views of the inner lagoon harbour or stunning open sea vistas from all properties, stretches of pristine beaches on three sides, and easy access to the main transportation hub and public berths.

Founded in 2005, Oasis Group leverages the extensive industry expertise and experience of its founders, who have a combined experience of more than 25 years in the real estate markets of North America and the Arabian Gulf region under the leadership of its Chairman and CEO Dr. Mostafa Elahy. The company is currently implementing a comprehensive expansion program and is eyeing new projects in North Africa, East Europe and South East Asia.

why is norway north of sweden?

why is oslo west of norway when it is in reality located in the eastern part of norway?

why is germany located west of denmark, when it is in reality right south of it?

oh god, looking at this map makes me want to cry

the concept was so cool, and though they didnt have to copy the earth 100%, theres no denying that doing this would have made the whole project ten times awesomer!

Potential investors and the media had a glimpse of what is on offer as the luxury resort being developed by City-D Development, together with its partners, was unveiled recently.

The project is modelled after the award-winning Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia which is managed by YTL Hotels & Properties.





Designed by architect and engineering firm, Agostine and Raphael Group, the resorts development, fit-out and designers included Bang & Olufsen, Bagnaresi and ABB. The Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia, managed by YTL Hotels and Properties, will also incorporate their own ideas to the resort.

According to a statement, the Pangkor Laut Luxury Resort, Residence & Spa Village is being built on a 1.6 million sq ft island plot in the heart of The World.

The resort component offers 120 deluxe guest rooms, 20 fully-equipped luxury beachfront villas, shopping gallery, restaurants, aquapark and what is said to be a first for Dubai - an underwater nightclub.

The residential component under the Pangkor Laut Luxury Residence & Spa Village will offer 92 apartments, 20 attached beach villas with private pools and 28 independent luxury villas with private marinas.

Residents will be able to enjoy various facilities such as the community club, spa village and gourmet food boutique.

"Pangkor Laut will offer investors and guests a unique opportunity to experience island lifestyle on one of the most iconic projects on the planet," said Sofia Zigangirova, chief executive officer of Stars Dome Realty, the real estate agent for the project.



Pangkor Laut
Location: The World


An ideally holiday for family, fun and leisure time, the 153,818 square meter complex, Pangkor Laut is a community that includes everlasting moments of relaxation, in an environment constantly celebrating hospitality, vacationing and easy living.

Sight of luxurious hotel, surrounded by lavish villas, both harmoniously composed towards the Arabian Gulf as well as to the marina, the Hotel and its attached villas are customized in modern fashion to meet a large array of taste.

Facing the hotel, another attraction stands proudly. The services apartments, the penthouses and the surrounding charming services villas also offer some of the best views of the marina and to the sea.

Their community center for gathering is also at close proximity and caters for their daily needs. Sailing through the marina, an elegant structure stands as stands as gateway into the heart of the complex, bridging the hotel to the service apartments. Finally, connected together through pedestrian and walkways, the five islands are also home of luxurious bay-view residential villas designed to cater for a prestigious lifestyle beyond imagination.

Quite the opposite of the majority of spas today that focus on individual therapies, this one is designed to celebrate communal healing & treatment.

Here without doubt, water is the key element; it sculpts its way through the complex in a straight line towards the reception area and creates another ring of water in the core of the structure that provides the space of communal healing and medical ceremony.



Pangkor Laut Luxury Hotel
Indulge yourself in a sanctuary of supreme lifestyle in the middle of the sea. An exclusive hotel awaits you, to tame your senses and relax your nerves.

Stretching out onto the crystal blue sea and the clear sky, it also provides you with an extended view of both the sea and the marina, wherever you are.

Pangkor Laut development will contain 8 restaurants and bars.

Four of them in the hotel and residence premises and 3 in the entertainment complex which can accommodate more than 3,000 guests in 24/7 operation.

The unique under water night club will be one of the landmarks in the World Islands.
Malaysian Pangkor Laut to open in Dubai
DUBAI - Pangkor Laut Luxury Resort, Residence & Spa Village, a luxury multi-module resort property, modeled after the world-renowned Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia and being developed on The World, Dubai, was unveiled on 13 May in Dubai...

How would they maintain the coral, or can they survive in existing sea temperatures? Even the slightest change can devastate them (see Great Barrier Reef).
