DUBAI: A group of companies is developing another Pangkor Laut Luxury Resort, Residence & Spa Village on the prestigious "The World" development, taking shape four kilometres off the Jumeirah coastline of Dubai.

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.

Dubai's world has a sinking feeling

THEY were intended as the ultimate luxury possession. But ''The World'', the man-made islands off the coast of Dubai shaped like the countries of the globe, are sinking, a property tribunal has heard.

Developed with hotels and villas, the islands are accessible by boat, but the sands are eroding and navigational channels between them are silting up, the British lawyer for a company bringing a case against state-run developer, Nakheel, told judges. ''The islands are gradually falling back into the sea,'' said Richard Wilmot-Smith QC, for Penguin Marine.

According to Nakheel, 70 per cent of The World's 300 islands have been sold, but most of the development plans have been brought to a crashing halt by the financial crisis. Only one of the islands - Greenland - is inhabited, and that is a showpiece owned by the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum.

The company was part of Dubai World, the state-owned conglomerate that had to be bailed out of debts put at $A25 billion at the end of 2009.

Nakheel is also behind Dubai's palm-shaped offshore developments. Villas in the only one near completion, Palm Jumeirah, were given to or bought by footballers, including former England stars David Beckham and Michael Owen.

Investors who bought islands proved unwilling or unable to finance further work when Dubai's property prices halved.

John O'Dolan, owner of the company that bought Ireland for $A38.5 million, killed himself, while Safi Qurashi, who bought Britain for $A69 million, is in jail in Dubai after being accused of bouncing cheques.

Penguin Marine, which bought the rights to provide boat travel to the islands, is trying to get out of a contract that involves paying an annual fee of about $A1.6 million to Nakheel.

Graham Lovett, for Nakheel, said the project was not dead but admitted it was ''in a coma''.

The tribunal found for Nakheel yesterday, saying it would give full reasoning later.

A Nakheel spokesman insisted the islands were not sinking. ''Our periodical survey over the past three years didn't observe any substantial erosion that required sand nourishment,'' he said.

------------------------------------------------------

Haven't heard about this project for a long time, doesn't sound good to me, I hope it will get better, really want to see it finished.

Anyone else see this as an outrageously unnecessary attempt to out do themselves on the Palm Jumeirah?

Why would you want to go to such an isolated island, I wonder.

Is it just me, or does it seem like there is almost no privacy on these islands because they are so close together? I thought the whole lure of a private island was that it is your own personal place with no other people. It kinda defeats the purpose if you can look over your shoulder and see your neighbors on the beach on their island 30 feet away, and vise-versa.
