Agree. it doesn't seem that "private" after all

Throw rocks in the sea around the islands and in a few decades you may have a great coral reef.

First look: World Islands nightclub


The Royal Island Beach Club on The World's Lebanon island is set to open any day now


Indian entreprenuer Wakil Ahmed Azmi bought the island in 2008


Wakil Ahmed Azmi has spent around AED68m on buying and developing the island


The beach club includes a 100-seat restaurant, cabanas, a lounge area and entertainment facilities


Guests will pay a set fee of AED200 to visit the island while Saturday's will cost around AED700 with an all-inclusive
brunch



The Friday nightclub "Stranded" will be priced around AED250 for entrance and transport


‘The World’ epitomised Dubai's boom-time ambition exemplified by its indebted developer Nakheel


Construction on the offshore project ground to a virtual standstill in the wake of the economic downturn


Nakheel has said 70 percent of the 300 manmade islands are sold and that building work is the responsibility
of the owners



Nakheel has claimed a number of buyers are in default, while a source told Arabian Business in July the developer
had changed terms on payment schedules previously agreed with buyers of islands to fast-track the collection of
fees



The new demands were allegedly issued after a revamp of Nakheel’s chairman and board in March 2010, as the
developer sought to restructure millions of dollars of debt



"Lebanon is a very important structure for us," said Saeed Harib, Managing Director, Nakheel Marine and Leisure


"This puts a new destination on the map and paves the way for more developments on The World - and more
reasons for for people to visit Dubai," said Saeed Harib



Throughout the week, the Royal Island Beach Club will only be accessible via a 25-minute journey on a private
yacht or RTA water taxi



For special events, including the weekly Friday club night Stranded, the RTA plans to run a 100-capacity river taxi
from Jumeirah Beach Park



The cost of the journey is likely to be included in the venue's ticket price


Nakheel launched a cruise ship service to ferry tourists around the Palm Jumeirah last month


The state-backed firm said future packages are expected to include tours of the World islands, night cruises and
diving packages



‘Cruise with Nakheel’ offers trips for groups of up to 12, 15 and 30 people around the Palm Jumeirah


The service will operate daily from 9-5pm and lasts one hour


Nakheel was one of the biggest casualties of Dubai’s property crash after overstretching itself with ambitious
projects such as the offshore World development



The company wrote down the value of its real estate by AED78.6bn after the credit crisis and received an $8.6bn
bailout from Dubai’s government

And I'm seriously wondering if those rich folks a willing to pay for sitting on the beach of a lame island with a view on some other empty island while there are so much cooler places in Dubai to spent your money....

The World will finally be open to the public with the Royal Island Beach Club

By Parag Deulgaonkar | Published Monday, February 13, 2012

The first island on The World project is expected to get the final permit to open its shores for residents and tourists this week.

The manager of the club, now rechristened, the Royal Island Beach Club, is confident of starting business before this month-end.

"We are waiting for the final building permission from authorities, which we expect to get this week. Once we get the permission, we will officially open the club, which should be before the month-end," Reza Sinnen, Operations Manager at the club, told 'Emirates24|7'.

Looks really nice but not much of a view from the beach. I guess once several Islands are developed close to each other; the views will be much nicer.

The concept is interesting, but I don't see why anybody would want to actually live here or even visit here. The islands are small, not very private, the whole place is really boring and there isn't even any decent nature to enjoy. Not to mention that it's incredibly expensive. It's amazing how many terrible ideas Dubai is filled with, the leadership there is incredibly incompetent.

Amazing project but 'plus mégalo, tu meurs'...

Another destination for multi billionaire individuals...Furthermore, the day where mother nature rages again, these islands will probably be razed...

I think they have thought about that when designing, and when will that day come in Dubai?
