Abu Dhabi, the capital and the largest of the seven emirates, is one fascinating city. As a fast-growing metropolis, it has seen tremendous growth and transformation, becoming the futuristic city that it is today in just a few decades.
Abu Dhabi truly arouses curiosity by combining elements of the past and the future. No longer a vast expanse of desert it once was, it is now a safe, vibrant, and enviable destination and a special place in the hearts of
those who call it home. So much so that it’s been named the most liveable city in the Gulf—on top of Dubai—for the second year in a row!
The city also just keeps on growing. Abu Dhabi’s real estate sector, in particular, boomed over the years with developers constantly and simultaneously planning and completing residential communities right after the other. And rightfully so, the latest projects are proving to be a hit. Earlier this year, Aldar’s Noya Viva sold out in as little as four hours on the first day of its launch.
Whether your dream home is in the heart of the city or tucked somewhere quiet and peaceful, in the golf course or by the beach, better yet on an exclusive island, Abu Dhabi has something for you. Here’s our roundup of the best villa communities right now.
A crowd favorite, Al Raha is one of Abu Dhabi’s most coveted residential areas. The world-famous Al Raha Beach master development is divided into two precincts, The Beach and The Gardens. Both are further split into 11 sub-communities.
The three principal villa communities of Al Raha Beach are Al Bandar, Al Muneera and Al Zeina. Regardless of which one you choose, Al Raha is as relaxing as it is peaceful, a place where you can truly slow down and unwind whilst enjoying a central location in the heart of the city.
One of the most sought-after locations in the area, Saadiyat Island is a natural paradise that embraces island and luxury living. Home to Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, it is strategically positioned in the capital’s cultural hub which opens up a vast selection of world-class leisure and tourism facilities, as well as educational, civic and cultural institutions.
From long stretches of beach to coastal mangrove forests, Saadiyat Island is truly a place where the sea is at your doorstep. Hidd Al Saadiyat, Saadiyat Beach Villas, Nudra Villas and Saadiyat Reserve are just some of the communities that are proving popular among buyers and renters who are looking for luxury villas.
If you’re looking for a truly luxurious lifestyle, look no further than the beating heart of entertainment and leisure in Abu Dhabi, Yas Island. This man-made island is a master-planned residential community, offering plenty of options for attractions, activities, shopping venues and trendy restaurants. All without having to leave the island!
Living here means sweeping ocean, coastline, and golf course views. And when it comes to options for villa properties, you are spoilt for choice. NOYA, West Yas, and Yas Acres are just some of the most sought-after communities on Yas Island right now.
Nurai Island is an exquisite private island surrounded by pristine waters of the Arabian Gulf. It is is just a 12-minute boat ride off the coast of Abu Dhabi and boasts 65 resort villas with unrivaled views of the ocean.
Designed to blend into the surrounding beauty of the natural environment, there are four options when it comes to villas on Nurai Island. You can choose from one-bed beach villas, two-bed houses, four-bed water villas, and five or six-bed beach estate villas.
Each premium beachfront property is flooded with natural light—the word nur in Arabic means light—and comes with its own private pool. That’s on top of all the modern comforts one can possibly imagine for a truly one-of-a-kind island living!
Which one would you choose to settle in? With each community offering distinctive lifestyles, features and amenities on top of your own preferences and requirements, it can be hard to decide which one is best. If you need help choosing the one that is right for you, get in touch!
