Dubai has established itself as a renowned destination for luxurious living, offering unparalleled extravagance. From sleek sports cars to opulent gold-adorned fixtures, the Emiratis truly embrace a life of grandeur. In Dubai, everything is taken to the utmost extreme, including the residences of the country’s elite.
These extraordinary properties can be found in various locations throughout Dubai, whether they are situated on expansive man-made islands in the sea or towering above the city, providing breathtaking views of the remarkable skyline. Villas, penthouses, and condos worth millions of dollars are scattered all over, each boasting intricate designs and lavish amenities. However, it’s worth noting that in some cases, these properties may lack convenient land access for everyday services like FedEx deliveries.
Floating Seahorse Villa
The underwater portion of the floating seahorse villas consists of a sturdy concrete box featuring windows on both sides, offering panoramic views of the captivating underwater world surrounding the semi-aquatic residence. This lower level encompasses two bedrooms, each equipped with its en suite bathroom. The water level section also boasts a fully equipped kitchen that can be discreetly concealed using fold-out panels, a dining area, and a convenient washroom facility.
On the upper level of the floating home, residents can indulge in a jacuzzi and enjoy a spacious terrace. However, the perks don’t end there. Owning one of these villas means bidding farewell to noisy neighbors and embracing the tranquil symphony of waves crashing against the front patio.
New Living on Water
Dubai has become the proud host of these magnificent residences, courtesy of a Dutch company called New Living on Water (NLW). Making their debut in the Middle East, NLW anticipates generating a staggering $150 million solely from the sale of these homes.
NLW’s primary objective was to design homes that seamlessly blend environmental sustainability with exquisite aesthetics, all while ensuring utmost privacy for their residents, even within the bustling cityscape. Although the target market for these homes may be limited, it is undeniable that a select group of fortunate millionaires and billionaires will swiftly acquire these properties, leaving no room for hesitation.
Duplex, Six Senses Residences
If you are a resident of Dubai and have achieved significant success in life, residing in one of Dubai’s prestigious neighborhoods, such as the Six Senses Residences on the renowned Palm Jumeirah, would be an excellent choice. This remarkable Sky Villa, spanning an impressive 6,196 square feet, offers a luxurious and comprehensive living experience.
While the open-plan lounge and infinity pool are common features in Dubai’s villas, the hidden second kitchen in this villa sets it apart. Additionally, residents of the Six Senses community enjoy exclusive access to the restaurant, bar, and spa facilities at the Six Senses Hotel.
Emirates Hills Supermansion
This expansive ‘super mansion’ spans an impressive 43,000 square feet and stands as one of the largest properties in Emirates Hills. Boasting seven bedrooms and a grand entrance area with soaring double-height ceilings, this opulent estate, priced at $25.5 million, is tailored for those who seek the epitome of luxury and refuse to settle for anything less.
The architectural design showcases a stunning rooftop adorned with a spacious patio that stretches from end to end, complemented by a captivating infinity pool at its center. The mansion’s enclosed front courtyard will be meticulously landscaped, featuring elegant fountains that line the driveway, where an array of prestigious vehicles such as Bugattis, Ferraris, and other high-end luxury cars are likely to be housed.
Penthouse, Dubai Canal
In partnership with the talented Italian designers Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani, architectural firms Arquitectonica and Meyer Davis Studio have joined forces to create a luxurious haven known as the Mr. C Residences, situated along the Dubai Canal. Among the standout offerings within this development is a magnificent penthouse apartment spanning an impressive 15,220 square feet, boasting five bedrooms and six bathrooms, and showcasing breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf.
This expansive penthouse comes complete with an array of amenities, including a spacious formal dining room capable of comfortably accommodating ten guests. Additionally, a rooftop terrace awaits, featuring a seating area and a refreshing swimming pool. Adding to the exclusivity, the penthouse is equipped with a private elevator accessible solely by the owner (and authorized security personnel, naturally).
