The World Islands is a fabulous archipelago of 300 man-made islands formed in the shape of a map of the world. Envisioned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, and developed by Nakheel Properties, The World Islands offer supreme levels of exclusivity and privacy to its occupants. In fact, it is one of the most imaginative real estate projects of the world, which aims to redefine the concept of home and holiday. Deriving inspiration from Maldives, this development is by far the most extravagant and sought after project in the UAE.
The entire project has been divided into four categories, enabling investors to choose from private homes, dream resorts, estate homes, and community islands. Ranging from 250000 to 900000 square feet in size, each island is surrounded by about 50-100 meters of water. While the residential islands provide low-rise buildings with classy apartments, the commercial islands abound with shopping arcades, restaurants, and resorts. There are also several fantastic villas and water homes. The breakwater surrounding the islands has been transformed into coral reefs, thus attracting marine wildlife to the development. Away from the hustle & bustle of the mainland, this archipelago offers luxurious living in a tranquil setting. The infrastructure of this development enables occupants and visitors to relax and rejuvenate.
