Abu Dhabi’s evolution into a world-class tourism destination continues apace, with a firm focus on the future that also preserves the heritage and culture of the UAE. Saadiyat Island is Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC)’s flagship project and the capital’s premier island destination.

Development on the 27-square kilometre island, which lies 500 metres off Abu Dhabi’s coast, is based upon environmentally-sensitive principles, with residential units centred around natural beauty, cultural experiences and architectural excellence. The island’s premier selection of homes will provide visitors and residents unparalleled experiences set in inspired backdrops.

Jawaher Saadiyat, an exclusive gated community, is located minutes away from the Saadiyat Cultural District and faces the Gary Player-designed Saadiyat Beach Golf Club. With its bold geometric styles accented by premium glass, stone and wood, Jawaher’s modern sculpted villas and townhouses aspire to transform the everyday life of residents into the extraordinary.

Along with the exclusivity of being close to Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, Jawaher Saadiyat’s visitors and residents will also be near Saadiyat Beach District, a natural showcase of crystal clear waters and a Mediterranean-style beach club with a view of the region’s first championship golf course.

Mamsha Al Saadiyat, a name quickly becoming synonymous with beachfront living, will offer exclusive homes in a vibrant and cosmopolitan community. As the first residences completed in the Saadiyat Cultural District, Mamsha Al Saadiyat’s homes will feature high- end furnishings in contemporary glass, timber and metals designed specifically for distinguished beachfront living.

Saadiyat Lagoons, a community tailored to nature and activity-focused lifestyles, will also include an equestrian centre and 10 kilometres of pristine landscaping in the form of parks, gardens, running tracks and cycle routes. Currently under development, Saadiyat Lagoons are destined to be the Island’s largest residential and leisure district.

Situated close to Saadiyat Marina District, Cultural District and Beach District, TDIC’s master-planned residential and leisure communities will place visitors and homeowners within easy reach of the island’s exceptional hotels and restaurants such as St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort and Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, outstanding educational institutions including New York University Abu Dhabi, Cranleigh School Abu Dhabi and Redwood Nursery, and plenty more incredible dining, shopping and leisure attractions.

As for completion dates, Mamsha Al Saadiyat is expected to be completed in Q3 2018, Jawaher Saadiyat in 2018 and Saadiyat Lagoons District in 2019.
