Dh600 million luxurious sea-front resort rises on the Hajar Mountains of Fujeirah
Mina Al Fajer Real Estate LLC, a leading property developer in the UAE has unveiled its master plan to develop a Dh600 million unique mountain-sea resort property that will include a 200 room five-star hotel managed by the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts.
Mina Al Fajer Resort, as the project is called, will commence in June 2007 and is expected to be completed before the end of 2009, giving Fujeirah its first of what is expected to be a growing number of world-class, distinctive and exclusive real estate projects.
With HH Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan as Chairman of the property development firm, Mina Al Fajer Resort boasts a stunning concept in which the 777,025 square foot project stands right where the Hajar Mountains embrace the sea.
“The philosophy was to develop a property that will preserve the unique charm and heritage of the location while providing a contemporary and luxurious twist. The result is a spectacular mountain resort with a superb sea-front that will include a marina, 48 mountain villas, 13 solarium villas, and 80 marina apartments, in addition to a five-star hotel to be managed by Fairmont,” said Mr. Abdulrahman Al Awar, Director of Development and Investment in the private office of HH Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and Managing Director, Mina Al Fajer Real Estate LLC. “In Mina Al Fajer, nature provides a dramatic backdrop to a contemporary, luxurious living experience that will be quite unlike any community in the region.”
The vision of Mina Al Fajer literally flows out of Fujeirah's landscape and reflects its serene and charming beauty. “Conceptually, the master plan has maintained strong connections between the water, sand, mountain, sun and the sky – resonating clearly with the emirate's topography,” continued Al Awar.
Mina Al Fajer Real Estate LLC has assembled an impressive team of design, engineering and construction partners to bring to life its first major project. “We have commissioned renowned designer Xavier Bole to create the entire concept of the property and Erga Progress to design and help us supervise the construction and implementation of the project. These are some of the biggest and most prestigious names in the industry; their experience and expertise will help ensure the project is built in accordance to world-class quality standards,” added Al Awar.
He also revealed that Mina Al Fajer resort will be the first in a planned portfolio of distinctive projects that will propel the company to become one of the leading property developers in the region, with iconic properties not only in the Middle East but also in Europe and the Indian sub-continent.
