UAE: Abhishek Bachchan recently toured the site of his villa currently under construction at Sanctuary Falls, the resort-style villa community located within Jumeirah Golf Estates.
Abhishek was impressed with the significant progress that has been made on-site. "A few months ago there was nothing out here. It’s amazing to see the villas being built and the community taking shape. The golf course looks spectacular and I am impressed by the attention to detail in the construction," he said.
Shaikh Holdings has made considerable progress in the construction of its award winning flagship project. Construction work is currently underway and the Sanctuary Falls show villa is due to be completed on-site by March 2009. The project is on schedule with a completion date of March 2010 for the entire 96 villa community.
Sanctuary Falls overlooks the Earth golf course designed by Greg Norman, and work on this course is also well underway. The already famous golf course will host the inaugural Dubai World Championship, which is part of the European Tour and is the world’s richest golf tournament, scheduled for November 2009.
Imran Shaikh, CEO, Shaikh Holdings said: “Shaikh Holdings is committed to developing this benchmark residential community on time and to meeting the high expectations of our residents. Our project is on schedule with Abhishek, Aishwarya, and fellow Sanctuary Falls residents to receive keys to their villas by March 2010”
“Abhishek and Aishwarya are very excited about their new villa. They have entrusted us with building their dream home and we look forward to delivering on this promise.”

Sanctuary Falls has already received numerous regional awards and has recently won the 'Best International Golf Development' award at the International Property Awards held at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, USA.
Sanctuary Falls is a landmark villa community set amidst lush golf vistas and inspiring lakes. The community features five to six bedroom villas, ranging from 5,600 to 10,600 square feet. Offering a selection of traditional, modern and contemporary architectural styles, each home has been meticulously designed to offer a unique and inspired living experience.
