Zaya launches Nurai island resort

Zaya, a newly-formed Abu Dhabi-based real estate company, yesterday launched its first of many property ventures – Nurai, a private community of limited edition resort beach-front estates and water villas on a natural island off the coast of Abu Dhabi. Zaya CEO Nadia Zaal said: "Using our unique understanding of the clientele and refusing to be bound by convention, Nurai is the most stylish contemporary living experience in the world." Nurai is surrounded by clear waters and ringed with pristine sandy beaches.

Lying immediately northeast of Abu Dhabi, the island is set in isolation away from the hustle and bustle of city life yet is within minutes from the mainland. Zaal said that there is a shortage in this kind of sophisticated projects and means that Zaya will remain focused on the high-end of the market with plans for expansion into the Middle East, Asia and Europe being announced shortly.

"On Nurai, you can have your own piece of paradise and still be just minutes from Abu Dhabi. On this island, you will find a distinctive collection of limited edition resort beachfront estates and water villas, along with all the services and comforts of a world class boutique resort," added Zaal.

Nurai resort residents will have access to all of the services and comforts provided by the boutique resort. In addition to the amenities of the contemporary hotel, which include three restaurants and multiple lounges, Nurai also offers a private helipad and marina with arrivals lounge, a fully equipped spa and fitness centre, private beaches and water sports facilities.
