Dubai, October 18, 2008
Dubailand, the most ambitious leisure, tourism and entertainment destination and a member of Tatweer Dubai, on Saturday broke ground for its Dh1.5 billion ($408.4 million) Palmarosa project.
The first spa lifestyle community in the Middle East, Palmarosa, will consist of 217 villas and town houses, serviced apartments, club houses, offices and a five-star hotel along with a spa mall that will be dedicated to selling spa products at Dubailand.
The groundbreaking for the 2.5 million sq ft project was conducted by Mohammed Al Habbai, senior vice president of Dubailand, and Gaurav Goel, CEO of Palmarosa, in the presence of senior officials from both organisations.
To be developed by Gulf Developers, Palmarosa will be ideally located off Emirates Road behind the Arabian Ranches, offering residents a unique lifestyle and ultimate relaxation through various forms of holistic healing and well-being.
Designed as Dubai’s primary botanical wonder, it will feature majestic palms, bubbling fountains and unique variety of plants and flowers meticulously selected to instill peace to the body, mind and soul, said Al Habbai.
'We are very proud to announce the groundbreaking for the Palmarosa project, reiterating Dubailand’s commitment to delivering the project as scheduled. It also strongly affirms our keenness to provide integrated and complementary services catering to the entire family,' he added.
'Our aim at Dubailand is to offer a spectrum of diverse offerings, ranging from leisure and entertainment to sports, art and culture, that is complemented by a luxurious lifestyle.'
'We are confident Palmarosa will significantly contribute to the well-being of residents seeking a holistic retreat even while remaining in close contact with the vibrancy of city life,' he added.
The prestigious development will boast one of the largest spa treatment facilities in the region along with a unique blend of traditional and advanced therapies that will ensure visitors are relaxed, refreshed and invigorated.
Goel pointed out that Palmarosa would contribute to the multi-dimensional offering of Dubailand, providing high end services based on global standards.
'We are delighted to be developing such an innovative project that will represent a unique gateway from the pressure of city life, and a distinctive platform that will extend residents and visitors unparalleled experiences in luxury and wellness all within their own locale.'
Palmarosa residents will experience legendary hospitality at one of the world’s most idealistic 5-star retreats, the Palmarosa Luxury Hotel.
