Waterfront wonder

Work on a new mixed-use project with a water park as its centrepiece will begin in Bahrain this month.

A project by the Bin Faqeeh Real Estate Investment Company, Layan is valued at BD30 million ($79.5 million) and is a part of the $1.3-billion Durrat Marina project in the south of Bahrain, overlooking the Arabian Gulf.

More than 200 homes ranging from studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, duplexes, penthouses and villas available on a freehold basis are being developed as a part of the project. The development will be showcased at Gulf Property Show, which will be held in Bahrain this month (see gulfBID, gulfInteriors & Gulf Property Show feature).

Nadia Bouslama, Bin Faqeeh’s head of marketing, says the design features a centrally placed water park that is fully encompassed within the grounds of a residential complex.

“The water park can be accessed through slides connected to balconies of a select number of exclusive apartments,” she adds.

A variety of activities including in-water movie theatres, in-water restaurants and wave pools with a surf area will be accessible to all residents.

Residents will also have access to 24-hour food service and housekeeping, health and fitness activities including squash courts, billiards rooms, gymnasiums for ladies and men, a spa and health centre as well as play areas for toddlers.

“Each of the exclusive luxury villas come with a luxury yacht and a luxury car,” says Bouslama.

Aside from the core residential aspect, the project also hosts a range of amenities such as more than 300 sq m of gardens and greenery along with 38 restaurants, cafes and stores.

“Our theme for this year is to create an ideal family retreat in Bahrain that would serve as the perfect weekend escape,” she says.

The prices of homes begin at BD55,000 ($145,502).
