Along the Umm Suqueim highway, an inward road leads to a green paradise. The air here is fresher and cleaner to breathe that you will feel like you are in a hamlet nestled in the mountains. This is AKOYA Oxygen, inspired by a vision of year-round sustainable living.
AKOYA Oxygen is one of the newest projects in Dubai built on a grandiose 55-million-square-foot land. Every aspect of the design here is a commitment towards an eco-friendly style of living. Accommodation is styled in a mix of villas, townhouses and luxury hotel apartments designed using natural materials. Elements such as low emitting paints and water-heating systems that harness solar power will be used.
The community will have a promenade that will feature several shopping, dining and entertainment options that will cater to residents and visitors alike. The promenade will be stunningly decorated with a gurgling fountain and a beautiful lake.
The AKOYA Oxygen community is set to have the region’s first The Rainforest where thousands of trees will be planted to create a lush green environment. It will be home to several species of aviary life as well as unique types of plants and trees. Here, tropical birds and insects will live in tandem with each other in a natural habitat. The rainforest will be maintained in a controlled environment, under a sky dome, and will have other interesting features such as waterfalls.
The 18-hole world-class Trump World Golf Club is expected to be completed in December this year. An expansive clubhouse replete with amenities completes the modern offerings available within the development.
Additionally, the community is slated to feature a luxury ayurvedic spa, world-class schools and nurseries, a fully organic produce market, mosque, sports facilities, dedicated bicycle trails, waterplay fountains, hybrid and electric car facilities, and facilities for recycling.
