Splendour and sophistication are elements that the new residential developments in Abu Dhabi have been focusing on. The capital boasts many unique projects which give residents a lifestyle experience.

Topping the list of preferred residences is the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers. It has over 100 fully serviced apartments ranging from studio to three-bedroom units. It offers the convenience of gourmet restaurants, spas and salons, and even a private beach. Proximity to the Corniche and a breathtaking skyline are added advantages.

If you love the beach and golf, the Saadiyat Beach Residences should be your prime choice. It has an eclectic mix of villas, townhouses and apartments set against the beach. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club are the unique selling propositions of the development.

Reem Island is one of the most sought-after areas in Abu Dhabi due to the variety of residential towers in it. From the tall and classy Sun and Sky Towers to the striking Gate Towers and Arc in the Shams Abu Dhabi district, it offers residential options for people of all tastes. Marina Square is the most popular development on the island. It has 11 towers and a small cluster of villas with all modern amenities encompassed within.

With spectacular views of the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Zayed Sports City (ZSC), Rihan Heights, part of the ZSC development, is an epitome of sophisticated living. It has villas and apartment towers set amidst a lush green landscape.

If you want to live away from the bustling crowd yet not be completely cut off from it, Al Raha Beach is a good option. It has a range of villas and apartments, and though it is on the outskirts of the core city, you can still access the city centre quickly. Yas and Saadiyat Islands are just a stone’s throw away.

Nature lovers can choose the Eastern Mangrove Residences which, as the name suggests, is set amidst lush mangroves. The apartments ranging from one to three-bedroom units focus on communing with nature and sustainable living.

With many options to choose from, house hunting can be a hassle-free affair.
