XXII Carat by Forum Group has officially commenced the handover of its ultra-luxury Mediterranean-style hotel-inspired development and welcomed its first residents to their new homes on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah.
Located on the Palm Jumeirah’s West Crescent, it is a private beachfront gated community comprising 22 seven-bedroom villas ranging from 9,600 to 13,000 square feet.
Anton Yachmenev, managing director of Forum Group, said: “Forum Group is thrilled to have turned the vision of XXII Carat into a reality with its first set of owners making their home on the West Crescent.
“The successful opening has set a new benchmark for both ourselves and other developers to follow. This is an exciting day for us and we look forward to adding further projects of the same high quality and sophistication in the very near future.”
Featuring a selection of three distinctive types – Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire – the villas offer residents a hotel-inspired lifestyle with 24/7 concierge and exclusive access to private beaches.
Launched in August 2015, the villas are currently on sale for between AED40 million and AED95 million.
The villas are furnished with high-end furnishings and fittings imported from France and Italy. One of the standout features is the $1 million bathtubs, which have been carved from single pieces of Amazonian crystal by high-end Italian interiors specialists, Baldi.
Weighing in at more than 10,000kg each, the raw crystals were shipped from Brazil to Italy, where they were then hand- carved before arriving in Dubai.
