If you were to identify three key features of this development – which would you choose?
That would seriously limit my options. However, I would say location, location and location. The development is enveloped in its cocoon of landscaped features and greenery. Royal Pearls is designed as a residential haven at a vantage point in the Business Park of Meydan Development, in Nad Al Sheba and with easy access to four major highways – Al Ain Road (E66), Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road (E311), Al Khail Road (E44) and Emirates Road (E611) which makes it easily accessible yet away from the congested city traffic.

What is the USP of this project?
At the heart of Royal Pearls, will be a unique and ultra-modern community centre, surrounded by water features, and a beautifully landscaped park. Residents and visitors alike will enjoy a wide assortment of state-of-the-art attractions and leisure offerings including cafes, restaurants, a 55-seater private theatre, day care centre, multifunctional hall, spa, salon, bowling alley, squash courts and a massive fitness centre.

You tout smart technology driven aspect of the development, what precisely are you referring to?
The individual units will all offer keyless access, and is secured by a smart security system that recognises the license plate, key/fingerprint or access code for entry. The units are automated with lights and accessories being networked and controlled through an app.

What are the lifestyle offerings and amenities available in the development?
The residents and their guests will have access to a range of lifestyle amenities including a range of shopping, entertainment and leisure options including: shopping centres, restaurants, coffee shops, gym facilities in each cluster, locker rooms, barbeque facilities, family rooms and function rooms. The clubhouse and community centre will offer: children’s day care, fitness centre, spa, private theatre (50 pax), bowling alley, squash court, video games, multipurpose hall and coffee shop,

What next after Royal Pearls?
We are continuously looking at other developments, opportunities and other re-fund or re- investment trust within the UAE, the surrounding region and eventually around the world.
