"Sanctuary Falls" Show Villa in Dubai
Located on the Earth golf course designed by Greg Norman in Jumeirah Golf Estates, the Sanctuary Falls development is a boutique community that comprises 96 resort-style villas. There are numerous villa styles to choose from, based on traditional and contemporary themes, with sizes ranging from 5,625 square feet to 10,890 square feet. These come with golf course and lake views.
The interiors are designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates, who have designed Ritz Carlton properties worldwide and the Grand Hyatt Dubai; while landscape design was carried out by 40North and LMS, firms specialising in resort landscapes. Developer Shaikh Holdings has selected designers and suppliers specialising in the luxury and hospitality sectors to give the project the look and feel of an actual resort. Arabtec's luxury villa division, with its experience in bespoke Emirates Hills homes, was chosen as the main contractor, while the project architecture is done by DSA Architects, designers of the Madinat Jumeirah and the One and Only Royal Mirage.
A feature of Sanctuary Falls villas is the presence of an advanced home automation system. The proprietary system, developed in collaboration with Archimedia, was built from the ground up, with the resident family experience in mind. The system provides user-friendly and intuitive controls for the entire family, along with the flexibility to allow the system to be customized to suit individual lifestyles. Residents are able to control all household technology, including audio/video distribution, lighting, security, climate and communication, through any of the touch screen panels located throughout the villa. Apart from the custom interior detailing, each home also features a custom landscape plan, with resort elements that include arrival water fountains, resort-style landscaping, entertainment terraces, outdoor majlis seating areas and resort swimming pools. Residents are also provided a dedicated Quintessentially concierge with their villa purchase that extends their resort living experience beyond the boundaries of Sanctuary Falls.
Sanctuary Falls has won numerous regional awards and also achieved greater international acclaim recently, having won the prestigious ‘2010 Best International Golf Development' title at the International Property Awards in London.
