If you’re one of the many islanders who believe making the lengthy trip to Durrat Al Bahrain is wasted, then this new development might just change your mind.
Perhaps one of the most exciting real estate companies in the country right now, Bin Faqeeh, which is behind a number of luxury apartment blocks springing up across the island, has just launched a new project called Layan, and it’s located right at the heart of Durrat Marina.
Layan, which is a female Arabic name meaning “soft” or “gentle”, is a mixed-use project offering swish apartments, villas with a private waterpark, and over 30 shops and restaurants in the area.
And they’re going all-out to officially announce the launch of Layan from March 24-26, with another Bahrain first – a “dining in the sky” event that will see a group of guests soar 50 metres in the air to enjoy beautiful sea views and culinary treats.
Back on the ground, a White House garden party with a carnival atmosphere is also set to take place at the same time.
The new project joins a string of other seafront developments around the country and follows the partial opening of the sales office, beach and leisure facilities in Marassi Al Bahrain, as well as a new phase of more ocean-facing properties in Al Baher, also at Diyar Al Muharraq.
About to transform Al Fateh Corniche, the 150,000 square metre Bahrain Marina project is also well underway.
Meanwhile, every shoppers’ dream, The Avenues, is still ongoing at Bahrain Bay, where Bin Faqeeh are also erecting the ten-storey Waterbay residential building that overlooks the waters and Four Seasons’ gardens.
Despite a global economic downturn, it’s clear that the sky is the limit for luxury property in Bahrain.
