UAE based Zaya, real estate Development Company, was recently awarded "Most Luxurious project in the world” for its exclusive Nurai island development by the Arabic edition of Newsweek publication.

The editorial board of Newsweek announced last July the launch of this new award category entitled "The Top 10 companies that changed the face of real estate development for ever”, which aims at recognizing companies that have effectively contributed to the development and growth of the real estate sector in the world.

A panel of expert judges nominated the top 10 companies based on a set of criteria and a scientifically calculated evaluation mechanism to select the ten finalists.

Zaya, the newly formed dynamic real estate company in the UAE clenched first position after competing against a number of other players that have been qualified for the award.

According to the jury, Zaya enjoys the highest level of quality and luxury through its newly launched "Nurai island," a spectacular private community which features a boutique resort and spa as well as limited edition beachfront estates and water villas on a natural island off the coast of Abu Dhabi.

Backed by a world-class team with more than 25 years of experience that was handpicked by CEO & Co Founder, Nadia Zaal, the Company operates through a shared passion to bring her vision of creating sustainable communities that will raise the bar in property development.

Zaal commented, "We are delighted to receive this great award from one of the world’s most respected business titles. The launch of Nurai comes as part of a lineup of distinctive projects that Zaya is planning to launch, featuring innovative designs that are based on extensive market research that focuses on the aspirations of discerning clients. Zaya will remain focused on the high end of the market with plans for expansion into the Middle East, Asia and Europe being announced in the near future”.

Nurai, a captivating haven is a prime example of this vision that is strategically located minutes away from the Capital Abu Dhabi housing an exclusive collection of beachfront estates and water villas.

Launched in May 2008, Nurai’s first release, which constituted 70% of the development’s units, was sold out in less than a month. The additional units being released include limited edition beachfront estates of 12,750 square feet which sit on generous plots, each with its own private beach, as well as luxury contemporary water villas of 5,540 square feet, which offer an unparalleled over-water living experience.

Discerning buyers interested in resort beachfront estates will have their choice of two designs – ’The Shoreline’ or ‘The Seaside’ while water villas provide a unique living opportunity on the sea where these villas are suspended over the crystal waters encircling the island.

These contemporary resort villas indulge the fortunate few with every amenity one could wish for in a home - a private beach, rooftop garden with spa pool, infinity pool, outdoor barbeque area, gourmet kitchen and concealed service quarters.

Nurai resort residents will also have access to all of the services and comforts provided by the boutique resort. In addition to the amenities of the contemporary hotel, which include three world class restaurants and multiple lounges, Nurai also offers a private helipad and marina with arrivals lounge, a fully equipped spa and fitness centre, private beaches and water sports facilities.
