Durrat Al Bahrain is perhaps the kingdom’s most ambitious real estate project, a $4bn mixed-use development spread across 15 artificial islands. The six outer islands are crescent-shaped and house luxury communities centred around an artificial beach, while the project will also feature 3,000 residential apartments, 2,000 villas, an 18-hole golf course, a five-star resort and a water park.

The man tasked with bringing all of this together is Jassim Al Jowderi, although he can count on some heavyweight support: named after the ‘most perfect pearl’ in the Arabian Gulf, Durrat Al Bahrain is owned by the Government of Bahrain and
