Al Gurm Resort is a modern 5-star complex with all the essential amenities one would expect from an international development. The complex is located in the heart of the Al Gurm area, a suburb of Abu Dhabi. Al Gurm Resort is a master development by Aldar Properties and was commissioned back in May 2011. It includes 73 luxury villas and 163 suites in a high-end tourist resort. Because of its location, next to a mangrove forest, the community is home to many plants and birds, and the idea of creating eco-friendly housing has made it one of the best options for living in the UAE.
Facilities such as prayer rooms, playgrounds, a swimming pool, barbecue areas, as well as educational facilities and health clubs are all within walking distance. As for the real estate itself, there are only low-rise buildings, which creates a special atmosphere of tranquility and seclusion to nature, while being just 15 minutes’ away from the center of Abu Dhabi.
As previously mentioned, in addition to the residential properties, there are 163 five-star luxury suites on the site which are divided into several categories – waterfront and island villas that come in two different designs – Asian and Mediterranean architectural themes. Almost every villa has a private jetty for a boat that gives their own access to the Arabian Gulf.
One of the unique features of Al Gurm Resort is that it is surrounded by water. The area is located on the coast of the Arabian Gulf and the resort itself is made up of little pieces of land that are connected to each other.
Considering the transport accessibility of Al Gurm Resort, it is worth noting that public transport stops are quite limited – there is only one bus stop; №40, which is within walking distance, or you can take a taxi. On the other hand, car owners have an easy and convenient access to Al Khaleej Al Arabi St, where you can easily reach the center of the emirate, Al Mushrif Co-op or Mushrif Mall, Public Children’s Park, Dolphin Park as well as many other places. For car owners there are several parking lots and a garage with three parking spaces in each villa.
Within a 10-minute drive are the Embassy of Albania, Chile, Philippines, Arab Republic of Egypt, Jordan, United States, and the Embassy of India,.
There is not much entertainment actually in the development, as most of the sights and attractions are outside the complex. For example, the Al Gurm Plaza shopping center is only a 10-minute walk away, as is the Al Gurm CrossFit gym.
Al Gurm Resort is a mix of residential and resort properties with a tranquil atmosphere, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city which makes it the most desirable investment destination. Even after ten years when the first properties were launched for sale at Al Gurm Resort, the area remains a popular destination for property investment with an average ROI of 3%.
Currently available for purchase are 4-7 bedroom villas, ranging in size from 15,000 to 22,000 sq. ft. priced from AED 18,000,000 (USD 4,900,000). A one-of-a-kind seven-bedroom villa of 15,012 sq. ft is located in the first row, on the sea. This unique property costs AED 26,000,000 (USD 7,079,000).
The costly purchase price is due to the fact that villas have their own boat dock, waterfront, infinity pool, outdoor terrace, spacious kitchens and living rooms, as well as having a study room, shared gym and spa, a private garden, a laundry room, and maid’s quarters (for 4 people).
Those interested in renting can consider such options as a 16,700 sq. ft. 4-bedroom, 6-bathroom villa with a private pool at a price of AED 650,000 (USD 177,000) a year or a 7-bedroom, 13,127 sq. ft. villa from AED 1,000,000 (USD 272,300) a year.
