What makes it special

The luxury contemporary limited-edition water villas offer an unparalleled beachfront living experience.

They consist of a built-up area of 10,011 square feet/930 square meters with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. They sit on plot sizes of between 21,000 – 51,000 square foot.

The Water Villas are truly unique with their 360 degree terraces, floor to ceiling windows and roof top lounge/garden with infinity pool, multiple decks and barbeque area suitable for ‘al fresco’ dining or simply lazing in the sun whilst enjoying the panoramic views of the Ocean and Abu Dhabi sky line. Concealed service quarters and the latest technology allow for easy living.

Nurai offers unique, state of the art interiors, using only the finest carefully selected materials and finishes for its elegant, contemporary and integrated designs, enhancing every aspect of the Nurai experience and creating a lifestyle that revolves around a high appreciation of natural materials, such as sandstones, limestone, granites and hardwoods.

Every item is chosen in its best natural form and quality.

Premium furniture packages will be offered, comprising exclusive pieces including handcrafted leather couches and armchairs, hardwood and bronze tables, screens, stools, side tables, mirrors, bed heads among many others. The exceptional quality of the interior finishes will extend out onto the terraces where stone flag floors and swimming pools with infinity stone edges will be dressed in glass or marble tiles.

A shortage of properties of this caliber in the region means that investors can count on profitable returns and consistently high rental yields. This reiterates Zaya’s solid investment potential as an ultra-luxurious, ultra aspirational and exclusive private island community with built in long term equity appreciation.

The stirring, panoramic view through the endless glass walls of every residence are simply breathtaking.


Nurai is a natural island located northeast of Abu Dhabi and one kilometer from the shores of Saadiyat that will host the city’s cultural district (Louvres and Guggenheim Museum among other world class attractions). Part of the development is also a boutique luxury hotel with 60 suites.

Completion is planned for December 2011.

The Nurai island will host restaurants, lounges, a cigar bar, a private helipad, a large marina on the that can accommodate super yachts and a Spa and fitness center.

Nurai residents will have full access to all of the services provided by the boutique resort. One of the three planned restaurants on Nurai will be Siddharta restaurant by George V (creator of Buddha Bar).

The marina can accommodate 60 yachts and 3 super yachts up to 95 meters.

Both the Nurai boutique hotel and the Spa will be operated by a premium brand.

A rental programme will be offered to residence owners.
