Aknan Villas
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Overview

Staying true to the meaning of the Arabic word “Aknanâ” which means shelter, Aknan Villas is an enclave of luxurious homes in AKOYA Oxygen. Generally referred to as AKOYA, the mother community is a project by the renowned estate developer, DAMAC Properties. Covering a surface area of 55-million sq. ft. of housing development, this community promotes a green ambiance and a health-positive environment. This neighborhood is part of an award-winning golf club development, Trump World Golf Club Dubai. The golf course was recognized as the Best Golf Course Development at the International Property Awards. This villa sub-community has 3-bedroom homes with private yards, beautiful aesthetics, and exceptional facilities. While the project isn’t fully completed, it is expected to be a major success. This is a quiet and calm neighborhood containing landscaped lawns, walkways, fountains, sprayers, and shooters. The covered areas vary from 1,696 sq. ft. to 1,800 sq. ft and the same for facilities. Each house comes with a covered parking area, a shared swimming pool, a private yard, and a terrace. If you put into account the abundance of available communal facilities, the covered area, and the amazing surroundings, the prices of properties would be considered somewhat low.
