Penthouse with Grand Residence Unveiled
Measuring an expansive 27,000 square feet, this penthouse epitomizes grandeur. However, it’s the over 13,000 square feet of outdoor space that truly sets it apart. An awe-inspiring private pool and unparalleled 360-degree vistas of the shimmering ocean further accentuate its allure.
Nestled at the tip of a pristine peninsula along Dubai’s most exclusive private beach, Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab is a triumph of architectural ingenuity. Designed by the acclaimed architect Shaun Killa, the resort exudes the aura of a majestic mega yacht, with tiered levels artfully replicating the bow of a ship.
