Defining high-end living, Al Bandar has been designed for peaceful living, providing a calming, tranquil ambience
away from the hustle and everyday stresses of the city. As we strolled through the magnificent Entrance Gardens
our first impression was what a fabulously dramatic approach to Al Bandar – a high-end residential village, with
luxurious waterfront residential apartment complexes, a retail and public marina forming a transit centre for jet
cabs, water taxis and abras. Al Bandar consists of luxury apartments, townhouses and villas embraced by waterside
restaurants, an exclusive beach area and the community represents a mix of approximately 60 different nationalities
living harmoniously alongside each other in one of the most desirable residential settings in Abu Dhabi. Within
the five buildings from which one can rent or buy – Naseem A, B and C, the Barza Loft and Manal Tower, first-class
state-of-the-art accommodation provides luxurious facilities that include a concierge service, 24-hour security and
customer service, a free-form pool and lap pools, a Jacuzzi, clubhouse, gym, squash courts, saunas, crèche, reading, TV
and games rooms so you get some idea of the lifestyle you could expect in Al Bandar. Designed for professionals and
families, these luxury residences place residents close to everything Abu Dhabi has to offer. Set around an expansive
central water feature, marine life is a significant feature and all the apartments benefit from breathtaking sea views. As
one of the focal points for marine, leisure and family activities in the community, all amenities are within convenient
reach in a calming community offering retail outlets, coffee shops, beauty salons and a pharmacy. In an informal social
setting, small intimate performance areas offer street entertainment by day and atmospheric music into the evening.
This is the ultimate peaceful environment where residents and visitors can stroll along the canals, shop in the Market
Village or Market Garden or simply set out on a luxury yacht to get away from it all. This exquisite island in the sun
is set to become a highly sought-after residential island, offering a truly luxurious environment in which to live, work
or simply do as we did and while away a few gloriously relaxed hours – highly recommended!
Occupying a significant area of Al Raha Beach, the Al Bandar community sits on the coast north
of Abu Dhabi Island with wonderful views across a small harbour to Yas Island and links back
to the mainland via a bridge. Aldar’s luxury development project in Al Bandar has created a
community set amongst landscaped lawns, water fountains, tennis courts, swimming pools and
a bustling marina.
