Shaikh Holdings, a Dubai-based real estate investment and development company and developer of the award-winning Sanctuary Falls villa project, hosted a reception in honour of its first residents. The reception was held on site at the Sanctuary Falls show villa where the Shaikh Holdings team welcomed the new residents, senior management from Jumeirah Golf Estates, Arabtec Construction and representatives from its project team.

Speaking at the event, Imran Shaikh, CEO of Shaikh Holdings said: “We are delighted at achieving this significant milestone. Our focus has always been on the homeowner and it gives us great pleasure to welcome the first residents into the Sanctuary Falls community. We envisioned developing a flagship villa community for Dubai and are excited to see this dream turning into reality. We have continually improved the Sanctuary Falls proposition to make it one of the best villa communities in Dubai. This achievement has been the result of the hard work and dedication of our team and I congratulate everyone involved with the project.”

Guests were given a brief tour and presentation of the 97 villa project, taking in the project’s many innovative features including its luxurious finishes, quality marble and hardwood flooring, state-of-the-art home automation systems, basements, lifts, arrival fountains, resort style infinity pools, and fully landscaped gardens with majlis seating areas. With a few villas still available for sale, Sanctuary Falls is also the only project in Dubai that provides purchasers with the ability to customise their floor plans and interior finishes with the Shaikh Holdings’ bespoke villa team. These features have attracted a host of high profile residents including Bollywood celebrities such as Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who have chosen to make Sanctuary Falls their home.

Yousuf Kazim, CEO of Jumeirah Golf Estates commented: “I would like to congratulate Shaikh Holdings for having started delivery of the villas in Sanctuary Falls and we look forward to seeing many more residents move into the community in the coming months. The outstanding design and finishing quality executed by Shaikh Holdings is emblematic of the prestigious lifestyle that Jumeirah Golf Estates has to offer.”

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the prestigious championship is a world class sporting event and will be played this week from 19th to 22nd November 2015.
