  • Agreement further outlines Al Marjan Island’s emergence as a leading luxury destination

Dar Global, the London listed luxury international real estate developer, has announced a new partnership with Aston Martin. The collaboration will see the British ultra-luxury marque carefully craft interiors for an exquisite beachfront residential development in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates.

To be officially unveiled in May, the new development will be situated on the majestic Al Marjan Island. It is the first time Aston Martin’s internationally acclaimed design team has applied its renown to a real estate project in the GCC, building on successful brand collaborations in the United States and Japan.
To be strategically positioned on a pristine location near the highly anticipated Wynn Resort, the new residence, with interiors by Aston Martin, promises to bring the illustrious car marker’s signature blend of sophistication, elegance and high-performance to the property. Providing a unique fusion of luxury living and natural coastal beauty. The accompanying private beach gives way to scenic walking tracks and lush green spaces, with the bright lights of Dubai just an hour away. 

With a GDV of approximately US$250 million, the project is expected to be officially unveiled in May 2024 with construction due to be completed in 2028, in joint development with Aarvees Group.

With its exceptional natural beauty and world-class amenities, Al Marjan Island continues to attract discerning investors and residents seeking a luxurious lifestyle. The upcoming branded residences with interiors by Aston Martin promise to redefine luxury living in Ras Al Khaimah, setting a new standard of excellence in the region’s real estate landscape.

Arch. Abdulla Al Abdouli, CEO of Marjan, commented: "The introduction of a residence with interiors by Aston Martin on Al Marjan Island further enhances the appeal of our premier destination. This partnership reflects our commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences and reinforces Ras Al Khaimah's position as a leading real estate hub in the region."

Stefano Saporetti, Director of Brand Diversification at Aston Martin, commented: “The partnership between Aston Martin and Dar Global brings together two ultra-luxury lifestyle organisations with a shared passion for combining traditional craftsmanship with innovation and cutting-edge design. Marking Aston Martin’s very first real estate collaboration in the GCC, we are incredibly proud to have the opportunity to design ultra-luxury interiors for what we believe will be an unparalleled development in the emerging luxury destination of Al Marjan Island.”
