The final tranche of the La Plage beachfront villas on The Pearl-Qatar, the US $2.5 billion island being reclaimed offshore the Qatari capital of Doha, have gone on sale
following a highly successful take-up of the two previous releases – La Plage West and La Plage
The final villa release – on La Plage East – consists of 105 individualistic properties which sit at the furthermost end of the Mediterranean-style island and come with
fabulous sea and city views of Qatar’s prestigious West Bay area.
“The attraction of La Plage East is that it is a rather secluded setting and yet in reality, just a short drive away from the island’s main centre, the Porto Arabia, and from
downtown Doha,” explained Nick Bashkiroff, Development Director, The Pearl-Qatar.
Demand for luxury beachfront properties on the rediscovered island has been high with the first 43 La Plage West villas selling out within a week of release and the 53 La
Plage Centrale taking just days to be allocated.
All three La Plage districts hug a meandering coastline and all the luxury island getaways have sweeping sea views.
“The buyers have a mixed profile, from individual investors within Qatar and the GCC, to institutional buyers from the Sub-continent, Europe and the wider Middle East,”
The Pearl-Qatar believes central to the success of villa sales was its tailor-made triple-option purchase plan allowing investors to buy a plot and build their dream homes,
have the developer build to an approved design or buy a property direct from the developer.
The La Plage villas, which are due for completion in the first half of 2006, all have their own private swimming pool and exclusive beach frontage. They come in six
Mediterranean design themes – Portofino, D’Este, San Marino, St. Tropez, Del Mar and Piaggi – and a range of styles from three to six bedrooms. The designs were
created by global design and project management consultants KEO International.
“The Mediterranean theme of the villas was adopted to reflect the brand essence of The Pearl-Qatar, which as an iconic asset for the country, is positioned as The Riviera
Arabia,” explained Bashkiroff.
“La Plage is a very prestigious address on an island which, in itself, offers the most glamorous location in the
Arabian [Persian] Gulf. The villas have been designed for investors who value spectacular locations and discreet style. They will feature the finest of materials to live up to the world-class delivery which is integral to The
