About The Pearl Qatar Island
The Pearl Qatar, a multi-billion dollar mixed-use urban development admired as Doha's "Riviera Arabia", offers residents and visitors the ultimate luxury and lifestyle experience.
The Pearl Qatar occupies a prime location off the coast of Doha's West Bay and boasts an assortment of residential accommodations for every taste and style. High-end retail and lavish hospitality, three world-class marinas and an impressive beachfront have made UDC's flagship development the most glamorous address in the Middle East.
What was once a shallow seabed, a site for pearl-diving, has in five short years transformed Doha's coastline, creating a place where dreams and reality become one. Four million square meters of reclaimed land, along with 32 kilometers of new seafront, will soon add up to about 50,000 residents occupying a variety of luxury accommodations.
The Island was the first development in Qatar to offer freehold and residential rights to international clients. From across the globe, buyers and investors have capitalized on the project's potential. World-class architecture, luxurious amenities and aesthetic details exude old-world charm and the best in modern living. The result is as much a destination as it is an experience, blending residential charm with the comfort of an exclusive resort.
Development of The Pearl Qatar's 12 precincts is well underway. Upon completion, approximately 19,000 residential dwellings will be in use on the Island.
The epitome of Riviera Arabia living, and home to The Pearl Qatar's main harbor, Porto Arabia combines elegant towers and townhouses in a spectacular location. The Island's first phase is set around a colorful waterfront - La Croisette - a lively 2.5 kilometer pedestrianized concourse lined with fine shopping and dining, its architecture inspired by the best French, Italian and Spanish architecture. Porto Arabia will be home to elegant residential towers lining a Riviera-like boardwalk around the 400-boat slip marina. The bustling quayside is destined to become a cruising base for the region, as well as a convenient spot to board exclusive boats serving every corner of The Pearl Qatar.
Featuring luxurious amenities and a truly Mediterranean ambience, Croisette townhomes sit on the marina's edge and offer superb views.
A dynamic shopping, dining and residential district is characterized by a boulevard-style cafe culture. The focal point is the Arabian Piazza, an exotic destination with an exciting international blend of chic retail and dining. From luxury vehicle dealerships and bespoke jewelers to fresh-from-the-catwalk designer wear, this mall showcases the very finest shopping experience in the finest of settings.
The festive center of Porto Arabia is Ras Croisette, complete with late-night restaurants and lounges for year-round entertainment. This area, with its world-class clubs and discerning crowd, is not just the nightlife hub of The Pearl Qatar, but also for the immediate region.
At the very heart of Porto Arabia lies the Marsa Arabia island. Accessed via a causeway, this picturesque 'island-within-an-island' will feature an exclusive Four Seasons hotel serving Qatar's business and leisure travellers.
In magnificent style, Porto Arabia captures the sophisticated essence of the Riviera. Conducive to the highest standards of living, it is reminiscent of a continental harbor, yet positively alive with Arabian warmth and charm.
Complete with its own stretch of pristine white sand gently lapped by a warm, inviting sea, Viva Bahriyah is perfect for families and those seeking a more relaxed locale.
Architecturally themed to echo the very best of the Maghreb - with Moroccan-styled town homes and apartments exuding Moorish elegance - it features a recreational central island crowned by a magnificent luxury hotel. A haven for watersports enthusiasts, whilst quieter than neighboring precincts, there is never a dull moment at this enviable beachfront location.
Home to soaring towers that ring a landscaped marine promenade, as well as exquisitely designed townhomes and chalets with easy beach access, the relaxed atmosphere here is so easy to enjoy. At Viva Bahriyah, you're never far from the bustling heart of The Pearl Qatar: although you'll find restaurants and 200 marina berths just a stone's throw away.
Conveniently located near the middle of the Pearl Qatar island, getting to and from Viva Bahriyah - particularly by water taxi - is little short of a breeze. Viva Centrale, accessed by a central causeway, is the jewel in the precinct's crown, showcasing not just the finest hotel facilities, but also a range of other activities for the whole family to enjoy.
The residences themselves are nothing less than inspiring, with panoramic views to the Gulf and surrounding areas, and generous areas for entertaining and simply unwinding. Offering the only true beachfront condominium living in the Middle East, Viva Bahriyah stands proud as the most desirable family living close to the buzz of neighboring districts. Although the beach makes it ideal for those with children, anyone can cast their cares aside in the ambience of this unique location.
Whether walking barefoot along the beach at sunset, or navigating the calm waters on a sailboard, you'll agree that whilst Viva Bahriyah is close to everything, there's always the feeling that you're somehow away from it all. Never has this kind of beachside apartment and townhouse living been quite so accessible to anyone who appreciates a more relaxed pace of life.
The exclusive marine bay area known as Costa Malaz is an oasis of calm and quiet luxury. Both architecture and landscaping evoke the atmosphere of a tropical island in this area of outstanding beauty,
A luxury hotel situated on an islet, Marsa Malaz, in the center of the bay, will set a new standard for exclusive health and fitness retreats. This sanctuary comprises individual luxury family beach villas on larger-than-average plots, each elegantly arranged around the bay and its headlands.
Overlooking an extensive harbor entirely bordered by a 'natural' beach, privacy and spaciousness were design imperatives for the much sought-after homes at Costa Fayrouz. The resulting villas, fusing many styles of island-inspired architecture, exist in a haven set in tropical paradise.
Each villa offers direct access to the beach, which is raised above the high tide level with entry to the sea via continuous concrete steps around the entire cove.
Fanar Fayrouz enjoys the same spacious opulence of Costa Malaz but with the added draw of incredible views across the Arabian Gulf. Warm breezes and uninterrupted vistas make Fanar Malaz another truly delightful area, a place to comfortably create the ultimate waterside home. Marsa Malaz - the exclusive hotel island in the center of Costa Malaz - is fringed by pristine sand, and provides an elegant retreat with delightful views, privacy and seclusion. Plots within this precinct are larger than in similar locations, with villas in excess of 2,000m2 developed in Polynesian style, a theme that will be extended to the Marsa Malaz hotel located in the very heart of this idyllic bay.
Like Viva Bahriyah, this exclusive residential cove is accessible to small watercraft and provides links from Qanat Quartier and Porto Arabia in addition to sea access from the north.
The jewels in The Pear-Qatar's crown, these nine independent islands represent the most inspired and aspirational living at one of the world's most spectacular addresses.
A string of individual private islands, Isola Dana offers the largest residential plots within The Pearl Qatar. Accessed via their own causeway, they enable investors to style their own residences as they choose in a setting that is beyond compare.
Named after the world's most rare and valuable perfect pearls, Isola Dana is set apart from the main body of The Pearl Qatar to afford privacy and discreet independence. Palatial homes will adorn these exquisite 18,000m2 (average) islands, the likes of which cannot be seen anywhere in the Middle East, and rarely throughout the world.
Each island has its own expansive beach and a protected harbour for yachts or motor cruisers. The entire complex is served by an access channel dredged to -4.0m to facilitate free passage to larger private vessels.
Isola Dana is approached from the extreme southeastern tip of The Pearl Qatar, initially via a bridge spanning a navigable channel. Beyond the bridge, an access causeway runs between the various islands to the east and to the west, linking them via branch causeways. A gatehouse located at the western end of the causeway will ensure security is maintained for Isola Dana's strictly limited number of VIP residents in this unique precinct.
With its own dedicated beach and landscaped gardens, Abraj Quartier is the perfect environment for those seeking more spacious surroundings. Located at the gateway to The Pearl Qatar, the apartments enjoy exceptional aspects towards the mainland across the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf. Decidedly Mediterranean-influenced, each residence is a definitive statement of cosmopolitan style in a quieter setting away from the bustling port - yet within easy reach of amenities and Doha city. Defined by its magnificent towers, Abraj Quartier features spectacular apartments and townhouses in all manner of configurations, as well as sophisticated office premises.
At 42-storeys, two of these buildings are The Pearl Qatar's tallest structures. Crowned by their 'Pearl' architectural features, they create a striking arrival experience. Over 250 residential units as studio, one-, two-, or three-bedroom configurations plus three- and four-bedroom penthouses will be available. In addition, there are just over 200 townhouses in varying sizes to exactly match the gently curving nature of the shoreline and boardwalk. Each 'parcel' within the precinct is self-contained, with separate road access, dedicated services and ample parking.
The boardwalk running along the beachfront on the north side of the Quartier forms a common amenity space for all residents to enjoy. With commanding views, secluded spots and easy access to both the mainland and The Pearl Qatar's excellent facilities, Abraj Quartier is a highly desirable precinct in a convenient, much sought-after location.
Immediately to the south of Medina Centrale lies the Perlita Gardens precinct, a mixed villa, townhouse, and apartment development in a secluded environment. Lush landscaping gives the impression of living in the heart of a natural environment, while the exclusive luxurious amenities for Perlita Residents will provide beautiful aspects and the opportunity to pursue numerous activities.
As you would expect in a precinct of this scale, there is plenty of space to move around. Gated communities of villas, townhouses, and apartments make up the residences in the so-called "garden" precincts, which border the fringes of Viva Bahriyah.
Despite being focused on landscaped living, pristine beaches are never far away, making this a truly unique location with the very best of all worlds for discerning investors.
Carefully positioned amidst lush, landscaped parkland and picturesque lakes, Giardino Villas is a highly prized residential district. Spacious homes nestle in beautifully arranged gardens shaded by trees, and colorful foliage contrasts with panoramic views out to sea and across to the mainland.
Nestling north of Viva Bahriyah, investors here are never far from excellent local shopping and dining, with all the amenities of the Pearl Croisette close to hand.
In common with other precincts in the "garden" districts, a wealth of clubhouses, sports and other leisure facilities will be available. Paths and tracks will make exploring the landscaped areas easy, making it a haven for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors whilst never straying too far away from world-class amenities.
With its colorful Venetian character, Qanat Quartier is carefully planned around intricate canals and pedestrian-friendly squares and plazas. Each waterway is spanned by stylish bridges, which further evoke the soul of Italian romantic living. This precinct, although following the Mediterranean theme of the development as a whole, has a totally distinct and unique atmosphere, with canal-front townhouses and apartments overlooking secluded piazzas. The concept is to create a waterfront village reminiscent of the best of Venice and Amsterdam, but with a unique festival atmosphere of its own.
Edged by sandy bays embracing the Arabian Gulf, the Qanat Quartier is an intriguingly complex area in which a true Riviera lifestyle can be enjoyed. Boutique-style shopping adds to the intimate village feel and provides a heart for the community that thrives there. An art gallery and sumptuous designer hotel have also been earmarked for this vibrant quarter. Proximity to water is a feature of all townhouses, with many enjoying direct views over the beach and some even featuring roof gardens. Apartments from one to three bedrooms and exclusive penthouses are available, with blocks featuring many individual touches and Venetian-style colors that really set them apart.
Beach and marina buildings have been specially designed to support the vibrant marine community. A sailing clubhouse, architecturally themed after elements of the Tuscan countryside, will create a focal point for residents and visitors alike.
Every building has been strategically developed to maximize space and provide the best possible views. Car parking has been intelligently planned and located largely out of sight to preserve the integrity of the precinct. Whilst accessible, the whole area retains an air of 'discovery', with a layout that encourages residents to explore. Additional facilities are provided by a hotel located on its own island fronting the beach.
Pedestrian-oriented, Qanat Quartier is an inspired area featuring stylized fountains, cobblestone courtyards and even citrus trees to create truly spectacular locations in neighborhoods of exceptional character and quality.
As its name suggests, Medina Centrale is the 'town centre' of The Pearl Qatar, offering a very different residential, shopping and leisure experience compared to other precincts. Essentially a low-rise development based around a town square and adjacent streets, it will feature numerous parks and open spaces, all of which will link and serve nearby residential areas and make for both a lively environment and a place for celebrations. In addition to the nearby stores and restaurants of Porto Arabia, there'll be a central shopping zone with a full range of retail and community services (TBC: anticipate a post office, supermarket, banks etc).
A huge selection of food and beverage outlets will be located in the central plaza and along the major north-south boulevard within the development. As well as an exclusive yacht club and a spa at the marina, a handpicked selection of shops will serve the community in style. A multi-screen cinema and many other facilities are also planned, all within easy reach.
As well as supporting the broader community at The Pearl Qatar, Medina Centrale will serve as a prime residential area in its own right. One and two bedroom units are located above the retail zones in medium height blocks with views over the town square and beyond. Convenient parking will be provided close to all amenities.
With a buzz all of its own, Medina Centrale perfectly complements the other precincts at The Pearl Qatar, in addition to being a hugely desirable place to live.
Located east of Viva Bahriyah is one of the most prized locations on the island - Floresta Gardens.
Home to an estimated 1,400 residents, consisting of 285 apartments and 100 townhouses, this precinct's master concept revolves around a concentric introvert, coliseum style layout.
The core living center and soul of the Floresta Gardens community will be the "Club House" and the promenade around it.

Every magnificent property stands alone in semi-tropical gardens, which extend right down to embrace the sea. Each villa borders private beaches of exceptional quality, and many have dedicated mooring facilities for convenient access to personal yachts or cruisers.
The undulating profile of the coastline - meticulously planned in a way that only a purpose-built island can allow - has created a scheme that affords maximum privacy and unique aspects to each and every villa.
Such locations are rare in the world, and only at The Pearl Qatar will investors enjoy individual residences on an island of such exquisite beauty.
La Plage South
One of the premier locations within The Pearl Qatar, La Plage South is located at the southern tip of the Island, overlooking widespread beaches to the skyline of Doha in the distance. Taking advantage of the configuration of the shoreline, the plot has been developed in a series of semi circular apartment groupings, the five sea fronting blocks progressively step down from a maximum height of seven storeys to one storey and encapsulate outdoor recreational facilities incorporating extensive leisure pools and landscaping opening out onto the beaches.
In total there are just over 700 apartments in one, two and three bedrooms. Additionally, located at the entrance to this precinct is over 4000m of convenience shopping. The architecture is rich, with emphasis on facade diversity, Mediterranean colors, unique in detailing, large terraces and resort-like luxury. A terraced staggered design is used to enhance the "Human Scale" and maximize integration with the surroundings.
