Al Barari
Updated: 27th November, 2022

Al Barari

Seclusion and opulence with botanic hideaways, landscaped lakes and freshwater streams. An address which must be seen to be believed.
Al Barari
Al Barari is an area located within DubaiLand, Dubai.
The developer
The project is being developed by Abwab Real Estate Ltd.
Amenities will include a fitness centre, gourmet restaurant and a swimming pool.

Al Barari is a lush, green, opulent gated community in Nad Al Sheba on Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road. This project set out to recreate a European garden in the desert, indeed the name itself means ‘the wilderness’. That it succeeds is a testament to the vision of its creator, Zaal Mohammed Zaal, who lives on the estate with members of his family who manage the gardens and facilities.

Eighty percent of the development has been reserved for carefully tended themed gardens, botanic hideaways, naturally landscaped lakes and freshwater streams. Set among the gardens are 217 high-end luxury villas, each with its own swimming pool, terraces and private garden.

Three more recent phases complete the Al Barari projet. Ashjar is a group of 21 mega villas in similarly landscaped surroundings but spaced further apart; Seventh Heaven, a stylish seven storey complex of 157 apartments; and The Nest, a collection of 99 four bedroom villas set in a forest environment, each one designed to blend indoor and outdoor living, with an outdoor shower, barbeque area and infinity edge pool.

The Residences, as the 189 grand luxury villas are known, are set out in leaf shaped clusters and have been designed in four different styles: Acacia, Bromellia, Camellia and Dahlia. The architecture is a mix of Islamic and contemporary idioms, and interior and exterior spaces merge together to enhance the outdoor living experience. Sizes range from five to seven bedrooms.

The complex features differently themed botanical gardens with waterways, bridges and paths.

As the salesmen say, ‘This is an address which must be seen to be believed.’
