Damac Hills 2 History

The project started out as a resurrection of the 2006 Tiger Woods-Dubai project originally proposed by Tatweer. Construction of the golf course and club house started but the project went on hold in 2009 due the global financial crisis before being cancelled entirely in 2011.

The land and the commercial agreement with Tiger Woods was bought up by Damac Properties in 2014 and re-branded as Akoya Oxygen.

The golf club was changed to 'Trump World Golf Club Dubai' with the course designed by world famous golf champion Tiger Woods. In 2006 Tiger Woods used his playing experience and extensive knowledge to launch Tiger Woods Design which has completed a number of prestigious projects in the US and Mexico. He introduced elements from some of the world’s finest golfing destinations to the 18-hole Championship course at Akoya Oxygen - from classic Scottish links courses to famous parkland courses in America and the sandbelt courses of Australia.

Stretching the limits of design, the Trump World Golf Club Dubai featured a 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art clubhouse, world-class restaurants and an expansive pro-shop, as well as the finest practice facilities complemented by PGA qualified teaching professionals. Residents and visitors would be able to explore the community via abra or monorail, and waterways flowed amongst buildings and meandered through the golf club, connecting the community.

Amenities were to include a luxury spa complex with outdoor showers and plunge pools, a yoga enclave inspired by the lotus flower, and an organic fresh market where residents could buy and sell fresh fruit and vegetables.

Later, a waterfront retail, hotel and leisure complex called Vista Lux was added to the project. The architect's drawings showed it would have been similar in style to the Madinat Jumeirah complex in Umm Suqeim.

In 2015 Damac announced a plan to build the region's first rainforest as part of the Akoya Oxygen community. The Dubai Rainforest was described as an educational and cultural dome designed to recreate the natural environment of rainforests. Visitors would be taken on a journey through the jungle, starting on ground level before climbing up into the canopy to learn about the habitat’s flora and fauna. They would then be able to fly through the treetops on a zip wire or just relax in the Rainforest Spa, with its hydrothermal treatments, rock pools and steam baths.

The Dubai Rainforest was due to be completed in time for Expo 2020, but the project was abandoned. A similar concept opened at Green Planet in City Walk in September 2016.

In 2019 the 'Oxygen' was dropped from the name and the community was referred to simply as 'Akoya'.

2021 Redesign

In June  2021 the Akoya community project was rebranded as 'Damac Hills 2' and a revised masterplan was released with a stronger focus on leisure amenities, summed up by the new slogan "More water, more sports, more fun."

The revised masterplan depicts a number of major changes, most notably the scrapping of the Tiger Woods-designed Trump Golf course to make space for a series of leisure 'towns' including many water-themed attractions and a comprehensive sports district with a cricket pitch, football pitch and basketball courts.

Around 50% of the former golf course is to be converted into leisure components and the remaining 50% is earmarked for future residential expansion. The huge Vista Lux complex has also been scrapped to provide land for additional villa communities.
