Dubawi Island Overview

Dubawi is a private man-made island situated off the south beach of the Palm Jumeirah. Its shape is a mirror image of Logo Island on the opposite side of the Palm but, unlike Logo Island, Dubawi Island remained undeveloped.

In 2017, all existing plans for the island were scrapped and it was amalgamated into the wider Dubai Harbour project to be used as a land for the Emaar Beachfront development.

Dubawi Island is owned by Zabeel Investments, a real estate and investment holding company owned by Dubai's crown prince, Hamdan bin Mohammed al-Maktoum.

Land reclamation for the island was completed in 2005 and a hospitality development project was launched in 2007 under the name 'Signature Island', but plans were put on hold when the developer ran into financial difficulties. The island remains undeveloped to this day.

Construction History

The island was built by the Dutch engineering firm Van Oord between June 2003 and February 2005 in parallel with the Palm Jumeirah construction. Over four million cubic metres of sand and a million tonnes of rock were used in the project which includes wave breaks, an underwater reef, a 270-metre-long quay wall and small beaches. At a later date access channels were dredged to enable large yachts to reach the island.

Dubawi Island however remains undeveloped other than the marking out of various villa plots during a short construction burst in 2009.

Masterplan

In 2011 designs for a luxury hotel & leisure development on the island were released by architects Gianni Ranaulo Design. The designs depicted an array of luxury hospitality elements including a horse riding beach, a wellbeing anti-ageing spa, a luxury resort, exclusive beach-front cottages, a Dragone sunset theatre, a luxury marina, a yacht club with fashion show facilities, a fashion district, a VIP room and entertainment district, water villas and a sunset view park with a romantic promenade. It remains to be seen whether or not these plans will materialise.
