Al Reef Villas
A desert city normally signals something rather desolate (think Shamkah or Shawamekh), but Al Reef Villas, located on the outskirts of Hydra Village, is another shiny new development. It also offers 198-year leases to expats (as if 99 years were just not enough). Divided into four differently styled communities: desert and Arabic (handed over by December 2009), and contemporary and Mediterranean (handed over by December 2010). Meanwhile, the central area is set to be the location for a shopping district.
Two-bedroom villas from Dhs1.3 million-Dhs1.8 million; three-bedroom villas from Dhs1.5million-2.6 million.
