Dubai-based real estate company Samana Developers has launched two projects – Dhs320 million Santorini and Mykonos luxury residential projects in Dubai Studio City. The design and name inspiration of the new projects reflect the popular two islands in Greece – Santorini and Mykonos in Aegean Sea.
At the start of 2023, Samana Developers announced its bullish outlook for 2022 and its plans for the launch of 12 new projects in 2023, including five-star properties. Santorini and Mykonos are the first two projects out of 12 that have been planned for this year.
“We promised new concepts and bringing them to reality. That’s what we commit every time. Just like our trendsetting private swimming pool and resort lifestyle concepts in residential apartments, we going to create an island design and feel in new projects. Covid-19 outbreak prompted us to go for the island designs where people live in a healthy and sustainable environment. We are receiving exponential demand for these types of properties that focus on the wellbeing of residents,” said Imran Farooq, Chief Executive Officer of Samana Developers.
“In the designs of our Santorini and Mykonos projects, we incorporated the environmental features that make the projects good for health, sustainable and also energy efficient. At Samana Mykonos we have added plenty of water features, green areas and the solar panels for in-house power generation. In addition, we have created an island-style living where the water, fresh air and plantation will be aplenty. Island-living is a new concept in Dubai real estate that European buyers love and feel at home with,” Farooq added.
