ABOUT AKNAN VILLAS
Staying true to the essence of the Arabic word “Aknan” meaning “shelter,” Aknan Villas is an enclave of luxurious houses in AKOYA Oxygen. Generally referred to as AKOYA, the parent community is a project by the renowned estate developer, DAMAC Properties. 55-million sq. ft. residential development promotes a “green” ambiance and healthy environment.
Aknan Villas are part of an award-winning golf club development, Trump World Golf Club Dubai. The golf course was recognised as the Best Golf Course Development at the International Property Awards.
This villa sub-community has 3-bedroom houses with private yards. Moreover, it has beautiful aesthetics and offers exceptional facilities. While the project isn’t fully completed, it is predicted to be a huge success. Therefore, property values are expected to increase once the community plan reaches completion.
