The first beachfront villas on the Sweden Island in The Heart of Europe (THOE) on the World islands in Dubai is getting ready.
In a statement emailed to Emirates 24|7, Kleindienst, the developer of project, said the first show villa was close to completion with work having reached roof level.
“Once complete, it will be furnished by Bentley Home,” the developer said.
Sweden Island is one of six islands which make up THOE, which will be home to 10 seven-bedroom beachfront villas with a Scandinavian design. The completion for all the villas is estimated during the year.
Each villa will features seven ensuite bedrooms, a snow and sauna room, floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive balconies, a gym and spa, a private infinity pool and landscaped gardens. Owners will have the option to incorporate a customized party and chill-out floor.
The design of the villa, by architect Carlo Colombo, are based on the inverted Swedish Viking vessels. The roof of each villa will resemble the upturned hull of a Viking ship.
In August 2015, we reported that the company had put the price of the each villa at Dh55 million.

“St Petersburg Island has now been re-designed into the shape of a heart, taking inspiration from The Maldives and some of the world’s finest holiday resorts,” Kleindienst Group Chairman Josef Kleindienst had told this website.
