Each of the villas types are designed to preserve the traditional UAE culture and adhere to traditional family values incorporating six and seven bedrooms, two majlis spaces and accompanying service rooms, including a kitchen, laundry, store room and maid’s room.
Dari also opened a showcase Villa for the duration of two years which should help potential clients to realistically envision the home that the initiative can provide through their building, project management and post delivery services. These post delivery services include home furnishing deals with UAE certified global and local suppliers, interior design, landscaping, and maintenance services, all at negotiated and favorable rates.
As the first real estate company in the country to attempt to tackle this housing objective and meeting the UAE vision Manazel has received a certificate of appreciation from the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, and another from “Absher”.
