Ghantoot Beach Resort

Strategically located midway between downtown Dubai and downtown Abu Dhabi, Ghantoot Beach Resort presents a tremendous long-term development opportunity, as these two metropolitan areas continue to expand and develop. This wedge of land, set directly on the coast of the gulf, invites a unique design and development concept unequalled in the surrounding area – an oasis set apart from the high-density, high-energy development taking place in these two nearby cities. To create a development that feels unique in a very real way, the design team looked at what is lacking in surrounding properties and what natural features make this site special.

Working with MERAAS Development and SB Architects, EDSA provided the master plan for this dramatic and grand beach resort and community. The primary driver for the 700-acre resort is residential real estate. The development also consists of two hotels, a marina, marina village, entertainment district, and exclusive villa islands.
