Coral Island Resort is a 210 room luxury resort hotel and 351 room branded residential development situated on Nakheel's 'The World' islands development, off the coast of Umm Suqiem, Dubai. The tropically themed development will involve the formation of two islands; one for the luxury resort and one for the residential development. A marina and village centre will be positioned between the two developments and is envisaged as the heart of the development. Guests will be transported by luxury boat tenders from the guest welcome centre on the mainland to the resort. Faithful+Gould will be providing commercial services, including cost management and quantity surveying services. The hotel island is a high end ‘Maldives-style' hotel, and will consist of beach and water bungalows, a spa, sports facilities, beach club, and retail space. Additional food and beverage outlets will be located in the marina hotel and within the marina village. The marina will be themed to resemble a Mediterranean port village like Port Grimaud in the Bay of St.Tropez.
