AMMAN — Jordanians and visitors who are considering buying a second home can now view two-fully furnished mock-up villas at Marsa Zayed first private residential neighbourhood, Al Raha (Rest) Village.  

Following the recent inauguration of an on-site sales centre, Eagle Hills Jordan, an Abu Dhabi-based private real estate investment and development company, has announced the unveiling of two mock-up villas at Al Raha Village. 

"An exclusive selection of Al Raha Village’s residences is now available for preview", according to a company statement that was received by The Jordan Times on Monday. 

Eagle Hills Jordan encouraged existing and prospective homebuyers to visit the recently opened sales centre and villas to get a taste of the unique “at-home” lifestyle on offer at this transformative new addition to Aqaba, the statement said.

Commenting on the occasion, Alaa Batayneh, CEO of Eagle Hills Jordan, said: “Over the past year, we have made significant advances in the development of Al Raha Village, enjoying region-wide market penetration and exposure of progress that has been made.

Al Raha Village, spreading over an area of 185,000 sq.m., will be home to more than 400 residential units including different styles of apartments, villas, and townhouses equipped with the latest amenities.

The village presents a relaxed lifestyle that appeals to families seeking both first and second homes in Jordan’s port city. 

Equipped with facilities providing daily essentials and more, families will feel well-catered to while living in this inclusive gated community, which includes a three-storey central clubhouse — with a fully equipped gym, contemporary outdoor terrace and swimming pool, upscale restaurant and lounge — playgrounds, parks and various children’s play areas, according to the company's statement. 

Marsa Zayed, which was named in memory of the Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, is located in the city centre of Aqaba with a total area of 3.2 million square metres including 2km prime waterfront.

It is a mega mixed-use waterfront project, envisaging high-rise residential towers, retail, recreational, entertainment, business and financial districts, and several branded hotels, with an eye to transforming Aqaba into a bustling centre of commerce and tourism.

Besides its serving as a calm haven, the Port city of Aqaba is considered a great place for water activities such as snorkelling and diving, according to many visitors.


Aqaba serves as a tourist attraction throughout the year, so many Jordanian and tourists choose to buy a second home there, either as an investment or for family gatherings.
