The most expensive villa in Abu Dhabi has been listed for sale as the off-plan property market in the UAE capital continues to witness strong growth.

The AED98 million ($26.7 million) villa, located in the Ohana by the Sea coastal development between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, is scheduled to be handed over in the fourth quarter of 2025.

The 32,000 square foot, seven-bedroom beachfront property will offer private beach access. It will have three living rooms, two salons, a home office, three private gardens with direct beach access, a terrace, two maids’ rooms and a driver and guard’s room.

It also includes swimming pools and finishings by Elie Saab Maison.

“The city has seen a significant increase in demand for luxury properties in recent years, and prices are expected to continue their upward trajectory,” said Evgeny Ratskevich, CEO of Metropolitan Capital Real Estate, which has exclusively listed the property.

Ohana by the Sea is a development consisting of 45 villas at the Dubai and Ghantout border.
