Nakheel has announced the opening of Al Furjan Club, the 10th property in its expanding portfolio of community clubs and restaurants.

The UAE-based developer said in a statement that the dining and leisure complex, located within Dubai’s Al Furjan residential district, is the latest project under its $1.4bn (AED5bn) hospitality expansion programme.

According to Nakheel, the project features a restaurant that can seat up to 150 people, a 25m lap pool, a children’s pool, a sports court, a fully equipped gym with four fitness studios, and a parking facility that can accommodate up to 300 cars, as well as a mosque that is under construction.

Commenting on the opening of the property, Thorsten Ries, managing director of Nakheel Hospitality, said: “We are proud to add Al Furjan to our expanding collection of community clubs, which have become an integral element of our developments across Dubai.

“Al Furjan Club bears all the hallmarks of our establishments: a convenient location, quality casual family dining, and the best in health and fitness amenities. We expect this new venue to be highly popular with members and guests, who now have a new destination for eating, relaxing, socialising, and keeping in shape at this popular, fast-growing community.”

The Al Furjan development will be home to more than 65,000 people upon completion, Nakheel added, noting that its current population exceeds 5,000.

The developer revealed that it has “dozens more” in its pipeline of community clubs and restaurants.
