“ Everyone knows The Palm and The World, Dubai’s artificial islands, but rare are those who have heard of The Pearl, the pharaonic artificial island project in Doha, Qatar. With the choice of Qatar to host the World Cup in 2022, The Pearl will certainly get media attention, once construction is completed, the project will offer 32 kilometers of new coastline to the country’s capital.
Consisting of 13 islands, The Pearl will host a 5 star hotel, many luxury apartments and villas, restaurants (Maze by Gordon Ramsay, Les Deux Magots, Bert’s …) and upscale boutiques (Hermes, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga …).
The essential point of interest to the project is that for the first time in Qatar, foreigners can legally be property owners. “
