Residents will have access to a wide range of recreational and wellness amenities, including an Olympic-size infinity pool with private cabanas and Jacuzzis, a state-of-the-art family gymnasium, a yoga pavilion, and an outdoor winter cinema. The project also features social amenities, such as a BBQ and private dining areas, residents’ lounge and business centre, as well as indoor and outdoor children’s play areas. The amenities are nested within a wealth of organic landscape and great lawns, offering the perfect environment for residents and owners to relax, unwind and enjoy quality time with their families and friends.

Deyaar is currently offering an exclusive launch promotion for Regalia, which includes a three-year service charge waiver and a full DLD waiver. Investors and homebuyers can register and complete all purchase formalities with an initial upfront payment of just 10 per cent and enjoy an attractive and flexible seven-year installment plan.
