The Falcons came into the game as slight favourites having not lost in the group stages. The game was tight early on as both teams struggled to find a flowing rhythm, but it was the Dubai Falcons who nudged infront at the half leading 4-2.
The Falcons kept the 2 goal lead heading into the final chukka where they exploded into life scoring 4 unanswered goals, finishing off 9-3 winners.

hreadneedle Gold Cup – Semi Finals

The first semi final of the day saw Ghantoot taking on Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi, undefeated in the group stages, were looking to carry on the good form they showed in the group stages, thanks to some excellent play from Facundo Sola.
Indeed it was Abu Dhabi who gained early control with 2 early goals. It became a story of missed chances for Ghantoot as they could not convert the chances they had, with Abu Dhabi being far more clinical in front of goal running out 7-4 winners.

Nurai Private Villas in Abu Dhabi

Zaya, a dynamic newly-formed Abu Dhabi-based real estate company launched a Dh3 billion property venture called Nurai – a spectacular private community of limited edition resort beach-front estates and water villas on a natural island off the coast of Abu Dhabi.

Located northeast of Abu Dhabi, the project is set in isolation away from the hustle and bustle of city life yet is within minutes from the mainland. CEO Nadia Zaal confirmed that 50 pr cent pf the project has been sold out within three weeks and the rest of the units would be released at later stage. Set to be completed by December 2010, according to CEO, the project being developed on a scenic natural Island will set a new bench-mark for luxurious and high-end realty projects.” Prices range between AED 35 million to AED 110 million per unit depends upon the size and location of the unit. 

Zaal said: “Zaya has a passion for creating unique lifestyle solutions that goes beyond bricks and mortar. Using our unique understanding of the clientele and refusing to be bound by convention, Nurai is the most stylish contemporary living experience in the world”. Nurai is the beginning for Zaya’s collection of unique projects designed solely based on market research and the discerning clientele’s aspiration in mind. Extensive research concluded that there is a shortage in this kind of sophisticated projects and means that Zaya will remain focused on the high end of the market with plans for expansion into the Middle East, Asia and Europe being announced shortly.

She added: “On Nurai, you can have your own piece of paradise and still be just minutes from Abu Dhabi. On this incredibly lush island, you will find a distinctive collection of limited edition resort beachfront estates and water villas, along with all the services and comforts of a world class boutique resort.”

“The design concept of the island stemmed from Zaya’s desire to provide residents with abundant pieces of land and ultimate privacy. Three strands of Water Villas extend into the ocean, and Nurai’s Beachfront Estates are integrated into the gently scoping landscape. A carpet of greenery unfolds across the island, with sweeping structures underneath to envelop residents in their own world of private luxury. Island feels untouched as majority of land is landscaped lush greenery as opposed to populated with buildings.”

Discerning clientele interested in resort beachfront estates will have their choice of two designs -‘The Shoreline’ or ‘The Seaside’.  The Shoreline estates will consist of six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, private beach and rooftop garden with a total build area of 12,275 square feet. Similar in size, but with five bedrooms and six baths, will be The Seaside estates. No detail has been overlooked. Each resort residence includes luxurious amenities such as a private beach and garden, infinity swimming pool, concealed service quarters and outdoor showers.

Zaya LLC is a joint venture between Tasameem and Assas Real Estate, whose portfolio is in excess of $15 billion, formed to create a distinct rand of iconic property developments.
