Bromellia in Al Barari - The Best Contemporary Villa in Dubai

Written by Arpan Ghosh
Luxury takes many forms and is very much in the eye of the beholder. In terms of design, luxury brings to mind ornate gold chandeliers dripping with crystals, rich leather armchairs that are almost too precious to actually sit in, or perhaps priceless and one-of-a-kind paintings adorning every wall. For others, luxury is more spatial, and involves cavernous living rooms or full-floor bedrooms. This stunning Bromellia villa, located in the central Dubai community of Al Barari, transcends all subjective notions of luxury with an exterior and interior design that is nothing short of breathtaking. 

Spread over an immense 19,000 square foot plot, this awe-inspiring family home has been fully upgraded and features interior design courtesy of renowned Italian brands such as Visionnaire, Fendi and Minotti. Plush carpeting covers the living areas, sleek columns adorn the hallways and each of the six elegantly appointed bedrooms contains expansive walk-in closets and custom-crafted cabinetry.

The house contains a total of three kitchens, each with a unique bespoke design, custom fittings and countertops that are as much objets d’art as they are work spaces. Other highlights include a home gym so sophisticated that it looks like it ought to come with a monthly subscription, and not one but two 4K cinemas – one in the master bedroom and one in a private theatre room that is also equipped with 7.1 surround sound. It’s tempting to make every night movie night.  

The backyard infinity pool is perhaps the defining feature of the property, spanning 20 metres and encircled by gorgeous landscaping, stunning water features and custom-designed lighting. Lounge seating is spread out around the perimeter of the pool, including a sunken seating area with a fire pit and a covered dining space.

The villa is surrounded by abundant greenery, which adds another element of privacy, and provides a very scenic backdrop. In fact, over 60% of Al Barari’s landscape is green, which means that as you look out over the neighbourhood from the balcony or roof deck, you are bound to see more treetops than you will rooftops. The greenness of Al Barari doesn’t just lie in its foliage, however. A number of environment-friendly initiatives, from water treatment and recycling to solar harvesting and waste composting, help to keep the community sustainable as well as beautiful.
