A meticulously designed 370-hectare coastal destination, AlJurf is a living sanctuary where residents have the opportunity to be a part of preserving their environment. Nestled within a nature reserve, the destination serves as an escape from the fast-paced lifestyle of the city and is built against a backdrop of stunning coastal views and immaculate beaches bordered by lush green forest.
In addition to being an area of great ecological significance, the destination is also an ideal vacation location, which will house the world-renowned wellness clinic and retreat – SHA Emirates. AlJurf will be home to SHA Wellness’s first Middle East clinic, with the destination exemplifying the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and aiming to become a leading light for health and wellness in the region.
