Tilal Al Ghaf is the master community developed by Majid Al Futtaim and is located next to the crossroads of Sheikh Zayed Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street and Hessa Street. The neighbourhood is set around Al Ghaf Lagoon and includes several sub-communities which have retail outlets, education institutions, dining options and leisure precincts. The residential communities comprises high-end villas, townhouses and family-friendly apartment buildings. Tilal Al Ghaf is an ongoing project, which is being delivered in phases and scheduled for final handover by 2027.
The entire area of Tilal Al Ghaf spans across 742 acres and houses 6,500 residential units in total. The lagoon occupies about 18 acres and offers a 5,000-mile waterfront with a sandy beach that stretches for over 1,300 ft. Open-air recreational zones feature walking/running trails.
The Tilal Al Ghaf concept follows the idea that “we belong to nature” and is reflected in its energy-saving technologies vastly implemented across the community, the abundant green spaces, coupled with an array of amenities for outdoor activities. All of these elements offer an excellent healthy environment for all generations and families of any size.
Majid AI Futtaim has been operating in the real estate market since it was founded in 1992, and as of today, it is one of the real estate industry leaders with a very diverse portfolio. The company works with retail, residential and leisure development projects and its geography spans far beyond the countries of the Middle East, with projects in Asia and Africa. Apart from Tilal Al Ghaf, Majid AI Futtaim has three more residential communities located in Sharjah, Oman and Lebanon, as well as 17,000 residential units in the pipeline. Designed with the future in mind, its developments provide an integrated lifestyle to thousands of families across the globe.
The neighbourhoods of Tilal Al Ghaf will have a community center, conveniently placed stores and cafes, mosques and nurseries, along with swimming pools and fitness clubs. The development also features parks and multiple green open spaces dotted around the community, as well as the central lagoon with gorgeous sandy beaches.
The central park offers multiple opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors all-year-round, as there are picnic lanes with BBQ stations and water-themed playgrounds for kids. Visitors and residents can attend fitness sessions, bootcamps, games and walks around the outdoor markets, and the scenic amphitheater overlooking the lagoon hosts the occasional community event, including music festivals, an open-air cinema, plus many more.
The Lagoon with the Hive beach is an ideal place to top up your tan and practise watersports. Residents and visitors can swim and sunbathe as well as try their hand at kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding and playing volleyball on the sandy court.
Promoting health and fitness is one of Majid AI Futtaim’s core values, and Tilal Al Ghaf is no different, as the community’s master-plan includes a 36,089-ft cycling track and a 59,055-ft walking trail which winds around the site.
Tilal Al Ghaf is a gated community, facilitated with a comprehensive security network with CCTV cameras and 24/7 security. There is no shortage of public parking spaces either, as each unit has a dedicated garage. A valet parking service is also available for residents and visitors.

Tilal Al Ghaf is a family-friendly community that is nestled away from the overcrowded tourist parts of Dubai, but still has a distinct resort feel, offering maximum privacy and comfort along with good road connectivity to the rest of Dubai. It is especially popular among high-end individuals, looking for a serene luxury lifestyle in a detached home. Many of the Tilal Al Ghaf properties have already been sold, so not many units remain available. Upon the completion of the project, the community will be in high demand among renters who are working in the central parts of the city but want to escape the hustle and bustle to a more quiet environment inspired by nature. The parks and the recreational lagoon with its white sandy beaches are all right on the doorstep of the development, and will add lasting value to the properties in Tilal Al Ghaf. There aren’t many things in life that can rival the stunning green surroundings and water features, but Tilal Al Ghaf certainly tries, by bringing balance to our contemporary digital living age.
The pandemic has changed common trends in our social life, including distant working or working from home. Many people now thrive on spacious housing that will serve as a study, playroom for children, dining area or a possible place for meetings. Tilal Al Ghaf offers all this and more in all of their poolside villas or townhouses and promises a high rate of return on investment for future landlords.
The Water Lagoon community offers a selection of villas and townhouses available in several layout types, but premium villas are the most popular choice when buying property in Tilal Al Ghaf. Large contemporary homes are constructed using “green” technologies and come finished with the highest quality premium materials.
The sub-communities offering villas are Harmony I and Harmony II. Within the framework of the Harmony I release, the developer has introduced 234 homes with four and five bedrooms. Harmony II provides 221 villas encapsulated by the inclusion of “garden suites”. Larger villas come with 3BR’s plus a maid’s room and four, five and 6-bedroom configurations start from 2,152 sq. ft in size. All units feature built-in wardrobes, walk-in closets, semi-closed kitchens and terraces, and are delivered unfurnished. Courtyards are designed with enough space to house a swimming pool and parking spaces are provided for 2-3 vehicles as well.
Tilal Al Ghaf townhouses include three and four bedroom duplex units that hold master bedrooms with ensuite, a maid’s room, a semi-closed kitchen, terraces, and a garage for two cars. The townhouses are part of the development of Elan which is one of the sub-communities of Tilal Al Ghaf.
The Elan townhouses cost AED 1,950,000 (USD 530,900) and the units have a total area of 2,354 sq. ft and have four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Prices for the Harmony villas are delivered upon request. Please, contact our agents for more detailed information.
Due to the project’s current “under construction” status there is no available data on prices to rent at the moment.
