Aquitainia is the fusion of two islands, Spain and France located in the middle of Dubai’s The World. The new £750 million private island paradise project was announced on September 25th by British developers, Select Property. Select Property is teaming up with Dubai based developer Select Group to launch this exciting luxury development.

“The World” has already made waves around the world due to its stunning location just four kilometres off the coast of Dubai. The cluster of 300 man made islands will be representing the world and are set to be completed in 2012.

Access to the islands is made possible via specially designed bridge. Aquitainia’s islands will measure approximately one million square feet. The project has been designed to compliment the amazing creation of The World by combining the flair of the Mediterranean whilst providing five star luxuries with contemporary living.
