Viceroy Palm Jumeirah
Hotel Serviced Apartments
The Viceroy is located on the trunk of Palm Jumeirah and is scheduled for official opening in April 2016. The project is being developed by SKAI Holdings and consists of 481 rooms as well as 221 private residences.
Viceroy Palm Jumeirah was sold on a 20:80 payment-plan (80% of the total price payable on completion).
As completion is now upon us; there are a number of sellers who are looking to sell to avoid making the final 80% baloon payment. We are seeing a number of units currently being listed in the market at original price or with low premiums.
Owners have the option of giving their units as part of the hotel pool to earn rental incomes which are expected to net a 8% rental yield.
The cheapest options available to purchase in Viceroy are the smaller, fully furnished 1 bedrooms which had an original price of approximately AED 1.7 millon and there are options available in the market at original price.

The Palm Views is located at the very top of the trunk of the Palm right before the fronds begin. There are two residential buildings built on either side of the trunk having a total of 192 studio apartments which measure between 500 - 550 sq. ft.
All apartments have balconies and have views of the sea / marina.
The apartments were launched by Nakheel in January 2013, and all 192 units were sold out over a short period of time at prices of AED 1,000,000 each (average price per sq. ft. of AED 1,900)
These units can currently be purchased at an average of price of AED 1.2 - 1.25 million (and there may be opportunities to purchase at a lower price point). The current rentals on these properties is AED 75 - 80,000.
The maintenance fees for these buildings are very low; currently at AED 4,000 per annum. The reason for this is that facilities in these buildings is more limited, for example there is no gym. However, there is a communal swimming pool in each of these buildings.
Early reviews from visitors to these buildings is positive especially in terms of the views provided.
It is rare to purchase a studio anywhere in one of the high-end communities of Dubai like Dubai Marina, Palm or Downtown Dubai with a full water-view. Such units typically command a very high premium. The fact that the market is generally slower gives investors a chance to pick up a good deal.
Due to limited number of future construction on Palm Jumeirah, we believe Palm Views will eventually see a decent capital growth.
Based on current numbers, investors have a chance to earn an average ROI of 6.2 - 6.5% per annum. This is considered pretty high for the Palm Jumeirah. In comparison for communities like Shoreline or Marina Residence, net rental returns per annum range from between 5 - 5.5%.

Palma Residence, a collection of 104 four and five bedroom townhouses was launched in 2012 by Nakheel. The project is now ready and handovers are commencing.
There are two locations within Palma Residence which impact value. The inner units are primarily 4 bedroom townhouses built around a swimming pool. The outer units are mainly 5 bedrooms with beach-front access. Plot sizes, corner units and locations within these two sectors impact value.
Currently, estate agents operating in the area do not report any transactions taking place for these properties. Owners are demanding quite high price, which considering a softer market, smaller built up areas and the fact that buyers have a choice of purchasing on the fronds (Garden Homes and Canal Cove units) - the current asking prices may not be sustainable.
Typically speaking, 4 bedrooms in Palma Residence have asking prices ranging from AED 8.0 - 9.5 M. 5 Bedrooms asking prices range from AED 11 - 13 M.
While sale transactions may not be easy at the moment, we expect to see quite a lot of rental transactions taking place.
4 Bedroom units will currently rent for between AED 340 - 380,000
5 Bedroom units will typically rent for between AED 425 - 450,000; however, there are a few prime units with extra large plots and particularly spectacular views which may rent for up-to 500,000 - 525,000.

Prices being advertised are from AED 2,200 psf.
