Located at One Palm by Omniyat, the penthouse apartment was purchased on the
condition of a very specific request. Despite One Palm offering three swimming

The penthouse is the largest of three triplex penthouses, and the owner will get
to enjoy over 29,800 square feet of luxury. Each of the five en-suite bathrooms
and several living areas offer uninterrupted and unique views of Dubai Marina's

feet of exterior space, including several balconies, terraces and the rooftop
area. The triplex unit has been designed in opulent rich textures of
London-based luxury design studio Elicyon.
