Aqua Bay

Aptly described as “the rebirth of a legend,” what was once a familiar sight along Seven Mile Beach for over three decades is now evolving into a modern and sophisticated, 10-storey luxury condominium that will cater to the ever-increasing demand for prime residential space right next to one of the world’s most celebrated beaches. Each of its 38 well-appointed villas features a gourmet kitchen and wet bar, as well as two private terraces where you can enjoy the captivating tropical scenery to your heart’s content. Resort-style amenities that can be enjoyed all-year round a waterfall edge pool, an extensive pool deck and private beach, as well as an oceanfront fitness center, lounge, and game room exclusively for residents. Aside from being an ideal vacation home, owning a unit in Aqua Bay can also be an excellent investment as it is one of the few luxury complexes that allows owners to rent out their villa when they are not in residence.
