This is not the first manmade island to be sure, but it is the most luxurious and well known of all the islands in Dubai. This is set amidst 150 acres of greenery. The Desert Palm is an exclusive hotel on the island. This is one of the most architecturally difficult projects engineers have accomplished, not only faced with a tight timeline, but also having to fight the sea to create the island itself. From the initial building the breakers to create the outline, this extraordinary venture was a logistical nightmare. However, the builders prevailed over the sea and the tides to create the Palm.
