The first phase development will commence in 2021 and is targeted for completion in 2024. The entire masterpiece development will take approximately 7 to 10 years to complete.

Set to revitalise Melaka's wellness industry by concentrating on eco-friendly lifestyle and wellness tourism, the amenities offer an experience of a kind. State-of-the-art lifestyle elements that will be included among the lush greenery with a clubhouse are among the main features.

The development is ecologically planned and responsibly built to provide a conducive living atmosphere while ensuring sustainability standards. Upon completion of the project, there will be an extensive array of amenities and facilities consisting of entertainment and F&B outlets, medical and healthcare facilities complementing AKCC, recognised as the first golf club with a 27-hole golf course in Melaka. The development is poised to truly be a one-stop destination suitable as a multigenerational family home.
