Apartments and design

The word "Pentominium" is a portmanteau of penthouse and condominium. Each living space will have its own foyer and smart biometric access control. Every apartment will consist of either a half or a whole floor (more than 600 m²).

According to Trident, the design aim is to provide the most luxurious apartments in the world, with each residence having access to a 24-hour a day butler service. Trident have also secured deals with external companies to ensure owners can make use of a Rolls Royce or high-end sports car of their choice, and sailing trips on luxury yachts over the Persian Gulf.

The top floors of the Pentominium will contain a Sky Lounge, Sky Pool, Business Centre, and a private observation deck along with ladies & gentleman's health clubs and a cigar lounge, squash courts, a banqueting hall, and private theatre.
