"The completion of THE MURAKA is a personal lifetime achievement," said Ahmed Saleem, a Director at Crown Company and chief architect and designer of the residence. "After years in the making, my team and I are proud to officially present THE MURAKA residence and its accompanying Maldivian experience to worldly travelers who crave the extraordinary."
