Hussain Sajwani Hosts Wedding Party For His Daughter

DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani had a joyous occasion not long ago when he and his family celebrated his daughter Amira’s wedding. Amira has had a secondary executive role at her father’s real estate firm, and this event is yet another milestone for her and the family. Distinguished guests including Dubai’s royal family were in attendance at the wedding, and also coming over from the US were President Trump’s two sons Donald Jr. and Eric. President Trump himself couldn’t be there for the wedding, but Sajwani was delighted to see Eric and Donald Jr., and the two even paid a visit to the Trump International Golf Club which DAMAC Properties and the Trump Organization jointly own. Sajwani has a great relationship with the Trumps not only through real estate deals but even on a personal level with both families having visited each others’ homes over the years.


Hussain Sajwani earned his bachelor’s in business at the University of Washington in 1978 and worked at a large oil drilling company in Abu Dhabi as a contracts manager for a few years. His first business he ran on his own was a catering company that distributed food across the world, and he would later merge it into his real estate business. Sajwani’s real estate business started by buying a few smaller hotels in Deira, but as the market grew he began looking to build 5-star luxury properties.


DAMAC Properties was begun in 2002 and the first large first class housing lot was finished in 2005. Hussain Sajwani has not only brought the Trump brand to his properties over the years, but he also has had his buildings done by brands like Versace, Bugatti and Cavalli. One of his largest freehold unit properties in DAMAC’s portfolio is AKOYA Oxygen which is where one of Trump’s golf courses is located in the middle of. He also has had a city within a city built in Dubai’s AYKON City district where DAMAC Maison is located. Sajwani also owns Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles and DICO Investments, a private equity firm. He recently took DAMAC Properties public with shares traded on the London Stock Exchange and the Muscat Exchange.
