There are enough luxury villa developments popping up across Indian cities, to point towards a real estate boom. Builders are creating exclusive, spacious homes for India's elite on exclusive addresses, along golf courses and in with some unusual amenities. Here's a listing of some of India's up-coming luxury villa projects.

Since Emaar MGF's 'Palm Springs' project near the DLF golf course in Gurgaon that picked up incredibly well, the company has come up with a super interesting project of 500 massive Spanish villas, and they're calling it 'Marbella'. Supposed to be Gurgaon's first villas-only community, the biggest villa here is spread across 12,500 sq ft and costs about Rs 12.5 crore.
Unitech, another real estate player has launched phase II of its Nirvana villa project, having sold out the units in its first phase.
In Greater Noida, Jaypee builders is supposed to be developing 5,200 sq ft villas and 7,200 sq ft estate homes on Jaypee Greens, its golf course project.
Bangalore-based Sobha Developers' the 153-acre 'Sobha International City' in Gurgaon, is also expected to have a decent mix of villas and row houses.

Compared to the capital, Bangalore, with obviously more land to lease has seen more villa development. 'Palm Meadows' in Whitefield, which is commonly considered an elite address (The Economist has described it as being as exclusive as the richest blocks of Los Angeles), was one of the first gated community projects with villas in the city.
Developed by Adarsh Group, its current villa projects in the city include Palm Meadows Annexe with 24 villas, the Adarsh Palm Retreat with 507 villas and the Adarsh Serenity with 171villas. The same company is also developing 'Lifestyle Presidential Villas', which are 10,000 sq ft villas with a private pool of course, near the new Bangalore airport. These will cost around Rs 7 crore.

Mumbai's space crunch means most luxury villa developments are coming up in the out skirts of the city. Luxury villas are being built in areas like Borivali, Goregaon, Thane, Panvel and Alibaug - which thanks to its close proximity to South Mumbai, is filling up with the holiday/beach houses of Mumbai's elite.
Auction house Saffronart and Cushman & Wakefield's spring property catalogue has listed villas in Alibaug and Madh Island, among others. The Madh Island villa, with a built up area of 4,100 sq ft, would relieve the buyer of Rs 9 crore.
Samira Habitat's Pavilion project in Alibaug, includes limited edition villas designed by Sabyasachi, while Orbit's Mandwa villa township will offer residents seven-star housekeeping on request, a helipad and golfing green.
