Armada Villa is a high-end, leasehold residential development located in Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur. The development came to fruition through a joint venture between Kuala Lumpur City Hall and long-standing developer in Taman Desa, Faber Development. The entire development was completed in March 2013.
Armada Villa is a very low density, upper-market development, with only 46 units spread across 5.6 acres. The development consists solely of 3 or 3½ storey semi-detached houses and bungalows. Typical semi-detached units come with 5 bedrooms whereas the bungalow units come with 7 bedrooms. There are three types of layouts for semi detached units which ranges from 3,833 sf to 4,549 sf. Prices at launch start from RM2,600,000 for the semi-detached units and RM4,700,000 for the bungalow units.
Armada Villa's houses were built using reinforced concrete which consists of metal and mesh added to the construction of the building for increased support. All the units would come with high ceilings and environmentally friendly features that promotes sustainability such as solar water heaters and a rainwater-harvesting system. The bungalow units of Andaman and Danube comes with its own private swimming pool.
Security at Armada Villa is good, being gated and guarded with alarms installed in every unit, card access and 24-hour patrol. Facilities are also fitting for a high-end residential, with a clubhouse, gymnasium, playground, swimming pool, and jogging track encircling the landscaped environment. The lake located right behind the development offers a soothing view.
Amenities are easily accessible as the development neighbors the neighborhood of Taman Desa and Kuchai Entrepreneurs Park, where many amenities such as eateries and banks can be found along with entertainment outlets. Nearby malls include Midvalley, The Gardens, Cheras Leisure Mall and NSK Kuchai Lama. The nearest hospital is Taman Desa Medical Centre.

The CEO of Faber described Armada Villa as the new millionaire's row of Taman Desa. This is not an exaggeration as one unit would literally cost you millions. The contracting developers, being Faber have had a long-standing presence in Taman Desa since way back in 1974. The developers are rather old-school and have garnered a reputation for developments which speaks for themselves.
It is also noteworthy that the nearby development also by Faber which is Danau Villa, has almost doubled in price over the course of 8 years. Armada Villa itself is one of the last enclaves of unoccupied land in the vicinity of Taman Desa. Armada Villa would be Faber's second last development in the vicinity, with the final project being located on a 2.7-acre piece of land between Danau Villa and Armada Villa.
