The Sawari Marina at Sahl Hasheesh will soon be the Red Sea’s premier marina and the crown jewel of Sahl Hasheesh.
Promising to be an active center of town life, Sawari (or ‘masts’ in Arabic), evokes the opulence of the ancient Red Sea, a vibrant trade route travelled by ships from all over the world. We are sparing no effort to ensure that Sawari becomes a complete luxury destination, catering to the needs of a discerning clientele.
The master plan for the 2.5-million-square-meter project was recently approved by ERC. Orascom Development and Management, a subsidiary of Orascom Development Holding and creators of the world famous Abu Tig Marina in El Gouna, will be partnering with ERC as the main developer of the project.
With a total water surface area of 117,000 square metres, the Marina itself will host up to 330 yachts ranging from 10 to 50-plus metres in length.
The Marina’s extensive pedestrian promenade will offer more than two kilometres of boutique shopping, restaurants, cafes, bars and entertainment venues, in addition to an exclusive yacht club and three luxury hotels. With a wide range of dining and entertainment options to suit all ages and a friendly and professional staff, Sawari will be as rich in community as it is in natural beauty and comfort.
Sawari will ensure that Sahl Hasheesh becomes the top destination on the Red Sea Coast for second-home owners and property investors from across Europe and the Arabian Gulf.
The Marina has been carefully planned to conform to the design rules governing the development of the resort. Buildings in the Marina, which include commercial, one and two bedroom residences, and three bedroom penthouses, are limited to three stories in order to honour the natural beauty of its surroundings at Sahl Hasheesh.
As the beating heart of Sahl Hasheesh, Sawari will help transform the young town into a thriving seaside resort community. Early marina patrons and property investors will watch as the resort blossoms around them, guaranteeing an excellent return on their long-term lifestyle and financial investment.
One and two bedroom condominiums, three bedroom penthouses, as well as spacious villas with pools are available for sale at Sawari. These modern interpretations of traditional regional architecture are constructed to the highest building standards, and incorporate the best of professional design: sleek interiors and the latest in home technology.
ERC held a pre-launch sales event in December 2010, which was extended into the beginning of 2011 to satisfy demand that far outpaced Management’s optimistic projections that saw the Company book over USD 20 million in reservations.
