Egyptian development company, Tatweer Misr are developing the Galala resort with the aim of it becoming the premier destination on the Sokhna coast. Utilising to the full the stunning mountain and coastal topography, they will create a new resort offering international standard hotel accommodation, luxury residences and an unparalleled range of sporting and leisure facilities, a mix that will be unique to Egypt.
From the vibrant bustle of the sea front and harbour, with its distinctive boardwalks reaching out into the Gulf of Suez to the solitude of the mountain-top luxury spa retreat, a series of distinctive neighbourhoods will be developed across the 2 million sqm site, each defined by their distinctive architecture, sympathetic to their particular location, and by the leisure and recreation offer located in each of these neighbourhoods.
Galala resort will be designed and built to international class and quality standards, an aspirational destination and a place to see and to be seen, designed to appeal to the middle and upper income groups of Egypt and in due course, to international tourists. Petersham Group’s role in the project is to identify and locate in the master plan a unique range of viable market-leading leisure, sport and entertainment experiences which will be success drivers for the resort, creating a distinctive identity and character for Galala. The first phase will be built on 500, 000 sqm, will be delivered within 3 years and will comprise the ‘Old Town’ of townhouses, villas, commercial centre and public amphitheatre, 4* hotel and the ‘Corals’, a boardwalk complex offering a wide range of water sports, cafes and restaurants and a beach club.
