  • #CouldItBeCairo Getting a Beach?


    Besides your alarm in the morning, there is the very disturbing car horns; the loud “whooshes” and “vrooms” of barely functional cars; the fresh breeze of car exhaust blowing in your face; along with no sun reaching your blinds due to the surrounding high-rises, it almost feels like your day consists of a 24-hour depressive journey through chaos and pollution. Because the senses are often in frenzy due to our chaotic city, our energy is drained long before we get to the summer season, or even the weekend for that matter.

    While we tend to recharge at certain “time slots” throughout the year, somebody out there seems to understand that Cairenes need a home away from home, within the boundaries of their beloved capital. If we tell you that there is room for sunlight, a fresh breeze of the beach, and a quiet & serene setting all inside Cairo, you would probably ask us “#CouldItBeCairo?”

    Sarai decided that creating a beach inside Cairo is, in fact, doable. Hence, they created Cavana Lakes, a residential resort inside Sarai. Sarai will be home to a lagoon, or as they like to call it, a beach. This is because you can kayak, jet-ski, swim, and do a lot of stuff that you wouldn’t normally be able to do in the capital. You will be living in a residential resort inside a city that is secluded from the capital’s pollution, the hustle and bustle, and the very stressful everything!


    Cavana Lakes reside at the south-east corner of the 5.5 million m², Sarai. It will be home to a range of units: standalone villas, twin houses and town houses. Each of these units will have 24/7 concierge services available, a 5 stars hotel and the villas have a private beach.

    Sarai is located on the Cairo-Suez road; just a 5 minute drive away from the New Capital, a 10 minute drive from the New Cairo AUC Campus, and a 15 minute drive from the Ring Road. In other words, this project is near pretty much everywhere and anywhere. Sarai isn’t only focused on providing its residents with services that would normally be available at the beach; indeed, they are offering a list of services, including international fine-dining restaurants, bars, lounges and cafes, and spa treatment centers.     


    We can almost say that it is a dawn of a new age where long distance travels are cut to a walk, and a vacation after a tedious week is not far out of reach.
