Settled in the heart of the Red Sea only 30 km away from Hurghada International Airport lays the unique residential and touristic community Makadi. As the only residential community in Makadi Bay, the destination adds a different flavor to the area when compared to its neighboring resort based communities. With a mission to provide upper middle class families the opportunity to own a home at affordable prices, the town resort is now featuring a variety of residential units, Makadi Garden Azur Hotel and Makadi commercial mall. Makadi stretches across approximately 3.39 million m2 providing both its residents and visitors all the services and facilities that they would require and desire. Orascom Development Management, a wholly owned subsidiary of Orascom Development, acts as the development manager in charge of design, sales, marketing and community management. Being the first gated community in Hurghada, Makadi is destined to provide the community with high quality services, among which is Hurghada’s first club “club house” that offers social and sports activities, not to mention the spacious commercial area, hotels, medical center and school. With such services being provided, not only owners and hotel visitors of Makadi will enjoy their stay, but also all of Hurghada will find something suitable in Makadi to fulfill their needs. There are four operating hotels in the Makadi area with a total capacity of 1,627 rooms. Three hotels are self-managed, while Citadel Azur is managed by Azur for Hotels & Resorts.
Under the strategic notion of capitalizing on the destination’s existing assets and accelerating the monetization of its land bank, OHD is now expediting with the needed design drawings for the destination’s club house facility with plans to start its construction during 1Q 2016.
OHD is also in advanced negotiations with a school management company to come and develop and manage the first international school in the area.
Two 4-star hotels and one five star hotel with a total of 1,113 guestrooms
