Aurora Beach Safari Resort - Marsa Alam
46 kilometers south of Marsa Alam International Airport.
The resort is a small oasis within the desert built as an appreciation of the importance of Hassan
Fathy's contribution to world architecture. The widely known and influential architect Hassan Fathy was inspired by traditional Nubian materials and styles, urged an approach to the built environment that was economically and ecologically sustainable and responded to contextual needs of the individuals and communities for whom it was intended, credited with bringing the vernacular architecture of Egypt to a wider audience. His approach to building was based on the Nubian mud building techniques of the Upper Egypt, where arches and vaults were used to construct roofs without expensive formwork.
Aurora Beach Safari Resort offers well-appointed accommodation, a private stretch on the sea with its natural beach, a variety of food & beverages facilities, surrounded by fabulous views of the sea & desert and dramatic landscapes.
Marsa Alam is known for its spectacular beaches, rich marine life & dive sites and its close proximity to the historic sites of Luxor & Aswan.
