Egypt: Swanlake, A World-Class Resort Anchored by a Crystal Lagoons® Amenity21 October, 2020 / News
Africa is experiencing rapid population growth, intensive development of infrastructure and is seeing new urban hubs popping up across the continent. As a consequence, Crystal Lagoons® has seen continued expansion in the region, with dozens of amenities in different stages of planning, design, construction or operation.
One of the main characteristics of the African continent are its numerous landlocked extensions of land and cold and dangerous coastlines. Crystal Lagoons technology offers a solution to these problems, as these pure turquoise lagoons allow swimming and water sports to be practiced in a safe environment. The firm is also capable of developing projects in areas not only far from the coast but of low tourist and real estate value.
The firm’s success has spread throughout the African continent, particularly in South Africa, Nigeria and Morocco, just some of the countries in which the company has real estate projects and Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™, in various stages.
The most important market on the continent for Crystal Lagoons, however, is Egypt. With more than 20 real estate projects, the country also hosts the world’s largest crystalline lagoon spanning 30 acres, located in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh. It currently holds the Guinness World Record as largest crystalline water amenity, a second for Crystal Lagoons.
Other high profile developments such as Bo Island, Porto Golf and Swanlake, all anchored by pristine lagoons powered by Crystal Lagoons technology are expected to open soon. The latter is a high profile, world-class resort destination only a three-hour drive from Cairo.
At the heart of the Swanlake lies a series of large and spectacular seawater crystalline lagoons surrounded by a 2 km stretch of white sandy beach. Through this network of translucent lagoons, the turquoise-blue waters of the Mediterranean are carried into the landscaping of Swanlake, offering homeowners throughout the resort unimpeded views of water and easy access to the beach. The dramatic lagoons bring beach life to your doorstep and provide a safe and idyllic setting for your family to unwind.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
