The local Hassan Allam Construction (HAC) plans to start construction work on a 45,000-square-metre resort in Sharm El-Sheikh in late-May.

The 600-room Baia Bianca development, which will be located on a site facing the Red Sea at the foot of the Sinai Mountains, is set for completion in May 2012.

Hassan Allam Properties, the property development arm of Hassan Allam Holding, appointed US-based Perkins Eastman to design the seaside resort. According to the Perkins Eastman, principal in charge of the project, the hotel incorporates a series of courtyards and a central lagoon.

  • Swan Lake Katameya
  • Swan Lake Sixth October
  • Park View Katameya
  • Seasons Residence Katameya

On the Red Sea coast, Hassam Allam Properties is developing Little Venice Golf Resort in Ain El-Sokhna as well as Baia Bianca.
