Who We Are

ALDAU Development, member of Sami Saad Holding Group, has pioneered in the delivery of premium residential and hospitality properties in Egypt and abroad for the last twelve years.

Sami Saad Holding was founded in 1963; initially a contracting company that rapidly became a major player in civil infrastructure. With more than fifty years of experience, Sami Saad Holding has earned a sterling reputation as a well-trusted title in fields as diverse as building military bases and laying oil pipelines in its early days to manufacturing Mercedes-Benz cars, building the International Coastal Highway and collaborating with Samsung on the new AUC campus.

Dar El-Fouad Hospital was one of the earliest international designs sought by the company’s engineering and contracting sector.

These are all major undertakings that could have only been entrusted to an entity with the proficient expertise, high standards and professionalism that are synonymous with the name Sami Saad Holding.

ALDAU Development operates two divisions: Real Estate & Hospitality. The hospitality developments are looked upon as the stars of success shining bright in the skies of the group; being regarded as the best in class resorts, hotels and conference centers. We take pride in our existing portfolio of 3 superior hotel properties, “Steigenberger ALDAU Beach Hotel”, “Steigenberger Aqua Magic” and “Steigenberger Pure Lifestyle”, in addition to “ALDAU International Conference Center” and “ALDAU Art Promenade” all in Hurghada. ALDAU Development Hospitality Division continues to grow internationally with the successful development of “Holiday Inn London West” in London, United Kingdom.

Today, ALDAU Development Real Estate projects have earned an unparalleled status for bringing hospitality excellence into such ventures.

ALDAU Heights enjoys a premium recognizable location at the beginning of the touristic promenade with fully furnished apartments and penthouses. In addition, ALDAU Strand comprises beachfront luxurious residential apartments designed by world-renowned Simon Halstead and Associates. Both projects’ unique locations and stunning views are a true reflection of the group’s ideology in developing residential projects perceived as luxurious communities that are best-in-class developments. With a few largely-sized projects underway, We strives to optimize quality, serve new markets and continually improve all aspects of our work to deliver the utmost possible means of reliability for our developments.

Our growth plan aims to expand our market presence in our core markets in Egypt and London which includes the major development in the West Cairo Pyramids Heights Business Park destination; the 5-star hotel “Hyatt Regency Cairo West”, Cairo West Residence, a luxurious residential compound in addition to yet another boutique hotel in the Red Sea. We aim to provide our clients not only with the perfect home but with the community and neighborhood that best suits our residents’ intellectual activities and lifestyle. With our keen understanding of the market and our pioneering experience in Egypt, We seek projects and services that fulfill the needs of the various market segments we serve.

The name ALDAU is Arabic for Dhow; a traditional Arabian sailing vessel that has evolved over the centuries. In the ancient Egyptian civilization, the Pharaohs used these ships, made out of cedar wood, to transport materials they needed to build the Great Pyramids. This is a fitting tribute to Egyptian history, as ALDAU’s first developments are located in Hurghada; the place where the ancient Egyptians built the world’s first harbor to facilitate their trade – a fittingly symbolic place for the project’s inception.
