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.
