Guinness World Record for Crystal Lagoons Egypt project
PR Newswire, DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, December 10, 2015
Crystal Lagoons Corp, the patented technology developer of giant crystalline lagoons, has added a second Guinness World Record to its growing list of global accolades, with the company’s 12.5-hectare Sharm El Sheikh manmade crystal lagoon project officially named largest in the world.
This breaks the company’s own previous record, with its eight-hectare San Alfonso del Mar crystal lagoon in Chile the Guinness World Record holder since 2007.
Located inland from the renowned Red Sea resort in the desert hinterland, the crystalline lagoon is the centerpiece of the US$ 5.5 billion Citystars Sharm El Sheikh tourism development being developed by Egypt’s Sharbatly family.
The 750-hectare mixed-use community will feature 12 crystal lagoons in total, upon completion, utilising 100 hectares of salt water sourced from underground aquifers. The crystal lagoons will be a major leisure attraction for visitors and residents occupying the 30,000 planned residential units, along with hotels, golf courses, marinas, museums and a shopping mall.
To date, Crystal Lagoons has an active portfolio of over 40 projects spread across the Middle East and North Africa, in key locations including Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Oman.
“Our portfolio of projects is helping raise awareness and interest for major hubs in the region and our significant Egypt presence reflects the value that delivering a crystalline lagoon project can bring to emblematic leisure destinations across the MENA region,” said Carlos Salas, Regional Director Middle East Crystal Lagoons.
