Within the ever-evolving world of real estate and hospitality, ORA Developers stands out for its statement-making properties and firm vision on elevated customer service and experience.
In a special 5-episode docu-series titled “A Journey Through Time,” viewers can jump onto a global journey, showcasing the company’s wide range of properties, spanning multiple countries and its profound impact on the global real estate and hospitality landscape, providing a possible sneak peek into what is to come.
Founded and led by Chairman and CEO, Naguib Sawiris, the docu-series deep-dives into ORA Developers’ story, from its humble beginnings and meteoric rise to interesting insights delivered by some of ORA’s top management from around the world.
“I really wanted a brand that strikes all of what I believe in,” Sawiris stated as he explained his passion for providing a superior customer journey, emphasizing later on in the series that he “won't settle for a mediocre output. If you do something, you either do it excellently or you don’t touch it.”
Transforming World-Class Luxury Standards
A Journey Through Time highlights the cultural essence of ORA, exploring their customer-centric focus and team spirit, the values that define their approach to property development, ground-breaking designs, and their transformative impact on communities and urban landscapes.
Across the 5 episodes, viewers will travel around the world, exploring the company’s diverse projects in various destinations – Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, Grenada in the Caribbean, and Pakistan.
With a vision to develop iconic destinations and first-class experiences, ORA Developers’ various Egyptian projects, Ayia Napa Marina (Cyprus), Eighteen (Pakistan), Yi Hotel Mykonos (Greece), and Silversands (Grenada), have left a lasting mark on the international real estate scene.
ORA Developers' Silversands in Grenada, nestled in the Caribbean, demonstrates the elegance of simplicity and luxury, and features lavish villas and boutique accommodations that aim to redefine comfort and exclusivity. ORA’s CEO had a significant impact on its development, highlighted in the series, from the carefully selected furniture to the curated collection of artworks.
Ayia Napa Marina, with its 600-berth marina, challenges conventions with swirling towers and deluxe apartments integrated into the coastal environment, and reflects ORA's commitment to blending with nature while enhancing the local landscape.
ORA’s Egyptian projects seek to merge local traditions with modern opulence, drawing inspiration from Egypt's architectural marvels to offer residents a living experience that incorporates the country's cultural heritage with modern comforts. Currently, the company has developed several high-end projects in Egypt - ZED Sheikh Zayed, ZED East, Solana, Pyramid Hills, and Silversands North Coast.
In Pakistan, ORA's project "Eighteen" breaks away from local traditional development by utilizing only 16% of the property, emphasizing low-rise, horizontal structures. Developed in partnership with Saif Group and Kohistan Builders, Eighteen has become Pakistan's premier lifestyle destination, featuring an 18-hole golf course.
ORA Developers recently announced its upcoming expansion plans in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to build the “largest real estate development in the history of UAE’s private sector” – a 20 million sqm mixed-use development project – bringing its distinctive touch to the market.
For its expansion to the UAE, ORA collaborated with Q Holding to create an intelligent and environmentally responsible city in Ghantoot, Abu Dhabi. This ambitious venture represents ORA's goals to establish a sophisticated, sustainable, and comprehensive city that embodies the future, nestled in the coastal region between Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Commitment to Delivering the Optimal Experience
The episodes also shed light on the collective efforts of the ORA team, their unwavering commitment to quality, and their relentless drive for innovation, establishing ORA as a trailblazer in the real estate industry.
Snippets from interviews with some of ORA’s top management provide a unique glimpse into the company’s challenges and achievements, offering a first-hand perspective on ORA’s story and behind-the-scenes happenings. From country-specific obstacles and solutions to insights into Sawiris’ business acumen, the series provides a wealth of knowledge for those interested in the sector.
“What you need is inspired architecture, but most importantly, to [also] deliver on the experience, what you need is the right service, great service,” said ORA Hospitality CEO, Dimitrios Zarikos.
As viewers absorb the team’s words, the series shares breathtaking visuals of its various properties, inviting viewers to witness the result of ORA’s visionary leadership, teamwork, and commitment to developing a legacy of excellence.
