A Cabana-Inclusive ‘Kynd’ of Getaway in Egypt’s Ras El Hekma

These beachfront kynd cabanas serve as a reminder that in a world where you can be anything, you should definitely be ‘Kynd’.

A Cabana-Inclusive ‘Kynd’ of Getaway in Egypt’s Ras El Hekma

Once upon a time, when the world was a somewhat calmer place (circa last summer), there existed this inherent and oftentimes rebellious need amongst the Egyptian populus to collectively seek out activities requiring the four fatal H’s – heels, hopping (up and down, as well as from bar to bar) and happy hour.

As the global political, economical, and literally-everything-else turbulence evolved into the new normal, those of us who once broke both our piggy banks and our backs in pursuit of cacophonous clubs, began to yearn for calm cabanas.

Emerging out of the Mediterranean’s soft sandy beaches and enveloped by the raging dark blue sea that is the Egyptian North Coast’s ever-energetic summer party scene, the 40-key Kynd 01 Hotel – the beachfront brainchild of homegrown hospitality brand Kynd Hospitality and real estate developer Melee – has decided to add a splash of exclusivity to its boutique lodgings with a limited selection of Kynd cabanas overlooking the crystalline waters and catering to the romantic, wistful and peace-needing among us.

Located right in the epicentre of the “talk of the region” coastal area Ras El Hekma, specifically in Gaia Ras El Hekma, these calmingly monochromatic Kynd cabanas manage to bring together functionality, in the form of a serene and smart design that makes use of the cosy space without compromising on comfort, and luxury, which is achieved by ensuring these ocean-facing havens are serviced by the bespoke Kynd 01 Hotel.

As for the Kynd cabanas’ spa-like aesthetic, it manifests itself in the form of rattan light fixtures, bamboo embellishments, zen-garden-reminiscent artwork and delicate yet simultaneously dramatic curves all around – from the full-length mirror and little decor nooks, to the wooden wardrobe panels and cream furniture.

All in all, this new strategic and swanky addition to the Ras El Hekma coastline does not only fill a cabana-sized hole in this rising coastal hub’s real estate scene, it also allows tranquillity-focused summer residents and visitors alike to check off an item that’s been on their resolution list for years – being ‘Kynd-er’ to themselves.
