Founded by Mansour Amer in 2005, Porto operates as one of the largest privately held corporations in Egypt. Porto started with Porto Marina a resort in Marina on the North Coast over 990 units. Ten years later, Porto Resorts now encompasses over 30,000 units at 15 beautiful resorts in premiere travel destinations throughout Egypt and Middle East North Africa. From the white, sandy beaches along the Mediterranean coast to the Dead Sea in Jordan, families can affordably experience the most sought after vacation destinations in the country through Porto Resorts. With resorts in the North Coast, Red Sea, Sharm El Sheikh, Matrouh, Agadir and Tartous Porto Resorts have established itself as a leader in the hospitality industry.
As one of the largest resort developers in Egypt, Porto Resorts is constantly growing and improving by providing the best affordable luxury vacations available. With first-class accommodations and unparalleled customer service, Porto Resort's family-friendly resorts range from standard two bedroom apartments and cozy studios to spacious four-bedroom villas that all provide the essential comforts of home.

Porto Resorts is always growing and expanding to ensure the highest quality experience and value for Egyptian families.
Porto creates new communities for people by anticipating and identifying the unique and individual dreams, wants and needs of our customers and creating value through the properties and companies we own, manage and market.
Porto's vision is to become the leading architect of lifestyle-enhancing environments and experiences in the region through sound operation practices, exemplary customer service, strategic acquisitions and the development of new products and services that allow us to offer the most sought after family destinations in the Middle East.
"Since its founding more than thirty years ago, Porto has been guided by a unique vision to create a brand that is a benchmark for others, not only in Egypt but also in the MENA region at large.”
— MANSOUR AMER , FOUNDER OF PORTO GROUP
Much has taken place during the 30 year history of Porto. 30 years of experience has provided the expertise that comes with the planning, development and operation of more than 9.7 million square meters of property. For decades, Porto’s master plan has been a remarkable example of how long-range vision can bring balance, opportunity and happiness to families across Egypt and the Middle East. It’s part of a legacy that continues to guide the company to this day.
I believe the success of our company is due to the fact that we take care of our owners. I consider our owners our most important asset because I know that when we do our job correctly, they are our best sales people. Our mission to create value for people remains the guiding principle of how we work and is the basis of that success.
In looking at Porto today I see two things. First, I see adherence to the principles of community planning, which include diverse experiences within our communities. The plan for this has been carefully thought out, reflecting a balance of uses and housing types and establishing the highest standards of care for the resort and the people who lived there. I see a quality of design and architecture, and focus on detail, that is beyond what I could have expected.
Second, I see a company that recognizes and honors the importance of creating value for its customers. In the end, while the original master plan was both comprehensive and sophisticated, as a company we have constantly sought new ideas and concepts for its implementation. It is these core elements that have allowed us to maintain our strong position as a leader in family homes not only in Egypt but in fact across the MENA region.
As we move forward, we thank our community, our partners, and all those who participated in the story, yesterday, today and tomorrow. Let the next 30 years begin.
