Movenpick opens on Egypt's Northern coast
The high end resort will feature five hotels, a golf course, shopping mall, sports complex and villas.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts (MH&R) has opened a luxury five-star resort and spa at El Alamein on Egypt’s Mediterranean coast.
The Swiss hotel group will manage the resort on behalf of Ghazala Tourist Development Company, a subsidiary of KATO Group, which has just completed the construction of the El Alamein International Airport.
The hotel will be located in a resort covering 120,000 square metres of land, of which only 38,000 square metres will be developed, according to reports. The resort will feature five hotels, a golf course, shopping mall, sports complex and villas.
“The property is unique; being the only five-star hotel along the north coast of Egypt with the exception of Alexandria, the completion of this ambitious project has been eagerly welcomed,” says Andreas Mattmüller, senior vice president, Middle East, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
“This applies not only to international travellers, but also to the growing number of locals who spend time in places like Marina or Agami, who will benefit from a superb facility on their doorstep.”
The hotel is around 40 km west of Alexandria and 310 km from Cairo and offers 252 rooms, three Executive and nine Royal Suites. It has a pillarless ballroom that can accommodate up to 500 people.
