Project is the group’s fourth hospitality project in Egypt
The redesign and renovation of Egypt’s historic Alamein resort is now underway as per a statement from Emaar Hospitality Group. The group has been charged with refreshing the property, which was built in 1960 next to the Sidi Abdelrahman bay of the Mediterranean Sea.
The refreshed Al Alamein Hotel will be managed by Emaar’s Vida Hotel and Resorts brand and is expected to open for business next year. The hotel is being positioned as a luxurious beach resort where ‘inspiring minds create, connect and come alive’. Emaar notes that the new hotel will retain the essential characteristics of the historic resort.
Olivier Harnisch, CEO of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “It is an exceptional honor for us to undertake the modern reinterpretation of the Alamein resort. The people of Egypt have fond memories of the resort, and we are committed to restoring it to its true glory. With its central location in Marassi by the beach, it will offer visitors an inspiring and culturally enriching lifestyle experience.”
The hotel will feature 189 rooms including luxury chalets and will feature a number of features and amenities including outdoor seating overlooking the bay, a beach outlet, rooftop lounge, fitness centre, swimming pool, tennis court, and spa. Guests will also have access to the amenities in Marassi including a marina, yacht club, golf course, beach clubhouse, play areas, restaurants, meeting facilities, outdoor pools and decks.
Al Alamein Hotel is the fourth hotel project by Emaar Hospitality Group in Egypt. The others, also located in Marassi, are Address Marassi Beach Resort and Address Marassi Golf Resort + Spa, both operated by Address Hotels + Resorts, the premium luxury hotel and serviced residences brand, and Vida Marassi Marina with 120 hotel rooms and suites.
