The St. Regis Almasa to woo Egypt in Q2

Egypt is gearing up to welcome The St. Regis Almasa, which is scheduled to open its illustrious doors during the second quarter of 2020. 

The opulent hospitality gem will be located in the New Administrative Capital of Egypt, just outside Cairo. It will occupy an existing property at the entrance of the up-and-coming city, which will be transformed to offer the hallmarks that The St. Regis brand is known for, including the signature St. Regis Butler Service. 

"We are delighted to be working with the National Authority for Management & Investment on this exceptional conversion opportunity to bring St. Regis to Egypt's New Administrative Capital,” said Jerome Briet, chief development officer – Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.

"This signing further enhances the St. Regis brand portfolio in Middle East and Africa and underscores the tremendous momentum that our luxury brands have in the region,” he continued.

Also commenting on the news was Colonel Waleed Samy Salama, CEO, National Authority for Management & Investment: “The National Authority for Management and Investment is pleased to start a relationship with Marriott International. The St. Regis Almasa will be positioned as the luxury hospitality hub in the New Administrative Capital and with the largest state-of-the-art convention centre in Egypt, the hotel will be the ideal host to the country's largest events, conferences and summits. We are confident that this deal signing will play a vital role in the development of tourism in Egypt."

Radiating sophistication and class from head to toe, The St. Regis Almasa will comprise 270 rooms, 90 suites, 60 apartments and 14 villas. Guests will be invited to make the most of outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a well-equipped gym, a tranquil spa, a club house and 20 food and beverage options.
