Egypt,4 upcoming luxury hotels in Cairo
Despite the struggling economy, the hospitality industry has been recovering strongly in the last few years. The Egyptian government has been making tremendous efforts to improve the investment climate in Egypt and promote tourism. Egypt aims to attract 30 million tourists annually by 2028 and become an attractive travel destination.
According to an article by Egypt Independent, in 2022, Cairo’s hotel occupancy increased by 106 percent, highlighting travelers’ slow but sure interest in the country’s top tourist destinations. To cope with a rising occupancy rate and make improvements to the hospitality sector, several new hotels are set to open in the capital.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find information about the new establishments guaranteed to attract investment and tourism in Cairo.
That’s interesting! The historic Tahrir Complex, Cairo’s most prominent government building, is being repurposed into a hotel featuring the largest rooftop venue in Cairo. With 450 hotel rooms and 50 suites, Cairo House will be a luxury hotel housing world-class dining and entertainment venues.
Cairo House is set to finish construction by the end of 2024.
voco Cairo Arabella Plaza
That’s great! Voco Cairo Arabella Plaza is a 77-key hotel with an all-day dining restaurant, various small-scale signature restaurants, and a rooftop bar. It will be an accessible attraction for Cairenes, mainly since it is in New Cairo.
Voco Cairo Arabella Plaza is scheduled to open its doors in July 2023.
Tycoon Tower Hotel
That’s amazing! Tycoon Tower Hotel is set to be the tallest hotel in Africa and will have an infinity pool on its roof. It is located in the heart of the New Administrative Capital (NAC) and is poised to become an iconic addition to the new capital, overlooking the Green River.
The hotel will be managed by the international five-star flagship brand Grand Millenium.
Crowne Plaza Cairo Arabella Clubhouse
That’s great! Along with the previously-stated voco, it is set to be one of the three hotels built under the IHG Hotels and Resorts’ management agreement with Arabella Group. This 146-key property will have a spacious ballroom, a health club, a spa, and a swimming pool. It will be built in New Cairo’s Arabella Compound.
The hotel is scheduled to open in early 2026.
