The company has signed a deal with Galalah Co. For Touristic Investments S.A.E. to manage the Mövenpick Hotel El Ein Bay.
“As we accelerate our expansion in the Middle East and North Africa, Egypt is one of the key growth markets we are targeting and signing this new property in the stunning El Sokhna area not only confirms our long-term commitment to the country, but consolidates our position as a leading hospitality firm in the region,” said Andrew Langdon, chief development officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
The new hotel is envisaged as a chic and contemporary resort with 214 rooms and suites; five dining options, including a specialty restaurant and a rooftop lounge; meeting and event space spanning more than 1,000 sqm; a large swimming pool; and an extensive spa and fitness facility.
“El Sokhna is one of Egypt’s leading tourism destinations and an emerging hub for golf, meetings and events. Mövenpick Hotel El Ein Bay aims to capitalise on this potential,” said Mr. Mahmoud El Gammal, Chairman of Galalah Co. For Touristic Investments S.A.E.
“Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ proven track record managing properties in Egypt and across the Middle East and North Africa and its desire for innovation will help us realise our ambitions to be a leader in driving El Sokhna’s ongoing development.”
Set to open in 2020, Mövenpick Hotel El Ein Bay confirms Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ ongoing commitment to Egypt where it already operates eight properties and eight Nile cruisers.
