Family-friendly resort will also see many business travellers

A well-known hotel chain is backing further development in a new and emerging Mediterranean tourism hotspot on the northern coast of Egypt.

Eager to boost its Egypt portfolio, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has shed light on plans for a new, family-friendly resort that is slated to open its doors in 2020, TTG MENA reports.

Mövenpick Hotel & Residences North Coast, Egypt will be part of an upscale mixed-use residential development and have 150 hotel rooms and 150 branded units that will be part of a rental pool.

The location of this up-and-coming tourist destination is 70 kilometres west of Alexandria and 280 kilometres northwest of Cairo, with Borg El Arab International Airport just 15 minutes away by car.

Business travel too
“Egypt’s North Coast is a development focal point, with new projects ranging from dining, wellness, leisure and entertainment facilities, to new conference venues and large commercial zones such as Borg El Arab City, featuring five industrial parks, which is just 15 minutes from our new property,” claims Andrew Langdon, Mövenpick’s chief development officer.

“With more tourists and families flocking to this area of the country from Egypt, the Middle East and key European markets, as well as an influx of oil and gas and business travellers seeking meeting space and high-quality accommodation, we are in a strong position to benefit from this surge in activity.”

As well as Mövenpick Hotel & Residences North Coast’s opening in 2020, the 214-key Mövenpick Resort El Ein Bay, part of a new integrated beach and golf resort in El Sokhna overlooking the Red Sea, is scheduled to inaugurate.
