Kempinksi to open its newest Egypt hotel in Cairo by mid June
The new Kempinski Nile hotel will be bringing new experiences to holidaymakers staying on the river banks of the Nile. Scheduled to open in June, 2010 this new hotel is set to become a new sensation, a world apart from all other Egypt hotels in Cairo.
Opening soon in June, Kempinski’s first ever Cairo hotel in Egypt will show the industry how understated and cool luxury can be combined with Egyptian culture and traditions to offer original discerning travellers with unique experiences during their Egypt holidays in Cairo.
Debuting as the first boutique hotel in Cairo, the Kempinksi Nile hotel has a particular vision, offering things that have not been offered in this vibrant and ancient city before. Unlike other big Egypt hotels that have opened in Cairo, Kempinski is borrowing from Cairo’s rich local flair, blending European and Egyptian cultures to create a unique hotel experience for those enjoying Egypt holidays in the capital city..
Replacing an old hotel on the river banks and perfectly located at one of Cairo’s most strategic downtown spots, the new Kempinski hotel will set a new standard of hotelier traditions on the Nile banks. Revamped in a record time of 30 months, the décor and character has been completely changed, evolving into a more contemporary design that captures the essence of style and relaxed elegance.
“The core values of Kempinski are innovative, witty and daring” - General Manager Axel Ludwig explains – “We offer a remarkable journey and create new traditions. The prime location of the property, combined with its superlative facilities, gives Kempinski a great opportunity to positively establish the brand in Cairo. The Hotel design, location and views offer a great competitive advantage, positioning Kempinski at the onset of market penetration in the Egyptian capital. Kempinski Nile Hotel is set to offer the key values of City Boutique hotels. The contemporary elegant design combined with the warm charming atmosphere and the tailored service reflect the European luxury and life style blended with the Egyptian culture and authenticity. It’s not overloaded, but its understated and sleek, functional, beautiful, cozy and charming. The hotel will serve as an oasis of peace, relaxation and art. We want to enrich people’s lives and well being, we are not just another status icon for rich people”
Bringing Egyptian art to life for the delight of holidaymakers enjoying Egypt holidays at this hotel, a selection of paintings will be displayed throughout the hotel. Borrowing from the richest aspects of local culture to expose the best of Egyptian art to guests, 500 different paintings and 250 sculptures have been selected from local artists to be placed throughout the hotel "Art is one of the key values of the experiences. Art and exquisite design will have a touch on everything." - Ludwig adds.
Having turned the Lobby into a chocolate lounge, the area will offer a respite from the busy city with a little bit of chocolaty indulgence. “Chocolate makes people happy and theres so much positive energy with it too.” - Ludwig says. Multiple outlets are also being added to offer unique food and beverage experiences, whether it is on a French restaurant serving contemporary French Cuisine or with a more culturally intimate experience in Osmanly: the ottoman restaurant inspired by Egypt's rich history in association with Turkey and the Ottoman Empire, the hotel brings a way to feel the local vibes during luxury Egypt holidays at this outstanding new hotel.
A contemporary shisha bar to celebrate one of the oldest Egyptian traditions that travellers love to experiment during their holidays in Egypt is also on the cards. However as well as the traditional Arabic Shisha, Kempinski will offer a collection of Designer Shishas from London, Paris, Moscow and Beirut. In short the new Kempinski will combine Egyptian culture with European Lifestyle kicking it up a few notches to boast a different style and authentic flair.
