Movenpick Hotel El Ein Bay set to open on Egypt's Red Sea Riviera

Swiss hotel brand Movenpick is continuing to expand its presence in Egypt with a new beach and golf resort planned to open in the Red Sea Riviera area of Sokhna in 2020. The Movenpick Hotel El Ein Bay will be the group’s ninth hotel in Egypt, where it also operates eight luxury river cruisers.

Movenpick Hotel El Ein Bay set to open on Egypt's Red Sea Riviera

Global hotel group Movenpick has reinforced its commitment to the Egyptian tourism industry with the announcement of the opening of a new beach and golf resort on Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera. Country-wide, Movenpick already runs eight Nile river cruisers and eight hotels.

The Movenpick Hotel El Ein Bay will be situated next to a sandy bay in the popular beach and golfing spot of Sokhna, close to Suez and just an hours’ drive from capital Cairo. The new luxury hotel will have 214 rooms and suites and is set to be completed by 2020.

It will be the Swiss brand’s second property in Sokhna, where it already manages Movenpick Resort El Sokhna. Often referred to as Cairo Beach, El Sokhna is the closest seaside destination to the Egyptian capital and has also carved a niche as a top regional golf location.

The new contemporary resort will overlook a world-class 18-hole golf course. Within the grounds there will be five dining options for guests, including a specialty restaurant and a rooftop lounge.

Plans for the resort also include meeting and event space spanning more than 1,000 square metres, a large swimming pool, an extensive spa and fitness facilities.

“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 Movenpick Hotels & Resorts’ Chief Development Officer Andrew Langdon.

Movenpick Hotels & Resorts operates hotels all over the Middle East and North Africa. Its Egypt portfolio includes properties in Aswan, Cairo, El Gouna, El Quseir, Sharm El Sheikh, Soma Bay and Taba.

The company is currently pursuing rapid expansion, with plans to operate 125 properties globally by 2020. Around 20 hotels are planned or under construction, including those in Chiang Mai in Thailand, Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia and Nairobi in Kenya.
