The Nile Ritz-Carlton return to Cairo this summer
Adding new features while holding on to the historic flavours
The Nile Ritz-Carlton Cairo is slated to reopen in the Egyptian capital in late summer of 2015, under Ritz-Carlton’s stewardship.
The hotel is undergoing a complete renovation whilst retaining many of the original features, to serve returning and new guests alike.
“The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo will amplify the hotel’s classic legacy with a contemporary approach. As a brand, we are proud of instilling in all our properties, a distinct personality rooted in a sense of place and history,” said The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company president & chief operations officer Hervé Humler.
“By complementing the property’s natural strengths with our focus on bespoke service, diverse experiences and rich memories, we aim to reinstate the hotel as pride of national tourism in the country.”
Centered between the Nile and Tahrir Square, the hotel is accessible from Cairo’s key attractions and landmarks including the Arab League Headquarters and the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, home to the King Tut exhibition.
In addition, the nearby Qasr El Nile Bridge links the hotel to the magnificent Cairo Opera House, a landmark of aesthetic and cultural interest in Egypt.
The 331-room hotel houses modern facilities including an olympic-size pool with 17 private cabanas. The accommodations and interiors, all designed by Frank Nicholson, are reminiscent of the style of Ritz-Carlton properties around the globe with emminent flavours and traditions of Egypt.
The hotel also has a spa, wellness centre, meetings and conference facilities (including the Alf Leila wa Leila Ballroom, apt for grand scale weddings), dining options offering Arabian, Italian and Continental cuisine.
