The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo, Egypt, opened its doors on 22 October 2015. The property, which reopened under the stewardship of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., will offer leisure and business travellers an opulent retreat in the heart of the city.
“Cairo is a city that fuses the majesty of the past with the pulse of the present and the promise of the future,” stated Herve Humler, President & COO, The Ritz-Carlton.
“Visitors over the centuries have been drawn by its ever-evolving mix of history, trade and culture, which continues to draw adventurists, as well as families and business travellers to this vibrant city. With millennial travellers seeking luxury as part of their travel experience, the Nile Ritz-Carlton Cairo marries this “bucket-list” city with world-class services. This has not only made Cairo more appealing but has also given us the opportunity to raise our first Ritz-Carlton flag on the banks of the Nile.”
The hotel features 331 rooms, with ultramodern facilities including an Olympic-size pool as well as meeting rooms, ballrooms and business facilities. Gourmands visiting Egypt will also be spoilt for choice with an array of dining venues, spanning Arabian, Italian and Continental cuisine.
“Cairo is a vibrant destination and no matter what your purpose in visiting the city, business or leisure or visiting family, there is always a sense of discovery. The past has left a strong imprint on the personality of the city but its dynamism comes from its ever-evolving cultural and social scenes. For the global tourist, it is this tasteful fusion that appeals and keeps Cairo current,” added Humler.
