Dubai’s Emaar reopens Al Alamein Hotel in Egypt

The hotel underwent a major refurbishment costing 1.5bn Egyptian pounds

Dubai developer Emaar has reopened the Al Alamein Hotel in Cairo following a major refurbishment costing 1.5bn Egyptian pounds (over $83,800).

Located in Sidi Abdel Rahman Bay, the hotel’s refurbished retro-modern interiors are themed after the 1960s, when the resort first opened.

The resort features black and white photographs of Egypt’s most celebrated classical actors and singers at the lobby.

It also has the ‘Umbrellas’ sculpture by Greek artist George Zongolopoulos – a structure of steel umbrellas that stretches 13 metres into the sky. One of the most photographed modern sculptures worldwide, the piece was first displayed at the Venice Biennale in 1995.

The hotel also features a collection of other art works and sculptures by local and global artists, including a mosaic mural of late legendary Egyptian singer Om Kolthoum.

Al Alamein Hotel is part of a wider residential and tourist community Emaar is developing in Marassi, the company’s Mediterranean development in Egypt.

These include several hotels already launched such as Vida Marassi Marina, Address Marassi Beach Resort and Address Marassi Golf Resort + Spa.

Marassi, spread across 1,544-acres, will feature seven luxury hotels with up to 3,000 rooms, a marina, golf course, and healthcare facilities.

The first phase of the Marassi Beach Clubhouse is already open to the public.

Emaar is also developing Uptown Cairo, a mixed-use community, and Mivida, a green community in new Cairo that includes residential, commercial, and leisure facilities.
