Rotana is continuing to drive its expansion across the Middle East and North Africa, adding to its luxury portfolio with a new development scheduled to open in Q4 2023 in Egypt.
The new five-star Luxor Rotana resort will add 319 keys to Rotana’s existing 18,565 keys in operation in the region.
Historic and green
Catering to business and leisure travellers, the new property will be in close proximity to Luxor’s ancient ruins and the Nile, set in more than 18,000 sq m of lush gardens.
Integrating modern architecture with authentic designs, the luxury resort will boast 319 spacious rooms, including 48 suites and one presidential suite offering unobstructed views of the cityscape.
Guests will enjoy a wide selection of food and beverage options from four outlets including a lobby lounge, an all-day dining restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, a sophisticated bar, and Kamoon, a popular Rotana-developed restaurant with views over the gardens and Nile river.
Further into north Africa
Guy Hutchinson, president and CEO of Rotana said: “As we build on our expansion plans in the region, the signing of Luxor Rotana delivers on our strategic goal to further grow our portfolio in North Africa. Egypt is a key market for us with significant potential and we look forward to further building our brand presence in the country. Adding to our luxury portfolio, we look forward to delivering an unparalleled experience by providing our guests with ‘Treasured Time’ in this timeless city of Luxor.”
Luxor Rotana will offer a range of services and amenities including a luxurious state-of-the-art spa and treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, steam and sauna, and a dedicated kids club. Fitness facilities comprise two spacious tennis courts and a fully equipped gym. Business travellers will have access to four meeting venues equipped with high quality audio-visual technology.
