The historic Al-Alamein Hotel has officially reopened after a major facelift by Emaar Hospitality Group that will make it among the finest resorts along the Mediterranean.

The opening event was attended by Minister of Tourism Rania Al-Mashat, VIP guests, top media figures, as well as other public figures.

Situated in the picturesque setting of Sidi Abdel Rahman Bay, the hotel's glamorous design ethos and refurbished retro-modern interiors hark back to the glory days of the 1960s, when the resort first opened.

The remodelled designs blend vintage charm with contemporary style, evoking a sense of nostalgia for the golden age of Egyptian music and cinema.

"The refurbishment of Al-Alamein Hotel provides an example of our determination to offer a hotel that is on a par with, or rather superior to, world-class resorts," said Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar.

"We strive for nothing less than the highest global standards for our customers and our developments in Egypt including Al Alamein hotel, which its total renovation costs summed up to EGP 1.5 billion," Alabbar added.

While the building stays true to its rich heritage, visitors can expect modern comfort and style everywhere, from the bar and restaurants to the corridors and rooms.
