A legend rises again with The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo
Cairo is a historic city with plenty of antiquities. The Nile Ritz-Carlton, opened in the late summer of this year, and has undergone a complete renovation while retaining many of the original features.
Accommodation and interiors are all designed by Frank Nicholson, a US designer specialising in luxury hotel design and a long-standing collaborator of Ritz-Carlton hotels. For this project, he has used a style reminiscent of Ritz-Carlton properties around the world with Egyptian flavours and traditions.
The hotel offers 331 rooms with facilities including an Olympic-size pool with 17 private cabanas. Some rooms enjoy the view of Nile. 50 laid-out suites, including the elite Royal and Presidential suites, feature that spectacular Nile view and a sense of luxury.
Meeting and conference facilities include the Alf Leila wa Leila Ballroom, ideal for weddings, and a 1,700 sq-m conference hall.
" The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo will amplify the hotel's classic legacy with a contemporary approach. 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," commented Hervé Humler, president and chief operations officer, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
