Hyundai dealers expand aftersales service network

As part of its continuous efforts to upgrade its aftermarket services, Hyundai Motor Co., in collaboration with its authorized dealers in Saudi Arabia — Wallan Trading Co., Almajdouie Motors Co., and Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors — has expanded and improved its services.
Hyundai's new service centers are fully equipped with the latest tools to provide optimum service to its customers throughout the Kingdom.
Hyundai dealers in the country consider the aftersales services to be of the utmost importance. The company has always highlighted the importance of dealing with Hyundai-accredited centers to maintain optimum car performance and occupant safety.
It strongly recommends that its clients use original Hyundai-branded spare parts, which are available at all of its authorized branches and dealer premises across the Kingdom. Underlining the risk of choosing counterfeit spare parts, it also reminded motorists that in order to maintain optimum performance and to avoid invalidating the manufacturer’s warranty of 100,000 km or five years, which covers all Hyundai cars sold within the GCC, they should only rely on lubricants accredited by its parent company, Hyundai Motor Group.
Its aftersales centers are staffed with highly qualified and experienced technicians.
Hyundai runs ongoing training programs to ensure that all technicians are highly trained and well aware of the latest car service techniques. At each dealership, technicians are required to undertake annual training programs about the latest car service developments and technologies.

Emaar reopens historic Al-Alamein Hotel

Emaar reopens historic Al-Alamein Hotel

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

The opening event was attended by Egyptian Minister of Tourism, Dr. 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 to 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, of which renovation costs totaled EGP 1.5 billion ($84 million),” 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.

There is something remarkable around every corner of the resort. An impressive assortment of black and white photographs of Egypt’s most celebrated classical actors and singers festooning columns at the lobby offer visitors much to marvel at once they walk into the building.

The hotel is also home to the renowned Umbrellas sculpture by Greek artist George Zongolopoulos, a poetic structure of steel umbrellas that stretches 13 meters into the sky, offering a dramatic reinterpretation of Abdel Halim Hafez’ classic oldie “Dokko Elshamasy” or “Fix the Umbrellas on the Beach.” One of the most photographed modern sculptures worldwide, the piece was first displayed at the Venice Biennale in 1995, where it drew international attention, and will now delight visitors to this Egyptian vacation spot.

The hotel also boasts a magnificent collection of art works and sculptures by a large number of local and global artists, including an iconic mosaic mural of late legendary Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum and another one featuring colorful ancient boats.

Al-Alamein Hotel is part of a thriving residential and tourist community Emaar is developing in Marassi, the company’s flagship Mediterranean landmark in Egypt. These include several hotels already launched such as Vida Marassi Marina, Address Marassi Beach Resort and Address Marassi Golf Resort + Spa. Marassi will be home to seven luxury hotels with up to 3,000 rooms.
