Global hotel company IHG Hotels and Resorts is expanding its presence in Egypt with four new Hotel Indigo branded properties. As part of a management agreement signed with real estate specialists Mountain View, IHG will introduce the world’s first globally branded boutique hotel brand, Hotel Indigo, to Egypt with Hotel Indigo Mountain View North Coast, Hotel Indigo Mountain View iCity New Cairo, Hotel Indigo Mountain View iCity 6th of October City and Hotel Indigo Mountain View Ain El-Sokhna. The signing ceremony was held in the presence of Dr. Mostafa Madbouly, prime minister of Egypt, and Dr. Assem El-Gazzar, minister of housing and development.
The four new hotels will cater to a broad range of travelers as leisure and business tourism rapidly rebounds across the country.
Haitham Mattar, managing director, India, Middle East and Africa, IHG said: “Egypt is one of the most dynamic tourism markets in the region with a great vision for the future of leisure and business travel. We have a longstanding legacy in the country and are proud to continue to support the development of its hospitality sector through the introduction of our boutique and lifestyle brand, Hotel Indigo.”
Amr Soliman, Mountain View chairman, said: “With their innate understanding of local cultures, high standards of service and impeccable attention to detail, IHG is the ideal partner to build our hospitality offerings and take it to the next level.”
Set in one of Egypt’s most exclusive cities, the Hotel Indigo Mountain View North Coast will offer views of the Mediterranean Sea as well as high-end retail and dining once doors open in July 2024. The hotel will feature 100 design-led rooms, a spa, health club, pool and 165 square meters of meetings and events space.
Meanwhile, the 200-key Hotel Indigo Mountain View iCity New Cairo will cater to a business clientele with its location in the Fifth Settlement.
Hotel Indigo Mountain View iCity 6th of October City, set to open in January 2028, will be an urban escape in the Giza Governorate, 32 km outside the city of Cairo. The hotel will offer 200 rooms.
A short drive from the buzz of Cairo, Hotel Indigo Mountain View Ain El-Sokhna, offers the best of both worlds with its setting amidst mountains and sandy beaches. A haven for trekking, fishing, diving and skating, the new property will offer hotel guests a tranquil atmosphere in addition to 150 rooms, meeting and events space and F and B options, starting January 2028.
