Steigenberger-Alcazar-ResortThe new five-star Steigenberger Alcazar Resort, set in a beach location directly on the Red Sea coast, will be ready to receive its first guests from mid-May. This will already be Steigenberger’s eighth venture in Egypt. Three contracts have been signed during the last three years.

The hotel will offer 610 rooms, including seven Junior Suites and two villas, whilst five different restaurants and four bars will cater to the guests’ every culinary need. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the benefits of a modern conference area able to stage meetings and events as well as being able to access spa and gym facilities.

“Egypt is an important location for the Steigenberger Hotel Group,” said Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotels AG. “The new resort in Sharm El Sheikh fits seamlessly into our existing portfolio and strengthens our position on the market. Together with the opening of the Steigenberger Tahrir Square in July we are well set.”

The Alcazar Resort is situated in the Bay of Nabq on the Sinai Peninsula and offers hotel guests the use of a 3,000 m2 private sandy beach. The area features an extensive underwater environment which is ideal for diving and snorkeling.

Travelers are able to access Sharm El Sheikh Airport in only ten minutes, whilst shopping opportunities, stables and a zoo are also within the direct vicinity.
