Deutsche Hospitality has continued the “Evolution Steigenberger” by opening a further hotel in Egypt at the end of July. The new Steigenberger Hotel El Lessan will operate under the Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts brand. It is located in the North of the country, in the popular holiday destination of Ras el Bar, and provides a truly stunning setting right at the point where the Nile Delta flows into the Mediterranean.
The hotel offers 153 rooms, including 15 suites. All rooms feature a balcony with Nile and sea view. The Steigenberger El Lessan extends over a total area of 4,200 square metres. Facilities include a main restaurant, the Sea Lobby Bar, four fully equipped conference rooms, including two large ballrooms, a gym area and a large outdoor pool with a pool bar. Plans are also in place to open a roof deck restaurant with a great view of the Nile and the Mediterranean Sea.
The new Steigenberger Hotel El Lessan is aimed at the upper end of the market. “Egypt is one of our most important and strongest growth markets,” said Thomas Willms, CEO, Deutsche Hospitality, the umbrella brand of Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts. “The Steigenberger Hotel El Lessan is the first luxury hotel to be launched in the region. We have achieved a further expansion of our local presence and have also been able to bring about a significant enhancement in the relevance of the Steigenberger brand.”
The Egypt-born hotelier Hisham Mohamed Saied has been appointed as General Manager. Mr. Saied can look back on 15 years of experience in hotel management. He has held various leadership positions in the Jaz Hotel Group during this period and has at times been in charge of up to 1,000 guest rooms and as many as 850 members of staff. Mr. Saied and his team aim to set new benchmarks in the region by offering perfect service and working to international standards.
