The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo, the iconic luxury hotel on the shores of the Nile, has reopened under the stewardship of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
The landmark property has undergone a complete renovation whilst retaining many of the original features.
Centered in the heart of the city, between the Nile and Tahrir Square, the Nile Ritz-Carlton is easily accessible from Cairo’s key attractions and landmarks.
The 331-room hotel houses ultramodern facilities including an Olympic-size pool with 17 private cabanas. The accommodations and interiors, all designed by designer Frank Nicholson are reminiscent of the timeless style of Ritz-Carlton properties around the globe whilst being anchored in the flavours and traditions of Egypt. In particular, the 50 exquisitely laid-out suites, including the elite Royal and Presidential suites, feature spectacular Nile views and offer an elevated sense of luxury.
Guests can unwind in the spa, which offers a plethora of treatments to work or travel weary guests, including the signature Rasul therapy. Guests can cap their wellness journey with a sunset yoga session on the spa terrace overlooking the Nile.
The hotel’s meetings and conference facilities include the Alf Leila wa Leila Ballroom, another original feature of the hotel, ideal for weddings of a grand scale. In addition, a new conference center offers avant-garde conference spaces including a 1,700 square meter conference hall.
Gastronomes visiting Egypt will also be spoilt for choice with an array of dining venues, with innovative and cutting edge fare spanning Arabian, Italian and Continental cuisine, complemented by gorgeous views and appealing ambiences.
The Nile Ritz-Carlton’s cultural leanings are also reflected in its sartorial sensibilities – the uniform of the Ladies and Gentlemen of the hotel was designed by Cairo’s new crop of designers who created a set of attire that embraces the design and history of the hotel and the city in which it is based.
