Egypt’s DM Development and the Hilton International Hotel Management Group announced plans to introduce a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Ain Sokhna, Suez governorate, state-run Ahram Online reports.

The developer will invest a total of EGP 400 million in the hotel’s construction phase,  the news website quoted DM Development’s managing director Ahmed Abdelhamid as saying on December 10.

To be located inside the real estate company’s Groove Sokhna resort, “DoubleTree by Hilton Ain Al Sokhna” will have a mesmerising beach area of 2400 meters and beachfront units overlooking the Red Sea.

Slated for opening by 2024, “DoubleTree by Hilton Ain Al Sokhna” will boast 162 guest rooms, six suites, and 32 chalets, in addition to four food and beverage outlets, three retail outlets, two main pools, several private pools, a beach club, a fitness centre, a spa and a kids club.

“Ain El-Sokhna has always been a secluded sea-side escape for Cairo residents, but even more so now with its proximity to many of the new cities being developed in east Cairo,” Ahram Online quoted Carlos Khneisser, vice president of Development for Hilton Worldwide in the Middle East and North Africa, as saying.

Abdelhamid added that the new development will be part of the growing DoubleTree by Hilton global portfolio, which currently includes more than 580 upscale hotels and nearly 135,000 rooms in 46 countries.
