Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts, Deutsche Hospitality’s luxury brand, continues to expand its portfolio with the opening of a new lavish hotel in Ras El Bar, North Egypt, offering “a truly stunning setting right at the point where the Nile Delta flows into the Mediterranean,” Invest-Gate reports.

Dubbed “Steigenberger El Lessan,” and aimed at the upper end of the market, the luxurious hotel extends over a total area of 4,200 square meters and features 153 rooms, including 15 suites, with all properties boasting a balcony with Nile and sea views, according to a press release on July 31.

With plans to later open a roof deck restaurant with unprecedented views of the Nile and Mediterranean Sea, Steigenberger El Lessan comprises facilities such as four fully-equipped conference rooms, including two extensive ballrooms, a gym area, and a spacious outdoor pool, complemented with a pool bar, coming alongside a main restaurant and “Sea Lobby Bar.”

Hailing the newest addition, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality Thomas Willms remarked, “The Steigenberger 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.”

Willms further stated that “Egypt is one of [Deutsche Hospitality’s] most important and strongest growth markets.”

On June 25, the hospitality brand released the 12th hotel venture in Egypt, “Steigenberger Pyramids Cairo,” nestled amidst Giza Pyramids and the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM). It features 132 elegantly-furnished rooms and suites, with state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings.
