The Ritz-Carlton Hotel has re-opened the new Nile Ritz-Carlton luxury hotel on the shores of the Nile in Cairo, Egypt.
The re-opened 331-room offers ultramodern amenities, including a spectacular Olympic-size pool, meeting rooms, ballrooms and business facilities.
The Ritz-Carlton president and COO Herve Humler said: "Visitors over the centuries have been drawn by its ever-evolving mix of history, trade and culture, which continues to draw adventurists, as well as families and business travellers to this vibrant city.
"With millennial travelers seeking luxury as part of their travel experience, the Nile Ritz-Carlton Cairo marries this ‘bucket-list’ city with world-class services. This has not only made Cairo more appealing but has also given us the opportunity to raise our first Ritz-Carlton flag on the banks of the Nile."
The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo also provides a number of dining venues that offer innovative and cutting-edge fare spanning Arabian, Italian and Continental cuisine.
According to the Ritz-Carlton, the guests will be able to visit the Sphinx and the Pyramids, benefitting from Cairo’s lush art scene that runs the gamut from Islamic art to impressionist paintings.
Humler added: "Cairo is a vibrant destination and no matter what your purpose in visiting the city, business or leisure or visiting family, there is always a sense of discovery."
Ritz-Carlton Hotel recently signed an agreement with the Manz family in Switzerland to add Hotel de la Paix in Geneva as a partner hotel.
Established in 1865, the hotel will reopen as The Ritz Carlton at the end of 2016 after the completion of a renovation planned by the Manz family.
