Four new luxury hotels are set to open in Cairo as the Egyptian government aims to attract 30 million tourists per year by 2028. Despite the setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospitality industry has been recovering in recent years. In 2022, Cairo’s hotel occupancy increased by 106%, indicating a growing interest in the country’s top tourist destinations. To cater to this demand, new hotels are being constructed in the capital.
Among the new hotels is the Cairo House, which will feature 450 hotel rooms, 50 suites, and the largest rooftop venue in Cairo. The hotel will house world-class dining and entertainment venues and is scheduled to finish construction by the end of 2024. The voco Cairo Arabella Plaza, with 77 rooms, will open in July 2023 and feature an all-day dining restaurant, various small-scale signature restaurants, and a rooftop bar.
Meanwhile, the Tycoon Tower Hotel, located in the New Administrative Capital, is set to be Africa’s tallest hotel, with an infinity pool on its roof. It will be managed by Grand Millenium, an international five-star flagship brand. Finally, the Crowne Plaza Cairo Arabella Clubhouse will open in early 2026 in the Arabella Compound, featuring a spacious ballroom, health club, spa, and swimming pool. This hotel, along with the voco, is one of three being built under the IHG Hotels and Resorts’ management agreement with Arabella Group.
