IHG Hotels & Resorts, a leading global hotel company, has inked a deal with Arabella Group to develop three new hotels in Egypt between 2023 and 2026. In response to the rising demand for upscale resorts and hospitality in Egypt, IHG’s portfolio in the North African country will expand by over 500 rooms with the addition of three new properties: InterContinental North Coast, voco Cairo Arabella Plaza Cairo, and Crowne Plaza Cairo Arabella Clubhouse.
The agreement strengthens IHG’s presence in the luxury and premium segments in the region and highlights the popularity of its high-end hospitality offerings among owners and guests.
The three new-built hotels are currently under construction in attractive locations across Egypt. In July 2023, the voco Cairo Arabella Plaza is set to open, with the Crowne Plaza Cairo Arabella Clubhouse following in January 2026, and the InterContinental North Coast Direction White opening in September 2026.
According to Haitham Mattar, Managing Director for India, Middle East & Africa at IHG, Egypt presents a wealth of opportunity for the hospitality industry, with attractive, high-end destinations such as New Cairo attracting more visitors to the country. The signing of the three new hotels with Arabella Group will support this growth by providing new and exciting luxury and premium hospitality experiences to cater to discerning travelers.
Meanwhile, Mohamed Amin El Dokhmesy, President of Arabella Group, is delighted to partner with IHG Hotels & Resorts in expanding the footprint of three of its leading brands, InterContinental, voco, and Crowne Plaza, in Egypt. He believes that IHG’s track record of delivering world-class hospitality experiences to guests around the world and in Egypt, combined with Arabella Group’s expertise, will benefit both parties tremendously in this latest partnership.
One of the fastest-growing luxury resort destinations in the region, Ras El Hekma, will be the location of the InterContinental North Coast Direction White.
The hotel will feature 346 lavishly designed rooms and five food and beverage outlets, along with a 1,500sqm spa, health club, and swimming pool. The voco Cairo Arabella Plaza, located in New Cairo, will offer 77 premium rooms, five food and beverage outlets, and a rooftop bar. Meanwhile, the Crowne Plaza Cairo Arabella Clubhouse, also located in New Cairo, will offer 146 rooms, three food and beverage outlets, and a 750sqm ballroom for special events. Guests of all three hotels will enjoy IHG’s loyalty program, IHG One Rewards, which provides a range of benefits through the new mobile app.
