The Radisson Hotel Group has signed the Radisson Collection Resort, Marsa Alam Port Phoenice in Egypt. This agreement marks the debut of Radisson Hotel Group’s third brand, Radisson Collection, in Egypt, and is a magnificent addition to the Group’s current portfolio, expanding the Group’s footprint in the nation to eight hotels in operation or under development. It also shows the Group’s change in the region.
The Radisson Collection is a one-of-a-kind collection of landmark properties with original local influences, living design, and a thriving social atmosphere. No two hotels in this collection are alike, and each has a distinct personality that is distinctive to its location. The hotels’ modern design combines elegance in form and function, making it the ideal location for those who cherish a vibrant and opulent lifestyle.
The resort, which is set to open in early 2025, will be located in Port Phoenice on the Red Sea, a waterfront premier integrated resort community with luxury residents, golf estates, water activities, retail centers, hospitals, and schools, and will be easily accessible from Marsa Alam International Airport (only a 35-minute drive away). The resort’s location makes it a fantastic choice for a holiday, with adjacent restaurants, entertainment, boutique shopping, cultural excursions, activities, and a bustling nightlife.
The newly constructed resort will include 294 rooms, including 20 suites, that have been meticulously curated with a combination of Mediterranean and Italian architecture. The resort will have a lobby lounge, one all-day dining restaurant, one high-end speciality restaurant, a gorgeous beach restaurant, and a beach bar with breathtaking views of the sea. The resort will also have a fitness facility, a diving center, a theater, a kids club, multiple pools, and direct beach access.
Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Global Chief Development Officer Radisson Hotel Group, says: “The introduction of the Radisson Collection Resort, Marsa Alam Port Phoenice is reflective of the brand transformation our Group has taken over the last few years. With a portfolio of iconic and exceptional properties, we are confident that this new resort will become one of our best hotels across the region. We would like to thank our partners for their trust, and we certainly look forward to expanding our relationship with them in the future.”
Ramsay Rankoussi, Vice President Development – Africa & Turkey, Radisson Hotel Group, added: “The relevance of our presence in key feeder markets such as Central and Eastern Europe where we are market leaders, reinforces the opportunities for expansion across Egypt. The country remains a key focus country in our development strategy and with this new addition, we expect to further deploy our presence in both cities and resort locations across the nation and across all our core Radisson Hotel Group brands.”
Radisson Hotel Group currently operates four hotels in Egypt situated in major cities such as Cairo, Alexandria, the Red Sea Riviera, and El Quseir, and also announced earlier this year the launch of the Radisson Individuals brand in Egypt with the opening of Marina Resort Port Ghalib, a member of Radisson Individuals.
