Al Alamein Hotel - EntranceThe historic Alamein resort, built in 1960 and having hosted legendary leaders including Gamal Abdel Nasser Hussein, second President of Egypt, is gearing up for a contemporary facelift. Emaar Hospitality Group has commenced renovation and redesign work of the property, while maintaining its cultural context and heritage, with the all-new Al Alamein Hotel, managed by Vida Hotel and Resorts, scheduled to open doors to visitors in 2018. It is located centrally in Marassi, the master-planned lifestyle and tourism destination by Emaar Misr.
Al Alamein Hotel is the 14th upcoming project under Vida Hotels and Resorts. Al Alamein Hotel’s location along the Sidi Abdel Rahman Bay will make it a preferred hospitality destination by the Mediterranean for visitors not only from Egypt but across Europe and other parts of the world. The nearest international airport – Burj Al Arab Airport in Alexandria is just about two hours’ drive while the Al Alamein National Airport is less than 45 minutes away. Both airports offer direct connections to major European cities.
