Our continuous dedication and non-stop consistency greatly helped in the challenging period of Covid-19. The year 2020 was more of an interval of devoted planning in which we strategically worked on. As a result, SUNRISE portfolio has expanded by 4 more resorts in the year 2021. We opened 2 new neighboring resorts in Sharm El Sheikh, located in the world-famous diving spot, Ras Nasrani; SUNRISE Remal Resort and SUNRISE Remal Beach Resort.
Another resort that was opened in Hurghada, in the heart of Makadi Bay is SUNRISE Tucana Resort. The boho-chic resort has been witnessing an extensive success and never-ending positive feedback as a result of its set of amenities created with a touch of luxury as well as the premium all-inclusive concept. Last but not least, we opened the first boutique hotel in the heart of Ain Sokhna, Tanoak Hotel, located only an hour away from Cairo.
As a part of our 2020 planning strategy, we widely invested in renovating and modernizing our properties in terms of their amenities, facilities, services and personnel trainings.
