This opening is a significant milestone in our journey and underscores the tremendous trust and confidence our owners have in us and in the power of our luxury brands in the region,” said Guido De Wilde, Merriott International’s Chief Operating Officer in the Middle East.
While reacting to this development, the Chairman of Egypt’s National Authority for Management & Investment, General Sherif Salah El-Din, said “the National Authority for Management and Investment is excited to collaborate with Marriott International to bring the classic sophistication of the St. Regis brand to the New Administrative Capital of Egypt. The St. Regis Almasa will play a significant role in giving the tourism industry much-needed support and will become the new destination for luxury hospitality in Egypt, playing host to the country’s most coveted events, conferences and summits.”
