Mövenpick has inked an agreement with Galalah Co. to manage the 214-key Mövenpick Hotel El Ein Bay, its second property in the coastal area of El Sokhna. The first, Mövenpick Resort El Sokhna, is owned by a sister firm of Galalah Co.
 
Often referred to as ‘Cairo Beach’, El Sokhna is the closest seaside destination to the Egyptian capital of Cairo and is also known as a top regional golf location. The new contemporary resort will offer views of the 18-hole golf course.

The resort is set to open in 2020 and will include five dining options, including a specialty restaurant and a rooftop lounge, meeting and event space spanning more than 1,000 sqm, a swimming pool and an extensive spa and fitness facility. 
 
Andrew Langdon, chief development officer at Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts said: "As we accelerate our expansion in the Middle East and North Africa, Egypt is one of the key growth markets we are targeting and signing this new property in the stunning El Sokhna area not only confirms our long-term commitment to the country, but consolidates our position as a leading hospitality firm in the region."
 
In addition to El Sokhna, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ Egypt portfolio includes properties in Aswan, Cairo, El Gouna, El Quseir, Sharm El Sheikh, Soma Bay and Taba.
