IHG to Debut New Upscale Voco Hotel Brand in Egypt
IHG has signed a management agreement with Arab International Tourism Investment Company to debut the voco brand in Egypt, with the development of voco Giza Pyramids.
Part of a mixed-use development, which will include a high-end mall, the 17,000sqm hotel is scheduled to open in 2022.
Launched in June 2018, and debuting in the Middle East in December 2018, the voco brand combines the informality and charm of an individual hotel, with the quality and reassurance of a global and respected brand.
Strategically located to cater for both business and leisure travellers, the 230-room voco™ Giza Pyramids will be situated in the prime locale of Pyramids Gardens in Giza, beside the Grand Egyptian Museum and the main entrance of the Pyramids.
The hotel is a 15-minute drive from the newly opened Sphinx International Airport, 30-minutes from the city centre, with easy access to the ring road connection to the New Administrative Capital, that is expected to become the new administrative and financial capital of Egypt.
The new-build hotel will offer all the features that guests will expect from the upscale brand, including an outdoor pool, a health club and spa, as well as 861 sqm of meeting space.
There will also be multiple dining options available for guests to enjoy, from the pool bar to the hotel’s specialty restaurant.
IHG operates 88 hotels across 5 brands in the Middle East, including InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Staybridge Suites.
