The opening marks one of the most notable hotel launches in the MENA region.

Orascom Hotels Management, the hotels management arm of Orascom Development, has today (X October 2022) announced that its newest hotel, The Chedi El Gouna, will open its doors at its flagship Egyptian Red Sea resort on 1 December 2022.

Taking bookings from 15 October 2022, the five-star beachfront hotel offers guests 82 elegant rooms and suites. Once inside, guests will discover a choice of gourmet restaurants, tropical-style pools and private beaches, fitness and activity areas, and its crowning jewel, a tranquil spa.

The Chedi El Gouna represents the pinnacle of El Gouna’s luxury hotel offering, with its tagline ‘lean into the hush’ chosen to reflect the hotel’s serenity. With charming character and a stunning beachfront location, complemented by The Chedi’s signature Asian aesthetics of intuitive luxury, timeless design, and contemporary cool experience, The Chedi El Gouna will be a sumptuous, eco-friendly getaway.

The hotel features three pools: the main pool, a shallow social pool, and a children’s splash pool with sunshade. The hotel is situated on an exclusive 250m natural cove beach with umbrellas and sunbeds for guests.

Guests will be able to experience the ultimate in serenity at the full-service spa. The spa’s design draws upon traditional Asian influences and features two hammams, four private treatment rooms, two couples’ retreat rooms, and a separate relaxation space, with treatments including massages, skin treatments, detoxifying regimens, and beauty therapies.

The property features four exquisite food and beverage outlets for guests to enjoy. Choose between:

About El Gouna

The thriving town of El Gouna was born 30 years ago when entrepreneur Samih Sawiris turned a swathe of desert into a seaside oasis for his family and friends. El Gouna is now home to a multi-cultural community of over 25,000 residents, 18 hotels, 100+ restaurants and bars, a large array of top-of-the-line sports and leisure facilities, two professional golf courses, and full range of European-standard services.

El Gouna is ideally situated only 22km away from Hurghada International airport, bordering a beautiful 10km stretch of beach and straddling a series of 20 islands surrounded by picturesque lagoons and criss-crossed by arched, cobbled bridges

Famed for its water sports, there are nine PADI certified dive-centres with access to some of the best sites in the Red Sea. El Gouna has the perfect weather conditions for kitesurfing, which makes it a hugely popular pastime. El Gouna also offers deep sea fishing, windsurfing, horse-riding, go-carting, tennis and golf.
