Westin Hotels & Resorts Opens in Cairo

CAIRO—Westin Hotels and Resorts this week opened the Westin Cairo Golf Resort & Spa Katameya Dunes.

Owned by New Cairo for Real Estate Investment Company, the resort and spa is located in Katameya Dunes. The property features a 27-hole championship golf course.

“The global demand for wellness continues to propel Westin’s growth momentum around the world, including our debut in new markets like Doha and Dubai and our expanded presence in destinations like Spain, Germany and now Egypt,” said Brian Povinelli, global brand leader at Westin Hotels & Resorts. “As the second hotel Westin will open in Egypt this year, we are thrilled to introduce the brand in Cairo and inspire new level of well-being for our guests’ before, during and after their stay.”

Colors found in nature inspired the sophisticated palette coupled with natural materials and patterns that add textural layers to the interior design, the hospitality group said. Each of the 135 guestrooms offers views of the lush landscape that surround the grounds, from verdant fairways to meandering lagoons. Taking center stage, and illustrative of the resort’s overall design, an art installation of white doves suspended from the ceiling is located in the lobby.

The property features three dining options, including a pool bar, golf club bar and Paloma—an all-day Mediterranean restaurant featuring an open-kitchen in its center as well as the brand’s signature Vertical Garden. The restaurant offers variety of culinary options alongside Westin’s SuperFoodsRx and Fresh by the Juicery menus.

In addition, there is a naturally-lit indoor plunge pool as well as a sprawling, heated outdoor pool located at the center of the resort. Additionally, the Heavenly Spa by Westin features 10 therapy rooms and two couple suites as well as facilities, including a steam room and sauna.
