New To Cairo – St Regis Cairo

St. Regis Hotels & Resorts announced the highly-anticipated opening of The St. Regis Cairo. Rising tall on the banks of  the River Nile, The St. Regis Cairo is an illustrious icon weaving a powerful story of luxury in the  region. Located at the North end of the Corniche, in the heart of Egypt’s bustling metropolis, the  39-story hotel offers easy access to the magnificent monuments of a city steeped in history.

With its striking architecture, created by renowned architect Michael Graves, The St. Regis Cairo  firmly establishes itself as a pivotal landmark in the city and beyond, carefully balancing opulence  with refinement and elegance to evoke a profound sense of grandeur. Uncompromising in its  decadence, the hotel is an exquisite reflection of a passionate vision that conscientiously draws on  the city’s influential and storied past while confidently introducing its vibrant future.  

Graceful geometric lines flow throughout the interiors, creating a repeated structural motif that quietly  references the heritage of the region. Dark wood and rich textures combine with intricate embroidery,  bejewelled panelling, bronze and wood carvings embellished with flashes of shimmering gold, mother of pearl inlays and imposing crystal chandeliers creating a dramatic Egyptian aesthetic with  modern execution. A striking mural entitled “The Pink Sun” graces The St. Regis Bar. Staunchly  modern in its execution, the mural references ancient Egypt and the birth of a modern civilization. 

The hotel’s approach to design pays particular homage to the hundreds of craftspeople who dedicated  their time and handiwork to perfecting each and every detail offering a distinctly modern vision that  immerses guests in moments that are simply awe-inspiring.  

The St. Regis Cairo boasts 286 lavishly appointed rooms and suites and 80 luxurious apartments, that  offer unmatched indulgence. Three expansive Royal Suites define opulence, with plush interiors  featuring a private fitness room, sauna and floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic Nile views.  All guestrooms and suites enjoy the signature St. Regis Butler service, one of the most visible  representations of the brand’s famed level of anticipatory service and personal attention.
