Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has underlined its commitment to Egypt's tourism industry by adding Mövenpick Resort Hurghada, Mövenpick Resort Abu Soma and Mövenpick Resort Sharm el Sheikh in Naama Bay to its existing portfolio of four properties on the country's Red Sea coastline.
The company has also strengthened its presence on the Nile with four new cruisers and one sail boat, including the 'Misr', once the private yacht of Egypt's former King Farouk.
The Mövenpick Resort Hurghada is located in Hurghada Bay, 8km from Hurghada International Airport and offers 252 rooms and suites, all with a direct view over the Red Sea. The resort has benefited from a programme of renovations throughout 2010 which will continue this year in stages to ensure a smooth operation.
Facilities at the resort include a private beach, marina and freshwater pool and the property is ideal for waterskiing, snorkelling, diving, horse-riding, visiting Giftun Island and desert safaris.
The company's Sharm el Sheikh resort has also recently opened in Naama Bay, offering 298 rooms and four villas with private pools, while the company will offer more options for cruising the river Nile when it boosts its fleet in October by launching the historical steamship 'Misr' and four more boats, the M/S Sun Ray, Darakum, Hamees and Feddya. The hotel management company will then operate a total of seven ships on the Nile and one on Lake Nasser.
