Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is partnering with real estate developer Talaat Moustafa Group (TMG) to extensively expand the brand’s Egyptian portfolio.

The additions comprise new hotels, residential offerings and significant property enhancements.

New duo

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Cairo Capital at Madinaty and Four Seasons Hotel Luxor will be introduced in Egypt through this upcoming phase of strategic growth, further building upon the latest multi-million dollar property enhancements at Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Sharm El Sheikh, which doubled the offerings of the existing property including new accommodations, dining outlets, leisure activities.

Bart Carnahan, president, global business development and portfolio management at Four Seasons said: “Egypt is an important destination in Four Seasons history, as it marked our brand’s entry into the Middle East 22 years ago. Our continued expansion illustrates our ongoing commitment to the region, and all that it has to offer for luxury travellers and homeowners.

“TMG has long been an integral development partner for our projects in Cairo at Nile Plaza, Alexandria at San Stefano and Sharm El Sheikh. We are thrilled to continue our exceptional work together, providing guests and residents in Egypt with unmatched luxury experiences through our collection of new hotel and residential offerings.”

Verdant development

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Cairo Capital at Madinaty is anticipated to open in 2025 and set within the Madinaty development on 185 hectares (460 acres) of verdant parkland.

The capital city hotel will feature 346 rooms and suites, while the private residences will comprise 107 villas and 80 luxury residences. The villas will range from 721 to 1,847 sq m (7,761 to 19,881 sq ft) with six configurations featuring a contemporary design, floor-to-ceiling windows, rooftop gardens, limestone finishings and private pools, all inspired by Egyptian palaces, while luxury residences will range from 221 to 670 sq m (2,379 to 7,212 sq ft) with five configurations.

The property is being designed by Pierre Yves-Rochon, who has also worked on Four Seasons properties in Paris, Megève, Bahrain Bay, Doha and Florence.

Eating and meeting

Gourmet restaurant and bar options will include a waterfront restaurant at the centre of the property with several private dining, al fresco, international and Egyptian-inspired outlets spaced throughout.

The hotel and private residences will also feature a standalone spa and fitness facility. Wellness amenities will include several private treatment rooms, an extensive array of tennis and multi-sport courts, and state-of-the-art fitness equipment.

An onsite ballroom will feature striking vaulted ceilings and generous outdoor event lawn space to accommodate occasions big and small.

Luxor luxury

Set to open in 2025, Four Seasons Hotel Luxor will include 200 guestrooms and suites, each with views of the Nile River, the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens.

The site will host several restaurant and bar outlets, a tranquil spa, a fitness facility, multiple pools, luxury retail and a young adults centre. Expansive meeting and event spaces will total 1,300 sq m (14,000 sq ft).

WATG Architects, which has helped create Four Seasons experiences in Maui, Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, Tianjin and a soon-to-come project in Hanoi will lead the design of the building, with Wimberly Interiors overseeing the interiors.

Private additions

These two new sites follow the addition in March of a private residences provision at Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh, now renamed Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Sharm El Sheikh.

The property has now doubled in size after the enhancement project, with new accommodations, restaurants, recreational facilities and meeting spaces. The expansion bolted on 69 private residences to the existing 77, comprising 25 villas and 44 chalets ranging from 195 to 240 sq m (2,100 to 2,600 sq ft).

The two-bedroom ensuite chalets feature expansive living spaces with sophisticated interiors and private pools. The four-bedroom villas include sea views, private pools, spacious open-air entertaining setups and have a total gross area of 710 sq m (7,650 sq ft). The only two five-bedroom villas in the collection are custom designed to the owner’s discretion and occupy expansion plots with uninterrupted views of the Red Sea.
