Egyptians are looking forward to the arrival of a new InterContinental-branded hotel in the country.

Strong regional growth

IHG has signed a management agreement with Pyramids Group for Urban Development to open InterContinental Cairo New Capital in early 2026. Remarkably, it’s the sixth IHG hotel to be signed in Egypt this year alone.

Haitham Mattar, managing director in India, Middle East and Africa for IHG, said: “Egypt is an important market for us in the region, and we are delighted to be a part of and contribute to the economic growth of country with a number of new signings this year, including the latest addition to our portfolio – InterContinental Cairo New Capital.

“We are honoured to partner with Pyramids Group for Urban Development who have a distinct vision for their 45,000 sq m mixed-use development in the prime location of the New Administrative Capital in Cairo. We are confident that the new hotel will add great value to this development and cater to its elite clientele as well as take the legacy of our luxury portfolio forward with a best-in-class, brand-defining product.”

What to expect at InterContinental’s latest outpost

InterContinental Cairo New Capital will have 300 luxurious guestrooms and amenities aimed at leisure and business travellers, including an all-day dining and specialty restaurants, a rooftop bar, a café lounge, eight meeting rooms and a business centre. Visitors will also be able to unwind in an onsite spa spanning 800 sq m, outdoor and indoor pools, and a 250 sq m health club.

The hotel will place guests in the heart of the New Administrative Capital, close to landmarks including the Presidential Palace, Government Square and the Opera.

Hisham el Kholy, chairman of Pyramids Group for Urban Development, added: “The concept of the development, its size and quality of the masterplan makes it a unique destination. With IHG’s rich history and local experience in the country, combined with their international standards and global systems, we are confident that the hotel will be a great success and offer our guests a luxurious stay within the new capital in Cairo.”

IHG currently has five hotels in Egypt, with another nine in the pipeline.
