IHG and real-estate specialist Mountain View to open properties in four areas of the country over the next seven years
IHG Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to open four properties under its Hotel Indigo brand in Egypt.
The group will partner with real-estate specialist Mountain View to open the new-build hotels, each in distinct regions.
The first property due to open, in July 2024, is the 100-room Hotel Indigo Mountain View North Coast. It will offer views of the Mediterranean Sea and facilities will include a spa, health club, pool, high-end retail and dining areas, and 165sq m of meetings and events space.
It will be followed in January 2026 by the 200-key Hotel Indigo Mountain View iCity New Cairo. Located close to the American University, it will cater to business travellers.
The remaining hotels are both scheduled to open in January 2028. The 200-room Hotel Indigo Mountain View iCity 6th of October City will be located in the Giza Governorate, 32km from Cairo, while the 150-room Hotel Indigo Mountain View Ain El Sokhna will boast a tranquil setting amid mountains and beaches.
Commenting on the agreement, IHG’s Haitham Mattar, managing director for India, the Middle East and Africa, said: “Egypt is one of the most dynamic tourism markets in the region with a great vision for the future of leisure and business travel. We have a long-standing legacy in the country and are proud to continue to support the development of its hospitality sector through the introduction of our boutique lifestyle brand, Hotel Indigo.
“Our partnership with Mountain View, one of the most forward-thinking developers in Egypt, is testament to our continued commitment to bolstering the hospitality sector with more versatile properties, diverse offerings and immersive experiences for domestic as well as new segments of international visitors that are expected to visit Egypt as travel returns. Through this partnership, we aim to showcase not only the vitality of the Hotel Indigo brand but also the emerging and established regions of the country to a new group of Hotel Indigo guests.”
IHG launched Hotel Indigo in 2004 and the brand currently has over 120 hotels in more than 20 countries, with over 100 hotels in the pipeline. The Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown was the first of the brand in the region last year, and there are pipeline properties in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman.
