Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced plans for an "extensive" portfolio expansion in Egypt with the addition of new hotels, residential offerings and property enhancements.
In partnership with real estate development corporation Talaat Moustafa Group (TMG), Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Cairo Capital at Madinaty and Four Seasons Hotel Luxor will be introduced in Egypt, further building upon hotelier's multi-million dollar property enhancements at Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Sharm El Sheikh, which doubled the offerings of the existing property with new accommodations, dining outlets, leisure activities, and more.
"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," says Bart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management.
Introducing Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Cairo Capital at Madinaty
Located in the heart of the capital, the new property is anticipated to open in 2025. Set within the Madinaty development on 185 hectares (460 acres) of parkland, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Cairo Capital at Madinaty will be a destination for those who wish to visit the ancient metropolis of Cairo and explore the modern extension of New Cairo Capital.
Surrounded by gardens, the Hotel will feature 346 rooms and suites, while the Private Residences will be comprised of 107 villas and 80 luxury residences.

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 sprinkled throughout the property.
The Hotel and Private Residences will also feature a standalone spa and fitness facility. Across several private treatment rooms, an array of tennis and multi-sport courts, guided group classes, and fitness equipment, visitors can be treated to an intentional space that has been designed for the art of wellbeing.
The Hotel's ballroom features vaulted ceilings and an outdoor event lawn space to accommodate occasions big and small.
Off property, the destination will offer guests, residents and their families access to additional gourmet restaurants, golf courses, retail outlets, private schools and a suite of attractions for all to enjoy in New Cairo Capital and Madinaty.
