Hyatt Centric Cairo West Hotel is set to become the second Hyatt-branded property in Cairo, Egypt’s capital city when it opens in 2024.

The 283-room hotel, including 26 suites, joins the 2021-opened Hyatt Regency Cairo West in Cairo’s well-established Pyramids Heights Business Park.

“We are proud to work with ALDAU Development to bring the Hyatt Centric brand to Egypt,” said Ludwig Bouldoukian, regional vice president of development, Middle East and Africa, Hyatt. “This signing is an exciting milestone as the hotel will mark the Hyatt Centric brand debut in Africa, showcasing our commitment to enhancing our lifestyle portfolio, and growing our brand presence in markets that matter most to our guests and World of Hyatt members.”

The design-friendly hotel will have elements of the local culture with décor that includes Egyptian crafts and an art wall, as well as a pool and beautiful landscaped gardens.

“With the city’s main attractions easily accessible, including the new Grand Egyptian Museum  (opening in early 2024) and the historic Giza Pyramids complex, the hotel will be the perfect fit for business and leisure travelers looking for accommodations in this increasingly popular Cairo West district,” said Eng. Bassel Sami Saad, chairman, ALDAU Development.

Another attraction for guests is to explore one of Cairo’s biggest and latest malls, situated about a 15-minute drive from the hotel. The Mall of Egypt is where visitors can find the best local and international brands and retailers, as well as Africa’s first indoor ski slope, a 21 multiscreen cinema, and the Magic Planet family entertainment center.

Hyatt Centric is a brand of full-service lifestyle hotels located in prime destinations. Each Centric-branded property offers unique social spaces in the lobby for guests to connect with others. The bar and restaurant are designed to be local hot spots with exceptional Egyptian cuisine and signature cocktails.

Hyatt Centric Cairo West property will be approximately 60 minutes by car from Cairo International Airport and 20 minutes from Sphinx International Airport.

Come Face-to-Face with Mountain Gorillas on a Trek in Uganda

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
