The St. Regis Cairo, the brand’s flagship property on the African continent, is slated to be Cairo’s most luxurious address. The project, designed by Michael Graves Architecture & Design, is one of nearly forty new luxury properties set to open in 2018 under the Marriott umbrella. The nearly 40 new hotel properties coming in 2018 span the hospitality giant’s eight distinct luxury brands—The Ritz-Carlton, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, St. Regis, W Hotels, The Luxury Collection, EDITION and JW Marriott. The six-star St. Regis Cairo, is perched on the bank of the majestic Nile River and offers glorious views of the ancient waterway and vibrant city through which it courses. Offering a distant presence in the city’s skyline, the project is composed of a 37-story tower that was designed to maximize the seductive views along the Corniche, provide state-of-the-art accommodations, and support St. Regis’ goal of providing intuitive and truly bespoke hospitality experiences.

While contemporary and chic in design, the character of the architecture and the interiors recall Arabic motifs and features that include the use of screens, echoing the traditional mashrabiyas of traditional Arabic architecture, arched and vaulted forms, and roof gardens accented by gurgling water features which serve to physically and psychically cool those who partake of the spaces.

This property is the embodiment of Michael Graves Architecture & Design’s philosophy rooted in unique designs that reflect their physical and cultural contexts.

The St. Regis Cairo combines contemporary luxury and elegance with regional influence to capture the spirit of the city and region and provide an experience for guests which will be forever, indelibly etched in their memories.
