The move marks Rotana's debut in the capital city of Egypt and the brand's first property in the Mediterranean coast town of El Alamein, bringing the total number of Rotana properties in Egypt to three.

The first contracted project, Lake Residence, under Al Marasem development, is located within the Fifth Square project in New Cairo. The second project is Marina Way Lagoon’s

Marina Bay which extends over an area of 14,120 meters in a distinguished location within

the Marina El Alamein tourism hub on the North Coast. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea,

the hotel rooms and units offer breathtaking views and boast their own private beach.


Offering guests the perfect combination of comfort and luxury for a pleasant and

memorable stay, both properties are fully furnished with a wide array of modern

amenities meticulously designed to provide the ultimate in comfort and convenience.


Al Marasem Development and Marina Way Lagoon partnered with Rotana to manage and

operate the hotel projects, capitalising on the brand’s legacy and its experience in operating an extensive portfolio of hospitality brands in the region. With Rotana’s superior level of expertise and deep-rooted knowledge in property management, this partnership aims to achieve the highest return on investment and provision of luxurious services with attractive competitive advantages.

We are honoured and grateful to His Excellency Sheikh Khalid bin Laden for entrusting Rotana with the exclusive management of these outstanding hospitality projects in the Republic of Egypt.”
