Rotana opens Palma Bay Rotana Resort on Egypt's North Coast

The new four-star resort marks Rotana’s second property in Egypt and adds 176 keys to its global portfolio.

Rotana has announced the opening of Palma Bay Rotana, located in New Alamein on Egypt's North Coast. Joining the hotel brand's first Egypt property – Grand Rotana Resort & Spa in Sharm El Sheikh – the new four-star resort brings Rotana’s total footprint in the country to 702 keys.

Perfectly positioned at Marina 5, the premier resort delivers an unmatched hospitality experience, marrying elegance with the exceptional quality synonymous with Rotana. With its coveted seaside location, Palma Bay Rotana offers premium services and modern accommodation options for all travellers.

Philip Barnes, CEO of Rotana, said: “Further growing our expansion plans in the region, Palma Bay Rotana Resort marks an exciting milestone for Rotana as our second operational property in Egypt. With a wide range of world-class amenities and scenic ocean views, Palma Bay Rotana is designed to offer the perfect beach escape for travellers seeking relaxation and adventure. Egypt continues to be a key market for us with tremendous potential and we look forward to welcoming guests to this stunning destination and providing them with opportunities to create ‘Treasured Time’ with loved ones.”

The brand-new resort boasts 176 elegantly appointed rooms, with configurations ranging from cosy standard rooms to expansive one-, two- and three-bedroom suites. Styled with a modern contemporary aesthetic, guests can select their preferred panorama, from captivating ocean panoramas to a peaceful lagoon vista or views of the vibrant neighbourhood. 

As enticing as the views, resort amenities include a Bodylines Health and Fitness Centre, massage rooms, complete with sauna and steam rooms, and three outdoor swimming pools, including one specifically designed for children as well as a fully equipped gym, padel and tennis courts, a beach volleyball spot and a multipurpose court for football, volleyball and basketball. A dedicated kids' playground is also available for younger guests. 

Guests at Palma Bay Rotana will also be able to savour culinary delights across six diverse dining venues, including Atrium, a cosy lobby lounge and terrace; Horizon, a bustling all-day dining restaurant; Nasma, an all-day shisha lounge on the beach; two relaxed pool bars (The Deck and Aquarius) and Whispers, an energetic beach bar. 

Those with business needs will appreciate Mirage, the resort’s versatile meeting space accommodating up to 30 guests. Bathed in natural light and equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, the venue is ideal for business, private or social events, ensuring a seamless and memorable experience.
