InterContinental has appointed Franck Naulleau as the General Manager for the new InterContinental Resort Taba Heights, Egypt.
Naulleau joined the InterContinental Hotels Group a year ago as General Manager of the InterContinental Sharm El Sheikh and is looking forward to the challenge of working closely with the team in further building the hotel’s reputation as one the most premium resort developments in the region, encompassing 5km of beachfront on the Sinai’s Red Sea’s coast.
The resort boasts 503 guest rooms and suites, 11 restaurants and bars, swimming pools and an aqua centre surrounded by white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and stunning desert scenery.
“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to manage this stunning property, which is proving a major attraction to tourists from around the globe with its prime location and short traveling distance to amazing places such as the Taba Protected Area, Mount Sinai, the amazing Blue Desert and some of the Middle East’s top dive spots,” said Naulleau.
Michel Augier, Acting Chief Operating Officer, InterContinental Hotels Group, Middle East & Africa said, “Naulleau proved himself in InterContinental Sharm El Sheikh and we wish him continued success within the beautiful resort of Taba Heights where we are confident he will put this property firmly on the Middle East map, with several exciting, new world-class facilities being introduced in 2007.”
