Exotic new resort to boost InterContinental Red Sea Lure

A stunning InterContinental resort opens later this year on Egypt’s Red Sea coast, creating a superb new location for getaway breaks, conferences and incentives.
The 453-room & suite InterContinental Abu Soma Resort Red Sea will come under the spotlight at the Mediterranean Travel Fair, which takes place at Cairo International Convention and Exhibition Centre from September 16-18.
Egypt’s third InterContinental resort shares the three-day exhibition stage with new InterContinental and Holiday Inn hotels opening next year as part of CityStars Heliopolis Cairo, a spectacular $600 million development combining shopping, entertainment, office and residential facilities.
“We’re going to enjoy introducing the travel trade to the beautiful new InterContinental resort at Abu Soma and the two new CityStars hotels,” said Chris Moloney, Chief Operating Officer, InterContinental Hotels Group, Middle East and Africa. “These are three very impressive properties which highlight our commitment to continue setting the standard for hotel development in Egypt, and the region as a whole.”
InterContinental Hotels Group currently manages 71 InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels in the Middle East and North Africa, including eight in Egypt.
Located between Hurghada and Safaga on Egypt’s Red Sea Coast , the InterContinental Abu Soma Resort Red Sea is highlighted by golden sandy beaches, turquoise waters, palm trees and stunning desert island scenery. Guest rooms include royal, deluxe, executive and junior suites, all with sea views. Guests have a choice of eight international restaurants and bars, a shopping arcade and beauty salon.
