Cairo welcomes a new gem in its luxury accommodations – the Waldorf Astoria Cairo Heliopolis, an exciting addition to Hilton’s iconic luxury hotel brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. This expansion marks the brand’s first footprint in Egypt and the African continent.
Situated in the historic city of Heliopolis, the hotel is a stone’s throw away from Egypt’s main presidential palace and other significant attractions like Downtown Cairo, Khan El Khalili Bazaar, and the eagerly awaited Grand Egyptian Museum. The emerging New Administrative Capital is also effortlessly accessible.
The property, showcasing 252 sumptuously designed rooms and suites, is a delightful fusion of modern sophistication and indigenous charm. Alongside, the Waldorf Astoria Cairo Heliopolis boasts four exceptional dining venues, a world-class spa, and expansive event spaces.
Simon Vincent, of Hilton, remarked on Egypt’s increasing tourist influx, with 11.7 million visitors in 2022. He emphasized the significance of Cairo as a starting point for many to explore Egypt and expressed Hilton’s enthusiasm in introducing the Waldorf Astoria luxury to this prime location.
Designed by the renowned Adrian Barboza Design based in London, the hotel’s interiors are an ode to Cairo’s rich history. Guests are welcomed by a mesmerizing atrium lobby, influenced by the eye of the Pharaonic god, Ra. The decor elegantly integrates ancient Egyptian themes, with the Waldorf Astoria clock – a hallmark feature – taking center stage, drawing inspiration from the River Nile and Pharaonic architecture.
Dino Michael, from Hilton Luxury Brands, underscored the significance of this launch as evidence of Hilton’s dedication to expanding luxury offerings worldwide. He added that the hotel is all set to provide unique experiences to its guests in Egypt.
Delving into the guest rooms, one finds serenity juxtaposed with cultural motifs, especially the white and blue lotus symbols. Every aspect, from plush velvet fabrics, marble mosaic tiles, hand-painted ceramics to local artworks, resonates with Egypt’s storied past while promising a luxurious sanctuary.
The Waldorf Astoria legacy of culinary brilliance is palpable at the Waldorf Astoria Cairo Heliopolis. From the Mediterranean-flavored Brasserie Ayda, the global signature lounge Peacock Alley, to Bar Raa’s sophisticated offerings and the refreshing Le Jardin Pool Bar, guests are in for a gourmet treat.
For wellness aficionados, the Waldorf Astoria Spa, slated to open later this year, promises an opulent experience with treatments reminiscent of ancient Egyptian traditions, including the Psammo Therapy.
For event organizers and celebrants, the hotel offers impeccable event spaces, capable of hosting up to 2,000 guests, backed by a dedicated planning team.
