At the beginning of the year Movenpick Hotels & Resorts (MH&R) and the holding company, Arab World Egypt Air Hotels (AWEH), signed papers prolonging the management contract for the Cairo-Heliopolis Movenpick Hotel. The international hotel chain, whose headquarters is located in Switzerland, has been running the successful 415-room hotel at the Egyptian capital`s airport for the last 17 years.
This hotel located at Cairo Airport, which is tailored completely to the needs of business travellers and tourists alike, joined Movenpick Hotels & Resorts in 1985 and since then has enjoyed an excellent reputation. As we have total confidence in Swiss hospitality, in the service offered, the first-rate quality of the entire establishment and in the know-how of the Management, we now, for the third consecutive time, extend our contract with Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. This is the very clear statement issued by Kamal Zaki, Managing Director of AWEH.
And Andreas Mattmuller, Senior Vice-President for MH&R in the Middle East, explains: It is impossible to imagine our Egypt programme without the Heliopolis Hotel as it is the perfect complement to our seven holiday resorts and the two Nile cruise ships that we operate in the land of the Pharaohs.
Movenpick Hotels & Resorts is currently represented with 45 hotels in 12 countries and focuses on two hotel types, the business and conference hotel and the holiday resort. Whilst the business hotels are located near the city centre or the airport and offer an optimum infrastructure for the business traveller, the holiday resorts are situated in outstanding destinations. The hotel group is represented in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy, the Czech Republic, Jordan, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Saudi-Arabia and Qatar.
