The Ritz-Carlton, Sharm El Sheikh gets a half-a-million-dollar facelift

In a quarterly ritual, the 30-month old Ritz-Carlton<.>, Sharm El Sheikh underwent a $500,000 US renovation. In 196 days, 120 gentlemen took part in restoring the resort to its original grandeur.



The whole process consumed 15 tons of bright white paint, 13,208 gallons of concrete, 25 cubic meters of wood, 12,000 bricks and 100 meters of luxury tent cloth.



The Ritz-Carlton, Sharm El Sheikh is renowned for the bright white color of its 18 buildings. As beautiful as it is, white is a very difficult color to maintain in the desert. In time, the bright white turns to sandy white or off-white, which why repainting the resort consumes hundreds of gallons of white paint, said Ricco DeBlank, the resort`s general manager.



After the refurbishment, The Marquee, the resort`s unique conference facility, and the three function rooms, Tiran I, Tiran II and Aqaba, are refreshed and ready for the upcoming meetings and incentives season.



The resort`s three award-winning gourmet restaurants, La Luna, Blue Ginger and Fayrouz, were repainted and the hand-made ceilings and floors were polished, while the spa and fitness center had the floors replaced, walls painted and equipment maintained. Even the walkways and passages between the resort`s lush gardens and pools were renewed.



All of the efforts would not be complete without the renovation of the resort`s 237 rooms, 45 suites, 20 Club level rooms, 5 Club level suites and the Club lounge. Walls, ceilings, floors and furniture all restored and retouched.



We are not selling a room and a meal; we are selling a promise – A promise to provide an exclusive experience that will enliven the senses and instill well being, said Ricco DeBlank.



Winner of Best Family Resort in the Middle East, Best Landscape Design in the Middle East and awarded The Ultimate Service Award, The Ritz-Carlton, Sharm El Sheikh offers guests a unique experience with magnificent surroundings. Set in a tropical oasis of pools and lush foliage overlooking the Red Sea, The Ritz-Carlton, Sharm El Sheikh is comprised of 307 rooms and suites including The Club level.
