Occupancy rates in Egypt’s hotels have returned to pre-revolution levels as tourists regain confidence from the country’s strong political progress. Experts on the ground have highlighted the popular Red Sea Resort of Hurghada as showing particular strength with tourism surging and hotels there recording strong occupancy levels.
The Steigenberger Beach Hotel, the Serenity Makadi Heights Hotel and the Hilton Golden Mile Hotel which are all located in Hurghada witnessed impressive occupancy rates of 70%, 89% and 92% respectively this month.
Hilton already have a large presence in Egypt, however they plan on expanding their operations there significantly given the strong performance of their Hurghada hotels.
Hilton Worldwide’s Middle East area president, Rudi Jagersbacher said:
“Within another few years we anticipate growing to twenty properties across the country and this underpins our confidence in the long-term resilience of the Egyptian tourism market”
