Meridien launches new Luxor property


Le Meridien has expanded its portfolio of properties in Egypt with the opening last month of a new 302-room hotel in the tourist destination of Luxor.

The group already operates hotels in Cairo, as well as a resort at Makadi Bay on the Red Sea, and this latest addition will give tourists and incentive and meeting organisers a new gateway to ancient Egypt, according to Sami Zoghbi, regional managing director, Middle East and West Asia for Le Meridien.

Conference facilities at Le Meridien Luxor, catering for up to 1,000 delegates, aim to kick-start demand from the MICE sector (meeting, incentives, conferences and exhibitions), where the hotel group sees great potential in the medium-term.
