Mandarin Oriental to debut in Egypt with a luxury hotel in Cairo

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group announced a management agreement to rebrand the historic Shepheard Hotel in Cairo, Egypt. This will be the group’s first hotel in Egypt and further expands the brand’s portfolio in the region.

The project developer is Al Sharif for Tourism and Hotels, an Egyptian Closed Joint Stock Company that is a subsidiary of Al Sharif Group Holding, the Saudi holding group based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, that won the concession to redevelop the site from the Egyptian General Company for Tourism and Hotels in 2020.

The Shepheard Hotel first opened its doors in 1841 and remains a landmark in the city, respected by the local community and well known internationally.

A comprehensive renovation of the property is already underway and Paris-based interior designer, Sybille de Margerie, is tasked with preserving the building’s heritage design while enhancing the facilities and services.
