New Build in Egypt - Steigenberger Pure Lifestyle in Hurghada to Open in November 2018

Germany, Frankfurt, Germany. March 01, 2018

Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts are set to grow in Egypt. Plans are in place for the nine existing hotels in the country to be joined by the Steigenberger Pure Lifestyle in Hurghada from November 2018 onwards. The hotel will be run by the developer ALDAU Development via a franchise agreement and be positioned within the high-end five-star lifestyle segment. It will form part of the Mega Steigenberger ALDAU Resort, which has already won a total of 63 international awards. The resort's present hotels, the Steigenberger ALDAU Beach and the Steigenberger Aqua Magic, are renowned for their high level of hospitality and the outstanding service they provide. State-of-the art conference rooms and a unique water park also make them an ideal destination for all target groups.

The Steigenberger Pure Lifestyle will also encompass a whole new dimension of luxury by operating as a suite hotel only. 110 suites, each of which will boast a minimum size of 55 square metres, mean that plenty of space and comfort will be on offer. The hotel will also provide a full range of gastronomic delights. Various restaurants will serve up Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, and a gourmet market with eight live cooking stations will provide plenty of choice and ensure that all requirements are catered for 24 hours a day. Guests will also enjoy access to a private sandy beach with its own modern Beach Club and co-use of all pool facilities at the adjacent hotels - the Steigenberger ALDAU Beach and the Steigenberger Aqua Magic.

“Growth on international soil is highly important to Deutsche Hospitality,” commented CEO Thomas Willms. “This new build will deepen our partnership with ALDAU Development, and we are confident that the Steigenberger Pure Lifestyle Resort will turn out to be another complete success.”

Lars Geweyer, CEO of ALDAU Development, also expressed his delight at this new addition to the company's portfolio. “After nineteen years of excellent cooperation with Deutsche Hospitality, the time is now ripe to enhance the Steigenberger ALDAU Resort by launching an impressive premium product. We will, of course, do everything in our power to retain our status as the leading quality provider in the western part of the Red Sea.”

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
