Retail and Relaxation: First Mall and Poolside Leisure

The First Mall, accessible directly through the hotel, offers a curated selection of luxury brands and dining options, providing a convenient and upscale shopping experience for hotel guests and visitors. The convenience of having the First Mall attached to the hotel meant that luxury shopping was just a few steps away.

Lounging by the water, let the warmth of the Egyptian sun envelop you, and as evening falls, the live music will gently carry you through the night.
