Where: The St. Regis Cairo, Egypt
The Lowdown: Located at the north end of the Corniche, in the heart of bustling Cairo, this St. Regis hotel sits along the River Nile towering 39-stories above the inspiring, complicated metropolis. Introducing unprecedented standards of hospitality and luxury to this beautiful destination, Michael Graves has created a balance of refinement and splendor – a reflection of the vibrant mix of history, culture, tradition, and glamour of Cairo itself.
Stylish Eats: The culinary options at The St. Regis Cairo will leave you bewildered, spoiled for choice with the tastes of La Zisa. With southern Italian cuisine, it presents an elevated experience that will deliver you la dolce vita. Down the Silk Road to Tianma, here you will be taken on a journey that will entice your taste buds through the culinary arts of China and south-east Asia.
Suite Talk: The heritage of the region can be felt through references in the interiors, delivered with a modern twist. The dark woods and rich textures are all influenced by Arabesque décor and equipped with modern amenities. The comfort of modern amenities interwoven with the intricately embroidered décor will quiet your mind as the city bustles around you. It is a beacon of luxury overlooking a river that historically has been considered the longest river in the world.
Insider’s Tip: Embark on a journey through time and tradition in The St. Regis bar. The Pink Sun mural fills the space with thoughtfully curated light. Experience an evening soiree at The St. Regis Bar under bejeweled paneling and bronze and wood carvings embellished with flashes of shimmering gold. The references of ancient Egypt and the birth of modern civilization are some that cannot be missed. The St. Regis is also home to a very unique set of traditions – the Signature Rituals – which envelope you in a world of glamor and mystery. We love the 1922 Afternoon Tea at The Water Garden which sees Ancient Egyptian inspiration throughout, from the golden touches in the cutlery and food items to the menu that is presented on papyrus paper in a treasury box with the resemblance of the paintings in King Tut’s tomb.
Vogue Verdict: An effortless combination of authentic regional hospitality with over a hundred years of iconic The St. Regis tradition.
