Alamein Hotel Returns to Egyptian CoastPublish by : Hospitality Design ,
Dubai-based firm H2R Design has revealed its restoration of Egypt’s storied Alamein Hotel along the country’s northern Mediterranean coast. The redesign emphasizes nostalgia with vintage touches, while also establishing an modern, boho-chic setting for new experiences.
“Alamein Hotels has been open since the 1960’s and throughout its existence has had a prestigious and loyal guest following. We intended to retain these guests and also revive their experience while encouraging a new generation of visitors,” says H2R partner Jacqui Shaddock. “When transforming the hotel from the day to night scenarios, we focused on maintaining an intimate ambiance that would instantly make guests feel at ease.”
Welcoming visitors with a central double-height colonnade and atrium, the hotel lobby embraces the backdrop of its beachfront setting. Natural, whitewashed timber accents the light breeziness of interior furnishings, while a palette of muted blues, light grays, off-whites, and deep blue accents recall the changing tones of the nearby sea. Metal is also incorporated into the design for added elegance. A residential-style ambiance permeates through each suite and villa, all of which organically complement the outdoor scenery. Each of the 190 guestrooms is each crafted to convey the legacy of the property against a refined, soothing palette.
