The W Hotels brand is set to expand into Egypt with the 2020 opening of The W Sharm El Sheikh and The Residences at W Sharm El Sheikh. 

Located on the Nabq Bay in the resort town of Sharm El Sheikh, the new property will be able to serve as a base for guests looking to check out the region's top-tier diving, as well as the hotel's 300 meters of beach along the Red Sea. 

The W Sharm El Sheikh will be a 20 minute drive from the Sharm El Sheikh International Airport and overlooking the Straits of Tiran at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba, the hotel will have 350 guestrooms and suites, including two Extreme WOW Suites (the W brand’s interpretation of the Presidential Suite). The Residences at W Sharm El Sheikh will have 50 branded residences with an exclusive lounge. Residents will enjoy access to the facilities and services that are available at the hotel.

Facilities at the hotel will include an all-day dining venue, two specialty restaurants, a destination bar and W Lounge (the W brand’s take on the traditional hotel lobby). Other amenities will include a spa, FIT fitness facility, a tennis court, WIRED 24-hour business center, and an outdoor pool deck and bar.
