Orascom Hotel Management opens Bellevue Beach Hotel in El Gouna
In addition to first-class infrastructure, year-round sunshine and an idyllic landscape El Gouna boasts 17 hotels with a total of 2,707 rooms, including the newly opened Bellevue Beach Hotel. The 554-room Mövenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna had previously released 134 rooms from its portfolio. Under the management of Orascom Hotel Development these rooms were rebranded and are now operated as “Bellevue Beach Hotel”. The four-star property offers all amenities and services for a perfect family retreat. Instead of formerly one resort there are now two: The Bellevue Beach Resort and the Mövenpick Resort & Spa, which concentrates on the remaining 420 fully renovated rooms and suites managed by the Mövenpick group.
Following a mutual agreement with Mövenpick Resors and Hotels, Orascom Management has assumed the management of the newly opened Bellevue Beach Hotel in El Gouna. Nestled on a quaint hillside in the exclusive Hills residential area the property offers fantastic views of the secluded bay and a private beach, complemented by beautifully landscaped gardens and the hotel’s own turquoise lagoon.
The Bellevue Beach Hotel provides a wide choice of accommodation options. Lavish villas and family rooms with connecting doors along with family-friendly entertainment make the four-star property a perfect family retreat right at the heart of El Gouna.
“While the Bellevue Beach Hotel is a great addition to our management portfolio the hotel, too, really benefited from this change,” explains Jens Freise, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for OHM. “The hotel has its own unique character and the fact that it now is an independent property provides guests with a cosy feeling of intimacy and privacy.” The Hotel also features three pools, three restaurants and bars, and access to the Angsana Spa.

About El Gouna
25 kilometres from Hurghada International Airport and a four-hour flight from Germany, El Gouna is nestled on a 36 million square metre stretch of land between the Red Sea coast and Egypt’s Eastern Desert Mountains. The resort, founded some 25 years ago by Egyptian entrepreneur Samih Sawiris, extends over ten kilometres of beachfront with many quaint lagoons and acclaimed architecture featuring modern Arabic design. There are two main hubs of activity: Kafr El Gouna (downtown) and the Abu Tig Marina, both offering a wide choice of restaurants, bars, shisha cafés, shopping arcades and service facilities.
El Gouna is also known as Egypt’s most environmentally friendly holiday destination – another reason for many Germans to settle here. The resort’s approximately 20,000 residents and their families benefit from facilities like playschools, day care centres as well as international and national schools. People looking to buy a home in El Gouna may choose from a wide range of options, for any budget and taste, from stylish apartments in the marina to luxury villas with private jetty. The resort not only boasts 2,700 private villas and apartments, it also has its own waste recycling plant and water management system, a farm, a brewery and a winery. Excellent medical care is provided through a fully equipped hospital with international standards, including a decompression chamber and a dialysis unit. 365 days of sunshine per year make activities like kiteboarding, surfing, wakeboarding, parasailing, horseback riding, golfing, diving, sailing or quad tours great fun. And with a total of 17 hotels, guests are sure to find accommodation options to suit any budget, from basic family hotels to five-star luxury resorts. Construction of El Gouna’s second 18-hole championship golf course is underway.
