    Ancient Sands, a brand new luxury resort and residential project based in the Red Sea town of El Gouna, will begin welcoming guests to its first five-star apartment hotel in April 2014. Offering an oasis of luxury, Ancient Sands Golf Resort will combine the best of Egyptian tradition with western style comfort.Located in the Hilltop Village, Ancient Sands Golf Resort will consist of five individual buildings, each with its own garden and swimming pool and will comprise a range of one, two and three bedroom apartments. The hotel complex, which will open in two phases, will initially offer 114 apartments in April 2014, 91 of which will be reserved for holidaymakers visiting El Gouna. The second phase is set for operation in 2016 and will bring the total number of units to 261.

    Each apartment will feature a living room, a fully-equipped kitchen and modern bathroom facilities and provide either lagoon, Red Sea or mountain views. Guests will also enjoy full concierge, house-keeping and room service amenities in addition to communal areas including a large main pool, a children’s pool, a piazza of bars, restaurants, cafes, boutique and convenience shops and a souk market nestled among the buildings.

    Jens Freise, Senior Director Marketing & Sales for Destinations & Hotels in Orascom Development, says “Ancient Sands is an exciting prospect for us. With El Gouna an already well-established year-round destination on Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera offering a range of hotels to suit all budgets, the new five-star apartment hotel is the first of its kind here and will add an air of opulence to this private town. Unique additions such as these as are intrinsic to maintaining the rich variety of the El Gouna community.”
