Turkish expansion in the face of luxury hotel chains originally from Turkey continues in the resorts of Egypt. So, soon in Makadi near Hurghada tourists will be received by the Xanadu Makadi Bay hotel with 815 rooms. The hotel is owned by OTI Hotels & Resorts CO is a company of Turkish origin, which includes such well-known tour operators in Russia as Coral-Travel and Sanmar, as well as Royal Flight.
The new hotel in Hurghada is located next to Makadi Bay. According to the representative of the holding Hakan Yilmaz, the hotel will offer tourists a high-class concept – High Class All Inclusive. He also told the Egyptian media that 17 of the group's 22 hotels are located in Turkey, 4 are already in Egypt and 1 is in Vietnam, 4 of them are the property of the group, and the rest are franchised.
It should be noted that the OTI holding, which began operations in 1992, operates in various areas of tourism. In particular, it includes the tour operator brands Coral Travel and Sunmar, which are well known to Russian tourists. In the “pre-Covid” times, the holding brought 1.2 – 1.5 million tourists from different countries to Antalya alone. As for hotel projects, they started in 2020 – then the holding began a large-scale project to create its own hotel chain OTI Hotels & resorts international. It includes hotels under the brand Seven Seas Resort & Hotels, as well as the aforementioned brands Otium Hotels and Xanadu Resort.
Recall that last year another Turkish hotel chain, popular with Russian tourists, Rixos, also “came” to Hurghada. Rixos Premium Magawish Suites & villas. The hotel has 410 suites and villas. The well-known Turkish chain in Egypt does not plan to stop there: next to Rixos Premium Magawish Suites & Villas, approximately in 2023, the second stage of the hotel will appear, where a large water park, additional rooms and other infrastructure facilities are expected.
