The newly opened Hilton Alexandria King’s Ranch in Borg El Arab offers a perfect retreat away from the bustle of the coastal city and the Sahel crowd.

The luxurious and contemporary Hilton Alexandria King’s Ranch opened its doors for a soft launch in August, and is now officially open. Ideally located in the King Mariout area on the outskirts of the city and its chaos, it is close enough to the manufacturing and industrial zone of Borg El Arab to be a welcome retreat for expats and Egyptians working nearby. For those coming in from the city, the hotel is just 20 minutes from the Cairo-Alexandria desert road, and for those arriving from further it is only 15 minutes from Borg El Arab International Airport. It is adjacent to an Equestrian Club and Borg El Arab International Stadium, so if you want to take in a little sports action this is the place to be.
We arrived at the Hilton Alexandria King’s Ranch for our two-day visit, where everything was tailored to make our stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. We started with a tour of the property, which offers 199 stunning guest rooms and suites designed in a modern style and an exquisite Executive Lounge. The rooms scream elegance and sophistication. All units are elegantly furnished with the heavenly Serta beds, HD TVs, a business desk, and coffeemaking facilities to provide the ultimate relaxation experience. The room service and the housekeeping are available around the clock.
After the tour we headed to the pool area, which is simply breathtaking. At 2350 square meters, the pool is the largest in the city, and we soaked up the sun and enjoyed our favorite cocktail on the sun lounger. Families with kids will enjoy the adjacent kids’ pool and playground. If the weather is too cool for an outdoor dip, rejuvenate by their cozy indoor heated pool.
Around the pool area are a wide variety of food and beverage outlets such as Axis Bar, which hosts fun events such as New Year’s eves and parties.[caption id="attachment_502647" align="alignnone" width="620"] Axis Bar[/caption]
Le Terrace, which is open around the clock, was one of those few places where I wished time would stop so I could spend more time indulging.[caption id="attachment_502648" align="alignnone" width="620"] Le Terrace[/caption]
For dinner, we were booked a table at Zaatar, an authentic Lebanese restaurant that offers a variety of exquisite and perfectly cooked cuisine. Overlooking the pool, we indulged in delicious traditional mezzas and tender grills — I really doubt that the food would taste any better in Lebanon itself.
The property has five state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a large Layalli Ballroom, which can host up to 460 people. If you’re looking for a fairytale wedding, the Hilton King’s Ranch also offers an open-air venue for weddings that boasts the most spacious open-air garden in town.
