Westin Cairo: Hotel Review

With its golf course and spa, the Westin Cairo is all about wellbeing. And it’s perfect for a staycation. Here’s an ultimate Westin Cairo hotel review.

There are jogging routes through the leafy hotel grounds. Four different chocolate balls greet you when you enter a room, along with a leaflet about their nutritional benefits.

The Westin Cairo Golf Resort & Spa Katameya Dunes is perfect for a weekend getaway – or if you’re looking for a quiet place to stay in the Cairo suburbs.

The hotel is tucked inside the upscale district of New Cairo. And it’s far removed from downtown’s traffic and city noise.

The grounds at the Westin Cairo are sweeping and green with the laid-back vibe of a seaside resort.

You’ll quickly forget that you’re in the city and that the Ring Road is nearby. The air is fragrant with jasmine bushes and hoopoe birds – with striking black and white wings – graze on a grassy lawn.

The hotel’s 135 guest rooms and suites give the property an airy feel.

The massive grounds are anchored by a 27-hole championship golf course of verdant fairways and meandering lagoons.

Breakfast buffet

The hotel’s breakfast buffet is smaller than those at high-rise hotels but it’s focused on quality.

There are superfoods like salmon and quinoa, and an array of freshly squeezed juices and foods prepared with healthy cooking methods. There are also pastries and more decadent options.

All about wellness

The state-of-the-art fitness studio rents out running shoes and other gear. And you can play a round of golf with the hotel’s instructors.

“Healthy” means different things to different people. It can be an ugly word when it’s associated with punishing workouts and strict diets.

But there’s no self-deprivation of that kind at Westin Cairo. It’s not about the things you should avoid.

It’s about indulging in the good things — the fresh air, the invigorating games of golf and the nutritious chocolate balls.

Westin is focused around six pillars of wellbeing, including working and sleeping well.

And the hotel is better described by “wellbeing” instead of “healthy.” After a lunch of smoked salmon overlooking a lagoon, other words come to mind – like indulgent.

The Heavenly Spa

Finish your stay with a treatment at the 3,000-square-meter Heavenly Spa, which boasts 10 therapy rooms in a sleek, minimalist setting.

As you lay on the massage table, a therapist rubs away the knots and there’s a bowl of fresh, white flowers underneath. The room is airy with light coming in from a window that overlooks a small garden. Your thoughts wander and it feels miles away from the city.

Afterwards, the spa and lounge areas showcase the open-air feel and bright lights that fill the spa. Even in the jacuzzi there are tall windows and a door into a small garden filled with palm trees and sunshine.

It’s a breezy space to relax after your treatment.
