Only a few steps from the famous concrete walkway and the minaret. Where all the coastal city visitors walk along and gaze at the water trying to figure out if they can spot the Mediterranean and the Nile intersection.


The architect-designed Steigenberger El Lessan in a manner that reflects and mirrors the surrounding context. The designer chose to blend in and use the surrounding features as a reference, while still creating a special character.

One of the prominent features in Ras el Bar architecture is the balconies. Where people love to sit and enjoy the sea breeze. The hotel architect used this feature strongly in the waterfront façade. Yet the designer did not intimidate only the balconies from the context. Existing beach houses feature sloping red brick roof. Steigenberger two towers and balconies roof imitated the sloping red brick design. Moreover, the surrounding buildings light colors palette inspired the Hotel elevation finishes.

The beach vibe inspired the rooms interior; accordingly, the designer chose a coastal color palette. Featuring blue, warm grey, burlywood and tan colors.
