The Westin Cairo Golf Resort & Spa Katameya Dunes will have 128 rooms and will include a 27-hole golf course designed by a team led by pro Nick Faldo.

The property will be part of the Katameya Dunes mixed-use project in New Cairo City.

Starwood has 12 hotels in Egypt and will reopen the Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino next year after a renovation.
