Built to accommodate kings and heads of states in 1964, this hotel continues to host important guests from around the world. The hotel, most recently refurbished in 2002, is set on the Mediterranean Sea and is surrounded by 350 acres of gardens and beaches. It faces the Montaza Royal Palace, once home to the royal family. There is plenty to do at the hotel, including sunbathing on the private beach, water sports, relaxing dips in the heated swimming pool, and walking through the beautiful gardens. On-site dining options include the Alexandrina Restaurant, Asia House, Terrazza Italian Restaurant, and the seasonal Sunset Restaurant, set in the Royal Gardens. Dance the night away at the Dolphin Discotheque, overlooking the sea, or enjoy a quiet night with cocktails and live music at Neptune Bar. A stay at the Helnan Palestine Hotel is a truly royal experience.
