Where Hospitality Meets Responsibility

El Gouna is a community that prioritises concern for the environment. In fact, El Gouna was named the first area in Africa to receive a UN-sponsored Green Town Award for its efforts toward creating a greener, more sustainable future for everyone.

In pursuit of this goal, El Gouna partnered with the Egyptian Ministries of Tourism and Economic Cooperation and Development to act as the first destination in the country to represent the Green Star Hotel Initiative. This effort serves as the Middle East’s first tourism-based ecological certification program. 

The Chedi El Gouna believes deeply in acting in concert with our city, and acting responsibly when it comes to our environment. That’s why we’re committed to minimising our ecological footprint within a region that was conceived as a contained, self-sustaining ecosystem. In doing so, it’s our hope that we can serve as an excellent example for hotels around the country, as well as around the world.

Take a look at our sustainability practices and discover everything we’re doing to take care of you, and our planet.
