The Corinthia Hotel

The hotel was opened on 17 August 2008. It has 18 guest floors, 173 rooms and 57 suites, all offering panoramic views of Khartoum and the Nile. The hotel has six restaurants and cafés and leisure facilities including spa, gym, tennis and squash courts.

It was built and financed by the Libyan government at a cost of over 80 million euros. The building has an oval curved facade; like the Burj Al Arab, it was designed to resemble a ship's sail. It is known as "Gaddafi's Egg" because it is funded by Libya.[1]
