The hotel, which was initially built in this location in order to enable the army officers to receive their families for a visit, was also the site where, after the 1973 war, Egypt and Israel peace negotiations took place between former Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat & the former Israeli Prime Minister.

After the liberation of the Sinai Peninsula in 1982, Egypt took over the management and operations of the hotel from Israeli authorities. Then in 1990, Helnan international hotels took over the management of the hotel. It was the first hotel the chain decided to invest in the South Sinai area.
