The place to stay in Sharm El Sheikh is the Four Seasons, an island of peace and security.
Neill is here to help give you the inside track.
The Sharm El Sheikh Four Seasons consists of a cluster of whitewashed villas set on a hillside overlooking the Red Sea. There are 136 guestrooms and 64 suites, all of which have a private balcony or terrace, and the hotel is extremely family-friendly, with good facilities for children. There is also a 100-metre stretch of private, white sand beach.
A Daniela Steiner Spa offers a comprehensive range of all-natural treatments and massages, as well as a sauna, steam room, and gym. Several restaurants offer a choice of Middle Eastern and Italian cuisine.
An excellent dive centre provides diving instruction and daily visits to multiple dive sites, those of the Straights of Tiran being but 15 minutes distant, whilst the more distant sites of the Ras Mohamed Marine National Park make a wonderful day trip. In all there are at least 35 sites within easy range so you could easily spend a few weeks here without diving the same spot twice.
A variety of other water sports are also available at the Four Seasons, while on land activities include volleyball and tennis on four floodlit courts. There is also a golf course nearby, and the hotel can organise a variety of excursions around the Sinai Peninsula, from camel rides in the desert to day-trips to St Catherine's Monastery.
Why we love it
The snorkelling at the Sharm El Sheikh Four Seasons is superb, and if you're lucky you might see George, an enormous Napoleon fish who makes the occasional appearance.
