Backed by the Sinai Mountains and faced with panoramas of the Red Sea, Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh is reminiscent of an Arabian palace.
Designed to resemble an Arabian village, the resort features low rise limestone buildings spread out over the hillside down to the 100 metre private beach. All rooms feature either a private balcony or terrace - most of which have magnificent sea views.
An excellent dive centre provides diving instruction and daily visits to multiple dive sites, those of the Straits of Tiran being only 15 minutes away, 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.
Dining at the resort is a real treat with five restaurants to choose from, including Moroccan and Lebanese delicacies, Italian fare and Asian inspired cuisine. For a more intimate setting, the In-Room Dining team is on hand to arrange dining in the perfect setting, whether it be a candlelit beachfront dinner or exotic terrace picnic.
Additional facilities include four pools, a fitness centre, three tennis courts, an Arabian style Daniela Steiner Spa, sauna and steam room. The resort's kids' club will keep the little ones entertained whilst the games room will keep older ones preoccupied, whether it be playing table football or PS3. The hotel can also arrange a plethora of fantastic excursions, from a day trips to Moses's Mountain and Saint Catherine's Monastery to taking a jetty to Tiran Island.
Why we love it
You can snorkel straight from the hotel's jetty, and the snorkelling really is fantastic. Look out for George, an enormous Napoleon fish who makes the occasional appearance.
