This hotel has drawn a winning straw location-wise. Laid out in vast grounds, it’s just footsteps from the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea. Plus a 30 minute taxi ride gets you to Naama Bay.
On the looks front, it’s gone for a modern interpretation of old-world Arabia. Think low-rise buildings punctuated with watchtower-style turrets. It’s grouped around an enormous paved terrace with four pools.
If you’re in need of some pampering, the hotel spa deserves some attention. Offering a range of me-time massages and beauty treatments, it’s complemented by a health centre. On the sportier side of things, you’ll also find a beach volleyball court, tennis and a gym.
Looks-wise the hotel is fronted by fountains and stately arcades reminiscent of classical Rome. Step through and you’re greeted by the lobby. All archways, chandeliers and colonnades, it’s glamorous without being glitzy.
The bedrooms, meanwhile, have a classic feel. The standard ones are dressed in warm shades like muted plums and magnolias. They’ve also been given nice little refinements like LCD TVs, minibars and furnished balconies or terraces.
