Sharm el Sheikh Hotels

Known as the City of Peace, Sharm El Sheikh is a cosmopolitan beach destination which remains eternally sunny, balmy and relaxed, no matter what political storms other parts of Egypt are weathering. This coastal resort on the Red Sea offers one of the world’s most interesting diving and snorkelling spots, with dazzling coral life and perfectly temperate waters. The various bays all along the coast are set up to offer the ultimate beach break, with spectacular resorts and a vibrant nightlife.

Things to see

The brilliant, turquoise sea and golden sand of Sharm El Sheikh is instantly captivating, and with several bays and beaches spanning the Red Sea coast, you’ll have plenty of choice for soaking up the sun and bathing in the sea. Na’ama Bay is Sharm El Sheikh’s flagship resort area, and it is full of shopping malls, chic bars and international restaurants. As well as the usual mix of chain eateries, here you can sample Egypt’s best seafood. Close by, and at the centre of the strip, you’ll find Soho Square, a shopping and entertainment complex, which the whole family can enjoy. Where else can you ice-skate in the desert? For true marine adventure, head to Nabq Bay, the least developed district of Sharm El Sheikh. The Nabq Protected Area contains some of the best coral reef in the Red Sea, so take a dive and see this dazzling underwater world.

Hotels in Sharm el Sheikh

Amongst the plethora of glitzy resorts which hug the coastline, you can find some fantastic hotels in Sharm El Sheikh. Most are luxury hotels, offering all-inclusive packages. In these vast palaces, you’ll have outdoor pool areas with sun loungers and bars, a choice of restaurants and even onsite nightclubs. With private beaches at some hotels as well, you may find it hard to even leave the resort. Rooms are generally modern and spacious with Egyptian wicker furnishings. Mini-bars and satellite TVs are usually provided. If you’d prefer to go self-catered, there are numerous resorts offering apartment style accommodation too.

Where to stay

Central Na’ama Bay has a host of all-inclusive resorts as well as a few smaller, boutique hotels and is at the heart of Sharm El Sheikh’s shopping and entertainment district, so if you do decide to venture out from the comfort of your hotel, there’s plenty to keep you amused. If you’d prefer to explore the natural delights of the Red Sea, Nabq Bay is the best location. You’ll still have a great choice of luxury hotels with sea views, and you’ll have immediate access to the coral dive sites. It’s also a more relaxed and tranquil place to stay.

How to get to Sharm el Sheikh

Sharm El Sheikh has its own airport, located just 15 minutes’ drive from Na’ama Bay. Many of the large hotels and several private companies provide airport transfer services upon request, so you’ll have a stress-free journey direct to your resort. This, or an official airport limo, is the best option for reaching the beaches and resorts, as the taxis outside the terminal are usually unmetered and may charge extortionate fares. To get around the city, you can either take a taxi – prices are much more reasonable once you’re away from the airport – or hop on one of the public micro-buses.
