Located on the southern tip of the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula, the Grand Hotel Sharm el Sheikh represents a 5 star hotel destination. Set on a plateau overlooking the Red Sea, the Grand Hotel forms part of the Hadaba area of the city of Sharm el Sheikh, a contemporary resort combining ancient Bedouin culture with world class tourism. With its own private seafront and landscaped gardens that enjoy a year-round temperate climate, the Grand Hotel offers unbeatable views and a luxury accommodation experience.
The hotel features 627 rooms over two floors, with fully-equipped and spacious standard rooms offering views over the sea, pools and gardens. Junior suites are also available with equally strong views and facilities. These suites are catered with families in mind, with space for two adults and two children. Options are also available for booking inter-connected rooms.
Key facilities across the hotel include eight outdoor pools, with one specifically maintained for children, as well as a private beach. The hotel provides guests with beach towels and bags, and also offers poolside activities that include volleyball, aerobics and water gymnastics. In addition, shuttle buses are available to the nearby sandy beach of Naama Bay, home to some of the Sinai Peninsula’s best diving, snorkelling and windsurfing.
The Grand Hotel is similarly distinguished by its wide choice of eating and drinking options, from two buffet areas to six a la carte restaurants serving international cuisine. Four snack bars and five fully-serviced bars are also operated within the grounds of the hotel. Particularly recommended is the Reef Bar, with its spectacular views of the Red Sea, and the weekly ‘Night in Napoli,’ where Italian music and food are served in the hotel’s Beach Club.
Guests can also enjoy free wi-fi access in the lobby, an internet cafe, and on-site billiards and table tennis facilities. Entertainment programs are regularly changed during the week, from belly dancing lessons and live music, to quick courses in Arabic. Family options include a supervised children’s club, a mini disco, and a playground. A 24-hour reception service, and additional pharmacy and hotel doctor services, are also available for guests and their families.
Local attractions include the Old Market area of Hadaba, which offers visitors access to traditional Bedouin culture and cuisine. Sharm el Sheikh itself features world class shopping, golf courses, and transport links to the rest of the Peninsula and Egypt.
Visitors can also make day-trips to the Ras Mohammed and Nabq National Parks, which preserve the Peninsula’s endangered plant, animal and marine life, as well as providing access to some of the world’s most beautiful coral reefs. Visitors should also take the time to visit the ancient Biblical site of Mt. Sinai and the enclosed St. Catherine’s Monastery.
Offering luxury facilities in one of the world’s most beautiful areas, the Grand Hotel Sharm el Sheikh and other such as the Hilton are an ideal choice for visitors seeking choice, comfort and culture.
