This luxury resort is located directly on its own private beach and saltwater lagoon. The beach is wide and sandy but there are some patches of coral so beach shoes are recommended. There is a jetty that leads over the shallow coral foreshore to deeper water and the stunning house reef which is perfect for snorkelling. Port Ghalib marina is right on the doorstep, with its long tree-lined corniche and more than 100 shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment. Marsa Alam airport is a 10 minute drive.
The hotel’s unique Arabian architecture, attention to detail and spacious garden setting mean it really is like a palace. Inside you will find the elegant foyer and reception desk, the main restaurant, “The Olive”, with its garden terrace, the “Look Out” bar, and the poolside “Pool Deck” bar serving snacks and Oriental specialities. The elegant main pool is heated in winter, and there is a separate children’s pool, plus a large saltwater swimming lagoon. Sun lounger, parasols and towels are proved free of charge at the pool and beach. The hotel shares grounds with the neighbouring Siva Port Ghalib and Port Ghalib Resort hotels, and guests have full access to their shared facilities.
