Back to the charm of Sharm El Sheikh

Now that Israel scaled back the travel advisory to the Sinai, over 20,000 Israelis are expected to vacation there during the high holidays, so let’s take a peek at a more stylish way to explore the beauties of the Sinai Peninsula.

Israel has recently scaled back the travel advisory to the Sinai, and the exodus back into Egypt is in full swing. Over 20,000 Israelis are expected to vacation in the Sinai Peninsula in September alone, with several Israeli airlines just waiting to launch direct flights to Sharm El Sheikh.

And not just Israelis. Russia has also recently resumed flights to Sharm el-Sheikh after almost six years, making the desert oasis the ideal destination for a short, romantic getaway.

While many of those 20,000 vacationers will opt for a cheaper stay at a beach hut, some would definitely look for a more upscale stay, and they are in for a treat at the Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh, an elegant resort on the shores of the Red Sea.

Out of 109 rooms, almost all are suites with balconies overlooking the beach. Decorated in the style of a traditional Arab village, with domes, arches, and stylized fountains, the hotel covers a vast area with lush gardens, making it an oasis filled with bougainvillea, hibiscus, 1800 palm trees, and 60 fountains. Due to its size, hotel guests are transported from the main building to the beach by a special train.

As the resort sits next to the world-famous diving sites, it also boasts a PADI diving club and a fully equipped sports club, tennis courts, and a variety of other sports facilities. And if you’re not spending time diving or engaging in other activities, such as Sunset Safari or an Outdoor Bedouin Dinner, you can lounge at one of four swimming pools.

On the culinary side, the resort offers nine restaurants and bars, including an authentic grill restaurant, an Italian one under the open sky in summer, or by the fireplace on wintry days, a seasonal light Asian cuisine, and a choice of three lounges.

If you’re looking for some relaxation for body and soul, the Spa at Four Seasons offers traditional treatments alongside unique, local treatments like the Egyptian Coffee Ceremony, with a body wrap made of freshly ground coffee beans in combination with other healing ingredients to purify the skin and increase blood circulation.

And if you’re traveling with kids, there’s a kids club for ages 4 to 12, with experienced instructors and daily indoor and outdoor activities, from arts and crafts to treasure hunts. The resort was built with a family vacation in mind, and the Aladdin Pool was explicitly designed for children. Babysitting services can also be enjoyed at the hotel so that parents can enjoy some quality time in leisure.
