Located on the Red Sea between rocky hillsides and the Arabian Desert is Hurghada. A small fishermen's village ten years ago, Hurghada has grown into a favorite spot for scuba divers and other water sports enthusiasts. It is a place for relaxation under almost permanent sunshine, as it only rains in Hurghada two or three days a year. Hurghada is also an ideal stopover on the way to or back from Luxor. The road from Hurghada to Cairo takes the visitor by St. Paul and St. Anthony, two of the world's oldest and most interesting Coptic monasteries--definitely worth visiting.
It features 260 spacious and fully air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, plus nine elegant villas. The main building of the resort includes the lobby, reception, bell desk, travel desk, meeting facilities, three restaurants, two bars, a billiard room adjacent to the bar, a gym with whirlpool, sauna and massage facilities, and a variety of shops. Two wings, north and south of the main building, feature all guest rooms on three levels, gradually coning down to two and then one level, as they get closer to the beach. Each room has a terrace and nearly all enjoy a view of the Red Sea. A beautifully landscaped garden separates the two guest room wings, and features the resort's swimming pool in the center and a seafood restaurant at the end closest to the beach.
