Rooms: 220 Lahmy Bay

Room facilities: The usual – in other words each has a balcony or terrace “facing the sea” ( presumably meaning a sea view), a sitting area and a bathroom with a bath tub and separate toilet cubicle.   As you’d expect there’s also air conditioning, satellite television, a mini-bar, a safe and a hair dryer.  However each room  is at least a little different as each has a set of original paintings portraying traditional themes from the Sahara.

Location: currently the southernmost hotel of any size on Egypt’s Red Sea coast near the small town of Berenice and 123km south of Marsa Alam. It’s a 2.5 hour drive (185km) south of Marsa Alam airport.lahmy bay

Hotel Facilities: suprisingly for a hotel of its’ size, there are three restaurants.  As usual there’s a separate children’s pool and play area and a games room (for all ages) as well as billiards on offer, but less usual for this area there’s also a library with a collection of books in different languages for anyone seeking a quiet refuge.  A windsurfing centre is located just to the south of the resort where there is a wide range of equipment available and instruction offered for beginners.   Divers will be happy too as several first class dive sites and popular shipwrecks lie a short boat journey away off shore.  There is also a diving centre to give advice, offer trips and also internationally recognised courses (PADI and CMAS).
