This highly impressive five star resort is located some 48km to the south of Marsa Alam town near to the entrance  of the Wadi El Gemal national park and one of only a few hotels in this area.
The hotel was only finished in 2008 so there are still one or two facilities under development but the staff are friendly, the food excellent and the local reef wonderful for snorkellers.
The majority of customers so far have been Italian but, judging by the language of reviewers, there have also been a significant number of French ( around 20 %),  German (around 20%)  and English speaking guests (around 5 to 10 per cent.)
Rooms: 352.
Room description & faciliities: Even the basic rooms are luxuriously spacious with an area of 60 square metres.  They are spread out across a large area – 22 blocks in all – with interconnecting rooms and rooms with handicapped facilities available on the ground floor.

They feature all the usual facilities for five star hotels –  Satellite LCD TV,  safe, hair dryer and wireless internet access.  Unfortunately we are not sure whether the wireless internet is at an extra charge (as is usual in most hotels) or not but will try to update readers shortly.
Location: On Marsa Alam’s Red Sea coast, 48km south of Marsa Alam town and about 110km south of Marsa Alam airport and close to the entrance of the Wadi Gamal National Park.
Facilities: 700 metre private beach with 300 umbrellas and 600 sun loungers, 4 swimming pools including a heated pool and children’s pool, excellent spa and health club, three restaurants, five bars, a bureau de change, laundry service, large shopping area with 15 bazaars ranging from souvenirs to a general store,  hairdresser, car rental and limousine service.
Environment: The hotel is the only one we know of which has organized two “clean up” days a week where guest volunteers and staff work together to clean up a local beach.  Well done to the management in having such a green outlook.

GUEST REVIEWS:

On TripAdvisor the hotel’s ranking has risen rapidly in the last two years from an already above average 26th out of 61 hotels as of June 2010 to 12th of 68 hotels as of June 2013, although it has slipped slightly from its’ high rank of 8th of 71 hotels in November 2012. However satisfaction levels remain very high. Of all reviewers,  83 per cent  (unchanged since November) rated it as either “excellent” or “very good” and just 8 per cent (also unchanged since November) as “poor” or “terrible”.  85 per cent said they would recommend the resort.
