About 30 minutes (45km) north of Marsa Alam airport and about 26km south of El Quseir.
A special mention should be made of the well managed and impressively stocked perfume bazar just off the reception. There was a far wider choice of perfume bottles and perfumes than I’ve seen in the hundred or so shops I’ve visited in Egypt. And the salesman really knows his perfumes. Not too expensive either. Opening times can vary but normally from around 11.30am to around 11.30pm. Ring the manager Sameh on 01110170917 from inside Egypt or on 00 20 1110170917 from outside Egypt.
