Your Destinations

With its year-round sunshine, and stunning scenery above and below the water, the Red Sea Riviera has long been a holiday favourite for sunbathing and a world-class diving destination. The former fishing village of Hurghada has transformed itself into a spectacular retreat complete with 20 kilometres of golden sand and luxurious beachside hotels. Head downtown to Old Hurghada and capture traditional Egyptian life around the mosques and lively bazaars.

Your stay places you on the western coast of the Red Sea between Safaga and Hurghada in Makadi Bay, a self-contained “village” ideally suited to those seeking a more tranquil destination away from the bustle of everyday life.
