Situated on the shores of the Red Sea, cradled by the Gulf of Aqaba and sheltered by the mountains of Sinai, the hotel is surrounded by desert, sea and natural beauty. There is little around the hotels and bars and restaurants are within the hotel complex. New restaurant facilites and cafes are in the process of being opened a short ride by shuttle bus from the hotel. In addition to this, a superb PGA Championship golf course has recently opened and offers a challenging golf round with stunning views across the Red Sea.
Watersports are located nearby and offer a vast array of opportunites. The watersports and diving centre can be reached by courtesy shuttle bus which departs this hotel every hours during daylight and takes about 8-9 minutes to reach.
The hotel is low rise and is fairly disabled friendly - there is a lift and rooms can be located close to the main building upon request. However, rooms are not fully equipped for people in wheelchairs and it is much easier if one has an able-bodied helper. The swimming pool has a large gentle shallow slope at one end which is suitable for people with walking difficulties to enter the pool without the use of stairs.
Hotel is locally classified 5*. The tour operator feedback from clients grades it at 4*+ with very positive feedback.
