In celebration of the return of UK flights to Sharm El Sheikh, Four Seasons invites guests to head on a journey of desert adventures and discover an untouched underwater world with a specially curated itinerary.
Four Seasons Resort Sharm el Sheikh has announced a three-day itinerary, bringing guests much more than winter sun this season. There has never been a better time to visit Egypt, and from quad biking through mountainous terrain to a moonlit fire-dancing display on the beach, the world-class Resort on Egypt’s Red Sea offers the chance to experience this magical country unlike ever before.
DAY ONE of the three-day adventure will begin with breakfast overlooking breath-taking views of the Red Sea, either in Arabesque restaurant or from the privacy of a guestroom terrace. From here guests will embark on a journey over miles of sparkling desert and untouched beaches, on one of three modes of transport: camelback, horseback or quadbike. Should one choose to traverse the magnificent Sinai Mountains, locals are found eager to greet guests and offer an impromptu tour of some of the Bible’s most revered settings, such as Mount Moses in Saint Catherine. The day will end with a welcome break from the desert heat on return to Four Seasons Resort Sharm el Sheikh, where guests can relax in one of four swimming pools.
DAY TWO will bring a shift in landscape, as guests are invited to hop on the 50-metre jetty right off the Resort’s beach, and head out for a day of unparalleled diving and snorkelling experiences in the rainbow-hued playground for marine life that is the coral reef of the Red Sea. Unmatched by any other resort in Sharm el Sheikh, Four Seasons has its own diving centre with expert instructors who will take guests on a guided dive of the Red Sea’s best sites, where they can expect to see turtles, lionfish, rays, napoleon fish and dolphin, to name just a few. For those eager to travel further, the uninhabited island of Tiran or the shipwreck sites of Thislegorm and Dunraven lie in wait. After a day of marine exploration, guests can then settle in for an evening of indulgence on return to the Resort for their Bedouin Dinner: a delicious rustic meal under an endless starry sky, where shadows and firelight dance against the backdrop of crashing waves, accompanied by an Arabic Takht playing traditional violin music. The authentic Egyptian banquet experience begins with a welcome drink, before guests are invited to kick off their shoes and find a comfortable table inside a tent swathed in rich textiles. This truly is a feast for the senses, with an exciting selection of fragrant dishes grilled on the beach, belly dancers spiralling through the sand and moonlit camel rides along the beach.
DAY THREE brings a morning stroll amongst 1,800 palm trees that dominate the lush green gardens of Four Seasons Resort Sharm el Sheikh. Guests can take in the Resort’s Moorish-inspired architecture designed by Brayton & Hughes Studios, before retreating to the Spa for a lavish bath of honey and milk, echoing the ancient Egyptian world of beauty and Bedouin wellness rituals. A relaxing massage imbues head-to-toe rejuvenation, or the Arabian Coffee Ritual will detoxify the skin and increase blood circulation. For the final night, guests can enjoy fresh seafood from the Reef Grill with spectacular views of the reef, the Red Sea and Tiran Island. Menu highlights include Pan Seared Octopus, Jumbo Prawns, Australian Lamb Chops and Sautéed Black Mussels.
Poised to welcome British guests with open arms, the Hotel’s Chief Concierge Ahmed Nazmy is excited to showcase all that this richly cultured Resort has to offer, and comments: ”Sharm el Sheikh is a treasure trove of enchanted experiences just waiting to be seized. We are so thrilled to able to invite travellers from the UK to experience our beautiful town the Four Seasons way, with a curated itinerary that will transport them into a world of unique discoveries.”
