Egypt is not all about dead pharaohs' tombs and the legendary Sphinx; there are other places worth a visit; places like Hurghada, along the Red Sea coastline. Take the time to discover this other face of Egypt and you will be rewarded with kilometres of soft, golden sands more sunshine than you need for a perfect tan.
Sitting strategically on the Makadi Bay is the amazing Fort Arabesque. Amazing for the way in which it marries contemporary decor and traditional Arab architecture. Surrounding the majestic building are colourful, well-manicured gardens. You will find yourself whiling hours away beside the free-form pool which is surrounded by palm trees and loungers. Or in the Vareena Spa getting a royal pampering. If you're up for it, you can join in diving and snorkelling trips arranged by the hotel.
