In addition to the three new Egypt hotels, the hotel group has added four new cruisers and a sail boat to its Egypt holiday choices on the River Nile, including the famous ‘Misr’, which was the private yacht of Egypt’s former King Farouk.

Travellers going on holidays to Sharm el Sheikh will be able to enjoy upscale facilities and accommodation at the new Mövenpick Resort Sharm El Sheikh - Naama Bay from 8th April, 2012. The resort has 298 rooms and suites and four villas with a private swimming pool; all boasting views overlooking the resort’s five private sandy beaches.
