This elegant hotel was built to resemble an Arabian village, with Moorish architecture and clusters of white buildings cascading down the hillside towards the beach. The garden is a true oasis in the desert, filled with palm trees and dotted with four swimming pools – including one that’s a whopping 1,000 metres square – a tennis centre, water features and shady cabanas for lounging the day away.
Bed and Bath
The spacious rooms and suites come with stunning sea or courtyard garden views, and many have a private terrace. With opulent Moorish touches in the form of sweeping archways and intricately carved grilles, all rooms come with a comfortable sitting area, a separate dressing area, TVs and CD-DVD players hidden in an attractive armoire and Nespresso machines. The large marble bathrooms have deep tubs, walk-in showers, twin sinks, lots of fluffy white towels and L’Occitane lotions and potions.
There are a host of dining options, starting with a buffet breakfast at Arabesque. You can lunch poolside at the Gezira Pool Bar and Waha Pool Bar, while the Citadel Lounge serves light meals throughout the day. In the evening, Arabesque serves authentic Middle Eastern cuisine overlooking the Red Sea, and you’ll find delicious Italian specialities at Il Frantoio. Then relax the in art-filled Observatory Lounge, or the al fresco Nafoura lounge with a cocktail or a even smoke fruit-flavoured tobacco through a shisha pipe, while a belly dancer wiggles her hips. For the ultimate pampering session, indulge in the Egyptian Masterpiece treatment at the large spa.
In the Area
Divers and snorkellers shouldn’t miss Tiran Island or Ras Mohamed National Park, home to thousands of fish species and vibrant coral. Waterskiing, kite surfing and windsurfing are also on offer. Back on dry land, you can go quad biking in the desert or opt for a more sedate camel trek. The adventurous can climb Mount Sinai – known as Moses Mount – by moonlight, and reach the top to watch the sun rise over the incredible landscape, before visiting historic St Catherine’s Monastery. Closer to home, shop for souvenirs at SOHO Square, with its bars, cafes and outdoor stage shows.
How to Get There
Although I am frequent traveler I rarely write reviews, and I hesitated to write this review so much as you can see ..I am a repeated customer of Four Season sham, I usually travel with my wife ,and I would say all stays where perfect ...The view , staff, food and rooms.This Christmas I decided to fly my son and daughter from Toronto - Canada to spend our vacation in our favorite hotel.We booked room 312 and 315 from 25th for 3 nights. Our first night was in the market restaurant its located at the beach ,it was a windy night the hotel defiantly not prepared , they didn't have enough heaters ... the cold wind went into our bones .... we asked for blankets the staff provided us with beach towels? we asked the staff to give us one of the heaters when ever any table leaves...Three times they passed the heaters to other tables ...I asked them why they didn't give it to us although we asked first ... one of the waitress told me tell us which table had it before ... I didn't want to argue we paid and left ...I waited for the morning so I can visit a pharmacy because the pain in our bones was unbearable ... bought some pain killers and compliant repeatedly for management but it seems no body cared from top management ...We asked for coffee every day in our room and it was not great at all...Cleaning the rooms was late and when i asked once why its not clean by 4pm the gentleman answered me we have till 5 to clean it ? In general this is not the standard that we are used to at all ...usually its perfect service as you expect from any Four Season Hotel...What is not forgettable to me is the way top management acted, I wondered is it a reporting issue or management attitude ...very disappointing ... a reminder for them Four Season is based on the promise "we seek to deal with others as we would have them deal with us"..I admit that this experience is the only bad one out of so many ...My wife and I will still go back to this hotel because we still believe its the best hotel in sharm
We had amazing 1 night Valentine's day stay with a great romantic atmosphere and evening belly dance show. The staff is helpful, extremely friendly and kind. The resort itself offers a scenic landscape of palm trees, lashing gardens, whispering fountains and springs, all surrounded by Moorish architecture of rooms and suites. The best memories ever!

This hotel is beyond perfect !! The dive shop is the best I've experienced in all of my travels. Staff is motivated to make you feel home and want to come back soon. We have only had good experience with service and food at the restaurants.
