Sharm el-Sheikh is a popular Egyptian resort area that comes as a ready-made for a beach holiday with long beaches and clear waters. The location on the Red Sea is great for family holidays as you enjoy all-inclusive splendour, lively nightlife and a touch of authentic Egypt.
The ideal location for a holiday, the warm water and golden sands are great for helping you top up the tan and offer a number of activities to enjoy. One of our favourite hotels in the region is the impressive Royal Albatros Moderna, which is an exclusive, modern resort ready to charm the whole family.

Located in the Nabq Bay area of Sharm el-Sheikh, you get to enjoy complete luxury in what is one of the best hotels in the region. Sun-kissed year-round, it is a resort that works just as well for winter sun as a summer break and boasts a beautiful setting.
The air-conditioned rooms have a balcony or terrace for relaxation and there is a mix of family room options. In the grounds you can choose from sinking your toes into the gorgeous sand or splashing around in one of the four swimming pools. Also on the complex is an aqua park; perfect for the kids, it has eight slides for them to enjoy while the adults can pamper themselves in the onsite spa and wellness centre.
This is a spacious hotel that offers full board food and drink so you can have what you want from the varied selection each day.

In the area
Sharm el-Sheikh is a purpose-built tourist resort and that means that the needs of couples and families are all met. The hotels offer relaxation but there are also things to do outside. A popular scuba diving area, exploring the crystal-clear waters is a popular activity and can be booked from the Royal Albatros Moderna. Other things to do include:
Climb the 4,000 steps of Mount Sinai to the spot where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments. St Catherine’s monastery at the foot is worth a look but the panoramic views from the summit are the ultimate reward.
Enjoy a family evening by taking a 4×4 desert safari across the shifting desert sands whilst enjoying the sunset. Many of these trips come complete with a Bedouin adventure of dinner, shisha and camel rides after.
Don’t miss the chance of an excursion to Luxor. Built on the site of Thebes, it is known as the largest open-air museum in the world as you take a look at some of the great buildings before exploring the spectacular Valley of the Kings.
Head down to the Old Market to experience a traditional bazaar and be amazed by the wonderful colours of everything from jewellery to leather goods that you can haggle to buy.
Get a full water park experience with a trip to Aqua Blue. Themed around ancient Egypt, you can enjoy adrenalin-filled rides and slides before taking it easy down the lazy river.
