Day 48 Sea Day sailing towards Jordan
Sea days are usually very relaxing. Not sure what is happening with sea days now-a-days. We were jammed pack all day.
After breakfast we decided to try out the paddle tennis court. It is not ping-pong, but a court that is about half the size of a tennis court. Two to four people ...

We arrived at our first destination, the Pyramids first at around 11.30 am. The coach driver took us to the top, along the Gaza Plateau, and although the main pictures see just three big Pyramids, there were actually 11 there the smaller ones built for the Pharaoh’s wives and children. These ...

There was a purpise built facility another hour down the road but some of us could not wait and many place were not keen to allow non Egyptians in there business. He finally found one that would allow the women but not the men. The locals had their entertainment of the day when they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kahramana Beach Resort Marsa Alam
Mein Mann und ich verbrachten eine Woche in dieser wunderschönen Anlage. Wir wussten, was uns erwartete, weil Freunde von uns schon hiergewesen waren. Man kann hier einen extrem ruhigen und entspannten Urlaub verbringen. Perfekt, wenn man - wie wir - sonst eine sehr hektisches Leben führt. Abends ist nicht viel lost und viele Gäste beschwerten sich, weil ihnen langweilig war - ich denke, dass das an den Erwartungen liegt - wenn man es nicht gewusst hatten, dann hätte man es wohl langweilig finden können - ich weiss nicht, wo ich lieber gewesen wäre.
We went to the Kahramana as a last minute deal having been to Taba and Sharm previously. A quite hotel with snorkelling are our priorities, the hotel proved to be an excellent choice for us with the bonus of a short transfer from the airport (compared to Taba and Sharm).
My husband and I went for a weeks holiday at this beautiful resort. We knew what to expect as friends have been there.
Nous avons séjourné une semaine en famille dans ce bel hotel. Avons apprécié une architecture intégrée au site et de bon goût, des chambres très spacieuses (55M2), face à la mer et bien équipées pour un séjour plongée-plage.
We stayed at the Kahramana Beach Resort in the first week of March 2006 and found it to be excellent. The hotel caters for about 800 people but the week we were there there were only 150 resident. The hotel is spotless and all the staff were welcoming, polite and helpful. There are three restaurants all of a good quality with very reasonably priced food. The dive centre on site (Pioneer divers) were professional and helpful albeit there were only a maximum of seven people diving on any day. It was really good to have the option of a single dive in the morning or afternoon and then relax by the pool the rest of the day. If you don't dive but snorkel then go by the courtesy bus to the hotel's other beach at Abou Dabbab where you can see turtles and the dugong (Egyptian Manatee). The only downsides to the hotel were the number of steps involved in getting around the place. We are all able bodied but if we hadn't been then the number of steps would definitely been an issue. The other downside is there is nowhere to walk out to - if you have an issue with the place you would be stuck with it - the desert surrounds the hotel and Marsa Alam village is not a place for tourists.
My husband and I stayed for a week at the Kahramana resort. I wish it had been longer. The location is fabulous for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Although my intention was to snorkel, unfortunately due to a throat virus (which started before my holiday),this was not possible. You can view the marine life from a pier viewpoint, and see some spectacular fish. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. The staff are extremely friendly and obliging. I would not recommend it for anybody who has to push a buggy/wheelchair etc as the accommodation and restaurants are almost certainly going to be difficult to access. There is not much to do in the evenings,although they did put on entertainment for about 45 mins each evening, apart from that, the only option is one of the bars, or the disco. The evening meal was buffet style in the main restaurant, and very varied.We enjoyed every meal, which we signed for on a tab, and paid for at the end of the holiday. We did not find it too expensive, about £13.00 each per night including a drink. The breakfast was fabulous with so many choices, catering for all different tastes. It took us a few days before we got used to doing "nothing" but the weather and location were definitely worth waiting for. We would certainly go back again, but maybe when the temperature was a little higher, as the wind makes it a bit chilly in January. My husband even managed an afternoon game of football with the locals and other guests each day. Enjoy!
Just came back from the Kaharmana over a week ago and had a fantastic holiday.
Be careful when you book the Kahramana resort as there are two hotels on this site, the Kahramana and the Amaraya Club. The Kahramana is beautiful, as other posts agree, but the Amaraya Club is like staying in a Travel Lodge.
We just returned from a week at the Kahramana, and I must say that the hotel is absolutely beautiful. They spared no expense in the external structure and the gardens. Even more amazing was the staff that meticulously attended to the grounds, the tennis courts, beach, pool etc.
Kahramana Beach Resort is the place to be if you want to dive or snorkel because it has it's own diving-center. Right in front of the hotel are gigantic coral reefs, so if you only have the intention to snorkel, you are also at the right spot.
