... has tried to pull me under water or I’ve been invited to dive below the surface "for fun." Well, the fun in these moments was one sided. In recent years I’ve been over coming my fears to prove to myself that long standing negative mental notions can be dispelled. I found that going skydiving was a quick way to face my fear of falling. Over New Year’s, after years of deliberation, I decided to become scuba certified and I have now completed several dives in the Red ...
Sharm el Sheikh is the travel destination for the international set. It is what Bali is to Australians. No Aussies but lots of Russians, Germans, English and every other nationality within a 5 hour flight radius.
We spent the day before battling Cairo traffic to the airport and then flying here. (1 hour flight). Shorter than the ride to the airport in Cairo.

The port authority had recently rescheduled our berth from docking to anchoring in Na'ama bay with an arrival schedule of 6 AM, with the last tender due back at 12:30 PM, therefore there would not be a whole lot of time to do much in ...
We had been told once that you must go to the Red Sea and to Sharm El Sheikh and he was right! Flying into Sharm el Sheikh was like looking at an advertisement for paradise. The greenish-blue water and coral reefs was gorgeous. For snorkellers and divers especially its a must!
We got to our beautiful resort ...
... close to an AMC theater with the seating effect. We have not partaken in the Stars at Sea, Planitarium, where the seats recline and you look up at the stars. It is in the same room as the movie theater and lectures. David fell in the dark one day and hurt his knee. Seems the theatre could use ushers during the beginning of a program to seat late comers. The usual Lido restaurant is spearated in many ways so there isnt so much of a feeling ...

Historical Traveler Reviews All Seasons Badawia Sharm Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
Booked a last minute deal, after reading reviews and checking out the web site sounded like a nice place to spend a week just before Christmas, we wanted all inclusive, which we have booked before in Sharm. We arrived around 6pm Egyptian time after a reasonable flight on Thomson, although no leg room this is to be expected on these flights. We were greeted by the friendly reception staff and once in the hotel we were were pleasantly surprised from the outside it does not inspire. Informed dinner 7-10pm, so had time for a quick shower. Room was small but adequate, although beds were hard, covered in one very thin sheet with an old blanket which had seen better days and then a bed spread on top. Room supposed to have A/C but did not work properly, for either heat or cold. Fridge very efficent. There was plenty of hot water, absolute blessing. TV adequate but only 3 english channels and very repetative. Room got very dusty over the week, mirrors and surfaces covered all the time.
We spent a week at the Badawai which we found on the "on the beach" website as an all inclusive deal to sharm.
If you are looking for a holiday in Sharm, then you should try to stay here.
After reading some reviews about this hotel we were a bit worried about what the hotel was going to be like, i can certainly say we were pleasently surprised when we arrived. We booked very last minute and just wanted a cheap weeks holiday all inclusive to relax. The hotel staff are very friendly and are very helpful. The hotel is extremley clean and i didn't see one bug while we were there!
What a Surprise we got!!! Badawia Was Great!!!
Having not seem much reviews on this resort we were a bit dubious about it - but what a surprise!!
The resort was very clean and tidy. The pool area was great as was the pool bar!!
Nothing was a problem for any of the staff who were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and tidy and all close to the pool area. As only 100 people maximum can stay there it was never 'overcrowded'.
The food was good and we never got any dodgy stomach aches. The room service was great also.
All in all this resort was first class.
One slight disadvantage was the resort was slightly out of the way - but you can go anywhere by taxi .
We went here in August on our Honeymoon, we booked because it was cheap and affordable and for All Inclusive you can't go wrong.
We booked the Badawia as part of a last minute deal with teletext on a fully inclusive deal.
We recently booked a holiday to creative badawia. We only stopped two nights and got moved to another hotel because it was so bad.
We where looking forward to our first holiday in Egypt but couldn't find a review on the Creative Badawia Hotel anywhere.
just got back from egypt stayed at the hauza beach resort, but last july me and my husband stayed at the badwia lovely hotel staff very nice nothing to much trouble for them , the pool is lovely but there is no on site beach, if you have children they might get a little bored as ther isnt anything for them to do,we went on loads of trips including quad biking that was great fun.
