Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh
Travel Blogs from Sharm El-Sheikh
After being up for alot of the night with Momo and playing with him upstairs around 11 after he awakes from his nap Karina finally comes upstairs to relieve me, reminding me to be ready as my taxi will be here at 2 to take me to the airport.
I thought I left tomorrow?
Nope. plane is leaving today. Thank …
One of the downsides of being first on
the plane.... can anyone guess? Yep, last off the plane...
Which also means, last in a
verrrrrrrrry long line. To get a VISA to get in the country, and then
the line to actually get in the country. Mostly asleep and a a bit
cranky I crawl off the plane and onto the shuttle bus. …
We wanted a couple of days of relaxing in the sun before going home so we scheduled a couple of days in Sharm El Sheikh at the Four Seasons and it was exactly what we needed. Sharm El Sheikh is located in the Sinai Penninsula by the Red Sea and is famous for its coral reefs and amazing diving. We hung out by the pool, by the beach, did some …
Today we visit the temples of the East Bank. The first stop are the Temples of Karnak. After the pyramids of Giza, Karnak is Egypt's most important Pharaonic site. The temple complex was built over a 1300 year period and the original area was spread over 220 acres. With its endless courts, halls, colossi, and huge scared lake, the scale and …
Hope you all are enjoying my ramblings.....in case your wondering Shauna does have editorial rights and she has exercised them. It is actually pretty hard to write about this stuff . Some much to tell but the fingers keep speaking up with the ole "Dude wrap it up I'm about to cramp on ya!" stuff. Hardest part also has been the net connections from …

Great place, expensive prices
Recently returned April 14th 2005 from 7 days at the Four Seasons.
Beautiful hotel, great suite with a private plunge pool ( we were upgraded when we arrived) superb service.
Beware the prices for alcolholic drinks. £48 +tax for a bottle of French Chardonnay (this was the cheapest non Egyptian wine available),£6 for a Gin and Tonic etc.
Restaurants were OK, good breakfast in the Arabesque restaurant, OK buffet nights although too expensive, Italian OK but not that authentic.
Naama Bay is horrible, touristy, full of restaurants and bars, all competing with each other so none stood out for great food or service. Worth a visit for 1 night.
Couldn't fault the Four seasons
We have just returned from staying here for one week and it was excellent. We had booked two adjacent rooms as we have three children and they upgraded us to a two bedded apartment as the rooms were not adjacent - free of charge.we stayed on a BB basis and had dinner one evening in the hotel - it was the only disappointment as it was an Indian buffet and we thought it was limited and a little bland. Everything else was excellent and the service was great - totally attentive but also unobtrusive. The facilities were also great and we felt that it was not overly expensive for extras considering the level of service.We would definitely go back if there were not so many other countries in our future travel plans!!
A Beautiful Oasis
We just returned from the Four Seasons yesterday - and what can we say?? It's the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Forget about those who say the Hyatt is fantastic. On the one night we went there, about 6 coachloads of tourists turned up. You stay at the Four Seasons to avoid the rabble and the package tour operators. Everything you read about the service, the staff, the food, the resort etc is true. It truly is better than any other resort including many in Hawaii. Forget about the main town, if you just want to relax and be pampered, this is the place for you. Every room is lovely, the staff are the best ever and prepare yourself for a fantastic experience!!
I travel a lot on business throughout the world, and this is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in.
Beautiful hotel - the management couldn't do enough for us and where incredibly polite and accomodating to our every wish. The only downside was an inconsiderate guest smoking a sheesha in the restaurant but the management dealt with this individual immediately.
The ultimate relaxing and tranquil oasis.
stayed in four seasons in beginning of dec, and cant fault the hotel at all. by far the best hotel in sharm.
The place, decoration & scenary r beautiful. I've taken a Villa with my family for a week in Dec. 2004.
This place is perfect. With a gorgeous design, incredible service, a terrific location, beautiful rooms and great food, this is one of the finest of 20+ Four Seasons Hotels that I have stayed in. I am an incredibly demanding traveler, and this place met or exceeded all of my high expectations.
Amazing, fantastic, wonderful
The four seasons sharm must be one of the best kept holiday secrets around. Beautiful hotel, stunning location, perfect hot sunny weather and brilliant staff who cannot do enough for you.
For a 6 star holiday at very reasonable rates - look no further. If you scuba dive, the school is friendly and expertly run and the diving is fantasitc for experinced and novice divers alike.
For a week unwinding and doing very little it does not get any better than this! Have just booked to go again- our fifth trip in three years!
Those who say Egypt is not safe are really missing out, security is tight but low key and just not an issue.
I have just come back (June ) from a week at the Four Seasons, Sharm El Sheik, and I think it may be the best hotel I have ever stayed in (and I have stayed in many). The hotel is immaculate, but the service is what makes it stand out. The staff cannot do enough to help you ,and are completely charming. All rooms are suites, the difference in price being the view. We upgraded to a panoramic sea view on one of the higher levels and it was well worth the extra. The view to Tiran Island was stunning. If you are a diving enthusiast, there is great snorkelling and scuba with a world renowned coral reef. We, however stayed on the beach and by the pool and were thoroughly spoiled.Nice touches like lemon scented water sprayed on you if you get too hot, fresh fruit granitas brought round every day, a waiter available within seconds whenever you needed one, excellent food in at least 3 restaurants, a great spa with health and beauty services. The rooms are all large with sitting area and terrace or balcony, and are very clean and well maintained. I believe this hotel was voted the best 4 Seasons in the world last year, and from our experince it was well deserved. Highly recommended. A small note, the hotel is on many levels down to the beach and even though there are golf carts and a 'train', it may not be suitable for the elderly.
