Places to combine Sanctuary Sun Boat III with

Red Sea

Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh
Settle into luxury at The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh, an expansive property that embraces the Red Sea shore. The hotel has been carefully designed to allow you space: suites are laid out in small clusters on terraces, all offering unrestricted Red Sea views. The resort itself features high domed ceilings and traditional design elements, from the welcoming eight-pointed star to the neoclassic columns and handcrafted lanterns. The suites at The Oberoi range from Deluxe Suites to Royal Suites, all of which feature traditional Egyptian decor. Relax in the airy lounge of a Deluxe Suite, or slip into the cooling waters of the private pool in a Grand Suite. Take a seat for breakfast or dinner in one of the three restaurants at The Oberoi. The hotel’s main restaurant offers international cuisines that can be enjoyed in the dining hall, the open air courtyard, or on the shaded terrace, all of which are complimented by traditional arches and stunning views no matter the time of day. Alternatively, restaurant Zaafran serves Indian dishes such as Jheenga Masala and Aloo Jeera under a ceiling speckled with tiny spotlights that shimmer like stars in the candlelight. There is also the Pergola, which offers you the opportunity to dine poolside under its wooden dome. Here you can savour Mediterranean or Far Eastern cuisine after a dip in the infinity pool. After your meal, retire to The Bar for a drink to end your evening. This grand indoor space is adorned with Spanish marble and polished wood, featuring french doors that lead out to a canopied area where you can enjoy the view of the azure water. Experiences to take part in during your stay at The Oberoi include sailing around the nearby islands, during which you can also go snorkelling, and scuba diving in the Red Sea. The hotel has its own on-site, Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) certified dive centre, which offers a range of sea dives suitable for experienced divers, along with certified PADI courses. If you prefer serenity, visit the spa for a signature Oberoi treatment, or an Ayurveda inspired ritual.

Red Sea

Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh
Nestled beside the Red Sea with year-round sun, Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh welcomes you into its own slice of paradise. Within the resort’s grounds you’ll find panoramic views featuring limestone cliffs that enclose a wide stretch of private beachfront, all framed by crystal-clear waters. There is also access to a protected marine reserve. The beauty about Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh doesn’t end at its idyllic location. There is a wide variety of guest rooms, suites, chalets, and signature suites to choose from, all of which feature Egyptian-inspired architecture, surroundings of lush greenery, and spacious layouts. Bask in the sun on the terrace of a Superior Palm-View Room, relax in the waters of the 18 square metre private heated pool of an Imperial Suite, or pamper yourself in your own spa treatment room at The Palace. Once you eventually decide to leave the luxuries of your abode, you’ll find a plethora of restaurants within the resort. If it’s Mediterranean seafood you’re craving, restaurant Bullona is a sought-after favourite with its crudo station and lagoon-side seating. Middle-Eastern specialties are served at Arabesque buffet-style, whilst a meal at Il Frantoio would allow you to dine under the stars as you indulge on hand-cut ravioli or homemade squid ink pasta. If you’re wanting a light snack or a refreshing drink, there are multiple outdoor restaurants and bars to choose from only a few steps from the resort’s five pools. For facilities, if waters deeper than pools are more your style, Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh has an on-site Dive Centre and jetties, where you can explore abundant reefs and historic shipwrecks. There are also 76 dive sites, many of which are only a few minutes from the resort by boat. If there’s a special occasion to celebrate, the resort allows guests to charter one of the two yachts available.
