Fort Arabesque details

Sleek, stylish and with plenty to do, the Fort Arabesque won’t fail to wow you.

Combining luxury with traditional Egyptian touches, the Fort Arabesque is incredibly stylish. From the outside, its stone walls and rectangular towers look like they’ve been plucked from a Medieval castle. Step into the lobby, though, and you’ll find the traditional is offset with touches of 21st-century glamour. Stone pillars stand proud against a backdrop of freshly painted walls and spot-lit ceilings. Likewise, the bedrooms mix contemporary décor with rustic tiled floors and wooden furniture.

But the Fort Arabesque is more than just a pretty face – its facilities are every bit as impressive. Outside, the swimming pools steal the show. There are five in total, not including the kids' pool, all with lavish extras like floating gazebo bars and water features. They’re surrounded by terraces and sub-tropical gardens – as well as being just footsteps from an enormous beach.

When you fancy upping the tempo a bit, there’s plenty to choose from. Down at the beach, there’s a great selection of watersports, including sailing and windsurfing. The hotel also has its own diving centre – ideal whether you’re a complete beginner or you’re looking to brush up on your skills. Elsewhere, you’ll find a tennis court and football pitches.

Last but not least, the hotel’s dining scene deserves a special mention. The main restaurant serves up pan-global buffets, while the beachside grill specialises in steaks and seafood. Its candle-lit tables are just metres from the sea, so the views are spectacular – especially at sunset.
