Fort Arabesque

The Fort Arabesque is pulled up alongside the Red Sea, with a sandy beach and coral-filled waters on its doorstep.

This place has a whole load of highlights. For starters, it’s right by a sandy beach. Then there’s the pool scene – 4 in total – and bedrooms that come with sea-view balconies and Egyptian woven textiles.

Gardens cocoon the whole hotel, filled with palms, hibiscus and jasmine. Scattered throughout them you’ll find a handful of eateries, plus a stylish spa offering Thai massages and couples’ treatments.

Fabulous hotel and staff deserving of 5 stars!

First went to Fort Arabesque in 2011, we have since visited 12 times and number 13 is already booked.. from the time you get to the hotel you are greeted with a warm and friendly word from the reception staff to make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean and comfortable with great sea views, the beach and snorkelling are fantastic! What makes us keep going back to Fort Arabesque? The STAFF, they are the friendliest people I have ever met and always put you the guest first. From management, reception staff etc even the gardeners there is always a smile as you pass by. I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a relaxing holiday with the best hotel staff in the world.More

Great Hotel, deserve the 5 stars

The hotel is big, the beach is great. The staff was nice. The rooms were clean. The idea of having 2 separate restaurants is really genial. The food was good. At nights sometimes they bring shows but if not the animation team performed terrible plays better to avoid it. Try to travel in groups.More


Great hotel with amazing beach!

I Went here for 7 nights in the middle of June, and went away with 2 friends. It was really relaxed and an enjoyable stay. The hotel is well kept and our room was always kept spotless, we were on the ground floor, this had its use as it was only a short walk to the beach. The beach was really nice and had plenty of sunbeds to choose from, its best to take snorkels with you as there is plenty of coral which had some amazing fish. The beach also includes the dive centre where there are trips and activities to do. The food buffet was your usual hotel food, but it did vary each night with different cuisines. But certainly had different varieties for each individual. We spent our evenings in the red rock bar where they served plenty of different all-inclusive drinks, as well as offering other drinks such as cocktails where you had to pay extra. All staff across the hotel were friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. One evening my friend had lost his phone and the reception staff brought a big light to try and find it. They found it during the night and phoned to let us know in the morning. Quick note on Egypt travel; From the moment we arrived to the time that we left it couldn’t have felt safer. We had vehicle checks when entering each hotel. You can tell that Egypt has stepped up measures in security, this was reflected particularly in the airport when leaving to come home with 2 body and baggage checks. Hurghada airport was a really nice modern airport which was well kept and maintained, on a par with English airports.More

Toby H,

Beautiful beach and good snorkeling

We spent just one week in the hotel, very quiet place because the hotel wasn't fully occupied. There is a reconstruction in the hotel, can't say it was disturbing or too much noisy. Rooms and the hotel are very cleaned, I was in Egypt third time, I can really say staff really take care about the cleanness, customer satisfaction. It's one of the older hotels, in our case doesn't matter, cause we were looking for good snorkeling and beach. Food was ok, nothing special in comparison with other hotels, a lot of germans, Italians stayed here. I found here approximately 20% of young couples, if you are looking for the calm place you can really find it here, if you wanna have fun, especially at night better to find something else. Oh, and the lady from the beauty saloon is very friendly and real professional. More

Absolutely fantastic hotel

Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. I have been to Egypt many times but this Hotel comes out tops. The hotel is big, well appointed, well laid out and clean, the beach is long and plenty of sun beds, showers nearby. Beach guards on duty, coral fantastic, everywhere and every amenity in close walking distance. The staff are tops, extremely helpful when needed. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I was in a ground floor room and had no noise from upper floors etc. The terrace outside was quite private. The main restaurant was immaculate as was the food...plenty of choice and well presented right down to the chefs!! On the day of my flight home I unfortunately was hospitalised, however the hospital was also fantastic. Besides the point maybe, but the 5 star hotel I then went into for 1 night before flying home was of no comparison and was under par with respect. Yes ***** stars for Fort Arabesque and I hope to return. Thank you for a brilliant stay.More
