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.

First visit to Egypt

Just back today and wanted to share our experiences we had at the Fort Arabesque...Well, it was amazing - the staff are so attentive.. especially the Beach/Sunset bar..nothing is too much for the West Wing restaurant staff.. Don't bother going to the East Wing to eat even if you are staying there... We did not even bother, but am sure the staff are just as attentive if not harder worked then in the West wing restaurant. I have read some reviews about the Saga Crew - well they made our holiday... they were all informative, very kind and were great fun to be around - many having been years in a row. Take mosquito repellent etc.,More

Second visit

Our second visit, the first for our honeymoon and we celebrated our anniversary here. Still the same, everything wonderful had a great time. service brilliant. Waiters excellent. Food very good too. Got a room In west wing with beautiful view over pool and sea. The coral still fabulous - great snorkelling and swimming off the beach with the beautiful fish. Loved it. Only fault was the day reception staff who I found very arrogant , the evening staff lovely. Also wifi is rubbish could only receive in reception in west wing, and bar and reception in east wing and When you pay for it it's very annoying. Definitely go back. Went with Saga first time, but saved a lot of money with Sunshine this year.More

Fort Arabesque, some good, some not so good!

Stayed at Fort arabeque beginning October. Weather fantastic, Beach fantastic, service fantastic. Stayed in the west wing. Room was a bit tired, but relatively comfortable. First day we went to the restuarant in the East wing. Not recommended. The west wing is far quieter and more orderley. Went to the west wing for every meal thereafter. Also the bar in the west wing is quieter and the staff in this bar were brilliant. Every evening they had some live music in the west wing bar. The music was probably not everyones taste, but at least there was some. All drinks were served out of cans or bottles including the beer. Fridges in the west wing bar where you could help yourself. Please note: This hotel is advertised on the SAGA website. Need i say more. Altogether not a bad holiday.More

Value for money

We have just returned home from another 2 weeks at The Fort. We were lucky enough to stay in the West Wing which was nice a quiet. Meet other guests that were at the Hotel, like us for the third time this year. Husband dived again with the amazing IDive within the hotel grounds. We never tired of the food, celebrated my husbands birthday meal at The Pavilion, this was amazing and such good value. The only niggle is the cane furniture around the pool within the West Wing, it really does need to be changed. We will be back March 2015, never tire of it. The staff remembered us which was nice and they work so so hard to please us guests.More
