with 1 Comment

With sizzling hot temperatures, soft white sands and shimmering blue seas, Egypt is the ultimate location for a luxury break. If snorkelling in the sea with a rainbow spectrum of exotic fish, trips to the pyramids at Giza on camelback and watching the sun go down and set across the golden desert sands sounds like your idea of heaven, then this is the place for you. It doesn’t matter whether you are a couple looking for a romantic retreat, a group of friends or a family with children, Egypt has something to suit everyone. Here is our guide to choosing the right holidays in Egypt for you.


Cairo – the capital of Egypt and home to the Great Pyramid itself (which sits on the outskirts at Giza and can be clearly seen form the downtown area) Cairo also has plenty of places for culture lovers to explore and experience including opera houses, film festivals and the huge Egyptian museum. Temperatures in Cairo can reach 35 degrees in July and August, so you may want to take that into account and decide to travel at an earlier or later time of the year: this is especially worth considering when travelling with children. Cairo is also very romantic, ideal for couples. For the ultimate indulgence consider the Kempinski Nile Hotel, in central Cairo – situated right on the banks of the Nile.

Sharm el-Sheikh – The turquoise coastline of Sharm el-Sheikh can be your own personal paradise. The area is famous for its spectacular sea life, so is perfect for those who want to cool down in the sea or perhaps go diving. For those who prefer to stick to terra firma, you can take a camel or buggy safari through the desert and see pyramids up close. If you are looking for a holiday you will never forget, then consider the five star Rixos Sharm el-Sheikh Hotel which has with its own private beach and lagoon pool. If you are travelling with children, take them to Aqua Blue Water Park where they can enjoy deciding which of the 44 slides to try out first.
