With its domed roofs, arched doorways and lofty date palms, there’s no doubt this is a Four Seasons with its roots fixed very firmly in the Middle East. Yet thanks to its prime seaside location, character-rich guest quarters and award-winning spa, it’s also a decidedly world-class escape that is suitably stunning, stylish and sybaritic. Design-wise it gives every impression of being a sprawling hillside village rising up from the Red Sea.
The 200 guest rooms forget all about 21st century minimalism in favour of a rich Middle Eastern opulence; all of them boasting private terraces, as well as marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. Views can be anything from the intimate garden courtyard to the sparkling Red Sea; the one and two-bedrooms suites designed with families in mind; the deluxe one-bedroom suite offering a private plunge pool and built-in loveseat. Yet with its cabanas, island bar and underwater music, the 1,000 sqm. main pool is all most people need; the private beach, tennis centre, snorkelling excursions and scuba-diving opportunities guaranteeing plenty of other daytime options.
And, of course, you can always chill-out in the Beauty and Wellness Spa where the lap pool is complemented by 13 different treatment rooms - don’t miss out on a Brown Sugar Scrub, just one of the totally natural Algotherm products available!
Dining here is usually an alfresco seaside affair; local specialities on offer at the Reef Grill; Asian and Mexican fare served at two poolside venues, and Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Italian specialities presented on the terraces of Arabesque and Il Frantoio. The traditional Arabic mezzeh ensures you never forget where you are.
