Port Ghalib, Egypt

25 minutes drive from the airport we arrived at the luxurious 5* Oberoi Hotel, Port Ghalib.

This hotel offers all suite rooms with sunken marble baths overlooking private walled gardens. There is a private beach within the 48 acres of grounds. An outdoor swimming pool, The Banyan Tree Spa and excellent restaurants featuring fine cuisine. We then travelled down to Port Ghalib where we stayed at the 5* deluxe Intercontinental Palace Hotel.

The hotel has a lovely sandy beach, outdoor swimming pool and lagoon set around lush gardens with a multitude of sport facilities. It has a Six Senses Spa, 3 restaurants including one at the Marina close by and not to be missed is after dinner drinks on the Terrace of the Look Out Bar.

I went snorkelling, enjoyed a ride into the desert in a 4×4 vehicle and had a camel ride. Port Ghalib is a new and upcoming resort with a lovely marinath at features restaurants, cafes, bars, a traditional Egyptian Bazaar and is surrounded by luxury, sophisticated hotels. This resort is ideal for a sporty or relaxing break in the sun.
