Red Sea Riviera - El Gouna
Life as it should be !
One of the Red Sea’s most sought after destinations, El Gouna is spread across islands interlinked by turquoise lagoons and tucked between mountains and the sea.
This vacation oasis is home to several hotels, from intimate inns to lavish five-star resorts
It is situated 22km from Hurghada International Airport and just a short flight away from all Europe’s capitals.
The sun always shines in El Gouna, it is windy six days out of nine and raindrops hit the ground once every six years. Then you find the most beautiful flowers in the desert.
Egyptians are very nice, friendly and helpful people. Sometimes there might be a minor language barrier, but then patience is the key-word…after all there is no need to hurry on your holiday.
El Gouna is a fully integrated town carefully developed on 15km of seafront and designed with a unique grace and cohesive architectural style. Five of its hotels have received the coveted Green Globe award for being ecofriendly. Downtown is home to traditional bazaars, cosy cafes and Art Village showcasing local handicrafts and hands-on activities. The picturesque marina harbour town, designed by Alfredo Freda, offers exclusive shopping and world-class dining options.
After sunset , El Gouna’s nightlife pulses in numerous venues.
A wide range of sports and activities is available for all age groups.
Perennial sunshine means year-round golf on the 18 hole USPGA Championship golf course.
The renowned Banyan Tree Group provides retreats for the body, mind and spirit at the two Angsana Spa outlets in El Gouna, one of them at the course clubhouse.
El Gouna is also a real ‘divers paradise’ with 10 diving centres and easy acces to some of the Red Sea’s finest reefs and wrecks.
Other activities on offer include tennis, squash, beach volleyball, horse and camel riding, go-karts and miniature golf.
Those who can tear themselves away from El Gouna, can enjoy a myriad of excursions into Egypt’s Eastern desert, including 4x4 or quad bike safaris and starwatching expeditions, as well as sightseeing trips to the historical treasures and natural wonders in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan.
