Located on a one kilometre stretch of private coastline, the Resort’s palm-filled gardens, mosaic-covered fountains and Arabian architecture are the perfect draw for travellers looking for a combination of mountains, desert and sea. Combined with one of the best house reefs in the region, five swimming pools, a highly acclaimed Spa, and an expertly run dive centre, Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt has long been a Red Sea favourite.

The Resort’s 89 brand-new spacious guestrooms and suites, (starting at 75 square metres) can be found perched in intimate hideaways facing the Red Sea. The expanded accommodation ranges from one and two bedrooms, with a private pool option and large balconies and terraces that provide space to unwind with scenic vistas whilst soaking up the year-round sun. The guestrooms and suites provide modern interpretations of authentic Arabian design elements and Arabesque details that enhance the spaces, including arched windows and shades inspired by mashrabiya screens and are complemented by a colour palette inspired by Sharm El Sheikh’s golden sands and blue waters.

For those looking for a more palatial escape, The Palace is a regal three-bedroom standalone beachfront residence designed to host royalty, international figures, and high-profile guests. Spread over 565 square metres of opulent indoor space, it is the largest signature suite in the Resort. With a private fitness room, spa treatment room, dressing room, office space and complete residential facilities, this escape offers the ultimate in Four Seasons sophistication. Lush gardens, a large terrace for entertaining with a dining table that seats eight, and two swimming pools just steps from the private beach create opportunities for outdoor living in a space that elevates seaside living to new levels.

“We’re introducing a new era of seaside luxury to what has been one of Egypt’s most loved resorts ever since it opened its doors 20 years ago,” said Sam Ioannidis, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. “By doubling the property in size, we’ve created new accommodations, recreation facilities and restaurants while the legendary and exceptional Four Seasons service remains the same.”

The expansion of the resort has created a new dining destination, led by Executive Chef Sebastiano Spriveri, a 27-year Four Seasons veteran. Bringing flavours from around the world to Egypt’s Red Sea shorelines, Spriveri and the team take guests on a journey from Japan to Latin America, via the Middle East. “Our restaurants introduce world-class cuisine to Sharm El Sheikh, with the addition of four new concepts that have never been experienced here before,” said Spriveri.

In addition, the resort shelters nine new indoor and garden venues offering a stage for unforgettable events in extraordinary settings. The new beachfront Royal Palm Garden, surrounded by 3,000 swaying Royal Palm trees, with vistas of sky and sea and twinkling stars is a statement backdrop guaranteed to inspire.
