Holiday Village Red Sea
We are exceptionally proud of this beautiful all-inclusive resort, which can be found just a few yards away from some of Egypt’s most famous diving sites.
Home to an astonishing five swimming pools and one indoor Thalassic pool in the exclusive on-site spa, seven bars one buffet restaurant and three á la carte restaurants, this is a place to relax and unwind. If you want a bit of adventure, you can use the on-site zipwire, or take the kids to one of the Falcon Kids’ Clubs for the chance to make new friends and take part in fun activities.
Coral Sea Water World
Not many hotels can boast that they have an on-site water park, but Coral Sea Water World does – and guests of the hotel can access it for free!
The hotel itself is just a stone’s throw away from the beach and also has four swimming pools for guests; two of which are dedicated childrens’ pools. There is also an Amphitheatre for nightly performances, an Irish-style pub, two á la carte restaurants, a tennis court, beach volleyball and a gym.

Club Magic Life
Lined with palm trees and beautiful stonework, this resort that can be found on the beach, the Club Magic Life resort offers lots of sports and activities to guests. Including, but not limited to, football, archery, water basketball, water polo and aerobics.
Elsewhere, the resort also offers a number of bars, including a pool bar, a sauna and steam room and a relaxation pool, so you can cool down after a day of activities and sun.
Designed to look like a Nubian Village, the gardens on Nubian Island spill out onto the local beach, which leads to the Red Sea at Nabq Bay, where visitors can wade out into the shallow waters and view the local sea life, or snorkel to get a better look at the wonders of the sea.
At this resort, guests can also enjoy two swimming pools, two pool bars, three restaurants and two tennis courts.
