This hotel is architecturally stunning, and in an unbeatable location at the tip of the Red Sea with a private beach at the foot of the infinity pool complex, which in turn is reached by stepping out of the lobby. Spotlessly clean, wonderful, friendly but discreet staff, and a breakfast fit for a king. Good location for the town too....
