Sultan Bey

Guests at the Sultan Bey get fantastic views, a private stretch of sand and easy access to another island. The whole hotel’s styled to look like a traditional Egyptian village, so expect perfectly manicured gardens, winding alleys and plenty of arches.

The main pool is split in half by a bridge. One side’s just for kids, while the other’s for everyone. It’s located so close to the lagoon that the waters practically touch.

The nearby pool bar also caters for people sunbathing on the private beach. For main meals, there’s a big buffet restaurant at base and another on Zeytouna Beach.
