Fort Arabesque Resort and Spa

Fort Arabesque is on the edge of the Red Sea. It’s as close as you can possibly get to the white-sand beach and the coral-filled waters.

For those non-beach days, there are four pools on site. These are packed with waterfalls, cute bridges and even a swim-up bar. Plus, the grounds they’re in are full of palms, hibiscus and jasmine. For mealtimes, you’ll find a couple of big buffet restaurants with sea-view terraces.

There’s also a beachside grill that’s a great spot for a candlelit dinner. Seafood and steak are on the menu, along with salads grown in the hotel’s own garden.
