Red Sea Riviera beckons tourists

The Holiday Inn Resort Safaga Palace ... a favourite Red Sea destination.

Egypt's Red Sea Riviera is getting ready to welcome an influx of tourists, as holiday makers from around the Middle East prepare to visit Epypt's leisure playground which offers access to some of the best diving spots of the world.

Holidaymakers, diving enthusiasts, as well as conference and incentive organisers, are being lured by the Red Sea's mix of sun, sand, surf, and a wide choice of historical sites and outdoor pursuits, from snorkeling and scuba diving to desert safaris and horse riding.

Surrounded by white sand beaches, with magnificent coral reefs, the Holiday Inn Resort Safaga Palace is a paradise for experienced and novice divers, windsurfers and other water sport enthusiasts.

It offers a health club with sauna, whirlpool and steambath, while diners can chose from a number of restaurants and casual eateries catering for many palates. Children have an Ice Cream Boulevard, as well as a Kids Fun Club.

With 327 guest rooms and suites, the resort is an ideal venue for small and large conferences and incentive visits. It has a range of meeting facilities, specially tailored "Conference Network" meeting programmes, and a fully-equipped business centre.

Along with its two sister hotels, the Holiday Inn Resort Sharm El Sheikh, and the Holiday Inn Resort Amphoras Sharm El Sheikh which opened last September, it presents visitors with a Red Sea choice.
