The Red Sea Riviera/Sinai region
Sharm El Sheikh is situated at the tip of the beautiful Sinai peninsular .
Here you will find year round sunshine, it hardly ever rains so anytime of the year is a good time to visit. Plenty of beautiful beaches with protected areas of coral and amazing marine life.
The Red Sea is well known for its coral reefs and divers come from around the world to enjoy this beautiful area.. If you are not a diver... dont worry, you wont miss out ! buy a mask and snorkel and you too can enjoy this underwater world. Diving trips and snorkelling trips can be easily arranged.
If diving is not your taste many other activities are available, quad biking, horse riding, camel trekking, water
parks, kite surfing, ice skating, dolphinarium, ten pin bowking golf ..........all are available locally.
When you have had enough of the beach and all the activities why not take an excursion to places of interest ie. Pilgrimage to the top of Mount Sinai to see the sun rise, - a never-to-forgotton experience and well worth the effort. and then on to St Catherine's monastery, the coloured canyon, a trip into the desert to experience life in a Beouin camp, day trip by boat to Ras Mohamed national park for sightseeing and diving. No trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to Cairo for the pyramids and Luxor for the Valley of the Kings. All can be arranged..
Egypt can be whatever you want it to be.... action packed.. a historic discovery.. or calm and relaxing.. the
choice is yours . We pride ourselves on giving you as much information as possible to ensure your
holiday is truly memorable. For first time visitors to Egypt ,we can talk you through everything you might
want to know.. from information regarding visa's to the best place to eat. Our guests have found our
personal information very helpful.
Sharm El Sheikh
There are plenty of lovely beaches in the area. The Tirana Sunrise beach is just 750 metres away and can be accessed by arangement with the hotel for a small charge as can their aqua park. 5 minutes ride takes you to Nabq where we have access to several lovely beaches. This is a lagoon area lovely shallow water, ideal for children. A promanade runs alongside this beach with electric bikes for hire and places to eat. Camel and horse riding are available from here. Access passes to these beaches along with transport is available from admin for a small charge.
Kite junkies kite surfing school is located here and offers introductory courses for beginners. This is run be Dianne and Kev and Pedro and Marcus who have built up a fantastic reputation. See kite junkies website for further details.
Sharks Bay is reknown for the diving and fabulous marine life. If diving is not for you , a mask and snorkel will suffice to experience the sights below the turquoise water. This beach is just a short drive away and offers a real Egyptian feel with Bedouin cafes, shops, lots of water sports including diving, banana boats and brilliant swimming and snorkelling.
The restaurant on the beach is fantastic in the evening, give it a try... very Shirley Valentine with your
table on the beach and the sea only a few metres away. Transport can be arranged to this beach also.
Nabq is only 5 minutes away by local bus or taxi. This is a very up and coming area and has expanded greatly recently. Here you will find shopping malls, bars, restaurants, Egyptian wares, and 24/7 supermarkets who will deliver to your door for 4LE!
Some great restaurants... The Peking House is excellent, along with On Fish, Italian Restaurants
McDonalds, Starbucks, TGI Fridays and many more. The Zone offers a great evening dining and dancing. Take aways are available from most restaurants in the area. Use our mobile and give them a call if you dont want to
move out.. Have an evening swim and dinner delivered to you on the terrace ..... perfect. Take away menus available in the apartment.
Many well known designer stores have now opened in Nabq, Levi, Timberland, fabulous bag and shoe shops, designer sun glasses.
The newly opened Soho Square is just a short drive away, offering plenty of international restaurants for that special night out, night clubs, designer shops, Ice skating, and bowling alley ice bar and English pub. Or just sit and take it all in and enjoy the spectacular fountains at night.
Hard Rock Cafe is now open and proving to be a very popular venue also the dolphinarium has relocated her.
20 mins by local bus will find you at Naama Bay, the centre of night life in Sharm El Sheikh. Here you will find more restaurants, bars, casino's, clubs and all the shopping could possibily require. Enjoy Hard Rock, TGI
Fridays. Little Buddha.. The Indian restaurant at the camel bar is popular.. or go on the roof terrace and have
a meal and a Sheesha pipe .
Old Sharm still retains the real Egyptian feel and this is where the local people do their shopping. This area is great for eating out, try a typical Egyptian restaurant or the many fish restaurant where prices are very reasonable. Have a go at haggling for your souvenirs, a great way to make new friends and have a new experience, relax and have a cup of tea and enjoy yourself. Just remember the price they ask is never the price you will end up paying and you do not have to buy, if you dont like the price leave and look elsewhere.
Taxi's are widely available but do agree a price before getting in. Alternatively, try the local blue and white bus service. These run every few minutes, there are no bus stops, just put your hand out to stop one. They are really cheap and it should not cost you any more than 5LE to get to Naama Bay, 2LE to Nabq .Give it a try. Transport can also be arranged on site.

"Need to Chill Out? This is The Place"
Just returned from Egyptian Experience Apt S1. From the minute I decided to book to returning home Carol was excellent. This is the first time I have ever been self catering in Sharm and I must say it was lovely. The Apartment has everything you need just like being at home. I did something I don't do at home and that's sit and watch dvd and chillout. Would I go the Apartment again? Absolutaley!!!
Thank you Carol for letting me stay in your home.

When we arrived we were collected from the airport and taken to S1. On arrival we collected keys from Brian and shown in the apartment... All very Smooth!
Apartment has brillent amenities, everything you need in kitchen, great choice of DVDs in lounge, mobile phone and wifi was very useful. Swimming pools were also great.
Thanks so much Carole being so efficient and letting us her apartment!
We will be back!

"Lovely apartment in very relaxing surroundings"
We have just returned from lovely week in apartment S1 Egyptian Experience. Carole has been very helpful from the moment we booked our holiday, she has thought of everything. The apartment is very nice, clean and very comfortable. The apartment backs on to the swimming pool which is great. The staff are lovely and cannot do enough for you. We will definitely be going back.
We continue to be so pleased by the positive reviews we have received and appreciate so much the time that guests take to comment.
Thank you so much for leaving your review and hope to see you back at S1 in the future.

"Loved it, will be back next Christmas I hope"
The owner of this rental property goes out of her way to be helpful and it shows. Unlike other rental properties I have used, this one had everything, just as described, with much more room than you would normally expect for the price paid and included personal sun loungers and mats. Furthermore, the person in charge on site, was also excellent, meaning we had a totally stress free and enjoyable holiday, particularly good as this was our first time in Egypt.
The location was quiet, which was what we wanted, although the property is on the flight path from the airport, but I actually enjoyed seeing the planes and took many photos, it does not impact on the location in any way. Internet access was not available and we struggled to get mobile Internet working, but hopefully this will be resolved by the admin office and it appeared to be a similar problem throughout this area.
Trip advice was excellent and super value, go for the all day boat trip on the Red Sea, £18 for the day, including snorkeling, equipment, tea, coffee, soft drinks, lunch, collection and return to apartment, book on site to save money.
For a quiet, friendly holiday, with guaranteed sun every day of the year, this is the place for you.
Thank you once again to all who have taken time to leave a review. It is so appreciated. I feel so pleased that so many of you have booked or want to book again this year.
Re the internet, sadly I was unaware that this had become unavailable, I hope it will be up and running again soon. However I will be looking into providing a dongle in the apartment when I am next in sharm. Any new guests who must have internet, please contact me and I will try to sort something out prior to your holiday. Best wishes and thanks to all.

"Brilliant apartment, resort and location!!"
We really enjoyed our stay in S1. It is like a home from home with all the facilities you could hope for. Nicely decorated and cosy. A good surprise was the DVDs and books on offer as well which we made good use of!! It is a great family apartment with lots of room and a great balcony overlooking one of the three pools. It is the first time we have taken our little boy to the resort which we have visited many times and he really enjoyed it. Especially the little toddler pools.
Norita from the resort made us feel very welcome and can help with requests etc such as taxis which is a great help especially for people new to the area. There are sun lounge cushions provided and a little shop and laundry if you need it. I would definitely recommend getting the welcome pack; great after a long journey and until you get your bearings. There is a great supermarket down the road and also a wealth of leaflets and brochures in the apartment so you really can eat whatever you fancy!!
Would definitely recommend this apartment for a great holiday!!!
