‘Great room. Beautiful beach. Tasty breakfast. Great location. Fantastic service.’
Fort Arabesque in Makadi Bay, Red Sea, Egypt

Fort Arabesque is a luxury 4-star resort and spa, situated on a sprawling 900 metre long beach overlooking the beautiful Makadi Bay. Part of the prestigious Fort Collection, which offers opulent hotels across Egypt, Fort Arabesque benefits from top amenities, spacious rooms, and a fantastic location.

Twin, double, and large family rooms are available at Fort Arabesque, with all rooms offering the ultimate in comfort and design. However, you probably won’t find that you’re in your room for very long, as there is so much to see, do, and experience across the resort! Choose from five swimming pools (three of which are heated), a gymnasium, or a wide range of sports such as tennis, volleyball, and football. The Thai-inspired Vareena Spa offers a selection of relaxation and health treatments, while the onsite shopping arcade is the place to buy gold and diamonds, local leather, and souvenirs. In the evening, there’s plenty of choice for dining, including Club 159 offering Brazilian barbecue and live reggae.

At Fort Arabesque, you can enjoy the best of the Hurghada coast: an exotic destination known for its coral reefs and stunning Red Sea views. Close to the hotel you’ll find some of the region’s best attractions, such as the aquarium, waterpark, and the Soma Bay Golf Club. However, Fort Arabesque also benefits from being located roughly halfway between Hurghada centre and Safaga. Head north for downtown Hurghada, a lively destination with restaurants, bazaars, and vibrant atmosphere. Or head south to Safaga - a quiet, working port town famed for its rugged desert cliffs and breezy environment!
