Located directly on the sandy beach, appreciate stunning views over Makadi Bay during your stay.

There are a range of fantastic facilities at Fort Arabesque: the resort contains five outdoor swimming pools (three heated depending on weather conditions), a sun terrace with free sun loungers and parasols, a swim-up pool snack bar, a beach bar and much more.

Activities on offer at the hotel include tennis, water sports and diving, and if you're looking to unwind after a lively day, why not head to the spa and experience the sauna or even a massage?
