Hotel Dana Beach Resort
This luxury All Inclusive hotel will instantly wow you with its 5 star interiors and manicured grounds set across 37 acres. As you first step foot in its grand reception area, expect a Middle Eastern design with an intricate patterned ceiling, ornate statement lighting and polished marble floors – it’s quite the greeting.
With direct access to the Red Sea thanks to its stunning beachside location, you’re in for an unforgettable time. There’s also a diving centre on hand, which means plenty of opportunity to explore the marine rich waters that Egypt is known for.
Don’t forget to take a dip in its scattering of lagoon style pools either, and with three heated options available, you won’t have to freeze in those cooler winter months. While, its evenly spread out loungers make for roomy sunbathing sessions.
Bright, contemporary rooms
All 835 rooms have a cosy ambience featuring smart furnishings and a light decor throughout. With white walls and pale tiled floors reflecting the midday heat, it’s the ultimate hideaway when you want to escape those scorching Egyptian temperatures. There’s also an overload of dark wood giving the place a traditional touch.
Standard rooms are a good size, but for extra space you can always opt for family or superior accommodation. All stays come with the essentials and can be clearly identified as part of the widely recognised Pickalbatros brand. With large windows leading to a spacious balcony or terrace, you can take advantage of your own outdoor space too. What’s more, all rooms come with an en suite bathroom kitted out with complimentary toiletries, a hairdryer and fancy rain shower.
