Il Mercato Hotel & Spa
There’s something elegant about the II Mercato Hotel & Spa, from its 5 star rating to its picturesque Red Sea views and its gourmet a la carte dining – revel in your lavish facilities. The 24-hour front desk is on hand to wait on your every need, while the spa combines local therapies with state-of-the-art amenities dedicated to your well-being.
Setting the scene is its lake-size swimming pool and the inside option is just as impressive taking centre stage in the hotel. A buffet restaurant and chic drinking spots make up the rest of the complex alongside an animation team who provide infinite entertainment during your stay.
Contemporary rooms fit for comfort
It wouldn’t be an elegant stay without rooms fit for royalty and thanks to its stylish black décor, plush double or twin beds and crushed velvet furnishings it’s hard not to feel like a VIP. As standard guest will benefit from a flat screen TV, mini bar, air conditioning alongside tea and coffee making facilities. Late sleeper? Don’t worry, the complimentary wake-up call will do just the trick ensuring you don’t miss out on breakfast.
Upgrade to a superior or deluxe option and you can also enjoy fluffy slippers, bathrobes and a deep soak in your own private bathtub. In terms of views, take your pick from cityscapes of Sharm El Sheik, which when illuminated after dark is one for the camera, or gaze out onto its shimmering pool scene and lush garden landscapes.
Fill your face
Take advantage of your All Inclusive offerings with a sprawling buffet spread at your disposal from morning, noon and night. Whether you fancy Italian fare with a cheesy slice of pizza fresh from the oven or grilled meats off the barbecue, there’s something to tantalise all taste buds. Kids will be just as impressed with a buffet station specifically for mini appetites with chicken nuggets, chips, beans and other British classics.
For more sophisticated nights, there’s a la carte options with a set menu which varies slightly from evening to evening. Not to mention, there’s a snack shack for convenient eats and light bites. For your cocktail fix, head to its duo of bars and sip classics such as Sex on the Beach and Mojitos under the hot Egyptian sun.
When you’re not cannonballing into its lagoon-shaped pool or catching a tan from your ultra-comfy sunlounger, there’s a set of entertainment options to ensure your days are jam-packed. Find yourself lured into aerobics classes, ping-pong tournaments or taking advantage of snorkelling facilities which provide direct access to the Red Sea’s most alluring underwater world. When dusk falls prepare your singing voice for a karaoke battle or laugh out loud at the stand-up comedy acts, the animation team work around-the-clock to provide the best performances.
In the heart of Sharm El Sheikh
Within walking distance from the Old Market and Al Farnar Lighthouse fill your stay with authentic Egyptian shopping and old-world relics. When you feel like hitting its party scene, Naama Bay and SOHO Square are just three miles away. Here, you’ll be drawn in by the neon-lit Pacha club which has a reputation around the world for its big-name DJs. Not forgetting the iconic Hard Rock café with memorabilia from beloved musicians past and present.
