At around 3.5 hours flight time from Dubai, last-minute travelers can easily enjoy a revitalizing weekend break, while holidaymakers looking for a week or more of complete relaxation can make the most of the country’s diverse destinations, combining city and seaside stops to create the ultimate summer getaway. No matter how long the stay, Four Seasons properties across Egypt are welcoming travelers from the GCC with a 20-25% saving on accommodation rates for the season.
Four Seasons – Cairo
Experience the world’s longest river in all its glory. Beat the traffic and travel across the Nile from either Four Seasons Hotel – Nile Plaza or The First Residence – on the traditional wooden sailing boat called a felucca, included as a complimentary service of all guests this summer. As well as enticing tourists to awe-inspiring views of the river’s magical symphony, the 30-minute sail offers unforgettable sights of the capital’s beaming nightlights at dusk.
Visitors can also look forward to losing themselves in the mysteries of the city as they unwrap the time-honoured beauty rituals of the Pharaohs at Four Seasons spas before spending the rest of the day or evening by the pool – blanketed by the breath-taking views of the botanical gardens and the magical Nile. As the sun goes down, step outside the Hotel to capture the sights and sounds of local life and culture. And who can escape stealing a moment or two to re-connect with the past – from where it all started – the Great Pyramids?
Four Seasons – Alexandria
The legendary destination founded by Alexander the Great offers ample old-world charm for its visitors. Located strategically in the city, famously known as the Pearl of the Mediterranean, is Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano where sea, sun and sand meet in a welcoming resort-style enclave.
