All Inclusive Holidays Egypt
Home to the pyramids, excellent beaches and beautiful weather, it is easy to see why Egypt is on many travellers’ lists. In recent years, Egypt has become a popular destination for those seeking an all-inclusive holiday. All inclusive holidays combine the costs of flights, accommodation and on-resort food and drink. This makes it easier for individuals to organise their perfect Egypt holiday.
The food and drink offered by all inclusive holidays varies from resort to resort, but in most instances the resort will provide individuals with buffet-style meals at set times throughout the day. Many all-inclusive resorts in Egypt also have a number of bars and cafes where customers can get food and drink between meals. It is worth mentioning that all inclusive packages may not cover some expensive drinks, such as imported beers or champagne.
As all inclusive hotels understand that many of their visitors will be spending a lot of time at the resort, many Egyptian hoteliers have made considerable effort to ensure that their guests are well-entertained as well as well-fed. Indeed, most hotels have pools and evening entertainment and some even have water parks!
What to Do
With great facilities and easy access to food and drink, it is easy to see why many travellers do not venture beyond the walls of their Egypt all inclusive resort. However, they are certainly missing out as there is plenty to see and do beyond the hotel!
Home to a number of Egypt’s most famous attractions, Luxor is one of the most popular holiday destinations. The most-visited attraction is the Valley of the Kings. Once known as the Great Necropolis of Millions of Years of Pharaoh, here you can explore the tombs of Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. The Karnack Temple complex, which is usually just called Karnack, is another must-visit for anyone on holiday in Luxor. The complex is home to a mixture of buildings from Egypt’s past and is great for the whole family to explore!
Beyond the walls of all inclusive hotels, there is plenty to see and do in Sharm El-Sheikh. Popular activities include diving and snorkelling at renowned Red Sea dive spots and exploring the Muhammad Natural Park. In addition, no trip to Sharm El-Sheikh is complete without visiting the city’s fascinating Old Market or riding a camel along the beach.
Hurghada is situated on the Red Sea coast and is a popular destination for those looking to enjoy a beach holiday. Most of the all-inclusive hotels in Hurghada have their own private beach for their residents to use. However, do not despair if your hotel does not have its own beach as you can pay a nominal fee for access to another resort’s beach or visit one of the area’s public beaches. When holidaying in Hurghada be sure to visit the city’s Old Town, El Dahar. Here you can sample authentic cuisine and pick up traditional souvenirs from the daily bazaar.
The amount of time that it takes to get from the UK to Egypt depends on where you plan on staying in Egypt. However, on average, you can expect your flight from London to Egypt to take around 5 hours.
