If there is one place in this world that we all deserve to know, it is Egypt. Either for the weight of history or to dive into the Red Sea. And as I always say, a remarkable journey begins by choosing a special hotel. So, here is the suggestion of two incredible hotels for you to feel safe in Egypt and at the same time connected with the best of the local culture, Four Seasons Cairo at The First Residence and Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh.
Egypt holds the memory of one of the most fascinating and ancient civilizations in the world. It was exactly a year ago that I was in the country to celebrate my birthday. It was a perfect choice that I recommend for you. The good news is that the country is already open to foreign visitors. The Four Seasons hotels are concerned with the health and safety of guests and staff and have adopted the Lead With Care program in this post-Covid-19 resumption. A care that we must take.
I entered the country through Cairo from Italy and stayed at the Four Seasons at The First Residence for the proximity to the iconic Pyramids of Giza, the main postcard of Egypt. It is worth visiting the pyramids by day and return at nightfall when the archaeological site comes alive during a show of light and sound under the stars. Through the window of my room, when the fog gave a break, I could see the outline of the pyramids. Amazing!
On the other hand, the hotel is on the banks of the Nile where the First Nile Boat is located, a gastronomic destination anchored on the river where you can choose between the Brazilian restaurant Xodó and the pan-Asian Nairu Restaurant & Lounge. This last one I checked out and definitely recommend.
From Cairo, take a plane to the resort of Sharm El Sheikh, on the Sinai Peninsula, on the shores of the Red Sea. There, is one of the best diving spots in the world with an incredible coral garden and historic shipwrecks. The Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh offers guests an exclusive dive instructor visit to the SS Thistlegorm, a British merchant ship that sank in World War II.
Egypt was one of the most remarkable destinations that I had the privilege of visiting in the world. Write down the tips with care and I guarantee that you will love it!
I wish you all a great week. XoXo
