The Red Sea
Egypt’s world-wide reputation is attributed to the history of an ancient civilisation, but there is more to Egypt than its venerable past.
Head out to the Red Sea on your luxury honeymoon for blue skies and warm, lapping waters. Discover pristine coral reefs, technicolour marine life, and sublime scuba diving – the perfect complement to the cultural highlights of your honeymoon. For glorious views over its own private stretch of coastline, enjoy a stay at the elegant Oberoi Sahl Hashish.
Sharm El Sheikh
After months of nuptial preparation, it may be, justifiably, your only desire to unwind and relax on a warm, sandy beach during your honeymoon in Egypt. The Red Sea paradise of ‘Sharm’ ticks more boxes than the perfect partner: crystal-clear waters, sheltered bays, palm tree-lined promenades and fabulous restaurants. Settle into the best spot on the beach, and bask in the afterglow of the biggest day of your life.
Your once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon to Egypt would be incomplete without first-hand experience of the Land of the Pharaohs.
Take to the skies above Luxor in a hot-air balloon and enjoy panoramic views of the world’s greatest open-air museum. Leaving at sunrise, your scenic flight over Egypt's iconic monuments promises to be one of the highlights of your luxury honeymoon. View the magnificent temples of Karnak and Hatshepsut, among many other privileged sights.
Follow the flow of the meandering Nile River from the sky as it leads you to one of the most famous temples in Egypt – Abu Simbel. Enjoy a spectacular bird’s-eye view of the colossal rock temples which lie on the western bank of Lake Nasser as you make the 40-minute flight from Aswan.
Aswan and the Nile
Glide across the polished marble floor of the Sofitel Legend Old Cataract, Aswan and check in to the Agatha Christie suite for your luxury honeymoon in Egypt. It is widely believed that she penned Death on the Nile during a stay here. Take high tea on the terrace, and watch the surface water bubble and break.
