With our partner easyJet Holidays, these are the best luxury hotels and family-friendly resorts in Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada

Parrotel Aqua Park Resort

Parrotel Aqua Park Resort
Soak up the sun at one of several pools

Best for… relaxing on the Red Sea Riviera

A sun-soaked, private paradise on the Red Sea Riviera, with world-famous snorkelling and diving spots just a short paddle away. This vast, family-friendly resort feels like a Pharaoh's playground: the sprawling aquapark has the ideal equal ratio of bars to pools (1:1), and the restaurants include a laidback bistro and a Middle Eastern-themed cave of wonders. Suites abound for larger families, but there’s plenty on offer, from spas to camel rides, if you’re after a more sedate break.

Royal Albatros Moderna

Royal Albatros Moderna
This large resort lies between the mountains and the sea

Best for… staying in

So grand it feels like its own coastal city, this huge resort has literally everything you need for a blissful beach break inside its palm tree-bordered estate. Watch the sun set over the sea with a cocktail in hand, throw shapes at the hotel’s own nightclub, then clear your head with a morning swim (or trip down the water slide). There’s a classical, grown-up elegance to its smooth marble interiors and gardens, but kids are just as welcome.

Charmillion Club Aqua Park

Charmillion Club Aqua Park
Paradise at the poolside

Best for… thrill seekers

Slide into summer at this riotously vibrant resort, equal parts theme park and smart, contemporary hotel. If the tsunami slide, wave pool and flying boats sound a bit high-octane for your holiday, sneak off to the secluded sauna and Turkish bath. Everything comes with a side of Egyptian flare, from the Shisha Corner to the bright, themed restaurants. If you prefer your waves a little less choppy, pristine Nabq Bay and its beaches encircle the park.

Sol Y Mar Naama Bay Hotel

Sol Y Mar Naama Bay Hotel
A slice of paradise

Best for… sightseeing in style

An elegant resort in the heart of Naama Bay, Sharm El Sheikh’s hub for wining, dining and diving. Despite being at the heart of everything, there’s a real sense of seclusion to this pretty hotel: rooms in its cool, whitewashed buildings overlook the outdoor pool, with the seaside a stroll away through the palm trees. There are plenty of restaurants and bars if you want to stay in; if not, Sharm’s top attractions – Mustafa mosque and the musical fountain – are nearby.

Jaz Mirabel Park

Jaz Mirabel Park
There's excellent snorkelling near this extensive resort

Best for… natural beauty

Dream among the dunes at this extensive resort, which is surrounded by the extraordinary beauty of Nabq Bay – mountains on one side, the sea on the other. A wonderful base from which to explore the technicolour reefs of the nearby national park, it’s also packed with family-friendly facilities like a water park, kids' pool and water slides. Too much like hard work? Unwind at the Shisha cafe, or in the luxurious spa, or just by feasting on the view.

Steigenberger Alcazar

Steigenberger Alcazar
Luxury that's fit for a Pharoah

Best for… ultimate luxury

This magnificent five-star hotel is just minutes from the airport. Nestled between Nabq Bay’s spectacular hills and the sandy beaches of the Red Sea, it's a destination hotel built for watching the moonrise over the mountains with a cocktail in hand. Its 35,000 square metres of private, sandy beach offer some of the most opulent loungers on the Bay; at your feet are some of Egypt’s best-preserved reefs, which make for spectacular snorkelling. From the exquisite spa to the patisserie and Japanese Sake bar, 'palatial' doesn’t do this place justice.

Movenpick Resort Sharm el Sheikh
Tick this beauty off your bucket list

Best for… breathtaking beauty

Overlooking stunning Naama Bay from an unparalleled position on the gentle dunes of the Red Sea shore, this deluxe hotel is as beautiful inside as out. Its Arabian-inspired decor is sumptuous but uncluttered – what you want when every terrace, balcony and window looks out across the curve of the vibrant bay, which glitters after sunset with the light from Sharm’s restaurants and bars. As well as multiple private beaches, the hotel has a spa, on-site diving centre and horse stable; restaurants offer fine Egyptian dining and world cuisine, and the cocktail bar is one of the best in the region. A hotel for the bucket list.

Enjoy dinner by the pool

Best for… a peaceful getaway

A rarity in Nabq Bay, this elegant resort sits on a lengthy stretch of private sandy beach, with nothing but turquoise water between you and Tiran Island – renowned for its diving. Sharm’s best nightlife, shopping and restaurants are on the doorstep, but the quiet beach, with its poolside bar and thatch umbrellas feels like a paradise island. The hotel’s destination restaurant overlooks its large, indoor pool, and there’s a spa, squash courts and on-site nightclub. Worth staying in for.

Three Corners Sunny Beach

Three Corners Sunny Beach
The perfect place to work on your tan

Best for… family fun

There’s something for everyone at this resort hotel, close to the heart of Hurghada’s vibrant and bustling beach. The family-friendly resort boasts an amazing on-site water park with water toboggans, multiple pools, slides and geysers, as well as a calmer pool for grown-ups that offers more in the way of sunny terraces than adrenaline-fuelled excitement. Its restaurants and bars – including a sunset pool bar – offer plenty of variety, but it’s a short walk along the beautiful pebble beach into town.

Jasmine Palace Resort and Spa
A palace by the pool

Best for… a royal stay

Rising above the huge pool like a palace, this magnificent hotel on the Red Sea balances all the vibrancy Hurghada is known for with acres of tranquil gardens and golden, sandy beach. Its smart, terracotta-coloured towers, domes and terraces look like a small city – and it boasts its own mini-bazaar, selling spices and papyrus, as well as a kids’ cinema, pools and volleyball court. With its own spa and views out over the lawns to the sea, it really is a treat.

Best for… water lovers

More than a resort, this extraordinary hotel curates experiences that bring you face-to-face with the Red Sea’s renowned marine life. It has its own diving academy, a submarine, a glass-bottom boat and an aqua centre, and the beach is less than a five-minute walk from any of its lobbies.

Whether it's adrenaline or atmosphere you opt for, the many, varied bars and restaurants will keep you fuelled for your beachside adventures.

Jaz Makadi Oasis Resort

Jaz Makadi Oasis Resort
Make a splash at this luxury resort

Best for… personal touches

Despite being one of the largest resorts in this part of Hurghada, this picturesque hotel – a strip of warm, terracotta-coloured buildings and palms between the pool and the blue sky – is famously hospitable. Staff can help tailor your break for relaxation, at the pool (or poolbar) or health centre, for example; or for Instagrammable moments at its extensive private beach, the star attraction, where you can try your hand at everything from windsurfing to sailing and diving.

Baron Palace Sahl Hasheesh

Baron Palace Sahl Hasheesh
Views all the way to the sea

Best for… a luxury break

An utterly majestic hotel overlooking an unspoilt, private, white-sand beach that stretches the length of the hotel where it meets the Red Sea. The estate is huge, but the majority of the land is given over to gardens – think palm tree jungles just outside your window. All this makes the Mediterranean-inspired palace itself feel like a hidden treasure, which it is. Or rather, it's a treasure trove: its spas, pools, amphitheatre, cool bars and smart restaurants blend effortlessly in with its smooth, marbled corridors and sumptuous lobbies.

Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh
Old meets new at this exclusive new resort

Best for… exploring Egypt

A smart beachfront hotel in one of Hurghada’s most exclusive new developments. The hotel’s modus operandi is 'tranquil hedonism', which makes sense when you start exploring the contemporary restaurants, sun-soaked bars, aqua park, shopping mall, luxe rooms and pools that sit between the resort and its long stretch of private sandy beach. Sahl Hasheesh’s cool 'Old Town', a hub for restaurants and bars modelled on an ancient medina, is a short walk away.
