Nights are beginning to draw in and there is a fresh chill in the air. Surely this can’t be the end of summer already? After a rare and fabulous few months of warm, sunny weather, we want to cling on to summer for as long as we possibly can.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to stave off winter forever, but we can offer the next best thing…
Whilst Britain drowns its sorrows in a wash of drizzle and snow this December, you could be soaking up the rays in temperatures still comfortably in their 20s, guaranteeing you some wonderful winter sun. And did we mention that it’s at a 5 star, all inclusive resort on the stunning Red Sea Riviera? That’s right:
Steigenberger Aqua Magic
Situated on the promenade of Egypt’s popular resort of Hurghada, the Steigenberger Aqua Magic is an impressive, modern complex, boasting an assortment of activities and facilities to entertain even the most diverse of holidaymakers. There’s no doubt that whatever your interests, you’ll have an unforgettable holiday at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic.
The centrepiece of the resort is the outdoor pool with its fabulous, Swahili-themed aquapark, featuring five full-size slides, a space bowl, a lazy river and a kids’ pirate ship. Both children and adults will have a whale of a time, splashing around till their heart’s content.
In between racing down waterslides and floating down rivers, catch your breath on a sunlounger on the sun terrace and rehydrate yourself with a refreshing drink from the pool bar – one of five bars in the resort.
If the fun all gets a bit too much for you or being a big kid isn’t quite your thing, then you can escape the madness and indulge in some relaxing spa treatments before unwinding in the sauna or steam room. You can also take advantage of the peaceful atmosphere and incredible views of the adult-only rooftop pool and bar and just pretend that your flight home doesn’t exist…
Other activities for guests to enjoy at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic include pitch and putt and an electronic driving range; a boccia and beach volleyball field; a fitness centre with mini gym; table tennis and table football; billiards; a diving club and aqua centre at the adjacent sister hotel; a traditional Arabian souk; daytime activities and regular evening entertainment. And don’t forget the hotel-run kids’ club and interactive teen room to keep the youngsters entertained.
After a jam-packed day of fun and games, you will no doubt have worked up an enormous appetite. Guests will be spoilt for choice with the huge range of food options on offer at the hotel. There is the main buffet restaurant, an international á la carte rooftop restaurant, an Italian á la carte/buffet restaurant, a beach restaurant and bar and a food court which is open from 5pm until 10:30pm every day. And, as if that wasn’t enough, a brand new sushi, teppanyaki and noodle restaurant is due to open its doors in November this year.
At the end of the day, there’ll be nothing better than getting into a comfy bed in a spacious and contemporary room, all of which have a balcony or terrace.
The Steigenberger Aqua Magic boasts 24 hour all inclusive as well as 24 hour room service, a 24 hour reception and free Wi-Fi in selected areas of the hotel, ensuring guests receive the best possible hospitality throughout their stay at the resort.
Its position in the vibrant resort of Hurghada makes for the perfect base to explore the rest of the historic country of Egypt, whether that be the Valley of the Kings in Luxor or the incredible Great Pyramid of Giza in Cairo, it’s all accessible from the Steigenberger Aqua Magic.
So whether you’re looking for a winter getaway to relax, explore or be active and adventurous, the Steigenberger Aqua Magic is sure to be a hit with all those who walk through its doors.
