Great garden for walking, and really good place for rest. If you like you can walk around garden and to feel wind from the sea over your body. It's can be really refreshing time for you.

Nestled on a hill overlooking the royal Mediterranean Bay, take a journey into the glamorous past, a world of legendary elegance and opulence, and El Salamlek Palace Hotel & Casino. The Palace is tucked away in the lush landscaped Montazah gardens nestled on a hill.

This is the historic hunting lodge of the Royal Family. The rooms are old and elegant. Lots of royal family photos in the lobby to browse through, including wedding photos so you can see what a production they were. And the hotel has an excellent restaurant as well. Staff are very friendly.

The rooms are just huge! To really enjoy book a room in off-season and get the big suites...This is how the guests of the Royals used to spend their summer stays... But all is old and just about maintained. Nice experience and you are propelled into the past....
