This was my second stay at the Grand Rotana within 6 months and it never fails to impress!
The hotel premises are functional & with beautiful landscaping giving easy access to the breathtaking beach front & amenities. The coral reef surrounding the beach here provides hours of incredible snorkeling fun.
The beach-front rooms offered breathtaking views and sunrises are a unique feature at this hotel. The sound & sight of the Palm Trees swaying in the wind are mesmerizing.
We stayed at the Grand Rotana in May 2012 as part of a Yoga Retreat and we could not have asked for a more idyllic setting. Daily Yoga sessions at the Lido Cafe at 6:30am is a memory I shall treasure forever!
Although the buffet luncheon was somewhat lacking in imagination the incredibly attentive and friendly staff - most notably Ahmed and Ramadan ~ who more than made up for it! The Palms Bar Seafood is delicious with generous portions and great sea views while dining.
One of the highlights of our stay was a Cruise to Tiran organised by the proficient Camel Dive Club. Special thanks go to Antonella and her team (Francesco & Tulio) for being such amazingly informative ambassadors of the Red Sea and it's hidden treasures. They gave their time generously and the boat lunch and dives they arranged were superb.
This was an amazing experience overall and I whole-heartedly recommend the Grand Rotana and look forward to going back again very soon!
