The Sultan Bey Hotel offers the best of both worlds with a beautiful lagoon setting in the heart of Downtown Kafr El Gouna. The pale salmon and beige domes and arches inspired by traditional Nubian architecture disappear in places under the blooms of flowering bougainvillea. Situated on Kafr Island, the oldest part of El Gouna home to colorful shopping galleries, bars, and restaurants. Meandering alleys through the Sultan Bey Hotel’s well-tended gardens lead to the waterfront, where a beautiful swimming pool and small private beach await. Many of its 115 rooms were recently renovated and now feature new electronic equipment and upgraded bathrooms. The hotel is equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds, and swimming is facilitated by stone steps giving access to the lagoon.
