Red Sea resort will double in size, adding new accommodations, restaurants, recreational facilities, a conference centre and more by the end of 2021
A major expansion and enhancement project will add 22 hectares (54 acres), doubling the size of the current property and making room for more guest accommodations, dining options and pools, plus an all-new fitness facility and a large conference centre for meetings and destination weddings. A full service on-site PADI centre offers immediate access to one of the world’s top diving and snorkelling destinations.
“Since opening nearly 20 years ago, Four Seasons has been the leading luxury resort on the peninsula, a favourite holiday destination for families, friends and couples from across Europe and the Middle East,” says Simon Casson, President, Hotel Operations – Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Now as we embark, together with our visionary ownership partners, on one of the company’s most ambitious expansion and enhancement programs ever, Sharm El Sheikh is poised to become a truly world class destination for those who crave sun and sea in an authentic luxury setting that only Four Seasons can create.”
When the enhancements are complete later this year, Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh will offer a large collection of luxury suites including multi-bedroom residence-style accommodations with private pools; five new food and beverage concepts; renovated spa and all-new two-storey fitness centre; enhanced recreational facilities including a new PADI dive centre plus tennis and squash courts; and for its youngest guests, an all-new dedicated children’s club. A new state-of-the-art convention centre will more than double the Resort’s event capacity with new indoor and outdoor spaces for up to 2,000 guests.

“We can’t wait to introduce this exciting destination to a new generation of travellers from around the world,” says General Manager Sam Ioannidis. “For the many guests who come back again and again, we have so many surprises in store. Over the years we’ve watched families grow, celebrated important milestones together, set the stage for the most romantic moments, explored the abundant natural world and immersed ourselves in desert culture. Now we have the opportunity to offer our guests so much more, and our team is more dedicated than ever to ensuring that each and every stay with us is fully tailored and completely memorable.”
As part of the expansion program, Four Seasons will introduce an all-new, fully supervised kids club offering a daily schedule of games, arts and crafts, cultural immersion, active play and more. The new facility will have several dedicated activity zones, including a space reserved just for teens.
The new convention centre will double the capacity of Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh to host events for up to 2,000 participants or guests. Once complete, the Resort will boast four indoor function rooms ranging in size from 60 to 750 square metres (645 to 8,000 square feet), with an additional four outdoor spaces along with private dining experiences in the Resort’s restaurants. Selected facilities such as restaurants and the spa are also available for private bookings.
Options for group activities abound from volleyball tournaments and pool parties to cooking classes and cocktail cruises.
Highlights include a new 750 square metre (8,000 square foot) ballroom with adjacent pre-function space and 1,150 square metre (12,000 square foot) outdoor garden, and the new beachfront Royal Palm Garden, ideal for a cocktail reception to end a productive day of meetings.
