Upscale hotels, guaranteed sunshine and low prices have long made Sharm el Sheikh a honeypot for bargain-hungry holidaymakers. But this offer from Fleetway Travel is a cut above: a half-board week at the 5-star Ritz-Carlton for £499 per person -- that's £400 less than the usual price.
The holiday includes seven nights' accommodation in a Sea View Deluxe Room, plus daily breakfast and dinner.
The Ritz-Carlton, Sharm el Sheikh is on a private sandy beach, just outside Na'ama Bay (the hotel offers a free shuttle service to the town). As well as a dive centre and a private coral reef just offshore, it has a luxury spa, seven swimming pools and a lazy river.
Guests staying on a half-board basis can eat breakfast and dinner in The Café restaurant, which has an outside terrace and serves Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. The hotel also has an Italian restaurant, a poolside grill and Lebanese and Japanese speciality restaurants.
Luxurious touches include an evening turndown service, an in-room massage menu and an Arabian massage tent overlooking the Red Sea.
Fly from London Gatwick, Luton, Manchester or Birmingham on select dates from 29 November-14 May, 2013.
Alternatively, stay 14 nights from £699 per person, or upgrade to a Club Room and "The Club" board basis (which includes food and drinks throughout the day) for an extra £18 per person, per night -- click here for more information.
The offer includes return transfers; checked bags cost from an extra £32. Pay a low deposit of £199 per person.
