Egypt's Sharm el Sheikh is "heaven for winter-sun seekers", with "its string of luxury resorts", temperatures "tailor-made for languid swimming", "world-class diving" and top historical sites, says Condé Nast Traveller. This holiday is a great example -- a week at an award-winning resort on the Red Sea for £399 per person, saving up to 48% on similar packages.
Depart on select dates from 28 November, 2014-5 March, 2015. Travel in April, 2015 for £80 more, October, 2014 for £150 or September, 2014 for £200. See Luxury Holiday Collection's website for a full list of departures.
The hotel -- which was voted Africa's Leading Beach Resort at the 2013 World Travel Awards and is nominated for no less than six gongs at this year's awards -- is in Shark's Bay, four miles from the souks of Na'ama Bay. There's a spa, a mini golf course, a children's club and four swimming pools.
The food is a highlight -- dining options include an international buffet, an Italian restaurant, a tapas bar, an Indian restaurant, a Cajun steakhouse and a fish restaurant, which has an à la carte menu, weekly seafood barbecues and all-you-can-eat shrimp nights.
