Introducing El Quesir

Known as the “Jewel of the Red Sea” this beautiful city is located along the striking Red Sea coast, a calm and crystal clear seawater inlet coming out of the bright blue Indian Ocean. With a history dating back some 5,000 years, El Quseir is rich in history and the city still very much clings to tradition. Its ancient name was Leucus Limen and in its prime, it served as a major trade port and an important base for pilgrims travelling to Mecca. Today, the streets reflect an old world mixed in with the new, but today’s modern lifestyles have not diluted the area’s rich and interesting past. And spared from the dooms of heavy tourist footfall, the virgin coastline of El Quseir still remains beautifully pristine and is largely untouched. Here, the beaches are not sprawling with resorts and people; instead just a handful of tasteful hotels and luxury villas which have been designed to blend in seamlessly with the narrow streets and traditional architecture of El Quseir. If you’re looking for a little piece of paradise that’s off the beaten path in Egypt, this resort is perfect for you and your family.
