Marsa Alam Beach Resort Brings Five Star Luxury To Egypt's Southern Red Sea Riviera

marsa alam beach resort

Marsa Alam Beach Resort, on Egypt’s southern Red Sea Riviera, is currently offering one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments for sale at low entry prices. Uptake is expected to be swift as Marsa Alam is home to year-round sunshine, pristine beaches, clear water and virgin coral reef. Add to this low entry prices, a 10% rental guarantee, direct flight access and a growing tourism market and it’s not hard to see why this is such an attractive overseas investment.

The main draw of Marsa Alam is that it is one of the world’s leading dive locations and has, until recently, only been accessible to those on ‘liveaboard’ trips. No longer limited to sea-dwelling divers only, visitors will now be able to enjoy five-star luxury on land as well as benefiting from direct access to the best of the reefs and wrecks offshore. And better still, the resort offers a whole host of other facilities and amenities besides scuba diving. As Marsa Alam is also home to some of Egypt’s most beautiful beaches, with pale golden sand and crystal clear warm waters, it’s also the ideal place for a little rest and relaxation.

The development

Marsa Alam Beach Resort lies just 45km south of the Marsa Alam International Airport and 20km north of Marsa Alam town. This perfectly located frontline development consists of 1,500 one- and two-bedroom apartments and two /three-bedroom penthouses, set in a beautiful gated 5-star resort with landscaped gardens.

All apartments are ‘high-spec’ with individual outdoor space. Prices for a one-bedroom apartment start at just €29,500. Other options include two-bedroom apartments from €39,500. Penthouse apartments feature a rooftop terrace, whilst middle apartments have balconies and garden apartments have both a terrace and garden (60m2). Floor space in a typical two-bedroom apartment is 80m2, whilst the penthouses are a generous 100m2.

The resort has its own 500m stretch of private beach as well as a coral reef – allowing even weak swimmers or non-divers easy access to the area’s colourful aquatic life. There is a dive centre with instructors on site catering for those wishing to undertake their dive qualifications. And for visitors who prefer to stay on top of the water rather than at depth, the resort will also offer fresh and salt-water swimming pools, a wide range of watersports and a marina.

Other facilities planned for the Marsa Alam Beach Resort include a wellness / fitness centre, tennis, mini golf and tour services for a range of water and desert activities. From adrenalin-fuelled 4WD desert adventures to camel safaris under big skies – there are options at Marsa Alam to suit everyone.

The resort has its own restaurants, bars and nightclubs as well as shops, supermarkets and a medical / dental surgery. And with the town just a short 20km drive away, a resort shuttle will be available for those wishing to explore the old fishing village of Marsa Alam, or sample local markets and Egyptian life.

Location and access
Marsa Alam is located in the southern Egyptian Riviera on the Red Sea approximately 300km south of Hurghada.

The popularity of the region as a diving destination led to the construction of the Marsa Alam International Airport, which lies just 45km north of the resort and 65km north of Marsa Alam town.
With direct flights from London and many other European destinations now available, and with flight times direct from Europe to Marsa Alam taking well under 5 hours, the area is seeing an explosion in tourism growth and development. Construction is currently underway on an extension to the airport terminal, to cope with the increasing air traffic to the region.

Prices One Bedroom Apartments start at just €29,500. Clients can also opt for two-bed apartments from €39,500. Two-bedroom apartments with a rental guarantee start at €43,945. The guaranteed rental return averages 10% per annum over 5 years.
