Egypt resorts for First Choice
The largely undiscovered
resort of Marsa Alam in Egypt has been introduced
for next summer by First Choice
Described by the operator as an
“upcoming exclusive destination”,
Marsa Alam is joined by Makadi, 35km from Hurghada,
in the company’s Egypt 2009 first edition
First Choice is featuring Dreams
Beach resort, a four-sun all-inclusive property
in Marsa Alam and four-plus sun premier Iberotel
Makadi Saraya Resort in Makadi.
Prices in Marsa Alam start at £549
per adult for seven nights and £299 per
child from Gatwick in June 2009.
Egypt product manager Rebecca Hamshaw
said: “First Choice has a dedicated Egypt
brochure to highlight the continued success
of the destination and for the first time includes
the growing resort of Marsa Alam.
“The brochure also features
the ever popular resorts of Luxor, Sharm-el-Sheikh,
Taba, Hurghada and El Gouna and offers a range
of twin and multi-centre options to really make
the most of guest’s time in Egypt.
“First Choice also flies
to Egypt from a number of regional UK airports
making this an easily accessible destination.”
Also published is the operator’s
second edition Tropical 2009 brochure covering
more than 190 properties.
New to the programme is the Taita
Hills Retreat safari lodge in Kenya.
Prices at the lodge lead in at
£899 per adult for even nights, based
on two sharing in May next year from Gatwick.
