Looking for the perfect spot to relax for the day?
Update January 2021
Whether you’re a homeowner, a resident here to stay, renting a property for a few weeks or stopping by for a relaxing weekend as a guest at one of El Gouna’s luxurious hotels, you can choose from a range of activities from our assortment of distinct locations to suit your preference for the perfect day at the pool or beach.
Due to high occupancy rates, room ‘day use’ is not available here in Gouna, but that won’t stop you spending the day lounging pool-side with a cocktail, sunning it up at the beach or keeping it cool in one of the many pools available – guests can feel free to contact their hotel to request an early check-in or late check-out, the hotel teams are flexible and will be more than happy to help arrange your request.
With a myriad of pools and beaches available at El Gouna’s hotels, it can be difficult to choose just one, so if you’re looking to entertain the family, planning a celebratory day out for a group of adults or a romantic retreat for two, you’re guaranteed to have a 5-star experience by following this comprehensive Gouna-guide to pool and beach day usage.
During the annual El Gouna Film Festival, the Ancient Sands Golf resort and Residence is often called home to the glittering stars of the big screen, however, guests can enjoy the strip of private beach from 10:30 until 18:00 all year round.
