I have just returned from Sofitel Taba Heights, a hotel I have stayed in many many times. This was the first time though that I had visited on my own and I need not have had any worries.
As usual the staff were so friendly, welcoming and helpful and I immediately felt at home and safe and secure in this peaceful haven. Even though there had been a flash flood a few weeks previous, Sofitel is unaffected and it was business as usual. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
I spent two idyllic weeks here and was very reluctant to leave. There are plenty of facilities if you wish to expend some energy as well as spa and salon treatments for relaxation.
Snorkelling from the jetty is a very tempting activity but there are lots of beautiful fish view without even entering the water.
Rather than gazing out over endless miles of sea, the view over a short stretch of water is of Jordan and Saudi Arabia which at night comes alive with many lights and is an amazing sight.
Though there are now no flights from the UK to Taba Airport it is very easy to fly into Sharm el Sheikh and do the road transfer to Taba Heights. Although the transfer time is longer than from Taba Airport this slight disadvantage is far outweighed by the fact that one is not tied to travelling on a certain day with a Travel Agent. There is the choice of several airlines, the chance to travel on any day of the week and the opportunity to stay for any duration.
I cannot wait to go back to this unique, peaceful haven in a beautiful hotel.
