This luxury resort designed by French architect and designer Alain Jaouen offers a 21st-century oasis in the Sinai. The public areas have a simple, spacious feel right out of the late 1960s that are reminiscent of interiors from films like The Thomas Crown Affair or Goldfinger (minus the evil technological gadgets). Pale colors and straight lines dominate from the pool areas to the restaurants. The rooms line up side by side on two terraces below the main building allowing everyone a full view of the ocean. There's a contemporary cottage feel to the decor, and rooms open out onto spacious private balconies or patios. The resort's new spa opened in late 2010.
