Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh is doubling in size, adding 115 brand-new guest rooms and suites, making it the best luxury hotel in Sharm El Sheikh, but how can guests get the best deal or discount?
Why Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh?
On the southern coast of Egypt, between the sea and the sky lies a hillside oasis of lush greenery in a rare desert-and-sea sanctuary. Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt is uniquely nestled in an Arabian fairytale with Egyptian-inspired architecture, rooftop domes, and a multitude of waterways cascading down limestone cliffs.
Now, a multi-million-dollar expansion and enhancement project is doubling the size of the property, creating one of the world’s largest Four Seasons resorts. 115 brand-new guest rooms and suites are perched in intimate two-story buildings facing the crystal-clear Red Sea to bring the Resort’s total to 315 accommodations, including the destination’s most spacious guest rooms and suites all featuring a private balcony or terrace, some with a private pool. Designed with exotic Arabian influence, the Resort now features nine suite types, highlighted by the lavish beachfront Palace, a regal suite unlike any other in Egypt. You can see the new guest rooms in our review of Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh.
Using the following tips, we can help you get the best deal at Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh:
1. Free Benefits Are As Good As A Discount
Our rates match those on the Four Seasons website, including discounted and special offer rates, but by booking with us, you get extra free benefits, including free breakfast, free room upgrade (subject to availability), a welcome gift, and a $100 resort credit. We offer similar free benefits at over 1,000 other luxury hotels across the world.
2. Check The Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh For Offers
Usually, offers available on the Four Seasons website include their stay longer and fourth-night free deals which means that you receive a complimentary fourth night. Advance purchase deals enable you to take advantage of around a 20 percent discount on the room rate.
3. Book Early At Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out, so they don’t need to discount their rooms during the high season. At Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh, avoid the school holidays if you can, as room rates tend to be higher during these periods, and it is well worth booking in advance. As you get closer to the dates you want to stay, the room rates will usually rise. Rooms will start to sell out, often starting from the bottom room up.
4. Join The Four Seasons Loyalty Scheme
That’s a trick title! Four Seasons doesn’t reward guests with loyalty points. Most Four Seasons hotel room rates start at $500 – $1000 USD per night, and because there isn’t a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done.
If you are a premium member of an alternate hotel’s loyalty scheme, you get premium benefits, particularly if you are a regular guest. The only way of getting this kind of special treatment and loyalty benefit at a Four Seasons hotel is by booking with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
5. Change Your Holiday Dates
Where possible, re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target the Four Seasons hotel you are planning to visit, when it is cheapest and offers the best discounts. Try to avoid Christmas and New Year’s Eve. You will pay so much more during the holidays, and you can rarely take advantage of special offers or deals on these dates. Also when the hotel is full, the check-in team is less likely to find a room in the category above yours to upgrade you to.
6. Book One Of The New Rooms At Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh
We have already reviewed these rooms at Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh with photos. You will be blown away by the quality and size of these rooms and although these rooms are not cheaper, they are definitely worth shelling out for. If you can afford to splurge, suites all feature a private balcony or terrace, some come with a private pool too.
7. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a cheap budget resort.
8. Pick The Cheapest Properties
It doesn’t matter how luxurious the Four Seasons brand is. Some parts of the world are cheaper than others. Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh comes at the cheaper end of the scale along with Four Seasons Casablanca or Marrakech in Morocco. The level of luxury at these hotels is consistently outstanding, as with all Four Seasons hotels, but the cost of land and staff is not comparable between these countries. So you can get a stay at the same caliber of Four Seasons hotel, cheaper, by choosing a Four Seasons hotel in a less expensive country. We have outlined the cheapest Four Seasons hotels in the world to help you choose where to stay. This is not a discount; this is simply using common sense to book your vacation in a cheaper area of the world.
9. Use Corporate Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts. These codes are not widely available to the general public, and the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote from our luxury travel concierge so you can compare prices and benefits and get the complete picture before booking.
10. Don’t Book With Your Credit Card Travel Agency
Do you want to be at the front of the queue for your free room upgrade? Book your Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we will put you first in line for your free upgrade. You will be placed in front of guests who book via booking services like American Express Finest Hotels & Resorts.
This is because our travel agency is an official partner of Four Seasons hotels, so room upgrades for clients that we book into Four Seasons hotels are put at the front of the queue! You can still use any credit card as payment when you book with our concierge, so you still get your usual loyalty points and rewards from your credit card when you book with us.
