The Lighthouse of Alexandria was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a 100-metre tall monolith that towered over the city and brought visitors from all over the world. Today, Egyptian architects are committed to more down to earth but no less impressive structures, with none more elegant than the new Beach Villas at Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano. Strung out along the Mediterranean coast, the one-, two- and three-bedroom villas each feature their own private pool and sun terrace, plus indoor and outdoor living and dining areas and a fully equipped kitchen. Inside, the blue, gold and white interiors create a sense of calm and tranquillity in the bright and airy villas, accentuated by contemporary artworks inspired by the sea.
Beach Villa guests can access a full complement of perks, such as an in-villa barbeque prepared by the resort’s executive chef, private one-on-one sessions with personal trainers or fishing lessons guided by a local expert.
