Jaz Crystal, Almaza Bay

Jaz Crystal Resort is Jaz Hotels, Resorts & Cruises second major development in Almaza Bay, opened only as recently as May 2009.  With a magnificent four miles of soft white sand private beach overlooking the clear and clean waters of the Mediterranean, the five-star Jaz Crystal Resort is the perfect resort for an ideal holiday to Egypt.  Just east of Mersa Matruh on the northern coast, it’s minutes from Mersa Matruh International Airport and combines breathtaking views with a safe, secluded and tranquil bay.  However, you won’t have to stray too far from the hotel complex in order to enjoy a completely relaxing holiday.  Everything you might need is within easy reach at Jaz Crystal Resort with a range of amenities and facilities that should keep all ages occupied, no matter what their interests.  Combining tasteful architecture with modernity and convenience, Jaz Crystal Resort encourages guests to unwind and relax in spacious rooms, indulge in a range of sports and recreational activities and enjoy outstanding cuisine and dining.  All this luxurious relaxation is delivered with traditional Egyptian warmth and hospitality alongside the levels of personal service guests have come to expect from a Jaz Resort.

Hotel facilities are both convenient and comprehensive and include a shuttle service to and from Matruh Airport (upon request) so there’s no hassle in getting to the hotel from the very start of your holiday.  A choice of restaurants, bars and snack bars offers a broad spread of fresh food and drink that will satisfy any taste, day or night. For the convenience of guests, the hotel offers 24 hour room service and for their reassurance an in-house doctor is also on hand.  Swimming pools (including one especially for kids) and a lagoon offer opportunities for languid lounging or strenuous water play.

After a strenuous day, unwind and pamper yourself in the Health Club and wellness centre or stroll around the shopping arcade with 10 retail outlets.  Relax and take in a live music show or cabaret regularly performed at the amphitheatre or join in the activities organised by the hotel’s animation team.  Young guests from 4 to 12 years may not appreciate the beauty and tranquility of the surroundings, but thanks to the Kids Club, you can appreciate everything this remarkable place has to offer knowing your young ones are safe and fully occupied. If it’s a perfect five-star standard beach or family holiday you crave, then Jaz Crystal Resort will combine the best of the Mediterranean with the very best Egypt has to offer for a truly memorable and carefree holiday to Egypt.
