Bask in the healing properties of the Egyptian sun, sand, and sea
While Egypt is best known for its antiquities and beaches, visitors will find that the country has much to offer as a destination for health and wellness. In fact, alternative medical practices, like aromatherapy and reflexology, date back to ancient Egypt. The climate in Egypt also makes it an ideal place to escape cold winters and bask in the healing properties of the sun, sand, and sea. In the cities, near the sea and in our desert oases, you can find luxury spas, yoga and nature retreats, fitness centers, wellness cruises, therapeutic treatments, and organic products that will help you relax and rejuvenate.
Nestled within the bustling metropolis of Cairo, you can find wellness centers and spas with all the pampering and wellness amenities that you need.
