The Egyptian Vacation Club is actually a company that branched out from another company that was acquired in the early 1980's. In 1983 the owners of the
Egyptian Vacation Club Mr. Anwar Helal, and Mr. Ahmed Hosni, bought Safaga Travel. Safaga's work concentrated on three main areas at the time: Classical, Nile
Cruise, and Safari. During this time Safaga handled clients from all over the globe. Even though tourism in Egypt was growing during this period, it was still
restricted to closed groups that did not really provide any mass volume of cliental.
As charter flights began coming to Egypt, Safaga seized the opportunity and began expanding and opening new offices in Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh as well
as organising charter flights to both destinations. A great necessity to find accommodation for the growing number of clients was created. As a result, they rented
out Kanabesh, one of the first and few hotels in Na'ama Bay in Sharm El Sheikh, operated and managed it. Safaga Travel also rented, operated, and managed other
hotels like Bawaqi in Nuweiba. During its long history Safaga has worked with a large number of Travel Agencies from all over the globe.
The First Hotel/Club
Finally, in 1991 , Sharm Club was built and began its operation in cooperation with Viaggi Del Ventaglio, an Italian giant in the field of tourism. Sharm Club had
some important features that distinguished it from other hotels in Sh arm El Sheikh. It had the first worldly known club formula in Sharm El Sheikh; having a big
group, almost exclusive to one nationality, mainly Italians, come for a certain period of time on an all inclusive basis. It was also the first hotel to open outside
Na'ma Bay, in Tower Bay, built on an environmental friendly basis. The location of Sharm Club, its natural beauty, and the serenity that is embodied by 1t truly
makes it a very rare experience to whoever comes here. We like to call it the Jewel of Sharm.
