AMARAYA CLUB – KAHRAMANA PARK/GARDENS
All the pages of this website, except this one, are now finished. I am sorry that this one is still under construction.
This resort has been referred to in the recent past as Kaharamana Gardens Resort and sometimes as Amaraya Club, which can be confusing. As of 18 March 2021, it seems from the absence of recent reviews on either Tripadvisor or Holidaycheck that the resort might be closed or may have changed its name so please check with the resort or your agent before booking.
Amaraya Club is situated 38 km (24 miles) south of Marsa Alam Airport and 23 km (14 miles) north of Marsa Alam town.
108, including 58 standard rooms, 10 family rooms and 40 family chalets of which half are ground floor with direct access to the pool. Each chalet is comprised of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and a small kitchen.

As of 18 March 2021, we were uncertain as to whether we could find the correct TripAdvisor review page listed for this resort possibly because it might have changed to a different name. There is still a page under the title Amaraya Club but the last review posted relates to a stay back in August 2015 and the ratings are therefore too dated to be relevant.
Tripadvisor currently ranks Amaraya Club (as of 18.03.21) 63rd of 77 hotels in the Marsa Alam region, but that is based on just 14 reviews, with 7 (50%) reviewers describing the resort as “very good” and 4 (28.6%) as either “poor” or “terrible.” Another 3 described it as “average”.
Previously (as of 13th February 2017) Kahramana Gardens (as it was then sometimes known) was ranked 45th out of 75 hotels in the region, not a big change from its former rank of 37th out of 66 hotels in August 2013. 77% of reviewers rated it as either “very good” or “excellent” (down from 81% in August 2013) while only 7% rated it as either “poor” or “terrible” (a slight improvement on the 8% who rated it as “poor” or “terrible” in August 2013.)
Please also note that, as of 18 March 2021, we weren’t able to find any reviews for the resort on Holidaycheck. However in March 2018, the last review posted on Holidaycheck dated back to August 2016. This appeared to be the only review then accessible (presumably due to the age of the previous posts) and it gave the resort a perfect rating of six out of six stars with similarly perfect scores in all categories except for location which the reviewer ranked at 5.0 out of six stars.
When we had previously checked on 13th February 2017, the resort had an average score of 4.5 stars ( up from 4.0 stars in August 2013 ) with the best scores for sport at 4.8 ( up from 4.2 in 2013 ), service at 4.7 ( down slightly from 4.8 in 2013 ) and rooms at 4.6 ( a big improvement from just 3.8 in 2013 ) and lower scores for gastronomy at 4.0 ( a slight improvement on its score of 3.9 in 2013 ) and location also at 4.0 ( well up on its 2013 rating of just 3.2).
