All services are payable locally for an additional charge.

Please note: Children under the age of 6 years are not allowed at Hotel Shams Prestige. Infants may be accommodated at the discretion of the hotel. There are not special facilities for children at this hotel. We would recommend the sister Imperial Hotel next door for families with young children.

The Kitesurf centre is situated the left of the hotel approximately 50m along the beach and the windsurf centre is located approximately a 5-10 minute walk along the beach (600m) next door at the Hotel Shams. More >

Our Opinion
Ideally located right next to the kitesurf centres. We recommend the 'Ultra All inclusive' package with free massage, sauna and scuba diving introduction and Superior Beachfront rooms with jacuzzi and sea view and roof terrace with bar for sundowners.
