With such great prices being offered at our properties in June, it would be hard to ignore the heady combination of sun, sea, sand and football

28 April 2010: Football fans can keep up with all the action of the World Cup with Jaz Hotels, Resorts & Cruises this summer. Egypt’s largest hotel and Nile cruise operator is erecting special large screens across its portfolio of properties to ensure fans don’t miss a minute of this iconic sports event.

From 11 June to 11 July all the World Cup matches from South Africa will be broadcast in real time at Jaz Hotels, Resorts & Cruises’ hotels in Sharm El Sheikh, Taba, Dahab, Ain El Soukhna, Hurghada, Madinat Makadi, Marsa Alam, Aswan and Luxor as well as on nine Nile and Lake Nasser Cruise ships.

Whether taking a well deserved beach holiday in Sharm El Sheikh or absorbing the culture of Ancient Egypt on the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, fans will never be far from supporting their national team.

To complement the football there are exceptional facilities across Jaz Hotels, Resorts & Cruises portfolio of properties including luxury spas and fitness facilities; brilliant kids clubs, alluring restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, shopping, plentiful beach activities and on-site diving centres at beach locations.

Holiday deals in June start from just £399 per person for seven nights all-inclusive staying at the four-star Sol Y Mar Sea Star in the Red Sea resort of Taba, departing London Gatwick between 5 to 26 June 2010 with Peltours – or from £465.00 per person for seven nights, staying at the five-star Iberotel Palace in Sharm El Sheikh on a bed and breakfast basis, departing London (Gatwick) on 10 June 2010 with Thomson.

Peter Grace, Vice-President Sales & Marketing UK and Ireland, said, “Huge events such as the World Cup present a dilemma to football fans who don’t want to miss a minute of the tournament, but still want their holiday in the sun. The perfect solution is to watch the matches from the comfort of our hotels or cruise ships. With such great prices being offered at our properties in June, it would be hard to ignore the heady combination of sun, sea, sand and football.”
