With four restaurants, a popular spa and a prime location right on the Eilat seafront, there’s little wonder that the Queen of Sheba is one of the Red Sea’s most popular luxury picks. Indulge in a muscle-melting Thai massage before tucking into a long, lazy alfresco lunch at the Ebony restaurant beside the spectacular hotel pool. Neutral rooms, with splashes of blue, suit holidaying couples just as well as families.
