Voyager Travel Direct is giving away a free Red Sea holiday via its company Facebook page. The prize includes a 7 night all inclusive holiday for 2 people staying at the deluxe Siva Grand Beach Hotel. Return flights, transfers, 20kg luggage allowance and all meals and drinks are also included in the prize.

The Siva Grand Beach Hotel is set in its own section of private beach overlooking the crystal waters of the Red Sea, just 8km from Hurghada Old Town. The hotel offers a range of restaurants and bars, live day and evening entertainment, a large outdoor swimming pool, a selection of sports activities and a daily shuttle bus to the old town centre.

The resort of Hurghada can be found on the east coast of Egypt just a 20 minute transfer from the airport. Average temperatures range from 20 degrees in winter through to 36 degrees in summer making a holiday to Hurghada a popular choice with the British all year round. Originating from a fishing village, the resort has a stunning harbour and now offers over 200 hotels many of which have private beaches. It forms part of the beautiful Red Sea coast and meets the eastern desert proving stunning sunsets.

A Red Sea holiday has long been a popular choice for scuba divers, with a number of PADI diving centres in Hurghada offering both day trips and overnight trips. Popular dive sites include Giftun Island, Thistlegorm, Abu Nunas and Safaga. The Siva Grand offers scuba diving lessons in its swimming pool for guests who are new to the sport. Other sports offered in the hotel include aqua aerobics, water polo and beach volleyball. The hotel also has its own aqua centre where guests can hire pedalos, or try windsurfing or water-skiing.

Entering the competition to win the all inclusive holiday is really simple. Liking the Voyager Travel Direct Facebook page gives the user access to the 'Win a Holiday' app where entrants can answer a question about the holiday and submit their details to enter.

Verity Eyre, General Manager of Voyager Travel Direct said: "We took the decision to run the competition through our Facebook page as we thought this medium would work well with our client base and we wanted to try and increase social interaction with our brand. Our development team built an app within Facebook to host the competition and we took great care to ensure we were within Facebook’s guidelines. We're really pleased with the level of interest that the competition has generated and as a result we are considering giving away another holiday in the future. We selected this particular prize as the Siva Grand is one of our top selling hotels and we have never had any complaints about it so we are confident that the winner will have a fantastic holiday.
