Morgenland Village: The Best Accomodation in Saint Katherines 2

Part two of my morgenland village tips with more pictures around

there is a dearth of good accomodations in the Saint Katherine Area of Sinai, which is the closest to Jebel Musa or Mount Sinai and is the starting point of Any Mount Sinai Trek. there are less than 10 hostels, bedouin tent like accomodations and hotel and the most luxurious for mount sinai standards (don't compare is to the hotel standards of Cairo!) is the Morgenland Village, located a 10 minute drive from the Monastery of Saint Katherine.

In the village are various two story hotel rooms with modest accomodations and a large swimming pool (which is rarely used by tourists since most at trekking to mount sinai at dawn).

they also have the largest collection of souvenir shops, convenience stores, bedouin shops at the huge reception area near the entrance.

according to their website:

• 24 hours front Desk.
• Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and Dinner buffets.
• Swimming pool.
• Café and Bar.
• Bedouin Tent for Barbeque and Traditional Shows.
• Internet access at the reception.
• Laundry Services.
• Wake Up Call Available.
• Currency Exchange.
• Porter.
• Ground floor bedrooms.
• Shopping Center.


Rooms

The hotel has 240 rooms from single, double, triple and hostel types that can accommodate up to 600 guests. The rooms are fully furnished, air conditioned, bathrooms are fully equipped and contains all amenities required

they have fairly average rooms and a decent bathroom and a large veranda with views of the Sinai Mountains. don't expect to have a coffee maker or free bottle water or a refrigerator. again most of the tourists going to Saint Katherine's stay for just a day or two as there are not much to do in Saint Katherines.

The Wadi El Raha Hotel: The nearest hotel to Mt. Sinai

We only slept here for 4 hours as we checked in at 8 pm then we were awakened at midnight to set off for the climb. The dining hall is a 5 min. walk under the blazing sun with a short uphill climb.

This is a compound of cottages where the facilities are basic and run-down, the beds and furnishings are old and have seen better days, the bathroom floor is slippery with rust stains on the tub. The food is not so tasty but just OK for sustenance. Why were we booked here? Because it's near (2 mins. away) the entrance of the trail to the St. Catherine monastery and the trail up Mt. Sinai. Other than for this reason, don't stay here at all.

St. Catherine Village Hotel

The village fits perfectly in the environment.

The bungalows of two apartments are made of red stone. Sometimes is quite difficult to identify it from the mountains around.

An apartment includes living room, bedroom, and bathroom with hot water, air conditioning, TV and refrigerator.

Everything it's very clean and comfortable.

Our Egyptian tour operator took care of everything and I don't know how much it costs but I supposed the price was quite convenient.

Mohammed Ali Camp, Dahab

At Mohammed Ali Camp I fond a room with bathroom that I liked. It was on the upper floor and as I opened my window I could see the sea. The room was clean and had a fan and with walls and brown wooden furniture and doors. It was a room on the corner.
Mohammed Ali has got a lot of rooms round a big courtyard, some have air-condition and some have a fan, from some you can see the sea and from others you can’t.
For my room I paid 30 LE a night.

In the courtyard of Mohammed Ali Camp there is a big “tent” with low tables and cushions where breakfast is served. I had the same breakfast every morning: toast with butter, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad (a bowl with pieces of 4 – 5 different fruits) and Nescafe.
The breakfast was not included in the price of the room but cost 13 LE. There are of course also other choices for breakfast.

Monastery Guesthouse, St Katharina

I stayed two nights at the Monastery Guesthouse by St Katherine’s Monastery. It is a nice and peaceful place. During the night loads of people come to climb Mt Sinai, but after visiting the monastery in the morning they all leave and it becomes very quiet.
The first evening I ate dinner and then went to bed to sleep for a few hours before climbing Mt Sinai. Coming down in the morning it was very convenient to have the breakfast in the restaurant while waiting for the monastery to open. After visiting the monastery I was glad I didn’t have to travel by bus some hours, but could go to my room to rest.
The price for a single room (two beds) with bathroom is 32 dollars (July 2005) and that includes breakfast and dinner.

Morgen Land Village: Surprisingly Nice

My eyes almost popped out when i saw the swimming pool. It's a huge swimming pool, i must say, bigger than alot of those 5 stars hotels!!!

It has a very tranquil and sturdy ambience, Set against the mountains of south sinai , Morgen Land Village is a very pleasant hostel.

Rooms are decent but you may wish to bring along an insect repellent. There were a lot of mosquitoes in my room.

Camp at the beach of the Gulf of Aqaba

The last night in the Sinai we had our camp at a scenic beach at the Gulf of Aqaba, south of Taba. We had the beach for ourselves.
After the totally silence of the desert, we had now the noise of rolling waves during the night. Another big difference was the climate. After the cold nights in the desert it was rather warm at the coast. At the 31th of december wearing only a T-shirt in the sleepingbag was enough.

Wadi of the Gazelles, full board

Also in our ''thousand stars hotel'' at the Wadi of the Gazelles we had a very good dinner. This time of macaroni, kofte and salad.
The both Bedouins ate together with us. The young one was the cameldriver of Chris and the old one guided our landcruiser to this place. After dinner the old man disappeared in the moonlight.
We didn't see the camel because its same colour as the environment, but in the bright moonlight we saw that the camel was very nearby.

Wadi of the Gazelles

The Wadi of the Gazelles is a very scenic place with a spectacular coloured narrow canyon.
It is a favourite place where the bedouins like to stay overnight during a two days camel ride. An old Bedouin man showed us how we could reach this place with our landcruiser.
While we gathered wood, the old man disappeared somewhere walking in the sand between the mountains.
After we made our campfire, Chris, the one of us who made the camelride, arrived in the dusk with her camel and two drivers.

The place is very scenic, somewhere in the middle of nowhere, sheltered by mountains and rocks. The solitude and the silence of the desert are overwhelming.

Wood of pillars, bed and breakfast

Not only a bed in the ''thousands star hotel'' (or tent if you prefer), but also a delicious breakfast every morning. It's amazing how our two boys from Cairo managed it everyday in the middle of nowhere. Warm bread -after a few days I find out they used the flame-thrower for that- with marmelade, eggs, goat cheese, tomatoes and lots of tea.

Wood of pillars, sheltered place for the night

Near the wood of pillars was a tiny valley, that gave us enough shelter against the cold blowing wind. Outside the Bedouin tent of the night before on the plain it was freezing cold. Allthough there were tents, we prefered the ''thousands stars hotel'' . And even in december a good sleeping bag and thermic underwear will do.
