This place was just what I was looking for. It is a basic hut camp right on the beach. The sea is so calm here - visibility was amazing . The food served in the restaurant was good as well. There is a shower / toilet block on one side of the camp.
We went to Nuweiba because we knew we wanted a place out of the touristy environment but still on the coast of the Red Sea (Gulf of Akaba).
Our friend Alvin made us enthousiast for this place and it didn't disappoint us.
The rooms (suites) are amazing! Kingsize bed, a TV in the living quarter and the bedroom. @ fully equiped bathrooms, 2 balconies.
The food is very good! Breakfast includes everything you might like and if not just ask! Diner is abundant!!! I just couldn't eat it all, but what I had was excellent! I ate CAMEL for the first time in my life and it was delicious!
Personel is hired with no experience in tourism places. The director is educating them to his standards. So they will not ask for tips or Baksheesh, but still give you the best service.
The rooms are excellent!!!! With views to the sea and the Sinai Mountains.
There is a swimming pool with bar and a bar on the beach.
The people working there will do everything to answer to your needs
I've been here twice now, and each time I felt like I was "home." Imagine a lovely "resort" type of bed and breakfast snuggled between the Mountains and Red Sea beach in Sinai. Rooms are only about 100+ meters from the beach. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff is friendly (they felt like family after one day). The food is great, especially breakfast. And the BEACH is AMAZING.
Most of the larger rooms have a view of the beach from the windows, but it doesn't matter because you shouldn't be spending any time in your room anyways! The beach goes forever, it's clean and the water is crystal clear. You can walk for meters and meters without it getting too deep- perfect for families. Also, another great plus is that lovely little "huts" dot the beach so that you can catch some shade when the weather or sun gets overpowering.
They're also great at setting up whatever you need- Day trips to Petra, Jordan; scuba diving and snorkeling; climbing Mt. St. Catherine and seeing the Monastery- they can help you arrange anything. OR Just stay on the beach and relax, like we did :)
Most people arrive in Nuweiba in early evening or late at night so this option is great value. Not everyone wants to land in Nuweiba and run to the nearest center such as Dahab. This is one of the best camps in Sinai and the owner is trying his best to please travellers. There are places to relax near the beach and his addition of hammocks will only attract more backpackers. The beachside restaurants serves up good dishes and a lot of the huts have locks on them which is good for single women. If you call him ahead of time, he will pick you up from most places in Nuweiba.
Great location near the beach and the owner is really friendly with travellers. The pick up from the bus station is an added bonus if it is in the evening.
i have been to sinai five or six times but Kum Kum 3 is by far the best place i've ever been in sinai. it is ran by a bedouin sheik, the hospitality is amazing, the food is amazing, the setting is amazing. there is also plenty to smoke here, because of the sheik and the relative remoteness you can freely buy/smoke grass, hash, and even jars from india. it is the only place in sinai i will ever go back to.
great beaches (for the desert), nice snorkeling maybe 25 meters from the beach, it's possible to go horse back riding, fishing, scuba diving, trekking into the mountains. an amazing place to just lay around, very friendly staff, often times the sheik invited us to eat with him. it is one of the most hospitable places i have ever been. at night they often have people come and play live music. five of us were staying together in one of the bungalows on the beach - with food and accomadation we were spending less than fifteen dollars a day - and that's eating and drinking (non-alcoholic of course) whatever we wanted.
Another option which is easy and very simple is to simply rent a bungalow. There are MANY small camps like that which offer Nothing but this kind of accommodations. You wont find there anything... just simplisity .... Sleeping in your Sleepingbag or taking with you some sheets to put on the (not clean) mattress is a must !
The most amazing thing in this places is that most of them buit the bungalows just a few steps from the water.... and its just amazing... especially to waku up in he morning into the quiet... and the sea is just right there...
The prices for night are so cheap that its just funny, a few Egyptian liras.. deends where but thats the aprx price.
16 Bungalows, a bathroom and a small restaurant with international kitchen in one of the most beautiful places of whole Sinai - best for relaxing and snorkeling.
They also arrange Camel and Jeeptours into the Sinai-Mountains.
A small ( only 14 rooms ) but very nicely equipped hotel ( though no pool ) with excellent views north over the sea at Duna.
A nice little hotel but unfortunately badly run and rather dirty.
We stayed only one night, the AC did not work and we were disturbed by too many mosquitoes.
Small restaurant, bar, beach cafe. Nicely equipped rooms all upstairs and with sea views.
I remember it still...as if it wasn't in 1994...
Cute little rooms on the beach just a few steps from the sea water.
Simple beds and closet, A/C and most simple shower... Oh and lets not forget the most important thing... the nets on the windows.. hard ti survive at the hot nights without that.
I cant remembrt how much we paid but it was quite reducules.
Ras Shutan has half a dozen small camps along the beach behind a mountain.
A peaceful, quiet, relaxing and casual atmosphere in a beautiful setting.
Rock Sea is a little camp of huts hidden behind a small mountain right by the sea, run by a German family who have fallen in love with the place and have made it home.
Peace, quiet and relaxing.
2 Stars hotel.
(just an upgrade from the huts)
has showers and air-con in the rooms electricity stops for a few hours during the day...
includes dinner and breakfast.
Notes about the phone numbers:
the first one is a number in Cairo - ask for Randa.
the second one is a number which was not active for a long time but might be re-activated already (please check the area code for Sinai)
The dining room of the hotel, by the water front, small and nice.
Modest breakfasts but quite enough i'd say.
Another hotel with many rooms by the beach.
Lovely outdoors dining room.
The rooms are quite simple although i think there were at least two levels of rooms but we didnt really need anything except for shower and bed....
Walking at dark nights looking at a sky FULL of stars smelling the sea... no lights just desert from one side and the sea from the other side....
We didn't need anything more then that... this was a pure magic... great for lovers...
Its a nice Hotel only a few rooms which are spread on the beach, (no building). There is one Small and nice dinning room (nothing fancy though) and its all just so close to the water with a great view on the sea and mountains.
The rooms are quite modest, bed shower (if the water works well...) and a closet (i didn't use it..), whats important is the nets on the windows... trust me it can be a great thing in a hot summer nights !
There is a nice small bar on the beach (on summer time) and a tents with carpets and candles where you meet everyone at night and where theres no electricity, you can have some real black egyptian Coffee and relax.
I dont remember the prices but its a worth one.
