Five stars well deserved
As far as we could tell, the Naama Bay Hotel is not owned by a chain and is independent. It is a five star hotel and this is reflected in the building, its facilities and its staff who were absolutely brilliant. The hotel is right in the middle of Naama Bay itself and is very well located for all the bars, shops and restaurants that Naama Bay offers. It's beach is a short five minute walk from the hotel and is small and always busy. You can, however walk along the beach or the promenade and use one of the other hotels beaches if you buy a drink from their bar. There is a main pool and health club just throught the lobby, but we preferred the four pools up the hill at the back of the resort which were a lot quieter. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. It has stuff for kids to do and couples will find it easy to find romantic hideaways. The food is good although we're no experts as we only ate breakfast at the hotel.
Unique Quality: The staff are superb. They will do anything for you to make your stay a good one. the reception guys were very helpful in helping us organise our excursions. Our pool and bar guys were always friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our house keeping guy was the smiliest person in Egypt and got a mega tip at the end of the fortnight as a result.
Directions: Right in the centre of Naama Bay. Take a left of Peace Road past the Ocean Bay Hotel.
Central Naa'ma Bay
This is a quite new hotel, only 2 years old. The location is excellent, right in the heart of Naama Bay.
Its opposite the new Naama Shopping centre and approx 200 metres from the private hotel beach.
The rooms are spacious and decorated in a modern style. I would say its 4 star accomodation.
Staff are helpful and friendly
Unique Quality: Facilites are good, food is ok. We had bed & breakfast which is more than adequate as there are so many fabulous places to eat.
Its the second time I have stayed there and would probably do so again due to the location.
The pool is quite large, but I prefer the beach as it can get quite busy.
I was lucky enough to have a nice big room with sea view on the top floor. All the facilities are high by european standards.
UPDATE JANUARY 2004 *** This hotel has recently had an annexe built into a mountain in naama bay and been extended in a massive way.
A whole new series of apartment villa style accomodation has been erected and must say its more than impressive. The manager of the hotel, Mr Mohamed Fadel took Sarah and I on a tour of the new construction and we couldnt believe our eyes.
You have to travel to the site up a mountain by golf buggy. The landscape and architecture are of an amazingly high standard.
There are some free standing villas of a real luxury standard and also some blocks of 12 rooms. I would definately stay here on my next visit in August 2004. Here there is a private pool and bar area for residents here, seperate from the main hotel.
Some of the villas are independantly owned by various Saudi Princes and other high rollers. If you get the chance to be a guest at this hotel, ask them to move you the annexe its the nutz!!
Directions: In Central Naama Bay
